Picture books (fiction or NF) that show neurodiversity, disability, LGBTQ+ family structures, diaspora or immigrant experiences
Adult NF: I'm interested in cookbooks that teach me something new about the world
Andrea Walker @_AndreaWalker_#MSWL Picture books! I would love to represent a pb author or author/illustrator. I love whimsical ideas, lyrical writing, fic-informational, nf, and more. If you're unsure, please query!
Picture Books are my absolute favorite. It would be a dream to add an author/illustrator to my list who's style is bold, dark, or moody similar to Jon Klassen or Ashling Lindsay #MSWL
Lorraine M.L.M🍃 @authorlorraineMI'm a huge fan of fairy tales but I've not come across a lot of these featuring marginalised characters. Are fairy tale retellings that feature diverse characters marketable in the current climate? #askDVpit
My #MSWL page is live! Agents, send me your lyrical or funny picture books, your grim and adventurous MG, and all of your dark, whimsical, and emotional YA. Graphic novels are also welcome 📚 bit.ly/MeriamMetouiMS…

Lucy Irvine @lucyirvine93Hello friends! I am day 3 of #workingfromhome and still adjusting to this new normal. But will hopefully have lots of time to get through my submissions next week if you're waiting for a response - excited to have the time to properly dig in!
Have a look at my #mswl pinned tweet if you're thinking of submitting - I'm actively looking to build my list and welcome submissions in a whole range of genres, from picture books to SFF 👋
now that many editors are working remotely from home, I've been sending out lots of new picture book stories from my author/illustrators... here's to reading! #MSWL and big hugs to #kidlitart peeps xo
Feeling a little down about the idea of working from home, and from the realization that I likely won't travel to Chicago next month and see my family. Agents, now would be a GREAT time to slide into my inbox with a heartwarming and cutesy picture book! #MSWL
Atlas Obscura @atlasobscuraThis colony of glowworms—one of the largest in all of New South Wales—illuminates the stale, inky air like a constellation of blue-green stars. trib.al/4q6NtKA
Just want to reiterate that I've always wanted to work on a glowworm picture book! I think it would be so visually dazzling. #MSWL
Agents, if you snag something great today that would be a good fit for @BeamingBooksMN please keep me in mind! Send me a DM if you need my email address. #PitMad #kidlit #PB #OwnVoices #MG #CB

I’ve toyed with the idea of writing a Grateful Dead picture book for years but can’t figure a way into the story without mentioning drugs so... Someone else might have a good idea though so I guess I should tag it with a #mswl ✌🏼❤️😊💀
Updated #MSWL: humorous PB's with a surprise twist, and non-fic focusing on unsung heroes (pref. #ownvoices), MG with a clear narrative arc, unforgettable characters and a strong emotional core. Stories that bring out the magic in the ordinary. And ghosts!
