Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz

Since I’m now back open to queries, I’d love to share a bit more about what types of projects I’m currently looking for. Buckle up for a #MSWL thread. 💜

PICTURE BOOKS
In the PB space, I have 3 top priorities:

1. Stories by BIPOC creators in general, particularly family narratives. I love falling in love with a new fictional family!

2. Humor! I need a good laugh. Kids do, too.

3. MAGIC! Send me magical stories!!! ✨

#MSWL
PB, MG, A Fic and NF
Immersive worlds, radiant voices from the first line, things that are familiar but have their own unique twist, and always with relatable but currently relevant themes. Laughter is great but I'm not the best fit for comedy.

I’m excited to find author/illustrated picture books, and non-fiction picture book manuscripts, especially ones about people and moments we should know about but don’t. #MSWL

✨To all the picture book authors of the world✨

I have been closed to unsolicited picture book subs for a while, but now, I feel really good about bringing on a few authors.

I’ll be open to picture book subs for a small window August 10-Sept 1 only

In my recent addiction to food-focused travel TV, I've learned a bit about Queen of Creole Cuisine Leah Chase and how she literally fed the '60s civil rights movement and wow what a queen indeed. Could be an awesome PB bio subject...👀 #MSWL

Can somebody write a picture book about the Argentinian parakeets that live in Green-Wood Cemetery and their colorful history? I am their biggest fan #MSWL

I'm also acquiring the select picture book! I'm looking for heartfelt stories about marginalized folks' experiences, nonfiction bios, and laugh-out-loud pbs with sneaky adult humor.
