Hi all! Here is my current #mswl! In short, I'm focused on developing four areas of my clientele in 2019: (1) PB author-illustrators; (2) MG fiction; (3) Graphic novels; and (4) Nonfiction across all kid lit genres. Hit me up, queryers! cleliagore.com/2019/01/11/201…
For those #amquerying I remain open to queries. Genres high on my #mswl for 2019 in adult and YA include horror, historical fantasy, chilling mysteries, and tense stories about survival. In nonfiction would love some weird or fun history.
Also, please, as ever: any "big think" nonfiction. I'm fascinated by investigative journalism (I loved DREAMLAND by Sam Quinones); tech, pop science, pop psychology, and anything with a feminist lens (currently reading GOOD AND MAD by Rebecca Traister & loving it). #MSWL
(Agent novel and nonfic #mswl continued)
-Stories that show what it is to be part of multiple communities, (bonus pts for dating misadventures)
-a coming of age memoir that reads like Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, or Nina LaCour (2/3)
Agent friends, my #mswl is overflowing! Please think of me in 2019 for exciting new:
-memoirs that bring to mind a YA Educated—delving deep into an author’s journey through and/or out of an insular community
-illustrated or graphic novel middle grade nonfiction or memoir (1/3)
john w. rudolph @johnwrudolphHappy New Year! For 2019, I thought I'd throw out some #MSWL ideas for writers. Broadly, I'm looking for all kinds of picture books by author/illustrators, MG, YA, Childrens' NF, Adult Narrative NF, and adult Lit Fiction. Details thread follows:
Another #MSWL for 2019! (Be sure you're following all our agents so you can keep up to date on their clients and interests.)
YA: Much the same as MG--humor, realistic teen stories, #ownvoices, adventure, sci-fi. Also, love a good teen romance, horror, mystery, but not super-dark.
Children's NF at all levels: curriculum tie-ins, PB bios, multicultural history, science, sports, pop culture.

My 2019 goal is more nonfiction. Bring me your food histories, social histories, material culture proposals, true crime projects, gimme all of 'em. Basically, if it's nonfiction, I wanna see it. #mswl
I’d be ecstatic to find more nonfiction for any age. I particularly swoon for memoirs, popular history, social commentary, and pop culture. Recent loves: Laymon’s Heavy, Chee’s How to Write an Autobiographical Novel, Westover’s Educated. #MSWL
