Hyper-specific I LOVE: Ensemble Casts; Found family; QPR (queerplatonic relationships); Time travel/multiverse jumping; witch covens as femme solidarity; Non-traditional sports (roller derby, parkour, pro wresting); Tabletop RPGs (and it doesn’t just have to be D&D!)
YA and up: Family dramas that make you LOL or weep, no in between; Cute romances; kids trying to find their people and find themselves on the way; All sorts of spec-fic; all kinds of horror; cyber/solar-punk, with an emphasis on the punk; books that will radicalize kids
Saribel P. @nylotaGuys! I’ll be open to unsolicited queries soon, so it’s my turn to post my #MSWL! Thread below⬇️
Overall: I am looking to represent authors and illustrators for picture books and graphic novels (from MG through Adult). I am also looking to uplift and highlight BIPOC and other marginalized voices.
Maeve MacLysaght, haver of bones @mmmlysaghtNew year, new #MSWL!
I represent BIPOC, Queer, and marginalized creators writing commercial genre fiction across MG, YA, Adult, and Graphic Novel. My particular weaknesses are genre-blending SFF, horror, and anything with murder or making out (ideally both)
2023 #MSWL! As a reminder, I represent BIPOC, queer, & marginalized creators making joy for themselves in SFF & horror for MG, YA, Adult, and Graphic Novel.
My existing MSWL is still a mortifyingly perfect encapsulation of my tastes, but this year I'm looking for even MORE:
In Graphic Novels (young readers, MG, and YA), I'd love to see:
📷 STEM topics for young readers
📷 Tweens saving the world
📷 Queer teens living their best lives
For the basics, I represent: MG horror, mysteries, & thrillers; YA SFF, horror, mysteries, & thrillers; adult SFF, horror, mysteries, & thrillers; select YA/adult GN; and select adult NF. More niche wants below ⬇️
#MSWL - some specifics but it doesn’t mean I’m not open to other things
F/F romances — especially adult romances
Historicals from underrepresented voices
Adult light fantasies
Stories w/ speculative elements
Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur Wiki @MoonGirl_WikiThe adaptation of Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow Illustrated by NYT best-selling artist Bea Jackson, speaks to Lunella Lafayette's insecurities about her hair as School Picture Day approaches.

I'm obsessed with Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur on Disney and would love a middle-grade or younger graphic novel in the vein of this! #MSWL
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeIt's time for another #MSWL as I get to the end of my queries! pic.twitter.com/egrSS18BQY
Reminder, these MSWL could also be applied to a graphic novel. Jus saying #MSWL

I rep PB, MG, YA, GN, and select A genres. I keep my MSWL fairly up-to-date. There are a few areas that I'd love to build my list our more robustly in the coming months. #MSWL
Samia-Juggling-Editing-And-Art Fakih @Samia_SeleneI finally, FINALLY updated my Manuscript Wishlist! Now it has more of the books I've worked on and some more specifications about my interests. I am actively acquiring Graphic Novels, so take a look and if you have something that fits, send me your stuff!
Retweeting for #MSWL day, and reminding everyone that I exclusively edit graphic novels🥰
It's #mswl day and as a forever-shojo-manga-lover, all I can think about is how much I want to work on more YA romance/drama. If you have graphic novel pitches that fall into that genre, send them my way!
I’m technically on vacation but saw it was #MSWL day and wanted to pop in and say that all my recent MSWL posts are still valid.
Also, I would really love more adult projects and GN projects in my inbox. 👀
GRAPHIC NOVELS—I’d love to work on more graphic novels, from MG to YA to Adult. I’m open to taking a look at anything here. Try me! Some of my favorite GNs: PUMPKINHEADS, BATTER ROYALE, THE PRINCESS AND THE DRESSMAKER, PASHMINA, MEASURING UP, ISLA TO ISLAND. #MSWL
I’m going to post a more detailed #MSWL thread soon, but in the meantime—here’s a big picture overview of what I’m looking for this year! ✨
