P's Perspective: Samantha McFerrin

Right off the top, I'll let you know. Harcourt Children's Books does not accept submissions from agents or authors that have not been previously published by Harcourt!

They do not read unsolicited manuscripts.

Still, the following info may be helpful in the future:

Samantha looks for books with:
Emotional punch
Good endings

She's currently looking for
YA Fic
High quality poetry collections

NO Early Readers

Advice to writer/Illo teams: Okay to submit as such, but be prepared for Harcourt to like one over the other. In other words, coming in as a team doesn't guarantee you'll be taken as one.
