At Sadler-Caravette Children's Literary, we are interested in your children's book and your career. Whether it's an early reader, picture book, middle grade or young adult—fiction, nonfiction, folktale or freeverse, we are interested in helping your story get out to the right people and make sure that it is in the best shape it can be.
We are committed to helping you with the total package. Our agency is interested in marketing you! We will use the sources that are uniquely available to all of us today: Social media, the Internet, schools, conferences, and public speaking to name a few. We are interested in developing a marketing strategy that will help get your book out there in today's tight market.
When we work with you we become a team. We work together to make you a success, not only in selling your book to the right publisher but also to ensuring that we create the kind of consistent buzz that gets the word out and keeps it out for the sales to be effective.
We are writers ourselves. We write picture books, middle grades, young adult—all genres, really. We were so committed to learning our craft that we earned our MFAs in Writing for Children & Young Adults from Hamline University. In fact, that is where we met. Having gone through an MFA program we realized what a warm and nurturing environment it was and realized the great need for that collaboration as writers to further both our writing craft and careers.
We also realized that we loved reading other people’s creative work and that we enjoyed helping writers craft their stories to publishable. We share a great satisfaction in that. We are both dedicated to the field of children's literature. Whether teaching literature, doing academic research, or helping children come to love literature like we do, it's that gift that children's writing brings to the world that thrills us and compels us.
We are both an active members of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and open to speaking at conferences around the country.
