Lastly, as a PB writer... PBs! I have a stupid sense of humor so anything funny like Elise Parsley or Jason Carter Eaton. One of my favorites is RL Stine’s LITTLE SHOP OF MONSTERS. #MSWL

#MSWL a picture book about an endearing mosquito that doesn’t understand why everyone is always swatting it. I’m being dead serious who is writing this for me.

Also in the mood for a really cozy, fallish or wintry woodland picture books. Clearly, I've leaned into the changing seasons even thought it's still 65 degrees outside in Seattle! #mswl

It's fall, I'm in the mood for something spooky/eerie. PB and MG, please! #mswl

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

Coming late to #MSWL Day: Educational PBs that read like trade ones; character-driven MG; truth-telling YA; all of it diverse; #ownvoices preferred.

Dogger by Shirley Hughes, #TheNightGardener by The Fan Brothers, #NotQuiteNarwhal by Jessie Sima—just a handful of picture books that I wish I had acquired. Send me your charming, timeless #PB projects, please! #MSWL

I'm a big fan of @kaysarahsera. 😊 Definitely on the lookout for #PB narratives in verse with a strong voice and an emotional impact. #MSWL

It's #MSWL day! Send me your voice & character driven stories about the immigrant experience, nonfiction projects with a super cool hook, super duper deadpan or dark humor, international mythology, mental health. Books that make the world a lil nicer. #MG #YA #PB

#MSWL:
Contemporary, emotional love stories
Sweeping historical fiction
Smart, elevated thrillers
Novels in verse
Picture books with STEM hooks
Anything else that’s voice driven, literary, and innovative!

My #MSWL isn't live yet, but if your #PB is cozy or curious or magical or mysterious or quirky or wry or tumbling with nature, send it to me!

Or if it is about sheep. I also like sheep.

Forever and always looking for stories that have nerdy, science-driven characters, especially if it is written by a scientist! #PB #MG #YA #scicomm #MSWL
