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."

Thanks so much for the chance to consider your work and sorry for my long delay in responding. You may have already found a great home for this by now. Unfortunately, I’m not the right agent advocate currently. I wish you success with the project.

—-Either it’s a form letter, or she checked my social media and saw I’m already agented.

Timeless telling styles always entice me as a bicentennial baby fed on Bemelmans, Betsy-Tacy, Burnett, and the Brontës. Yet I am especially hungry for bold, change-making projects that promote underrepresented perspectives and foster inclusion. Certainly, the two categories are not mutually exclusive. My favorite books are character-driven, quirky, heartfelt, slyly humorous, and ultimately hopeful.
