Graphic Novels

Heather Cashman @HeatherCashman · Sep 24


YA or MG graphic novels that intertwine the text and illustrations (think CHOPSTICKS) or that show a secondary story in the illustrations.

Quick reminder for #MSWL peeps: I only do Kidlit. So YA, MG, PB, or GN in MG or YA.

Did I say I want graphic novels? I really want to see your graphic novel proposals, especially if you are an artist. I ❤️KISS NUMBER 8, MONSTRESS (any way to do this younger? that art-deco style is to die for!), ROLLER GIRL, SANITY & TALLULAH, and anything with cats... #MSWL

Looking for BIPOC and white LGBTQ+ contemporary and fantasy authors with strong hooks in the query and an uplifting vibe. YA and MG alike. Graphic novels too, please! #MSWL

Graphic Novels. Especially middle grade and YA. #MSWL

And #artistsofcolor, I'd love to rep you! Send me your portfolios. I work with artists who want to do #GN and #PB who don't necessarily want to write. #MSWL

Hi, #MSWL Day! Agents, as many of you know, I'm acquiring a range of YA and MG (open to fiction, narrative nonfiction, and graphic novels), and I'm still looking for a lot of the things I've tweeted about on this hashtag in the past!…

#mswl I'm also looking for #graphicnovels, especially #fantasy. No real specifics I'm looking for here, just surprise me!

Hi #MSWL day! I’m actively looking for more middle grade and young adult, as well as graphic novels and picture books. Here are a few things I’m especially eager to find in my inbox (thread):

Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz · Sep 24

MG + YA Graphic Novels. Some recent faves of mine: Pumpkinheads, Pashmina, and Making Friends. I’d also LOVE to work with someone who has a hybrid format similar to Brian Selznick’s works, which is primarily visual but not in a traditional graphic novel sense. #MSWL

Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz · Sep 24

Mermaids! PB, MG, YA, GNs.✨🧜‍♀️ I'm not looking for an epic fantasy, or a story in which someone discovers they’re a mermaid, or a romance in which a mermaid falls in love with a human. I'd love for it to be something a non-genre reader could get into. #MSWL

Katherine Harrison @KidlitKat · Sep 24

Hiya, #MSWL

I'm on the lookout for middle grade nonfiction that specifically explores:

1. Climate change and ecology.
2. American History through the lens of marginalized people.

Bonus points for graphic novels!

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Sep 24

I need more graphic novels. I love rom-coms, fantasy, and genre bending. Recent fave reads: JANE, PERSEPHONE, SLAM, LUMBERJANES. #MSWL

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · Sep 24

When it comes to graphic novels (for all ages—MG, YA, or Adult), most of the submissions I receive are fantasy. I would love to work on more realistic stories. Maybe even some horror! #MSWL

Alex Slater @abuckslater · Sep 24

I’m wishing for creepy #MG, serious literary #YA, and graphic novels especially by marginalized author/illustrators! #MSWL

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Sep 23

I’d love to see more submissions for kidlit graphic novels. I’m open to text-only submissions, but I’m particularly interested in author-illustrators! #mswl

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · Sep 23

Agents, a #MSWL for a nonfiction graphic novel: biography or just general nonfiction covering the indigenous and POC climate and environmental activists risking their lives (and sometimes losing them) around the world as they work against corporate interests.

It’s that time of year, y’all (though it’s always that time of year for me). I really want a PB or chapter book like Hocus Pocus meets Poe meets Stranger Things. Oh if you have a graphic novel that relates (Children’s only, please) I’ll take that, too! #MSWL
