Been meaning to mention that I have an editor #MSWL page a la @ManuscriptWList.
#Writers: this may also be a helpful starting point to see what a #literaryagent is looking for in #submissions.
I recently reread ALMA AND HOW SHE GOT HER NAME and it’s truly one of my all time favorites. I’d love to see more projects in my inbox exploring the things—names, food, places—that connect us with the generations before us. PB (author-illustrator only), MG/YA novel, GN. #mswl
I’m loving all the nonfiction queries I’m getting! I’d also love to see more illustrators/graphic novelists who are interested in creating/working on NF projects for kids. #mswl
Kiara Valdez @dezinpubHorror may not be my thing anymore, but I will still eat up unsettling lite-creepy stuff and moody/melancholy folklore. 👏🏾 xxxHolic is reminding me of my love for this. (Also why I love Natsume Yuujinchou and Mushishi).
#mswl Someone give me a xxxHolic-esque YA GN. And make it queer, don't tease and then break my heart like CLAMP did. Thanks.
5: Author-illustrator graphic novels (in all age groups) and picture books. I could make a list a mile long of favourites, but think TEA DRAGONS, THIS ONE SUMMER, BE PREPARED, and anything by the Fan Brothers or Jessie Sima.
I would love some brilliant, atmospheric YA horror that is reminiscent of THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE or a slasher like SCREAM.
I've also become a fan of novels-in-verse across middle grade and YA.
And I'd love to add a few more graphic novels to my list across all ages! #mswl
Kait Feldmann @kaitfeldmannAgents! My inbox awaits your submissions. I’m looking for commercial, goofy, magical, FUN books by BIPOC creators. I keep my website up to date so you can always check there for my latest cravings: kaitfeldmann.com/mswl And I’ll continue to add to this thread. #MSWL
I acquire books that require art to tell the story. Board books, picture books, graphic novels, heavily HEAVILY illustrated chapter books. #MSWL
I am really craving some laugh-out-loud children's books. I want to see hilarious picture books, side-splitting chapter books and MG, and funny, cute YA. Also includes graphic novels!
I’m most actively looking for MG and YA graphic novels by BIPOC creators. I’d love to see contemporary projects or stories with a touch of magic. Would also love to see more nonfiction GNs. #mswl
#mswl picture book & graphic novel creators: If you are an illustrator who writes and illustrates with heart and humor, we'd love to consider your picture book dummy and sample art or graphic novel. You can submit at QueryManager.com/Henandink
I'm happy to report that I've re-opened to queries! You can find my latest #MSWL here: cleliagore.com/mswl. You'll see that I'm in a nonfiction state of mind. Handy graphic for ya too. Note that I accept queries on Query Manager only. I look forward to reviewing your work🤓

Welp, got distracted and forgot to sign up to #PitchWars, but I am open to queries and particularly keen to see graphic novels (all genres) and contemporary MG and YA. All genres and ages (up to YA) accepted from historically marginalised creators. #MSWL
