hi friends! i would LOVE to see an #ownvoices picture book biography about eddie aikau
i just finished the most recent mfm epsiode where @KarenKilgariff covers his story, and i might have cried a little (a lot) #mswl
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
Seth Fishman @sethasfishmanScientists who write and/or draw. Looking for pitches of a kids picture book explaining how cold weather and global warming aren’t mutually exclusive. Or adult.
Definitely on my #mswl
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
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/
NERDY @nerdyasiansamerican history books have forgotten her, but susan ahn cuddy was the first female gunnery officer of any ethnicity in the u.s. navy. she joined the navy in 1942 and served until 1946, reaching the rank of lieutenant. she really deserves to be remembered. pic.twitter.com/C475lDaxB7
Ahem! #MSWL: Picture book biography of Susan Ahn Cuddy. (The Kendall Family is a Navy family.)
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…
john w. rudolph @johnwrudolphHappy 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:
Another #MSWL for 2019! (Be sure you're following all our agents so you can keep up to date on their clients and interests.)
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
