D.B. Gee—Querying Speculative Fantasy! @DBGeeWrites@featherfully Hi Feather! I took a peek at the website for the publishers in your bio but didn't see YA as an age range. You liked one of my pitches (thank you ), so I'm hoping to confirm you are interested in acquiring YA stories. Thank you!
Hey D.B.! Oh gosh, that's strange. But YES—Atheneum publishes picture books, MG, YA, and graphic novels within the S&S Children's group. My specific #MSWL lives here, if you want to check it out: featherflores.com/mswl/. Any questions, give me a shout! (& ahh your pitch is 🔥🔥)
Hi book nerds 💜 Huzzah! My #MSWL is now officially live! Agented authors and creators, feel free to share this with your agent. Unfortunately for those in the query trenches, I'm unable to accept unagented submissions...I leave you with a catdog 🐱🐶
for artwork, i like a wide range—i love the grittiness of SAGA’s artwork, but also the muted tones and simplicity of KISS NUMBER 8. COVENANT and LORE OLYMPUS are two of my favorite webcomics with wildly different art styles
Cortney Radocaj 🏳️🌈💖💜💙 @CortneyRadocajfor graphic novels, i’m looking for contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi, and horror in a wide variety; both ends of the spectrum are wanted! sweet contemporaries, cozy fantasy—but also dark, twisty SFF and horror that delves into navigating trauma
basically, i either want to be smiling with warm fuzzies, or clutching my chest and crying (or like…both lol). just give me feels!
for graphic novels, i’m looking for contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi, and horror in a wide variety; both ends of the spectrum are wanted! sweet contemporaries, cozy fantasy—but also dark, twisty SFF and horror that delves into navigating trauma
overall, i will be accepting:
UPDATE: i’m opening to queries!
i’ll be open starting october 1st through november 30th
there will be a few changes in what i’m looking for, but the biggest is that i will be accepting graphic novels!! 🎉

#MSWL: #ChildrensBooks send me yr #GraphicNovel projects, from high-concept to literary, or middle grade with visual elements. Something with heart & humor. See Remy Lai's Pie in the Sky as a good comp. Also enjoyed Witches of Brooklyn & Pilau of the Woods as GN comps.
For younger readers, I want clever, funny and an immediate hook. I’m particularly interested in author/illustrators and graphic novel creators for this area, but I’d love to see them in other spaces too!
Everything listed on our website still applies, but I really want to see contemporary GNs in MG & YA, contemporary novels in MG & YA, & YA & adult thrillers. #MSWL Send to Query Manager before Sept. 1, or query me when I open again. #WritingCommunity #Amquerying @seymouragency
I’d LOVE to see MG and YA contemporary graphic novel scripts (magical realism is good too). Author only, author/illustrator, or team—I’ll look at all. #MSWL #WritingCommunity #diversity #inclusive Query me via Query Manager.
In YA & MG (incl GNs):
* Diverse contemporary stories that are authentic instead of trendy
* Novels that are by & about people whose tales are yet untold
* Soulful, insightful, & well-crafted projects
* Stories that leave me cackling 😆 or sobbing 😭 long after I've read THE END
