Krista Harrington @BoyMomWrites@WilbursBF_Char Hello Charlotte!
Could you give me some samples of your favorite pbs?
Some are listed under the "My favorites include..." section of my #MSWL, but here are a few other recent fave PBs:
POETREE by Shauna LaVoy Reynolds, illus by Shahrzad Maydani
MY HEART by Corinna Luyken
WE DON'T EAT OUR CLASSMATES by Ryan T. Higgins
hello! it's almost my birthday & I would love nothing more than to find my inbox flooded with:
🏳️🌈 adorable queer love stories for mg and ya
🎃 spooky & silly mg with lots of magic
🌍 funny contemp ya that takes place outside of the US
🎂 pb or mg about baking & sprinkles
I'm caught up on agented submissions through 7/15! I'm hungry for all kinds of PB, MG, and YA. #MSWL of the moment: funny-sad MG, sex-positive YA, something in the vein of ANGUS, THONGS, AND FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING. (Please note: I can't consider unagented subs.)
- Psychological thrillers with romantic elements
- Cozy Mysteries (think @HallmarkPublish style)
- Rom Coms
- Small town romances with strong community ties and series potential
- Holiday romances
- Picture books with a great story, no rhyming ones at the moment.
Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburnAs a little girl who went on to take ballet for 18 years, Angelina spoke right to my heart. I pored over the illustrations for HOURS. I'll be interested to see the reissues, & I'm excited a new generation of dancers is about to get inspired.
On that note, I'd love to see a less-pink-frills-&-bows version of a kid falling in love with dance, if anyone's working on a picture book like that. Something with "Julián Is a Mermaid" energy. Really anything with "Julián Is a Mermaid" energy. 💃 #MSWL
Julia McCarthy @thejumblesI want to believe that stories can change hearts. I’m actively seeking stories about immigrants, refugees, and the marginalized, so please send me your graphic novels, your picture books, your YA, your MG! Love and empathy and awareness can be radical. #MSWL

Officially have my own Manuscript Wish List profile! And I already found one typo and there are certainly more which is why I will not get mad at your accidental typos in queries (we're all just people!). #MSWL manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/erin…
Jess Leake @JessLeakeJust saw @AllieLevick mentioned in this article of fantastic PB lit agents, and I can attest to how knowledgable, helpful, and quick to respond she is! writersdigest.com/publishing-ins…
Hey! I’m on a list! How cool.
Please send me your funny AND heartfelt author-illustrated PBs! I’m all about the ~layered~ narrative.
Big thanks to the incredible @JessLeake who totally made my morning with this!
MeganElizabethHoyt @meganhoytwritesIt’s official! This is the manuscript that won the SCBWI Work in Progress Award in 2017. I’ve been bursting with the news for months, and now that it’s been announced I can share! Such a beautiful story of courage and sacrifice that will include a special note from Lisa Bartali! pic.twitter.com/QFdzeH5zaH
WOW. This is the kind of picture book I dream of! I’m looking for bios of lesser-known, amazing humans who’ve flown under the radar until now. I want to hear their stories! & congrats, Megan! I can’t wait to read your book! #MSWL
Agents! I am caught up on subs through 6/19 and am hungry for more. A few things on my #MSWL today: a twisty YA thriller I can read at the beach, an #ownvoices MG novel with queer representation, a picture book in the vein of ESCARGOT with a protagonist that should be a plushie.
I am officially a Junior Literary Agent with @MetamorphLitAg. To say this is a dream come true is an absolute understatement. I cannot wait to embark on this new journey.

Talya Minsberg @tminsbergRose Lavelle's grade school shared the following last night: "Once upon a time, this little girl dressed up as her hero, Mia Hamm, for a book sharing project ... Now, little girls everywhere look up to her, and will be working hard to become like Rose." bit.ly/2XDZ0Zi pic.twitter.com/9CGy0zxbmT
I’m not crying, but that’s a lie—I’m totally crying. Totally on my picture book #MSWL !
Rachael Stein @rachaeljsteinEating chicken and rice from a Chinese food truck for lunch and thinking about how this combo transcends so many cultures. Has there ever been a picture book about the many kinds of perfection that is chicken and rice? #MSWL
