Silvia Molteni Taking Submissions

What I'm looking for...

I am actively looking for Middle Grade novels, strong and diverse voices with brave narratives and contemporary and realistic settings, edgy, funny and moving Middle Grade fiction.

I am looking for YA fiction across all genres, but on my wish list at the moment is finding a great psychological thriller and a horror.

I am also on the hunt for non-fiction books aimed at children and YA – from memoirs to manuals, popular science and humorous books.

Generally speaking, across MG and YA fiction, I am drawn to voice-driven and character-driven narratives, LGBTQI story-lines and characters, endearing narrators, magical realism and upmarket literary fiction.
