#MSWL -- I'm still on the hunt for middle grade, and would particularly love a fun middle grade series with action, adventure, and perhaps some magic or a dash (or heaping cupful) of the paranormal!

Continuing to put this out in the universe: my hope is to find a big MG series in the next few months: MG fantasy, adventure, paranormal, scifi, etc...something exciting & brimful of imagination and heart, with characters who are at once brave and vulnerable. #MSWL

This has got to be the start of a thriller already, right?! If not, #mswl !! A Peculiarly Dutch Summer Rite: Children Let Loose in the Night Woods

Two of my favorite books of the year so far (ASK AGAIN, YES and THE LAST ROMANTICS) are both gorgeous and epic family sagas. I'd love to find something in this vein! #mswl

Replying to @QueerGirlEmilie

I’m an agent who would love a manuscript that has a kid who’s trans because they’d be more powerful than god and transitions to assume full power. #mswl in the writing community stands for manuscript wishlist, which editors and agents use to signal books they’re interested in

Her fiance is introduced to us in a FOUR MINUTE LONG ethereally beautiful slow-motion dance sequence where he is wearing immaculate white and doing fan tricks and there's flower petals falling all around

Thank the lord for this thread bc I needed a new show to binge in the heatwave! And beefy badass warrior girl comes home to marry a delicate nobleman known for his beautiful fan dance is EXTREMELY MY JAM (#mswl)

Just saw @AllieLevick mentioned in this article of fantastic PB lit agents, and I can attest to how knowledgable, helpful, and quick to respond she is!…

Hey! I’m on a list! How cool.

Please send me your funny AND heartfelt author-illustrated PBs! I’m all about the ~layered~ narrative.

Big thanks to the incredible @JessLeake who totally made my morning with this!

I’m obsessed with a web comic called Lore Olympus which has only heightened my desire for a historical novel set in Ancient Greece. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 my submissions info is here: #MSWL

I updated my #MSWL page. I’m looking for MG, YA, kids/teen GN, and author-illustrators. Great writing a must, high concept a plus, and diversity in all ways is welcome. I love your queer, weird, funny, beautiful, nerdy SHENANIGANS. More info:…
