I want random acts of CLIMATE. How can kids (and adults!) do good for the planet on a daily basis? I’d love to see some creative takes that go beyond recycling, reducing plastic use, & aren’t afraid to address govt/corp responsibility. #MSWL

I know it’s not a kidlit book, but THE HOUSE IN THE CERULEAN SEA cured my reading rut and was a hug I desperately needed. I would love to see something like this but for MG/YA with truly wholesome, chaotic, and lovable characters. #MSWL

For YA, I want first job stories, gap year journeys, rom-coms with a big hook, and literally anything that could be comp'd to Sex Education or Never Have I Ever. #MSWL

For MG, I would love to see contemporary stories like FROM THE DESK OF ZOE WASHINGTON, STARFISH, and VIOLETS ARE BLUE. I’d also love to see more light fantasy projects inspired by non-western mythology! #MSWL

I’m actively looking for NF. I specialize in working with scientists and experts in their field and would love to work with more!

THIS is the kind of energy I want in a NF project. Tell me facts, but make it absolutely absurd. #MSWL

I love nonfiction and want to see all the STEAM stories out there, along with projects about little known history/heroes. I would also love a proposal for a MG book about body positivity and self image. #mswl

For picture books, I’d love to see more stories about communities and family or cultural traditions. I’m also down for totally silly, wacky stories that make kids giggle. ☺️

I’d also be interested to see some more author/illustrated projects with bold, colorful styles! #mswl

As someone who identifies on the ace/aro spectrum, I’d love to find a YA project that doesn’t center on physical/romantic attraction. That said, please send me ALL your queer books! #mswl

When I open up to queries next month, I'd love to see more #kidlit stories that tackle climate change and feature real, innovative solutions. Ideally nonfiction but open to fiction as well. Bonus points if it's a graphic novel. #mswl
