Joanna Moult @JoannaMoultI'm loving the #WMPitch tweets. But there are SO many & it's quite overwhelming so I feel I may have missed a gem. If you think I might be a good fit for your work please send it to me. All submission details are here skylark-literary.com. See tweet 👇 below for my wishlist
My #MSWL is for funny, warm-hearted MG or an engaging, absorbing MG adventure, partic told from fresh perspectives. In YA, a super-fresh hook & vivid characters, whether with contemp realistic setting or with fantasy/magical elements. #OwnVoices are v. imp to me #WMPitch
I've asked for this before, but I'll ask again. I would LOVE an MG that could comp to The Iron Giant.
I don't necessarily mean big robots from space; I mean sophisticated and emotionally taut MG that uses fantastical elements to take on gun violence/the military.
If I missed your #APIpitch, send query & 1st 5 pages to: QueryManager.com/QueryLynnetteN… #A: horror, thriller, cont. romance, & mystery. #YA: thriller, horror, SFF, mystery, & cont. #MG: SFF, mystery, cont., & horror. #PB #ownvoices #diversity #MSWL #BVM #OwnVoices #POC #API
Jumi Bello @jumibelloHey Literary Twitter, lend me your mind: tell me your favorite books that have centered houses and/or trains. Is there a book where a house is the narrator or the structural link? A book where a train is the literary star? Interpret however you wish. The wilder, the better.
Oooh this made me realize I’ve never done an #MSWL for MG or YA with an unusual narrator!

I'm primarily focused on MG & YA comics, but I'd love to find some early reader/chapter book-level comics that feel in line with these interests, and I selectively acquire graphic novels for adults, as well, for Disney's new adult imprint, Hyperion Avenue. #MSWL 3/?
