-Please send me anything that’ll make me laugh. I’d love to see a protagonist as dry and witty as Eleanor Oliphant or Flavia de Luce, or a dysfunctional family saga like Arrested Development.
-The Neverending Story by Michael Ende is my all-time favorite book.
-I love medical documentaries and books, from historical records to case histories to memoirs, anything that shows the human side of science: Oliver Sacks’s books, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, My Lobotomy, My Brain on Fire, When Breath Becomes Air.
Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburnSome things about me to get a sense of who I am? Here’s a weirdly specific #MSWL thread:
-Horror movies & novels of ALL stripes for ALL ages. I particularly love the recent spate of movies using horror to express grief and anxiety, a la Hereditary, The Babadook, and Midsommar.
Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburnBig news, y’all.

In general, I am repping picture books (nonfiction only), high-concept chapter book series, middle grade, YA selectively, & adult fiction & nonfiction. My detailed #MSWL is in the link above and will be updated regularly.
Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburnAs a little girl who went on to take ballet for 18 years, Angelina spoke right to my heart. I pored over the illustrations for HOURS. I'll be interested to see the reissues, & I'm excited a new generation of dancers is about to get inspired.
On that note, I'd love to see a less-pink-frills-&-bows version of a kid falling in love with dance, if anyone's working on a picture book like that. Something with "Julián Is a Mermaid" energy. Really anything with "Julián Is a Mermaid" energy. 💃 #MSWL
Andrea Walker @_AndreaWalker_@erin_clyburn @Megan_Manzano @Literary_Tara What’s at the TOP of your MSWL? Anything you’re dying to see?! 😁
Horror, above all. In MG, YA, and adult. All kinds of horror. I'd also love to see a great adult pop science, like Mary Roach, or bio/history of a lesser known person/event, like RADIUM GIRLS. #MSWL #askagent
MeganElizabethHoyt @meganhoytwritesIt’s official! This is the manuscript that won the SCBWI Work in Progress Award in 2017. I’ve been bursting with the news for months, and now that it’s been announced I can share! Such a beautiful story of courage and sacrifice that will include a special note from Lisa Bartali! pic.twitter.com/QFdzeH5zaH
WOW. This is the kind of picture book I dream of! I’m looking for bios of lesser-known, amazing humans who’ve flown under the radar until now. I want to hear their stories! & congrats, Megan! I can’t wait to read your book! #MSWL
