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

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…
SCBWI British Isles @SCBWI_BI#Q6 Are you looking for something in particular at the moment? What is your manuscript wish list? #mswl #scbwichat #scbwicon19 @Arabella_Stein @AmberCaraveo @guppybooks @alicelovesbooks @Plum_Agency @MeganACarroll @em_dash_
Full #MSWL to be posted this week on the agency's site and Pub Marketplace. But if you have a MG, YA, children's graphic novel proposal, are a PB author/illustrator, or write women's fiction, send me your queries following Greenhouse Literary's sub guidelines!
Happy #MSWL Day, book people! I acquire children’s books! Picture books, middle grade, YA, select graphic novels and nonfiction. Here’s what I’m into, ~a thread~
What my inbox is hungry for: Some adult Crime Fiction, Dark Comedy, and Thrillers. Maybe some unique YA fantasy. Also children’s Mystery and Fantasy. A killer True Crime book would make my life. Are you writing one? #MSWL @VictressLit
Actively searching for brilliant children’s authors writing MG or YA (nothing too high fantasy though...). Please get in touch via email@example.com if you have something I might like! #mswl
Due to growth at the agency, we now have a specific email address for Children's & YA submissions! If you are querying @alibelle or @ChloeSeager please use firstname.lastname@example.org. We're looking forward to reading! #amwriting #mswl
