Picture books that celebrate food and family in the vein of FRY BREAD by Kevin Noble Maillard. #MSWL

I'm forever on the hunt for more funny picture books. Please send me your humor! I'm open to all types: loud, zany, quirky, strange, dry, subversive, potty, punny. Whatever you got, send it my way! #MSWL

In which my affection for Joel Gray only grows...

Playwrights, I am happy to read any Ghostlight YA, middle grade, or picture book manuscripts you write. #amagenting #mswl

My picture book #MSWL changed recently: I’m looking for author-illustrators (instead of text only projects) but I will make an exception for contests (like DVPit!), critiques, and conferences.

#MSWL includes all YA/MG/PB except fantasy. I'm hungry for something that grabs me in from the first line and totally distracts me from COVID worries. stringerlit.com

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!

Exciting bookish news: I have a shiny new #MSWL page! Agent friends, take a look (and hit me up if you want to geek out over mutual faves): manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/feat…

It 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

Rhythmic picture books that make for great read aloud. #mswl

Kait Feldmann @kaitfeldmann · Apr 10

Somebody please send me a picture book ms titled I HATE HUGS. It must not end in a change of heart. #mswl

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · Apr 6

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

Megan Ilnitzki @megilnit · Apr 6

Picture books with standout/breakout characters like THE BAD SEED and MOTHER BRUCE. #mswl

Rotem Moscovich @Spanish_Broom · Apr 6

With the world as it is, I'm looking for some fun/funny picturebooks, agent friends! And I love smart wordplay, too. #mswl
