Heartfelt &/or humorous middle grade that is rich & textured in its characterizations, stylistic choices, language, & telling. Give me subplots & side characters & settings that all work to make a story feel sophisticated & fully-realized & ALIVE. #MSWL #MG

This is 4 kinds of delightful! Also, it’s the kind of wit & prank-ish humor I wish I saw more in manuscripts.… #MSWL

My YA inbox is so dark & angsty! Would love to see YA HUMOR. Specifically: voice-driven, smart, witty humor, not snarky or belittling. #MSWL
