Free Fall Friday – First Pages – Crystal Kite Award – Robin Newman

blog red fox sfh

Check back next week for the four first page critiques by Stephanie Fretwell-Hill from Red Fox Literary.

Stephanie Fretwell-Hill represents both authors and illustrators of board books, picture books, middle grade, and young adult. She will consider stories in any genre, but looks for a strong voice, rich and multi-layered plots, and stylish, classic, or quirky illustrations. Most of all, she loves anything that really makes her laugh.

How to submit: Stephanie will be open to unsolicited submissions for six months (ending mid-July 2016). Please send art samples, complete picture book text, or first three chapters of a novel (and a query) to querystephanie [at] redfoxliterary.com.

ROUND TWO OF THE CRYSTAL KITE AWARDS IS OPEN FOR VOTING
