I’m half-Peruvian and would love to represent more children’s and YA authors and illustrators of Peruvian heritage—and Peruvians who live in Peru are great too! Does anyone know any Peruvian artists in instagram I can check out? #MSWL
I'm looking for #OwnVoices children's nonfiction writers. If submitting, please send to submissions at stonesong.com and put "query" and "children's nonfiction" somewhere in the subject line. Thanks! #MSWL
If you wrote the children's book you wish had existed when you were a kid, about your culture, about your language, about your country, please reach out to me. I'm not formally open to queries right now, but I'm on a mission. #MSWL #ownvoices #weneeddiversebooks #kidslit
It's true! I'm open to queries so hit me with your best shot: querymanager.com/query/mferrara
Not only that—but I'm now open to picture books! My list is definitely children's focused in PB, MG, and YA -- but I'm selectively looking at Adult SFF and romance! #MSWL
1/4 #MSWL Board books: early learning concepts (dates & time, body, senses, cooking/food, money); series proposals; economic and gripping language; LGBTQ+; diverse families and ownvoices; author-illustrators.
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeUniverse, I am hungry for books, so send me ALL THE BOOKS!*
*I may come to regret this when I get swamped in queries.
YA: Much the same as MG--humor, realistic teen stories, #ownvoices, adventure, sci-fi. Also, love a good teen romance, horror, mystery, but not super-dark.
Children's NF at all levels: curriculum tie-ins, PB bios, multicultural history, science, sports, pop culture.
So moved by #IDanielBlake on BBC2 last night. I'd love to hear Daisy's voice in children's fiction. What's life like for a 12 yr old when your mum can't make the rent? When you have to move 100s of miles to be housed? When your Mum has an apple while you're having your tea #MSWL
Opening up our @DA_Childrens submissions for 2019! If you're working on an #ownvoices #MG adventure with an unusual mythology, a diverse #YA that's as funny as Louise Rennison, some ground-breaking children's #nonfiction #PB or ANYTHING ELSE #kidlit send it my way #MSWL
This year, I'd love to see more trade non-fiction for children and teens that goes beyond a traditional biography! Show me science, history, cultural movements, our planet, etc. in ways I haven't seen before! (bonus points if it's a graphic novel!) #NonFiction #pb #mg #ya #mswl
I've reopened to queries and represent fiction, non-fiction and illustration for children and teens! (Sorry, I don't represent works for adults, but a lot of my lovely @bookendslit colleagues do!)
You can query me at queryme.online/tmarchini #mswl #amquerying
Rashmi Sirdeshpande @RashmiWriting1/3 What do we need more of in children’s literature? - Books that better reflect society, books with varied family structures, books with quiet heroes, books that challenge gender stereotypes and toxic masculinity, and more creative, UK-grown children’s nonfiction! #GEAvember
Couldn't agree more with @RashmiWriting's thread. In these scary times these are the stories I'm looking for and what I hope children's publishing will become. We need to tell stories for every child... #MSWL
#MSWL When I open up my queries again, I want the fluffiest most uwu romance / contemporary (adult or children's) fiction with PoC and/or queer protagonists (Not secondary characters fitting the bill and no one is allowed to die!)
