If you are querying a MG or YA graphic novel, especially if you are an author-illustrator, I'd love to see it. #PitMad #BVM #MSWL

Saying it again....Iโ€™m looking for a diverse, MG or YA graphic novel by an author or an author/ illustrator! #mswl

Please send me a middle grade that takes me on an adventure. I (we) desperately need one. #mswl

NEW #MSWL: a magical MG mystery a la THE WOLF OF CAPE FEN by @julianalbrandt. The mystery is deeply personal to the character, the worldbuilding is excellent, and the magic serves the mystery plot. It also doesn't hurt that the writing is gorgeous. I want more like this!

Current #MSWL wishlist:

โค๏ธ YA/Adult Rom Comโ€” high concept and swoony

โœจ Magical stories with fun, pacey plots - MG/YA/Adult

If your project doesnโ€™t fall under these two categories but it is still uplifting and joyful, Iโ€™d love to see it!

I'd love to find a dark fairy tale retelling in the vein of UPROOTED that plays with form/timeline/expectations. Looking for MG/YA/Adult! #mswl

I would really like to find a 30-40k MG Fantasy. Something short and sweet and magical. #mswl

I really want to see more Middle Grade and Graphic Novels when I reopen to queries on 2/10/20! #mswl

๐Ÿงผ Lauren Spieller ๐Ÿ– @laurenspieller · 29 Oct 2019

I have 118 queries right now, not including things I've requested during pitch contests. Here's a rough breakdown:

7% MG
47% YA
46% Adult

I love adult and YA, but I would REALLY love to see more Middle Grade! #mswl

I am on the hunt for a MG or YA graphic novel, ideally by an author-illustrator. Spread the word! #mswl
