Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymondsA couple reminders: If more than one agent at The Bent Agency ❤️ your pitch, please send to both and let us know. We’ll figure it out on our end.
And, as always, I’m not going to be able to see every pitch today but I am ✨very actively✨ seeking GN clients. If you think we’d be a good fit, please query me! My query inbox is always open to submissions. More info at: thebentagency.com. #MSWL
Pearl Low | 盧寶珠 @Fumi_chunI would love to see more stories rooted in Solar Punk, envisioning the future incorporating dope environmental/societal progression, vs. The white colonial, often racist & industrial aesthetics of Steam Punk.
I've never felt a connection to Steam Punk nor welcomed to the genre. pic.twitter.com/NkWIs57BLB
Ahhh #MSWL so SO hard. Anyone have this graphic novel ready for me?

KidLit GN @KidLitGNWednesday 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
Also, more graphic novel authors and illustrators! I'm open to all categories, but especially love MG and YA. Mostly looking for inclusive, diverse stories from underrepresented communities. #MSWL #GraphicNovel #illustrator
Shout out my lovely clients @jocabako and @Schnumn!
#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

Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymondsI’m celebrating my two-year agenting anniversary this week! I’m so proud of my clients, thankful for my TBA colleagues, and excited for all the things to come. pic.twitter.com/cjj3FMeJ1t
I’m also still actively building my client list. Please see The Bent Agency’s website/MSWL for some updates on what I’m looking for. Right now I’m all about contemporary: YA, MG, and GN, especially from underrepresented communities. #MSWL
Really feeling in the mood for some fantastic MG.
- Weird and wonderful worlds
- Joyous contemporary stories
- Epic adventures
- Strong friendships
Looking across novels, highly illustrated (particularly author-illustrator created) and graphic novels.
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
