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

Seeking FRESH YA & MG novels with HEART & SOUL & BELLY LAUGHS & TEARS & DEPTH & LEVITY & VOICE VOICE VOICE VOICE & SETTING & SENSE OF PLACE &

For picture book clients, I'm looking for professional artists and illustrators who can write their own texts. Texts should run 500 words or so. Character-driven stories, stories about identity, animals, emotions. Avoid lists, holidays, rhyme. #MSWL

Jim McCarthy @JimMcCarthy528Hello, friends! Haven’t been here in awhile and probably won’t be popping back in too much for reasons I won’t bore you with. But I wanted to open the year with some #MSWL. I’m always on the lookout!
I’d love to find some wonderful author-illustrators in any space from middle-grade to adult in fiction or nonfiction. Can be for pure graphic novels or more mashed-up, partially illustrated projects! #MSWL
