agents! i figured i should update you all on what i'd love to see in my lbyr inbox, so i'm hoping this helps light their path my way. ~please~ reach out if you have any questions or projects you think may be a fit! (please excuse typos or winding logic!) #mswl #ya #mg #pb #gn
Ali Herring @HerringAliWould love a YA contemporary that's a series of letters written to a younger sister (now 15) from a sister who died at 16/17 when girl was a 3-yo. Imagine a serious GOOD LUCK CHARLIE meets THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. Could alternate between letters & new sibling's perspective. #MSWL
The older sister's story'd be told to the younger & of course that would relate & also contrast to younger's life (b/c I don't see her being sick too). Younger sister gets to live her life, but also gets to see her older sister "lived" vibrantly too, as long as she could. #MSWL

Peter Knapp @petejknappMy graphic novels are taking up more and more of my very limited shelf space! I just finished STEPPING STONES by Lucy Kinsey and really loved it; in it, Lucy wants to move back to the city--but (being city bound at the moment) I came for farm and stayed for the barn kittens! pic.twitter.com/Bo2gDrwQ3k
Anyhow, graphic novels are high up on my #mswl at the moment! They've been a big source of company during the lockdown.
Browne & Miller @BrowneandMillerMerry, merry, ready to query? Check out what we’re actively looking for in 2020. #MSWL bit.ly/2XaGCUG

lyn @MAMETCHltfw i feel bad for taking over 2 weeks with a commission but then i think about how the pope commissioned michelangelo to paint the sistine chapel and it took 4 years and he literally ran away twice cuz he hated painting and wanted to sculpt and the pope kept hunting him down
#MSWL Michelangelo and the Pope Sistine Chapel story funny and informative for young creative readers to feel better about life. GN format of course!
Angeline⚔️Rodriguez @gelrdrgzsometimes when I think the world has lost its wonder I remember that there are special pigeons called thief pouters that are specifically bred to be sexy enough to steal other people's pigeons reddit.com/r/IAmA/comment…
Where’s this YA romcom? #MSWL
ray stoeve (they/them) @raystoevef/f YA has almost NO trans girls in it, have we ever talked about that??? that needs to change. publish more trans women. write trans girls as your LIs (WITHOUT being transphobic or weird about it or making the girl's trans status the focus of the plot/pairing).
Why did I wait so long to watch The Peanut Butter Falcon? Heartbreaking and heartwarming, funny, quietly powerful people relationships, wonderful music, an authentic portrayal of the South. Loved. #MSWL #bettersouth open.spotify.com/track/3WTyVolT…
Here is my #mswl darleyandersonblog.com/2020/02/25/mee… Generally, outside of crime, things that are uplifting & are about finding/making connections. High concept, feel-good, love stories. And across children's uplifting again, funny, things inspired by kindness and nature.
Kate Nash @katenashagent📢 Deal news!
Love in Lockdown by Chloe James (aka @FionaWoodifield) to @MatiMcDo at Avon, Harper Collins. Agent: me.
