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
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! twitter.com/search?q=(%23M…
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
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
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!

And I have BIG plans for next year: signing more clients, selling big books, diving deeper into foreign/film/audio, attending more conferences, and finding a way to mentor or offer a paid internship.
Speaking of new clients, my #MSWL has been updated! Yes, I’m looking for graphic novels now! Plus, a continued call for commercial YA, literary MG, and PB author-illustrators. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/laur…
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
