#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.

I'm eagerly seeking commercial thrillers, horror, and domestic suspense, as well as upmarket speculative fiction.

In all of these genres, I'm looking for high concept stories with something new to say.

Lastly, high concept love stories and original romcoms are always welcome. I’d love to find new and underrepresented voices in that area that are doing something different. #mswl

“Across the board I love stories that are told in unique formats, whether that be epistolary, e-epistolary, transcripts, a high concept POV, etc. If it’s slightly outside a traditional novel format or voice, send it my way!” @adriamgoetz #MSWL

More high concept high fantasy in the YA space. I get a lot of plots that feel familiar and therefore unpitchable. I want something with a really strong hook. #MSWL

For adult, I would love to see some gorgeous sweeping historical fiction, something to make me laugh out loud, original, high-concept crime/thrillers and cosy crime, and those all-consuming love stories you just have to tell all your friends about💙
