Oop! Just want to clarify something because I realize I may have been unclear: I am looking to represent picture books and graphic novels ONLY. I'm happy to look at queries for authors, illustrators, and author-illustrators, but at this time I'm not looking for prose novels.
I’m not a good fit for stories that feature: Suicide or suicidal idealization, Harm to animals, Sexual assault, Police violence, Picture books that just focus on morals or ‘lessons’
I will not be accepting AI-generated submissions.
Hyper-specific I LOVE: Ensemble Casts; Found family; QPR (queerplatonic relationships); Time travel/multiverse jumping; witch covens as femme solidarity; Non-traditional sports (roller derby, parkour, pro wresting); Tabletop RPGs (and it doesn’t just have to be D&D!)
YA and up: Family dramas that make you LOL or weep, no in between; Cute romances; kids trying to find their people and find themselves on the way; All sorts of spec-fic; all kinds of horror; cyber/solar-punk, with an emphasis on the punk; books that will radicalize kids
-Books that instill a sense of wonder and curiosity, both about the world around them and about their peers
-Books that respect kids' Big Feelings
-Soon-to-be iconic characters and their adventures
-Nonfiction where the author’s passion jumps off the page, ala Bill Nye
Saribel P. @nylotaGuys! I’ll be open to unsolicited queries soon, so it’s my turn to post my #MSWL! Thread below⬇️
Overall: I am looking to represent authors and illustrators for picture books and graphic novels (from MG through Adult). I am also looking to uplift and highlight BIPOC and other marginalized voices.
