I would jump through hoops for submissions by Jewish #BIPOC authors, for picture books, chapter books, middle grade and YA. I'd love joyful stories, romances, fantasies, quirky and funny, and... whatcha got? #MSWL #writingcommunity

I recently reread ALMA AND HOW SHE GOT HER NAME and it’s truly one of my all time favorites. I’d love to see more projects in my inbox exploring the things—names, food, places—that connect us with the generations before us. PB (author-illustrator only), MG/YA novel, GN. #mswl

Picture books with punch and heart, non-fiction with a fresh twist (especially for MG and YA!), fiction with a singular voice and fierce energy. Relevant, resonant, and smart.

Agents! With the conversation around the sheer amount of subs we receive, here's what will stand out to me right now: Vibrant, energetic pbs that focus on joy, character, community, & heritage. Super relevant NF for all age groups. Contemp/hist fiction that will sweep me away...
