Wednesday is coming up quickly! Agents and editors, please feel free to post your GN wish list and your submission guidelines. Or your plans to be involved. Let's spread the word! Thanks! #KidLitGN pic.twitter.com/IFvYnMNUq8

So excited for this tomorrow! When it comes to graphic novels, I’m open to a wide range, but here are a few #MSWL items: contemporary with a strong voice/distinctive perspective, historical fiction, accessible fantasy, mystery/anything spooky, romance. ♥️ #KidLitGN

I’m really looking forward to #KidLitGN! I’ll be looking for MG + YA graphic novels from authors and author/illustrators. I love realism and magic and science and horror—I love it all! I’m also particularly keen to find projects from diverse creators! #mswl

#VampiresVsTheBronx is exactly the creative gentrification story I've been wanting T_T A middle grade GN #mswl of mine for the last 2/3 years has been a contemporary story following a POC character dealing with gentrification in the NYC neighborhood they grew up in.

Having sold the MG graphic novel SORT OF SUPER by #Teamtriada's @ericgapstur with Brent in a six-figure pre-empt has definitely whet my whistle. I would love to see more author/illustrator MG and YA #graphicnovels in my Inbox. #MSWL

Current mood: MAJOR Halloween vibes.👻🎃🪦 I want all things spooky, eerie, haunted. My favorite type of read at the moment is Emily Carroll's fairytale-esque horror graphic novels and Mexican Gothic. I devoured Netflix's Haunting of Hill House and can't wait for the next. #mswl
