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
#mswl 2019: I'm often looking for the thing I didn't realize I wanted, so please, if you have a new MG or YA you're querying, try me! I'd love the opportunity to consider your work. I aim to reply to all queries within 10 weeks of receiving them. (12/13)
#mswl 2019: anything with a "cool" factor. I love big, cinematic stories or stories that have huge emotional range: books with high emotional intensity and those sentences that slam into the reader and take their breath away. (11/13)
Kat Enright @katenrightHello all! I will be closed to queries from Thursday December 20th through Wednesday January 2nd, reopening on January 3rd with an UPDATED MSWL. All queries sent in that time will be deleted unread. Thank you so much for your understanding, and Happy Holidays!
Hey all, I'm still closed till tomorrow, but I've posted my updated #MSWL on the MSWL website and on my website (link in bio). If you'd like to see what I'm looking for, please check it out. But what I'm most excited about -- I'M OPENING TO MIDDLE GRADE!
Back to Work Day is here! Happy January 2, 2019!
Agents: let’s hang out 👀
A new year reminder that I’m looking for diverse #MG, #YA, and #graphicnovels - you can learn more at my #MSWL below 👇🏼
#MSWL. One 2019 resolution is to expand my representation to Middle Grade. I love these books, especially ones w/messages of hope/inclusion/diversity that may also address difficult emotional situations. And ones w/fantasy/superpowers. Please query me at email@example.com.
This year, I'd love to see more trade non-fiction for children and teens that goes beyond a traditional biography! Show me science, history, cultural movements, our planet, etc. in ways I haven't seen before! (bonus points if it's a graphic novel!) #NonFiction #pb #mg #ya #mswl
AN #MSWL UPDATE:
I have inherited three middle grades. For a grand total of five MGs making up my entire list.
... safe to say I’m trying to find that perfect YA to balance it out right about now. Keep that in ya noggins for 2019 (but I’m still v much interested in seeing MG!)
