My #MSWL: #PB #C #MG #NF #BVM #OWN
Particularly looking for MG right now. Recent favorites: FROM THE DESK OF ZOE WASHINGTON (so many happy/sad tears) and SO DONE (love alternating POV). All-time favorites: FRONT DESK, THE LINE TENDER, THE WAR THAT SAVED MY LIFE and THE STARS BENEATH OUR FEET. #mswl
“With non-fiction I want to learn something by accident, tell me a good story in a fun new way that keeps me thinking. I really enjoyed Carlo Rovelli’s SIX BRIEF LESSONS ON PHYSICS.” @maureen_moretti #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
alli hellegers @allidhellegersIf you’re a Black children’s book writer and have queried me for a middle grade or YA novel, please resend through the website and use the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter before your query, and it will be read and responded to next week. Open to new queries as well.
#MSWL please keep these great submissions coming from Black children’s book writers! I’m also interested in author-illustrators with existing picture book dummies. #BlackVoices find me through the Stimola website through the submission form. 🖤
Looking for both YA and adult contemporary stories of #ownvoices and #POC. Raw, honest voices. Real emotions, with a commercial hook. Please query me. I am always, always on the hunt for great storytellers. #MSWL
“YA non-fiction: Memoir, essay collections, you name it. Queer There & Everywhere is probably my favorite YA non-fic title in recent memory, and a great example of what I’d like to see.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Lina Langlee @LinaLangleeSeeing a lot of 'timely' manuscripts (read 'dystopian') in our submissions inbox when all I want is ESCAPISM.
I want your fluffy romances, the book equivalent of a Bollywood film, feel-good cosy stuff with a great hook that make you WANT to stay in.
Since I am still getting some traction for this #mswl I should mention that I have recently moved agencies to The North Literary Agency. More about what I am looking for here: thenorthlitagency.com/our-friends-in…
I've reopened again to queries! Send me your stories. Check out #MSWL for what I most want to see right now. Sky's the limit! And if you need a feel for what my books look like, check out my pinterest boards for books I rep: pinterest.com/nataschamorris…
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeLet's do a thread of picture books that I recently read and loved and symbolize my brand for picture book.
So rather than do a PB #MSWL ahead of reopening today, let's just retweet a thread of great picture books.
Publishing is an industry that has always had the power to amplify Black voices and we need to do better. I want to do better. Agents, please keep me in mind when you sign up some these stellar and important voices because I want to hear them.
Talia Benamy @taliabenamyPublishing is notoriously white, and it's on those of us with our feet in the door to open that door wider for everyone else. So for the month of June, I'm opening myself up to queries from Black children's book writers and artists. Please, DM them my way. #BlackLivesMatter
Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRothMy consultation spots for Black #kidlit authors are now full. But I will add more every month (no end date planned) and post the links when available. Meanwhile, I'm always happy to chat on Twitter for general questions. elana.me/consultations
And not to conflate things, I have never stopped looking for Black voices to add to my list of authors. If you write fun, escapist stories for MG or YA, I'm here! Currently hungry for rom-coms and light fantasy, but open to an adventure. elana.me/wish-list #mswl
