I am looking for stories from Black creators and from marginalized communities.

Bring on the MG fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary, and/or coming-of-age stories centered around black characters, experiences, and BLACK JOY!

Surprise! I’m opening to queries November 1st-18th! While I love picture books, I have a lot of them on sub so I’m hoping to find:

-YA fantasy, paranormal, or horror (no gore!)
-Adult fantasy or thrillers
-MG mystery

Would love to find a MG "monsters in a cornfield" sort of book with an authentic super small town setting written by a writer who's actually lived in a small town. #mswl

I'm still looking for a funny middle-grade novel in the vein of Rick Riordan Presents. Other comps include Ms. Marvel, ATLA, or a really gay School for Good and Evil. #MSWL

My #MSWL is also in need of MG fiction with quirky extraterrestrials like you'd find in the ragtag group of Guardians of the Galaxy or on the Syfy series Resident Alien.

Replying to @brooksbenjamin

Yes, thanks for mentioning, @AnikaDenise! Upper MG is absolutely at the top of my #mswl, so if any kidlit authors have non-genre MG manuscripts with protagonists who are 13 or 14 and in 8th grade, I’d love to consider them for Holiday House.

The historical voice is a fine line to walk between what readers today expect historical to sound like, as well as what they actually can and will read fluently. So historical in all age ranges (MG, YA, and Adult) really need an outstanding voice that straddles the line! #mswl

I am STILL SEARCHING for my MG authors. I’m EXTREMELY selective in my MG acquisitions and with which MG voices I am drawn to. I don’t vibe well with younger MG and have a tendency to only like Upper MG manuscripts/books. Fantasy is my sweet spot here too. #mswl
