The Novelry @thenovelryAt the Sunday Blog today, literary agent from PFD @sfmolteni tells us what she wants, what she really, really, wants...
Here's my current #MSWL:
In MG fiction: horror, contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi, action/adventure, mystery, and humor.
In children’s fiction: picture books (non-rhyming preferred).
Always looking for own voices, diversity, and LGBTQ+!!!

Brit Brooks-Perilli ✨ is closed to queries ✨ @Britny_PerilliNow that we've rolled into 2021, I think it's time to focus on what I want to bring more of to @RP_Kids and publishing in general this year. I'm so grateful to have worked on some amazing books in 2020 & I'm excited to meet even more agents & authors this year. ✨📚
A #MSWL 🧵
📚 First and foremost, I'm looking for more YA and children's non-fiction by BIPOC, LGBTQ, & other marginalized creators and stories that are bursting with joy and passion -- especially when it comes to fandom/pop culture/geek stories and communities! #MSWL
Making it official! 🎺 I am now formally open to children's submissions - picture book texts, fiction through from early readers to YA, illustrators & graphic novelists. I'll update with an #MSWL later but for now will just say I'm looking forward to reading all your work! 💕
Hi all! I've been on the @pagestreetkids team for a while, most recently on the marketing/PR side, but I'm excited to announce I'm now a children's editor full time! Check out my brand new #MSWL here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/kayl…

Alright I am putting it out into the universe.
I have a dream of representing a children’s book about competition and sportsmanship...
by Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
#mswl ... in case you can help me make this happen.
Tori Sharp is open to queries! @NovelToriWhen I was querying my own work just two years ago, I could find only about 35 agents seeking MG fantasy graphic novels. I'm sure there were more, but it took a lot of digging even to find those 35. That seems wild now.
Speaking of which, I would LOVE to see more children's graphic novel pitches in my query inbox, especially from author/illustrators. Find my submission guidelines here: jdlit.com/tori-sharp #mswl #makingcomics
[kie.ran] @danblackroydFriend breakups (I mean good, longterm, very close and intimate friendships) are, in my experience, much more emotionally devastating than romantic breakups. And yet, unlike romantic relationships, we have almost no socialization (even in media images) on how to navigate them.
Yes, yes, yes. Someone give this to me now in the form of a book for children #MSWL
I'd really like to acquire a children's book that explores a theological concept or aspect of who God is from a BIPOC author with a progressive Christian perspective. Throwing this out into the wind to see what comes back. Thread of books w/ similar themes below. #MSWL
alli hellegers @allidhellegersIf you’re a Black children’s book writer and have queried me for a middle grade or YA novel, please resend through the website and use the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter before your query, and it will be read and responded to next week. Open to new queries as well.
#MSWL please keep these great submissions coming from Black children’s book writers! I’m also interested in author-illustrators with existing picture book dummies. #BlackVoices find me through the Stimola website through the submission form. 🖤

My fever-addled self also rewatched HEREDITARY today & it reminded me of a #MSWL I’ve mentioned before: horror that deals with grief (in both children’s & adult lit). Horror that’s intertwined with grief. Like HEREDITARY, THE BABADOOK, A MONSTER CALLS. Please & thank you. 🖤
Oh my. 💕💕💕 #mswl
Someone has to make this a children's book so they, the act, and the man who touched them so, can't be forgotten and can continue to influence our children. The initial trip was awesome... now a return, though? Wow. Just wow.
...such beautiful creations.
Not sure exactly what form this would take but here’s a #mswl item a colleague and I were talking about: writing that tangles with how children of immigrants/people who immigrate as children can end up feeling caught between countries and cultures, not feeling at home anywhere
Katherine Locke @BibliogatoA Jamaican dog sled team?! WHERE IS THIS CHILDREN'S BOOK, FRIENDS? WHERE IS THE JAMAICAN KIDLIT WRITER WHO CAN WRITE THIS WITH NEWTON?! twitter.com/95hannahlouise…
