I'll be re-opening to queries on Sept. 3; here are some things I'd love to see in my inbox! #MSWL
-nonfiction, esp. MG, YA & prescriptive and platform-driven adult (not so much PB biographies)
-Native/First Nations creators/authors
Jess Leake @JessLeakeJust saw @AllieLevick mentioned in this article of fantastic PB lit agents, and I can attest to how knowledgable, helpful, and quick to respond she is! writersdigest.com/publishing-ins…
Hey! I’m on a list! How cool.
Please send me your funny AND heartfelt author-illustrated PBs! I’m all about the ~layered~ narrative.
Big thanks to the incredible @JessLeake who totally made my morning with this!
I updated my #MSWL page. I’m looking for MG, YA, kids/teen GN, and author-illustrators. Great writing a must, high concept a plus, and diversity in all ways is welcome. I love your queer, weird, funny, beautiful, nerdy SHENANIGANS. More info: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/jenn…
YA: Historical, fantasy, contemporary friendships
MG: Spooky, magical, mysterious
PB: Author/Illustrators of funny, bright, and spooky fun
I’m caught up on submissions 🎉 If we’ve been talking and you haven’t heard, please chase me.
If you’re writing/illustrating & looking to query, HELLO. I want contemp F/F romance (YA/teen), funny MG series, FRIENDSHIPS across all ages & Eighth Grade as a book.
Authors! I've been closed to queries for 3 months due to ill health in my family. I am re-opening today, but being somewhat specific on what I'm seeking. Please read this thread or my #MSWL manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara… (The tulip is just for fun.) ....
For picture books, I gravitate toward quirky, funny, offbeat, and clever stories that center on a memorable character(s) or weave in deeper themes about friendship, mental health, etc. I'd love to find author-illustrators who can capture that sensibility in both text & art. #MSWL
I’m half-Peruvian and would love to represent more children’s and YA authors and illustrators of Peruvian heritage—and Peruvians who live in Peru are great too! Does anyone know any Peruvian artists in instagram I can check out? #MSWL
Time flies when you're having fun! In my first 6 months of agenting I've built a client list I'm SO proud of. Here's an updated #MSWL (for the next 6 months & beyond!): author-illustrators, slice-of-life chapter book series, girly middle grade (all genres), and contemporary YA.
Seeking FRESH YA & MG novels with HEART & SOUL & BELLY LAUGHS & TEARS & DEPTH & LEVITY & VOICE VOICE VOICE VOICE & SETTING & SENSE OF PLACE &
Portfolios from ILLUSTRATORS.
That’s all. :)
