Full #MSWL to be posted this week on the agency's site and Pub Marketplace. But if you have a MG, YA, children's graphic novel proposal, are a PB author/illustrator, or write women's fiction, send me your queries following Greenhouse Literary's sub guidelines!

A MG with the incredible voice, fully-realized characters, and sense of family love of Schitt's Creek. #MSWL

I love a fractured fairy tale! But please surprise me with something new. And while talking about fairy tales and myths, I'd love a MG fantasy with the cultural specificity and the fresh contemporary voice of Sayantani DasGupta's THE SERPENT'S SECRET. #MSWL

One regret as an editor is that I never had my "kid and their dog" story. It doesn't have to be a dog... but the sensibility of an animal teaching a MG character to better understand Big Truths in a bring-your-tissues kind of read is so satisfying! #MSWL

Send me your great Southern voice in MG and YA! Specificity of setting with clear stakes and hook, please. I loved WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING, great Southern voice and a murder mystery/courtroom drama to boot! How to do this younger? #MSWL

Please send me the humorous MG where the main character's voice is like Mitch Hedberg!!!! 🤣🤣🤣 #MSWL

Looking for BIPOC and white LGBTQ+ contemporary and fantasy authors with strong hooks in the query and an uplifting vibe. YA and MG alike. Graphic novels too, please! #MSWL
