For Young Adult, my biggest #MSWL is fun, lighthearted novels by POC and LGBTQ+ writers. I see so many submissions for issues-based stories—which we need, don't get me wrong—but I want to put a little more joy into the lives of teen readers who already deal with so much shit.
Even though I'm closing to queries in a few days (Oct 1), I'm still going to share a few specific #MSWL items because a) it's too fun not to and b) maybe someone out there is currently working on the perfect book to send me in the new year! 🤞
✨ I’m closing to queries on Oct 1 for the remainder of the year and will re-open in early 2020 (exact date TBD).
So if you have something ready to send my way, please send it this month! My manuscript wish list (#MSWL) is linked below. ✨
Putting it out into the twitter universe that I am looking for more clients creating beautifully illustrated books! Graphic novels, graphic memoirs, graphic nonfiction—anything and everything you're working on, for any age group. #MSWL
Random topics & things I’m into (idk it might help???): animal rights / boy bands / comics / crows / design / the environment / friendship / ghosts / LGBTQ+ characters / mental health / pop music / teen dramas / Zelda / the 90s. #MSWL
