Just 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…

I'd love to see more illustrators who don't necessarily write in my inbox #mswl

I’d love to work with a PB author/illustrator who uses paint/texture the way Alena Shymchonak does in her art! #MSWL

If it was somehow possible for an author/illustrator to do a spooky-yet-entirely-kid-friendly picture book about russalka, I would die of happiness. #creepymermaids #MSWL

#MSWL We are passionately seeking #queerlit, particularly #kidlit (skilled author/illustrators are a plus), #middlegrade, #ya!

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.) ....

Hali Baumstein @halibaumstein · Apr 12

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

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · Apr 3

#OwnVoices writers and illustrators, especially POC creators, please send me your work! I’m very eager to see and would especially love to see stories, and writers, based in Africa. #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.

Ariana Philips @ArianaPhilips · Mar 11

Authors/Illustrators/Everyone! I am now open to queries & looking to build my list. Visit the @JVNLA website for my #mswl and submission guidelines. #amagenting
