Auction #6 – KidLit Cares: 5 page Manuscript Critique and Phone Call from Agent Michelle Wolfson

Welcome to KidLit Cares, an online talent auction to benefit the Red Cross relief effort to help communities recover from Superstorm Sandy. KidLit Cares was started by the very awesome Kate Messner, but I’m taking over Round 2. Agents, editors, authors, illustrators and other generous people have donated various services to be auctioned off to the highest bidder, with donations being made directly to the Red Cross disaster relief fund. You can read more about KidLit Cares here.

Now, on to the auction!

Michelle Wolfson formed Wolfson Literary Agency in 2007 and is actively seeking authors of commercial fiction and non-fiction. She is drawn to well written material with strong interesting characters. For more information, please visit her website at

The winner of this auction will receive 5 page manuscript critique and a follow up 20 minute phone call.

Opening Bid: $30

*Note: Due to Thanksgiving, we have added an extra day to this auction. This auction closes at 10pm Eastern Standard Time on November 23. Any bids placed after that time will be void.

If you’d like to bid on this auction, check the current high bid and place a higher bid by leaving your name and bid amount in the comments, along with some way to contact you (email, FB or Twitter…I’m not fussy.) Winners will be notified when the auction ends and should be prepared to make an online donation to the Red Cross Disaster Relief fund in the amount of the high bid at that time.  After you’ve made your donation, you’ll forward your receipt to me, and I’ll put you in touch with the person who donated the service you won so that the two of you can work out the details about how and when.   All services will be provided at the convenience of both the person making the donation and the auction winner, but this should happen within three months of the auction’s end unless something else is agreed upon by both parties.

Good luck and thanks for your help!

  5. Just horning in here to say Michelle is my agent, and I can tell you that the person who makes the winning bid is in for a real treat! Michelle not only knows her stuff, but she’s a blast to talk to. She gives good phone. 🙂

  14. This auction is now closed. The winner is the highest bidder whose comment and high bid are posted directly above this “end of auction” notice (any bids that are posted after this notice are void). If you’re the winner, please make sure your contact information is correct, so I can get a hold of you to let you know you’ve won. Once I confirm to you in an e-mail that you are the high bidder, please make your donation in the amount of your bid to the Red Cross at the link below. Please don’t make your donation until after I confirm to you that you’ve won, just in case.

    Once you have made your donation, please e-mail a copy of your receipt and the name/number of your auction to me at Once I’ve received that, I will get in touch with the donor so you can connect and work out the finer details of your auction.

    If you were not the winner, please consider still making a donation to the Red Cross—every little bit helps!

    Thank you for your donations, efforts and for spreading the word about this important cause.
