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+!!!

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.

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
