For graphic novels both MG and YA, give me your messy, flawed, embarrassing, relatable coming-of-age. Think Roller Girl, Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up with Me, Invisible Emmie, El Deafo, Stargazing, Check Please.

It’s that time of year when fall submissions start flying, so here’s a little #MSWL thread! Big picture, I’m acquiring MG and YA novels and graphic novels in all genres and am always looking for more underrepresented voices in all categories.

YOUNG ADULT (PT. 2)
Aside from graphic novels, I am still in pursuit of a magical-yet-quiet mermaid novel, so my inbox is a safe cove to any mermaids that would like to swim in. ✨🧜🏼‍♀️

MIDDLE GRADE
I really love finding a good magical MG novel, but I’m open to a wide range here. Voicey contemporaries, mystery, magical realism/contemporary fantasy, graphic novels, historical fiction, verse, epistolary. When in doubt, send it my way! #MSWL

Graphic “Novel” #MSWL

🍂 realistic teen stories
🍂 graphic memoir
🍂 graphic nonfiction
🍂 psychological horror

Note: I’m currently only looking for projects created by author/illustrators (one creator both writing and illustrating the book).

With #pitmad coming up, here’s a quick snapshot of my #mswl — I’m looking for adult commercial fiction, specifically fantasy, sci-fi, rom-coms, historical romance, paranormal romance and thrillers from BIPOC & LGBTQIA2S+ writers. Also open to graphic novels in the same genres! 📚

I am really intrigued by the series EXPLAINED on Netflix. Watching the Tattoo episode now and I think this series would make a inspire MG GN NF book series. #MSWL

I would love to see a #youngadult #graphicnovel with battling street artists, similar to the movie 8 Mile but with spray cans instead of lyrics! #mswl #YA #GN #Kidlit #amquerying #streetart

this is an extremely niche #mggn #mswl but i'd actually love a middle grade graphic novel set in philly, centering on a kid in the midst of the spotted lantern fly swell, killing bugs and feeling big feelings about how the whole thing is a metaphor for ~life~
