Ashley Herring Blake @ashleyhblakeMG graphic novels are one of my fave comfort reads. I’d love to see a contemporary graphic novel a là ROLLER GIRL, THE NEW KID, BE PREPARED, in my in box! And, you know, make it queer.🤞🏻🏳️🌈 #MSWL
I want an MG graphic novel from an author/illustrator BAD. #MSWL
Andrea Walker @_AndreaWalker_#MSWL Picture books! I would love to represent a pb author or author/illustrator. I love whimsical ideas, lyrical writing, fic-informational, nf, and more. If you're unsure, please query!
Picture Books are my absolute favorite. It would be a dream to add an author/illustrator to my list who's style is bold, dark, or moody similar to Jon Klassen or Ashling Lindsay #MSWL
Something I've been doing this week is look for trans, nonbinary, and genderqueer illustrators. So many of the books I represent are written by and tell the stories of those identities and it would be great to have the covers illustrated by queer artists. Hit me up! #MSWL
now that many editors are working remotely from home, I've been sending out lots of new picture book stories from my author/illustrators... here's to reading! #MSWL and big hugs to #kidlitart peeps xo
For our third and final children's book agency Meet the Team post, we meet @LitAgentClare 🌟Clare is on the lookout for new and exciting talent, so head over to our blog for her manuscript wish list 👀 #MSWL
A quick glance at my #MSWL for 2020:
✨MG + YA Graphic Novels
✨PB author/illustrator w/ a magical hand-rendered aesthetic
✨The next Brian Selznick
✨PBs with humor + heart
✨Hooky, commercial MG + YA
✨Quirky gift books
As much as I love getting YA & MG submissions in my inbox, I'd also love to see more adult nonfiction come my way! I'm always looking for illustrated nonfiction projects, light-hearted narrative projects with a sense of humor & pop culture, pop science & humor submissions. #mswl
My #MSWL is pretty up to date except to say that I’m opening up to graphic novels (author/illustrators)
And I’d very much love a gay “Bring it On” type book where rival cheerleaders hook up (and aren’t the cliche mean cheerleaders) cheering is hard af - show me that ❤️
Karen Greenberg @kgreenbergreadsBeen on the hunt for author-illustrators to bring to Knopf who have fresh stories to tell and diverse styles. New perspectives, art that makes my heart sing, irresistible characters. This is the top of my vision board for 2020. Universe - and agents - let’s make it happen! #mswl

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPixJumping on this @bookendslit #MSWL pile of awesomeness! I'm still desperate for my contemp YA updated Girl: Interrupted (NOT SFF for this). Mental health, mental health, mental health.
Also seeking MG SFF.
I'd love to see some new adult space opera with #ownvoices elements! twitter.com/AgentJessicaA/…
I really have more room for PBs, MGs and perhaps some graphic novels on my list. I'm generally hungry for more illustrated work. Author/illustrators only for the PBs. I like a whimsical, quirky book. Not too over-the-top. Has to have an emotional core. #MSWL
Viv 🌲LBM MK201 @viv_tannerHello #PortfolioDay! I'm passionate about illustrating characters in atmospheric settings 🔸 I'd especially love to work on book covers & interiors, (board)games and children's books.
#mswl looking for illustrators with a similar style for GN and PB.
