• Mackenzi Lee's Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue
• Becky Albertalli's Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

Again, I am ONLY open to graphic novel submissions. But I'd love to see comics that read like the following prose books:
• Yamile Saied Méndez's Furia
• Kacen Callender's Felix Ever After
• Kristin Cashore's Graceling Realm series
• Courtney Summers's Sadie
Some books I think exemplify what I'm looking for in comics!
• Jen Wang's The Prince and the Dressmaker
• Noelle Stevenson's Nimona
• Rainbow Rowell & Faith Erin Hicks's Pumpkinheads
• Gene Luen Yang's Dragon Hoops
• Emily Carroll's Through the Woods
I'm primarily focused on MG & YA comics, but I'd love to find some early reader/chapter book-level comics that feel in line with these interests, and I selectively acquire graphic novels for adults, as well, for Disney's new adult imprint, Hyperion Avenue. #MSWL 3/?

Dahlia Adler @MissDahlELamaDear publishers,
Someone please let me put together a Poe anthology. It will be so good. SO GOOD.
My favorite college course was my Poe seminar. YA writers, get the heck on this. #mswl
Kate Brauning @KateBrauningMy next several sets of #subtips are going to be about sexual content in YA! Buckle up, it's gonna be interesting.
This is all ama-a-a-a-azing food for thought, and #mswl to YA that handles these layers of sexuality (or asexuality) realistically!
