I’d LOVE to see MG and YA contemporary graphic novel scripts (magical realism is good too). Author only, author/illustrator, or teamβ€”I’ll look at all. #MSWL #WritingCommunity #diversity #inclusive Query me via Query Manager.

I'm usually an all sci-fi/fantasy, all the time kinda editor.

BUT...

Right now I would *kill* for an OUTER BANKS-esque YA⁠—a soapy contemporary adventure/survival story, particularly one with a strong focus on class divide...

Agents, hit me up! #mswl

A magical #MSWL tweet from @BookEndsJessica!

"I want something whimsical and myth-based, but grounded in the real world. Especially fabulism or magical realism. I recently took on a book that's like an adult CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS, and I LOVE it! I want more."

In YA & MG (incl GNs):
* Diverse contemporary stories that are authentic instead of trendy
* Novels that are by & about people whose tales are yet untold
* Soulful, insightful, & well-crafted projects
* Stories that leave me cackling πŸ˜† or sobbing 😭 long after I've read THE END

In PBs:
* Thought-provoking or entertaining stories, but not ones whose aim is to teach a lesson
* Unique characters w/ a very specific & kid-centric point of view
* Marginalized voices that allow the reader to feel seen & heard
* Narratives that make me giggle 🀣 or tear up πŸ₯Ή
