"I loved THE DREAMERS by Karen Thompson Walker. Send me more spec fiction, even better if it has an environmental angle. Adult, YA, and graphic novels welcome!” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

@syntactics Art and text or open to text only?

This is a good question! At least for the time being, the acquisitions team does best with art attached to the script. I hope that will change as time goes on! #MSWL twitter.com/Natalie_Lakosi…

• Horror and supernatural fiction that radically represents and explores queer, female, and BIPOC rage
• Books that slide adeptly between humor and poignancy—if a book can make me laugh on one page and cry on the next, it wins my whole heart!

• Zany middle grade humor with a big heart, in the vein of Dog Man—I’d particularly like to explore careers outside of policing that nonetheless lend themselves to multiple adventures over the course of a series

Specifically, I'm looking for . . . #MSWL 6/?

• Original, unforgettable characters with the potential to become universally beloved household names
• Expansive, unique & cinematic worlds—whether fantastical or a part of the real world that’s been underrepresented or that feels fresh through the creator’s eyes

Broadly, I and my colleagues at Disney are looking for big bets with high-concept commercial hooks, expert plotting and pacing, and the potential to become lead titles. #MSWL 4/?

I'm primarily focused on MG & YA comics, but I'd love to find some early reader/chapter book-level comics that feel in line with these interests, and I selectively acquire graphic novels for adults, as well, for Disney's new adult imprint, Hyperion Avenue. #MSWL 3/?

Agents! It's been a loooong time since I've done an #MSWL on here, but what I'm acquiring has changed a lot since my last one, so I think it's about time to put a new one out there! Here we go . . . 1/?

First off, I'm @DisneyBooks's resident graphic novel expert! We're looking to grow that list fast, so for the time being I am ONLY open to graphic novel submissions.

(Sorry, prose & picture book writers—but I'll see you with my IP pitches!) #MSWL 2/?
