Holiday House Publishing
My Manuscript Wish List
I'm an associate editor at Holiday House Publishing. I'm always on the lookout for MG and YA narrative nonfiction, especially on labor history, social movements, and art history. For nonfiction picture books, I'm looking for manuscripts on STEAM subjects. If there is almost as much back matter as there is main text, I want to read it!
I also work on middle grade and YA fiction and graphic novels. My favorite genres include contemporary realistic fiction, fantasy, horror, and mystery. I gravitate most to stories with working class characters, thoughtful world building, and a touch of humor.
Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Submissions from this site can be sent to: email@example.com
Please include #MSWL in the subject line of your email and include a short summary in the body of your email. Submissions can be attached as a Word document or a PDF.
