Hey #amquerying authors, I desperately want a picture book that introduces poetry to little peeps. Think the recent #STEM and science trends, but instead apply poetry. Pitch me in the comments 👇#pb #MSWL #poetry @ManuscriptWList
Contemporary, emotional love stories
Sweeping historical fiction
Smart, elevated thrillers
Novels in verse
Picture books with STEM hooks
Anything else that’s voice driven, literary, and innovative!
