as always, BIPOC queries only! but other than that, I'd pretty much love to see anything gaming-adjacent or in the categories of steampunk, solarpunk, cyberpunk, any -punk kind of aesthetic really! i feel like those subgenres can really be pushed in illustrative works.

okay, you got me, I lied and it's afternoon, but let's finally talk about illustrators and graphic novelists and what's on my #MSWL in those categories :3

for illustrators: simply Be BIPOC and I'm interested in seeing your work. there's an upload section at the bottom of my query form just for you! upload art samples, link me to your portfolios, all that good stuff!

I’ve opened to picture books. I’ve missed my PB community. (Go easy on me.)

I’ll be prioritizing authors and/or illustrators from marginalized communities, books with side-splitting humor, and fascinating nonfiction (that’s not a bio).

And as an outspoken advocate for greater diversity, equity, and inclusion in media, I am particularly keen to invest in the work of writers and illustrators who have historically been marginalized in American media. #MSWL

I would also love to work with more #kidlitart #illustrators this year. I like bright, bold color palettes, expressive characters, creators who can tell a whole story in one image. My tastes range. See? jmcgowanbooks.com/clients

Hello! Happy 2022! I will be back at my desk tomorrow morning and am excited to dive into what’s already shaping up to be an exciting year, over 300 (!) assistant applications, AND I’ll be opening to queries. Ahead of that, let’s do a #mswl thread.

I’m looking across picture books (author-illustrator only) to YA including graphic novels. I love romcoms, friendcoms, adventures and intriguing magic. I am not a fit for most horror, sci-fi, anything to do with emergencies on planes or the pandemic, or animal POVs. #mswl

Bold, big, bonkers books for younger readers – I’d particularly love to see graphic novels and illustrated books for the 7-9 readership but any big funny stories here are also brilliant #MSWL

MG: This is the area I'd most like to expand!

YA: My first love! I'm always looking for YA that stands out.
Select adult SFF & horror.
Always open to author-illustrators & graphic novels. Plus @DanieleDHunter & I LOVE novels-in-verse! We tend toward lyrical writing generally.
