I am a BIPOC author of a text-only children’s picture book. Should I find my own illustrator before submitting it?

Hi Tanasha,
Your best bet is to find an agent who represents text-only picture books. Publishers like to pair authors and illustrators themselves. It’s best not to spend the time and money having the art created prior to your book deal. Good luck!
All best,
