Her MSWL says she accepts graphic novel submissions, but it’s unclear whether she will accept submissions that are script-only. Many agents aren’t specific about this in their guidelines, and it’s frustrating! I sent an email inquiring on 6/10.

6/14 reply: "I do accept graphic novel submissions that are text only. Feel free to omit the art and submit the text sample as you would a PB or novel."
