For her one-on-one assessments at CYA Conference 2017 Danielle is looking for Young Adult(YA) and Middle Grade works, across all genres including graphic novel formats! 

Examples of what she likes to read and could possibly be looking for; Danielle has a background as a book blogger, so she's quite literally an open book when it comes to celebrating and discussing her reading habits on her blog – Alpha Reader – and also through her opinion writing

Danellie is seeking Young Adult and Middle Grade and graphic novels, but certainly some more manuscripts I’d love to read would include; 

 * A powerful verse-novel with strong point of view and story elements (think; Kwame Alexander, Sarah Crossan, Ellen Hopkins, and Steven Herrick). 

 * An assured short-story collection, or a story told in vignettes (think; Margo Lanagan, Sandra Cisneros, Kelly Link and Karen Russell) 

 * A graphic novel – in this I am open to anything for YA or MG readers (but in the past I have loved; Through the Woods by Emily Carroll, El Deafo by Cece Bell, Nimona by Noelle Stevenson, and This One Summer Summer by Mariko Tamaki & Jillian Tamaki)

Danielle submissions for assessment will be open longer than others and will only close on 14th June.
