Monster List of Picture Book Agents

Monster List logo by Dana Carey.
So you're looking for a picture book agent? You've come to the right place!

I know that tracking down agents who represent picture book writers who do not also illustrate can be difficult and time-consuming. That's why I created The Monster List of Picture Book Agents!

In the list, you will find agents that represent picture book writers who do not illustrate (but illustrators do not despair, most accept queries from writer/illustrators too!) Each listing provides a link to submission guidelines. If there are many agents at an agency I added names of agents looking for picture book writers at the time of this update (11/20/2019), otherwise read through the agent bios to find agents representing picture book writers. A * by the agency indicates that they are closed to picture book submissions at the time of this update but are a good agency to know about and keep an eye on for submission opportunities.

The Monster List of Picture Books Agency is for reference only and is not an endorsement. Please do your research and choose wisely as to which agents might be the best match for you.


Agents are listed alphabetically by agency. Feedback is always welcome. If you know of a good picture book agent who is not listed or find information that needs to be updated, please contact me.
