Says Brooks: “In all honesty, I wanted to come back to MWW because it was hands-down the most enjoyable writers’ conference I attended last year. The conference organizers were friendly and helpful, my fellow faculty members were collegial, and the conference participants were welcoming and receptive to feedback. I’ve made many friends from last year’s conference, and I’m looking forward to seeing them again and making new acquaintances.”
Glad to have you back, Brooks!
What he’s looking for … adult fiction that runs the gamut from literary and upmarket to speculative (particularly urban/contemporary fantasy rooted in realistic settings, horror/dark fantasy, and magical realism), as well as historical and crime fiction. On the children’s side, he is seeking middle grade novels of all genres (but particularly fantasy adventure and contemporary), and is open to YA fiction of all types except paranormal romance. He would especially love to get his hands on a dark and/or funny contemporary YA project.
