QEMU Automation / Send Keystroke to Window


I'm trying to write a script to automate QEMU, and as far as I can tell, the only way to access the QEMU Monitor while a VM is running is through the GUI (if there's an easier way to access it, please let me know). So, I'm wanting to know if anyone knows of an app to send keystrokes to a specific window.
