Joanna Moult @JoannaMoultI'm loving the #WMPitch tweets. But there are SO many & it's quite overwhelming so I feel I may have missed a gem. If you think I might be a good fit for your work please send it to me. All submission details are here skylark-literary.com. See tweet 👇 below for my wishlist
My #MSWL is for funny, warm-hearted MG or an engaging, absorbing MG adventure, partic told from fresh perspectives. In YA, a super-fresh hook & vivid characters, whether with contemp realistic setting or with fantasy/magical elements. #OwnVoices are v. imp to me #WMPitch
• Queer friendship, love, and adventure stories, especially featuring the less-represented members of the queer family: trans, non-binary, asexual, intersex, queer, and bisexual characters
for RRP MG, i want snarky, funny, action-adventure 📚 featuring young BIPOC & deeply rooted in ✨mythology & magic ✨
here too i'd love to see even more intersectional protagonists & stories that subvert the typical RRP formula, like the upcoming SERWA BOATENG! (4/6)
I'm in the mood for MG! Please send me something spooky, send me something funny, send me something full of adventure, send me something that makes me think. And as always, would love to see subs by marginalized creators across genres. Ready to fall in love with some MG! #MSWL
I’m really craving joyful and funny stories at the moment. Would love to see more in my queries, particularly from marginalised voices. Romance, friendships, adventure, all with a side of LOL. #mswl
Karen Chaplin @CapChapReads#mswl I am looking for middle-grade mystery. Mysteries were one of my fav things to read and watch as a kid. Take me back to The Goonies and Encyclopedia Brown with mystery, adventure, friendship, and an element finding yourself.
Me too!!! #mswl
But I’d really love it with a voice we’ve not seen before.
