I loved THE DREAMERS by Karen Thompson Walker. Send me more grounded spec fiction, even better if it has an environmental angle. Adult and graphic novels welcome!” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
On the totally other end of the spectrum, I want YA and especially MG contemporary graphic novels! I want heartbreaking friendships and first crushes and discovering yourself and coming into your own.
Here's an #MSWL for you (a thread)
I want a super self indulgent vampire romance. Take me back to the early 2000s. Very Queen of the Damned/Underworld movie vibes. Either prose of graphic novel. I want action and mystery and maybe conspiracy too.
National Museums Scotland Library @NMSlibrariesNovember brings us #Museum30 and the theme for today is #light .From the @NtlMuseumsScot rare book collection is this very dramatic engraving of Eddystone Lighthouse from 1811 #librarytwitter pic.twitter.com/46GfzIhLev
I'd love to see a graphic novel with this much drama in its imagery as well as text! #MSWL
Looking for ALL the graphic novel ghost stories! More more boo than blood and more spooky than scary for MG, but I'm all in for YA and Adult. Have a headless horseman retelling? Yes, please.
Bold, big, bonkers books for younger readers – I’d particularly love to see graphic novels and illustrated books for the 7-9 readership but any big funny stories here are also brilliant #MSWL
MG: This is the area I'd most like to expand!
YA: My first love! I'm always looking for YA that stands out.
Select adult SFF & horror.
Always open to author-illustrators & graphic novels. Plus @DanieleDHunter & I LOVE novels-in-verse! We tend toward lyrical writing generally.
Kaitlyn Johnson @RedPenKaitlynOfficially open to queries!!!

Last night I procrastinated so much on Actual Things (cleaning? life? etc) that I made myself a website 👀 taragonzalez.com
Joyce Carol Oates @JoyceCarolOates"they" will not become a part of general usage, not for political reasons but because there would be no pronoun to distinguish between a singular subject ("they") & a plural subject ("they"). language seeks to communicate w/ clarity, not to obfuscate; that is its purpose. twitter.com/JoyceCarolOate…
Hi! I’m looking for more picture books, novels, and graphic novels that feature non-binary characters, people who use they/them pronouns, etc.! Shouldn’t be a problem, since kids easily get the fact that language is mutable ❤️ #MSWL
Peter Knapp @petejknappHere is what we're hoping to find in our inbox, with the keynote being we're looking for standout stories across genres in MG and YA! #mswl pic.twitter.com/5Gr4cIDCOo
GN - all genres but especially horror, dark fantasy, or LGBTQ+
Novels - romance, contemporary, historical, and MAYBE fantasy. Super picky there. Really want horror like Babadook or Midnight Mass or Haunting of Hill House
again, I am dying for more LGBTQ+ and historical; would love contemporary, fantasy, and horror here, too
Think outside the box. For YA, it needs to be something that totally immerses me in the characters or the world or the emotions
Kaitlyn Johnson - Closed to Queries @RedPenKaitlynHey all! I am planning to re-open to queries on OCTOBER 20! In honor of that, here is a #MSWL thread of what I'll be looking for: pic.twitter.com/tXMSZskZ3L
MG Graphic Novels
I want ALL THE MG GN! Looking for slice of life, LGBTQ+ characters and first crushes, kids who can lean on each other and don't run to parents to solve problems.
All genres welcome here #amagenting #mswl
Dara Hyde @dzhydeSo what am I going to be looking for when I re-open to queries tomorrow 10/1 @hillnadell? A #mswl thread 🧵📚 1/
