Throwing out a few Monday #MSWL items into the universe while we’re all still under quarantine. I’m enjoying doing this as I’m looking to build my list right now across PB, MG, and YA, with a focus in MG. Agent friends, if we haven’t connected yet, let’s!
Kyle Lukoff @Shekels_LibraryIt looks like there are a bunch of trans kidlit writers coming out with books in the next couple years, which is great, but...I'm not sure if there are any trans women? Which is the opposite of acceptable.
My client list is super queer but I am definitely on the lookout for stories by trans women, both in fiction and non-fiction! We need these stories. I represent all ages, but primarily focus on childrens, picture books through YA! #mswl
Day 34: I have one solitary crisp, white eyebrow hair. Pajamas have fused to my body. I eat pickles for breakfast now.
Agents! I'm looking for manuscripts to boost everyone's spirits! Heart-warming MG! YA fantasy to get lost in! Funny or sweet PBs! #MSWL
Savannah Brooks @slbrooks91If you’re looking for motivation to finish that piece of wrtiting, just know Hector and Boris believe in you. They think you can do anything. pic.twitter.com/KUriV2Zgua
My kingdom for a picture book about rats trying to prove they’re as cute as mice. Positive rat PR would truly make my list complete #mswl
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
