From agency website:
I am most interested in author-illustrator picture books, early readers, chapter books, heavily illustrated middle grade and interesting novelty formats. I am looking for a diverse array of voices, perspectives and styles and respond well to zany with heart, a celebration of the wonder of life and complex characters that explore our inner lives. More specifically, I am looking for:

projects that focus on Jewish culture and the modern inclusive experience of being Jewish

author-illustrators who take a creative approach to book making

stories that explore cultural practices and beliefs as well as lived experiences of people from diverse backgrounds

BIPOC and LGBTQ+ book makers

clever, interactive and tactile novelty formats

2/11/21: EQ with pb (marginalized creator)
2/26/21: Nudge with offer of representation. I asked if they could let me know their decision by [specific date - 10 days from date email was sent]
3/02/21: They asked if I could resend my initial manuscript because they couldn't open it. I sent. Issue was on their end. I received a followup email a day or two later asking for more materials. Said they would get back to me "ASAP."
No response. The deadline has since passed and I've accepted an offer of representation from a different agent.

Twice, Ms. Silverman had to ask me to resubmit my material - not sure what caused the problem. Anyway, it's a rejection, but at least I know they took a look:)

I wound up on their error page after I clicked Submit. They say to attach the pdf dummy for your graphic novel, but that can be a huuuuuuge file. Will update.
