And finally...

5. MG with a Big Hook! I like funny books and magical books and sad books and creepy books. In other words, I'm open to any genre, as long as it has a fun, snappy premise that'll get a kid's attention!

4. LatinX representation in kidlit- all ages, all genres, though I am particularly interested in finding a YA contemp & a MG fantasy! A few favorites: @LauraTNamey, @Nina_Writes, @acevedowrites, @djolder, and @CeliaCPerez. (You should be reading *all* of them!)

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

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:

❀️ YA/Adult Rom Comβ€” high concept and swoony

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

If your project doesn’t fall under these two categories but it is still uplifting and joyful, I’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

47% YA
46% Adult

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