Senior Editor of fiction & nonfiction for small kids, big kids, & teens @quirkbooks . Former child who hasn't forgotten a thing.
MG nonfiction that uses humor and playful formats to bring readers to both evergreen & rapidly evolving topics; in particular, I'd love to learn about civics, media literacy, mental health, body positivity, and food in fresh ways
I'm not your ideal editor for high fantasy worlds, but I do love grounded fantasy, magical realism, retellings, time travel, and speculative twists in both MG & YA
Alex Arnold @alexyarnoldI gravitate most towards magical realism, contemporary realistic, puzzle novels, & quirky/accessible fantasy
Alex Arnold @alexyarnoldLooking for a MG that gives me a crazy amount of feelings. I love MG because as a 12 yr old, you're feeling A LOT for the first time...#MSWL
And I think the best MG fiction makes me look at "basic" human emotions (love, grief, loneliness) anew, through the eyes of a kid. #MSWL
