* Middle grade and YA fiction & graphic novels from perspectives that often feel left out of publishing, including LGBTQIA themes. Especially if they are:
* Funny! Heartfelt! Adventures! All of the above! Basically, I LOVE middle grade and YA fiction and graphic novels!
What I'm looking for in 2020:
* Graphic novelists & picture book auth/illustrators with tremendous wit, heart, style and flair - my taste in art tends toward the quirky, textured, European, with a strong line and lots of movement - may BE digital, but doesn't LOOK digital #mswl
I updated my #MSWL page. I’m looking for MG, YA, kids/teen GN, and author-illustrators. Great writing a must, high concept a plus, and diversity in all ways is welcome. I love your queer, weird, funny, beautiful, nerdy SHENANIGANS. More info: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/jenn…

PreePree-8 @runwithskizzersagents/ editors, maybe pick up some books with Hindu kids in it that don't trash the religion or culture. Thanks.
I might be mis-remembering but I THINK I have NEVER seen a Hindu-kid MG or YA contemp (not fantasy) in my inbox. Would read! #MSWL
