Nonfiction kid lit writers! We’ve seen a ton of PB biographies acquired over the last year or so—the market is ready and open to fresh takes on PB nonfiction. Think outside the biography box! And after you do—send me your stuff :) #MSWL

My husband was recently subjected to an anti-Semitic joke from someone he liked and respected (no more). It was a very upsetting incident + I'm very motivated to bring more books with Jewish themes, characters into the kid booksphere to combat vile attitudes. #mswl

Send me ur really cool + unique kids nonfiction book queries. I get lots of straight educational subs, but I want out of the box stuff #mswl

Interested in nonfiction picture books, MG or YA about journalism, how news is reported, etc. to combat this "fake news" movement #MSWL

I'm loving all of the new YA narrative nonfiction I'm reading + seeing in deals. Im super interested in repping writers in this genre! #mswl

Would love to see a middle grade or YA graphic novel maybe graphic memoir with environmental themes #MSWL

Also, I would love to rep a PB featuring alternative/cool/"counter-cultural" parents like Chronicle's TELL ME A TATTOO STORY #mswl

You know what would be cool? A super well-researched MG novel featuring a kid hero living on Antarctica #mswl

PNW writers! I'd love to see a picture book about my fave PNW bird, the Stellar's jay. They are magical! #mswl

You know what would be a cool book? MG novel that takes place in the twisty turny quirky Pike's Place Market. #mswl

Career goal: To rep a PB featuring iconic Halloween character(s) (witch, ghost, vamp, etc) that is funny + charming + becomes classic! #mswl

Clelia Gore @MadmoiselleClel · 30 Jun 2016

YA featuring a K-Pop group! Bonus if it's really funny and there's a great romance #mswl

Clelia Gore @MadmoiselleClel · 30 Jun 2016

YA or MG based on historical events or figures, well-researched, a bonus if its an unsung hero or little known event #mswl

Clelia Gore @MadmoiselleClel · 30 Jun 2016

Middle grade fiction that absolutely guts you #mswl
