john w. rudolph @johnwrudolphHappy New Year! For 2019, I thought I'd throw out some #MSWL ideas for writers. Broadly, I'm looking for all kinds of picture books by author/illustrators, MG, YA, Childrens' NF, Adult Narrative NF, and adult Lit Fiction. Details thread follows:
Another #MSWL for 2019! (Be sure you're following all our agents so you can keep up to date on their clients and interests.)
YA: Much the same as MG--humor, realistic teen stories, #ownvoices, adventure, sci-fi. Also, love a good teen romance, horror, mystery, but not super-dark.
Children's NF at all levels: curriculum tie-ins, PB bios, multicultural history, science, sports, pop culture.
Middle Grade: Humor--if you can truly make me laugh, I'll sign you up. Literary: I've never had a Newbery-winning client and I want one. Adventure stories that aren't fantasy, grounded fantasy, sci-fi. #ownvoices for sure. Artists, MG graphic novels! #MSWL
For picture book clients, I'm looking for professional artists and illustrators who can write their own texts. Texts should run 500 words or so. Character-driven stories, stories about identity, animals, emotions. Avoid lists, holidays, rhyme. #MSWL

Right, (like a lot of other people) I've finished reading The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle (🤯) and I'm adding high-concept novels to my submissions wishlist!

Kayley @kayleyc16I really want to see more soft boys in fiction.
Not the “nice guy” type.
Give me boys who cry, boys who are soft-spoken, boys who are gentle, affectionate, and emotionally intelligent. Who embrace these traits without feeling “unmanly”.
So moved by #IDanielBlake on BBC2 last night. I'd love to hear Daisy's voice in children's fiction. What's life like for a 12 yr old when your mum can't make the rent? When you have to move 100s of miles to be housed? When your Mum has an apple while you're having your tea #MSWL
