📘Bold & magical graphic novels (MG & YA/all genres)
📙Fresh & fascinating narrative nonfiction (MG & YA)
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
Alexandra Weiss @akaweissOkay ya'll, I'm opening up to queries next Monday (Valentine's Day!). I can't wait to dive back into submissions and sign some incredibly talented writers and illustrators this year.
As for what I'm looking for... 🧵
I'm always looking for MG & YA fiction; graphic novels (early reader - YA); nonfiction for all ages (STEM, social justice, little known history); author-illustrated PBs; projects by BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, neurodiverse & disabled creators. #MSWL
I’m loving all the nonfiction queries I’m getting! I’d also love to see more illustrators/graphic novelists who are interested in creating/working on NF projects for kids. #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
I’m most actively looking for MG and YA graphic novels by BIPOC creators. I’d love to see contemporary projects or stories with a touch of magic. Would also love to see more nonfiction GNs. #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
I rep a few fabulous #scicomm writers and want to continue building my list! 👩🔬I’m actively looking for creators who can incorporate real science into fiction or break down nonfiction topics (climate change, space exploration, etc.) and make it interesting for kids. #MSWL #STEM
