“YA non-fiction: Memoir, essay collections, you name it. Queer There & Everywhere is probably my favorite YA non-fic title in recent memory, and a great example of what I’d like to see.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

“With memoir, I love a story that feels like I’m reading a collection of essays. @JamesTateHill's BLIND MAN'S BLUFF and @m_scribe's WHAT WE DIDN'T EXPECT, an anthology of essays are two books I worked on that fit in that space.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

I consider memoirs to be a blend of fiction and nonfiction. AFTERSHOCKS by Nadia Owusu, WILD GAME by Adrienne Brodeur, and MY BROKEN LANGUAGE by Quiara Alegría Hudes are my all-time favorites. A good memoir reads like a novel and is packed with conflict, tension, and stakes.

Graphic “Novel” #MSWL

🍂 realistic teen stories
🍂 graphic memoir
🍂 graphic nonfiction
🍂 psychological horror

Note: I’m currently only looking for projects created by author/illustrators (one creator both writing and illustrating the book).
