As a child, I didn't fully understand my ethnicity, so I would try to group myself into more widely-recognized nationalities. Would love to see a picture book manuscript touching those themes #MSWL #kidslit #publishing #writing

It's true! I'm open to queries so hit me with your best shot: querymanager.com/query/mferrara

Not only that—but I'm now open to picture books! My list is definitely children's focused in PB, MG, and YA -- but I'm selectively looking at Adult SFF and romance! #MSWL

Also, while I'm thinking about picture books and being Asian, where are my picture books with hapas? I know they're out there, but are there any that specifically use the word "hapa"? #mswl

Hello agent friends! I made a #MSWL website and forgot to tell you about it. Oops. Take a look and feel free to reach out if you think our tastes align 😃

2/4 #MSWL Picture books: fiction-only; character-driven humor; quirky & well-developed characters; strong narrative; motivated page turn; heartwarming (but not suffocating); community; identity; friendship; self-esteem; LGBTQ; diverse families and ownvoices; author-illustrators.

Hey agents! I updated my #MSWL for the New Year - I'm accepting YA, MG, and PB, looking for character-driven SF/F and contemporary stories. I'd love to hear from you, hop on the phone, or grab coffee sometime! nicolefiorica.wordpress.com/mswl/

Hi all! Here is my current #mswl! In short, I'm focused on developing four areas of my clientele in 2019: (1) PB author-illustrators; (2) MG fiction; (3) Graphic novels; and (4) Nonfiction across all kid lit genres. Hit me up, queryers! cleliagore.com/2019/01/11/201…

Writers, agents: I would REALLY like a quality biographical #ownvoices picture-book MS about Bayard Rustin -- one that honors his integrity & complexity. Hook me up in 2019? #MSWL npr.org/2019/01/06/682…

YA: Much the same as MG--humor, realistic teen stories, #ownvoices, adventure, sci-fi. Also, love a good teen romance, horror, mystery, but not super-dark.

Children's NF at all levels: curriculum tie-ins, PB bios, multicultural history, science, sports, pop culture.

For picture book clients, I'm looking for professional artists and illustrators who can write their own texts. Texts should run 500 words or so. Character-driven stories, stories about identity, animals, emotions. Avoid lists, holidays, rhyme. #MSWL

john w. rudolph @johnwrudolph · Jan 7

Happy New Year! For 2019, I thought I'd throw out some #MSWL ideas for writers. Broadly, I'm looking for all kinds of picture books by author/illustrators, MG, YA, Childrens' NF, Adult Narrative NF, and adult Lit Fiction. Details thread follows:

I *really* want to do more author/illustrator picture books and illustrated projects in general. For a sense of my taste, these are my clients: ldlainc.com/illustrators #MSWL
