I’m on the hunt for well-crafted YA and MG! Here’s some things I like/am looking for:
- “Out of the box”/quirky narratives
- YA contemporary
- Stories with feminist themes (esp an intersectional framework. Bonus points for teen activism!) (2/6)

Thrilled to announce my return as an Acquisition Editor for @fluxbooks and @JollyFishPress! Working with authors to shepherd their books into the world has been one of the great loves of my life, and I'm over the moon to get to work in this capacity once more.
