Because the big house publishers are only accepting submissions through agents, it is more important than ever to keep up with agents in a rapidly changing industry. Although their websites will usually give a better clue as to what they are looking for, in general, following agents on Twitter will give you up to the minute information. It’s also a great way to get a feel for their personality and style. Here are 25 kid lit agents to follow on Twitter (in no particular order).
