More than anything, what I’m really looking for in 2021 is a clear voice. I want to go on a journey with a character so fully developed that they could walk off the page and into real life.
I also really want graphic novels. 😂 #mswl
“I’d love to see more YA or MG illustrated nonfiction or graphic novels about women’s rights, reproductive health, and adjacent topics (pop culture included).” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymondsI’m reopening to queries today! Please see The Bent Agency’s website for full querying guidelines and an overview of what I’m looking for. thebentagency.com/laurel-symonds
I’m on the hunt for: cozy and/or witty YA romcoms, grounded MG and YA fantasy, MG historical fiction from an underrepresented perspective, contemporary MG & YA graphic novels, really quirky nonfiction. In all categories I’m especially seeking projects by and about BIPOC. #MSWL
I’m open to queries once again, folks! Looking for picture books, chapter books and graphic novels from author illustrators as well as middle grade and young adult projects! See my #MSWL for more about specific projects I’d love to see! And once again, Happy New Year! 🎉✌🏼
Lori Steel (open to queries) @BookishsortHello 2021! Can't wait to see the terrific stories I'll find in my query box this year by #amquerying #kidlit writers and illustrators. #amagenting
Particularly seeking PB/GN writer-illustrators, heartfelt, adventurous, and groundbreaking MG/YA across genres. #MSWL
Unrelated to all things (people talking about queen’s gambit which I have not seen yet), I would love a fictional #MG or #YA chess book on my list - prose or graphic novel, I just wanna read your chess words #mswl
Hey, hopeful writers looking to become published authors, I would love to see more #OwnVoices versions of #Fiction, #Nonfiction, #ChildrensBooks and #GraphicNovels! Writing hand Send onward, via tridentmediagroup.com/submissions, thanks! Folded hands #WritingCommunity #MSWL #NaNoWriMo
"I loved THE DREAMERS by Karen Thompson Walker. Send me more spec fiction, even better if it has an environmental angle. Adult, YA, and graphic novels welcome!” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
Graphic & hybrid novels & series are welcome too! Some examples there from my past titles would be DORK DIARIES and THE OKAY WITCH. Quintessential MG stories about finding your way through the labyrinth of family, school, & friendship twists and turns.
I made up a #MSWL! The main problem is that there are honestly more things that I DO want to see books made of than not, but hopefully someone finds this helpful✨
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! 💕
#illustrators, I am here for you! I'd love to see your art, from PB to MG to YA.
I'd also like to see author-illustrated graphic novels. My kids love them. I love them. And I will continue to be an advocate for the fun and creativity and hard work that goes into them. #MSWL
