Maris Kreizman @mariskreizmanCan we please stop saying that diabetes is something that happens to people who are overweight? That's not how it works.
Diabetes is so misunderstood. Coming from a family with many T1 diabetics, I would love to see a diabetic mc in MG and YA where the disease is truly well-handled. Doesn’t have to be the focus/issue! #MSWL
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!
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
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
Chelsea Eberly @chelseberlyI love an author who can tell a story with a tight timeline. DATE ME, BRYSON KELLER had a two-week romantic arc and THIS IS MY AMERICA had the mc's father on death row with less than a year left. Send me your stories where the stakes are high and the clock is ticking! ⌛️💣
Is your mc living a lie? I'm fascinated by stories where the main character has a deep secret, even if it's MG! #MSWL
