Broadly, I and my colleagues at Disney are looking for big bets with high-concept commercial hooks, expert plotting and pacing, and the potential to become lead titles. #MSWL 4/?

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/?

Agents! It's been a loooong time since I've done an #MSWL on here, but what I'm acquiring has changed a lot since my last one, so I think it's about time to put a new one out there! Here we go . . . 1/?

First off, I'm @DisneyBooks's resident graphic novel expert! We're looking to grow that list fast, so for the time being I am ONLY open to graphic novel submissions.

(Sorry, prose & picture book writers—but I'll see you with my IP pitches!) #MSWL 2/?

for RRP MG, i want snarky, funny, action-adventure 📚 featuring young BIPOC & deeply rooted in ✨mythology & magic ✨

here too i'd love to see even more intersectional protagonists & stories that subvert the typical RRP formula, like the upcoming SERWA BOATENG! (4/6)

this means love stories ♥️, horror 👻, contemporary, scifi 🤖, speculative, & more!!

RRP is known for mythology & magic, & while those remain the pillars this imprint is built on, id love to see stories that explore culture & identity in new & unexpected ways (3/6)
