I’m really looking forward to #KidLitGN! I’ll be looking for MG + YA graphic novels from authors and author/illustrators. I love realism and magic and science and horror—I love it all! I’m also particularly keen to find projects from diverse creators! #mswl

And I am ALWAYS looking for #ownvoices and a diverse set of characters to these stories. Let teens ALL be able to see themselves in the books they read.❤️

The BIGGEST take away here should be to send me gooey love stories set in non-Western places, that have diverse characters, and any pairing—m/m, f/f, f/m. I just really want my heart to swoon when I read.

I judge all my submissions on three criteria - strength of concept (is it marketable? is it individual? is it interesting?), confidence of voice (you get a sense of the fluency of a voice from one page alone) and sustained compelling storytelling (which I need a full ms to judge)

Right now I'm looking for contemporary fiction (both commercial and upmarket), historical fiction and crime fiction. I'm really keen to hear from diverse voices - BIPOC writers, LGBT writers, regional writers, disabled writers, working class writers, writers without a degree.
