Jodell Sadler is the founder and director of KidLit College, a webinar, classes & critique community for writers and illustrators. She also serves as one of two editorial agents at Jill Corcoran Literary. Titles she's represented (ranging frm from board books and picture books to teen novels) include, If Animals Said I Love You by Ann Whitford Paul; Snow Beast and Dog Adoption Day by Phil Gosier; Hedgehog's 100th Day of School, by Lynne Marie and Faraway Friends by Russ Cox, among many others.
Jodell is looking to add picture book, graphic novel, and middle grade author/illustrators to her list. She seeks fiction and nonfiction with humor and heart and enjoys books that emotionally connect and provide reader interaction. Fresh voice and concept is best in board books, picture books, chapter books, and middle-grade projects (illustrated and graphic), especially those that incorporate nature, wildlife, cultural experiences, contemporary challenges or mystery, as well as biographies that celebrate the difference one person has made in the world.
