It’s PW-official: I’m thrilled to share that I’ve joined the incredible team at Atheneum / @SimonKIDS! 🤗🎉
Agent friends! If it’s been awhile since we connected, please reach out! I’d love to chat. 💕

Watch this space for excited first day post and updated #MSWL coming next month! Agent friends, I’ll be excited to connect (or re-connect) in early June. I can’t wait to make more incredible books together! 🥰
Julia McCarthy @thejumblesJust a reminder that I (and many other editors!) are eager to acquire and amplify trans voices. Agents, I’m always looking for picture books, graphic novels, and MG/YA novels that uplift the trans community 🏳️⚧️ No more room in this world or on our pub lists for bigotry & hate!
Yes, eternally & forever #MSWL
Eva Zimmerman @EvaZimmerman@karianneholt Literally just sent a note to all of children's publishing begging them to make these girls into a book. Watching them was my favorite part of the Olympics so far. Can you write the book?!?!???!?!!
#mswl 😉 If you’ve got this, send it my way! I want it!
Kelly Carrell is looking for work! @specifikellysomeone hire me to work on your slice-of-life-with-fantastical-elements-story-that-deals-with-people-talking-about-their-feelings-and-is-also-gay-and-maybe-a-little-spooky project please
Feather Flores 🌸 @featherfullyI can't wait to be able to share all the incredible books I've got coming your way in the not-too-distant future! The talented authors and artists I've been lucky enough to work with are truly the best part of my job. 💕
Feather Flores 🌸 @featherfullyPLEASE read this thread. Every publishing professional I know *needs* to read this thread. 👇🏼 twitter.com/laviecestmoi/s…
Also, if you are a BIPOC creator and you see yourself & your stories in this thread (heck, I know I do): I WANT THEM. I will always want them. And I will fight for them. #MSWL
Diana ➡️ Occasionally Awarewolf @SuperdillinThe amount of people who are commenting that they'd watch a show about us being a wholesome family of jocks and their adopted nerd lass has brought me back from the dead I swear
There’s got to be a book in this somewhere, and I want it (thread) #MSWL
Pearl Low | 盧寶珠 @Fumi_chunI would love to see more stories rooted in Solar Punk, envisioning the future incorporating dope environmental/societal progression, vs. The white colonial, often racist & industrial aesthetics of Steam Punk.
I've never felt a connection to Steam Punk nor welcomed to the genre. pic.twitter.com/NkWIs57BLB
Ahhh #MSWL so SO hard. Anyone have this graphic novel ready for me?
Emery Lee Semi-Hiatus @EmeryLeeWhoIt's been brought to my attention in a sort of roundabout way that people aren't interested in queer books, esp QPoC books, that don't center trauma.
Can y'all do me a favor & RT this if you'd love to read some books about queer people with little to no trauma in them?
Read AND acquire please #MSWL
