...I am so hungry for immersive, beautifully written, non-European YA fantasy, and for cozy/slice-of-life SFF for MG/YA (prose or graphic novel), that for now I will allow queriers for these genres to bypass my usual requirements. #MSWL

Illustrated graphic novels and graphic nonfiction by individual author/illustrators. MG, YA, Adult. The art needs to cleverly utilize the comics storytelling format. I’m not looking at script-only submissions at the moment. #MSWL

I'm pulling back a bit on graphic novels this year, but still open to GNs for 8-12-year-olds and teens. I can't accept author-only submissions at this time (but will consider agency-driven pairings!), GNs under 160 pages, or black and white middle grade. I'm hoping to see:
