Meet & Pitch is a series of Zoom events that five of the smaller SCBWI regions – Alaska, Hawaii, Nebraska, Nevada, and Brazos Valley, TX — are collaborating on to bring notable agents and editors to our regional members. The 90-minute format will follow an introduction of the agency, manuscript wishlist, Q&A, and a pitch session/first look from participants.

This month we are pleased to present Eve Adler, an agent at Red Fox Literary! Eve Adler worked as an editor for over 16 years before becoming an agent. She edited books mostly for ages 0-12 at Macmillan, Penguin Random House, and Union Square Kids, including a NY Book Show Merit award winner, New York Times Bestseller, an Amazon Best Book of the Year, a Sydney Taylor Notable Picture Book, and many titles that garnered starred reviews. In 2015, Eve was a Publishers Weekly Star Watch Honoree.

Eve Adler’s MSWL

Eve is building her list with authors and illustrators of board books, picture books, early readers, chapter books, and middle grade projects. She’s drawn to stories that make kids feel comforted, loved, and understood; to diverse voices; to ideas that break the mold; to projects that meet kids where they are developmentally; and to books that expand kids’ worlds while helping them understand their own. Although she is currently closed to queries, Eve will accept submissions from registered participants after the Meet & Pitch event .
