Humor

Connor Goldsmith @dreamoforgonon · 12 Sep 2018

I could spend ages thinking about #MSWL day so I will just be succinct: in fiction still looking mainly for smart SF/F with a fresh hook, especially by/about ppl from marginalized POVs. In nonfic: ppl w/established platforms in pop culture/media, humor, social politics, history.

Still looking for an Atlantis retelling! Would love it to have the humor and visual awesomeness of the movie (a steampunk alchemy Atlantis would be SO COOL) #MSWL

I've got this weird #MSWL for a humorous adult contemporary set in a therapy group for alien abduction frauds. No idea if it can be pulled off, but it's never left my head 😂

#MSWL
In YA and MG:
✔️ That quirky kid who cares so much about science and their "work" that pressures from social standings/social media never touch them. Humor's a must!

I want a #PB that makes me laugh out loud! A story with sharp, clever text and room for the art to add humor. I love an unexpected ending! #MSWL

#MSWL: Nonfiction books by the LGBTQ+ community, especially humor, history, culture, modern life. (Books that go beyond memoir!)

#MSWL: Nonfiction books that combine sexuality and humor, explore various sexual/relationship lifestyles (polyamory? coparenting?), and promote sex positivity and sexual health

Funny books, for readers of all ages. I’m not super into corny jokes/poop humor, but everything else? Bring it. #mswl

In the wake of my first nonfiction deal announcement: I am looking to do a lot more nonfiction! Areas of interest: pop culture, media, humor, gender&sexuality, race&ethnicity, disability, sex work, biography, narrative history. #MSWL

For PBs: author/illustrators only. (I know that stings a little. Sorry?) I like modern art styles, whimsical-with-heart stories, light humor, honest kid emotions, and simple prose. +100 for women and POC author/illustrators. #mswl

Alex Slater @abuckslater · 28 Aug 2018

Looking for more #mg or #ya graphic novels that blend genres with dark humor and fiery voice. #MSWL

I’m very much on the lookout for fun, well-done escapism: manuscripts that are fun to read, that have a sense of humor, that make me laugh. If you’ve got one on offer please query me ✨ #MSWL

We’ve all seen highly illustrated early readers and chapter books about unlikely friends. Where are the unlikely enemies, in the vein of Tom & Jerry cartoons, with some I WANT MY HAT BACK-level dark humor? #MSWL
