On the #kidlit side, I am particularly interested in Non-Fiction at the moment. I would love to find innovative pb's teaching approachable science (a recent fave is Cats are Liquid) and stories that focus on marginalized communities from #ownvoices authors. #mswl
Here's my current #MSWL:
In MG fiction: horror, contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi, action/adventure, mystery, and humor.
In children’s fiction: picture books (non-rhyming preferred).
Always looking for own voices, diversity, and LGBTQ+!!!
3/3 #WritingCommunity #amquerying
I’m open to queries once again, folks! Looking for picture books, chapter books and graphic novels from author illustrators as well as middle grade and young adult projects! See my #MSWL for more about specific projects I’d love to see! And once again, Happy New Year! 🎉✌🏼
Lori Steel (open to queries) @BookishsortHello 2021! Can't wait to see the terrific stories I'll find in my query box this year by #amquerying #kidlit writers and illustrators. #amagenting
Particularly seeking PB/GN writer-illustrators, heartfelt, adventurous, and groundbreaking MG/YA across genres. #MSWL
Happy New Year, #amquerying #kidlit creators! I am once again OPEN TO QUERIES! Can't wait to see your new #PB, #CB, #MG, and #YA projects! See pinned tweet for my general #MSWL. I'll also thread below with some specifics that I'd really love right now.
My 1st #MSWL post for 2021.
I enjoy Shakespeare. I'd like to see a queer take on Shakespeare for #YA or #MG or even #PB.
We aren't actively looking at queries RN so it's ok to wait to submit until Jan. 4

4/ Only 26% of my list is KidLit of ANY kind. I'm super picky about what I take on, but I represent PB, chapter, MG, and YA, and would love to see more voicey, character-driven stories in all of these categories in my inbox in the new year.
#MSWL #PB hi friends! i'm dying for more picture books! i would love...
--projects about incredible historical figures we overlooked bc ~colonialism~
--funny offbeat projects with unique art in the vein of DRAGONS LOVE TACOS, PETRA, THE BAD SEED, etc.
I would loooove to work on something similar to THE HAUNTED LAKE, which is a really unique, spooky, folktale-feeling picture book. (Except I'd prefer something with a shorter length.) Send those spooky stories my way! #MSWL
Jada Yuan @jadabirdSome truly exciting news: my grandmother, Dr. Chien-Shiung Wu, is going to be on a Forever stamp from the U.S. Postal Service. She was a nuclear physicist who helped disprove a fundamental law of nature and changed a field dominated by men. We’re so grateful for the honor. pic.twitter.com/cIL23tki80
Hi someone write this PB for me! #mswl
SUPER excited to get first round of illustrations for my author’s picture book I, TOO, AM MOZART about the life and times of Maria Anna "Nannerl" Mozart, who was as gifted of a musician and composer as her younger brother Wolfgang adelinalirius.com #mswl #Pennsylvania
Making it official! 🎺 I am now formally open to children's submissions - picture book texts, fiction through from early readers to YA, illustrators & graphic novelists. I'll update with an #MSWL later but for now will just say I'm looking forward to reading all your work! 💕
#illustrators, I am here for you! I'd love to see your art, from PB to MG to YA.
I'd also like to see author-illustrated graphic novels. My kids love them. I love them. And I will continue to be an advocate for the fun and creativity and hard work that goes into them. #MSWL
