Contemporary

Brit Brooks @Britny_Brooks · Sep 13

Little late to #MSWL today, but I'd love for some agents to send some illustrated, quirky, pop culture adult nonfiction or some lighthearted, contemporary MG & YA with some strong nerd culture flavor! (I've been itching for some cosplay/comic con/food competition stories.)

Funny contemporary middle grade with a high concept twist #MSWL

Good morning! It's #MSWL day!

Agents + editors will be tweeting what they wish they had in their inboxes.

Writers can take note of which agents may be a good fit, and then submit work traditionally.

Need any help? @kkhendin and I are standing by!

I've been pretty vocal in the past week about what I'm looking for, but I'll say it again with the #MSWL tag!

- Thrillers! 😳 (Adult & YA)
- Horror! 😰 (Adult & YA)
- Contemporary YA 😎
- Speculative 🤔😍 (YA & adult)
- Fantasy ⚔️🔮🛡🐉(MG/YA/adult)
- Hilarious MG 😂

While financial times may call for a movement to escape reality after the contemporary pulse, I say grasp it. #mswl I'm looking for YA SFF that depicts disparity in wealth. As Mr. Piketty claims, middle class may actually have been an aberration! @nytimes nytimes.com/2018/09/12/bus…

It’s #MSWL day! Agents—I’m desperate to see more #MG in my inbox! Looking for voice-driven contemporary and magical realism like #Rooftoppers and historical like #TheWarThatSavedMyLife and #BostonJane Also open to a fun fantasy—looking for the next #EllaEnchanted!

Also: smart thrillers, unusual crime, contempt romance in the vein of M o’keefe #mswl

Top of my #MSWL: women's fiction and romance by/about underrepresented voices. Contemporary. Historical. Contemporary or historical with a magical element. Grounded SF. Romcoms. Happy books. Also, maybe a big, sweeping gothic romance?

#MSWL Contemporary fantasy that breaks the mold so hard its like the mold never even existed. No urban bounty-hunters, no small-town detectives, etc. New characters, new settings, new plots, and new perspectives only. Show me something new!

A little fall submission #MSWL! At the top of my list is YA contemporary realistic that is emotional and layered and classic coming-of-age. This summer I loved Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian and We Are Okay by Nina LaCour. Two different books that really got it.

#MSWL:
Contemporary, emotional love stories
Sweeping historical fiction
Smart, elevated thrillers
Novels in verse
Picture books with STEM hooks
Anything else that’s voice driven, literary, and innovative!
