Hi, agent friends :) It's about that time: New Year, New #MSWL 📚✒️
I edit picture books, middle grade novels, and YA novels/nf, as well as select graphic novels across genres.
I prioritize intersectional stories that center BIPOC characters & their unique, varied experiences.
- gentle contemporary romances about queer young people falling in love for the first time
- historical fiction highlighting overlooked events or individuals from marginalized groups
- contemporary novels about POC immigrants/second generation Americans
An end of day #MSWL: I would love middle grade or young adult novel that takes a no-holds-barred look at colorism in marginalized communities and the damage it does to the people in them. #YA #MG #Children
Lauren Spieller @laurenspiellerI would love to see more MG submissions in my inbox. Realistic, historical, magical, scientific, adventurous--whatever you've got, I want to see it! #mswl
