Hi all! Here is my current #mswl! In short, I'm focused on developing four areas of my clientele in 2019: (1) PB author-illustrators; (2) MG fiction; (3) Graphic novels; and (4) Nonfiction across all kid lit genres. Hit me up, queryers! cleliagore.com/2019/01/11/201…
john w. rudolph @johnwrudolphHappy New Year! For 2019, I thought I'd throw out some #MSWL ideas for writers. Broadly, I'm looking for all kinds of picture books by author/illustrators, MG, YA, Childrens' NF, Adult Narrative NF, and adult Lit Fiction. Details thread follows:
Another #MSWL for 2019! (Be sure you're following all our agents so you can keep up to date on their clients and interests.)
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
I'm also looking to add more illustrators to my list in 2019! (Both illo only and author-illustrator). To get a sense of the work I love, see my brilliant clients - @charlenedraws @Kristin15104318 @Chi_Gaia @AngelaTraunig #sallydeng #yvonneivinson #MSWL #kidlitart

Since it's #NationalCatDay, this is the perfect day to tweet that I NEED a PB about a cat. (Preferably from an author/illustrator.)
P.S. My cat Maple is sitting on my lap as I type this and she approves this #MSWL item.
Stefanie is reopen to submissions until 12/15, and especially interested in #mglit and #illustrator queries. To all @Scbwi Insight Newsletter queries, please include #SCBWI mention. Already requested 2 full mss via Insight! 📚 See #MSWL on website: fullcircleliterary.com/our-agents/ste…
#MSWL I would REALLY love a quirky chapter book series with geeky kids, weird monsters, or strange animals (real or mythical). I would prefer this in CB, but I’m open to author/illustrator graphic novels, and MG too. Similar to THE BAD GUYS, or CATSTRONAUTS.
