Contemporary

Authors, I'm on the hunt for gentle bruisers.

That scary mofo coming at you in a dark alley? He’s an amazing lover & will make you breakfast just after he breaks some guy’s face. Any subgenre. If contemp I'm a big fan of @MollyOKwrites & @Charlotte_Stein.

I'd like to see more light/fun contemporary YA or women's fiction set outside of the United States. I love to armchair travel! #MSWL

Can someone please send me a YA contemporary about a teen #fanfic community? Because that would be amazing. #MSWL

#MSWL I want an MS set a DEF CON—the huge hacker convention held in Las Vegas. Crazy stuff must go down. High-energy. Thriller-esque. Contemporary or near-future (give me crazy attire, cool world building), YA or Adult. Save the world. Solve a puzzle. But HIGH stakes!!!

@wensday95 wants #Historicalfiction with a slight #speculative or #horror bent like Alma Katsu's THE HUNGER or Sarah Perry's THE ESSEX SERPENT
BONUS: she also wants contemp mystery/thriller where setting is integral like Jane Harper's books or Attica Locke's BLUEBIRD, BLUEBIRD.

I'd love to see a contemporary MG or YA cooking competition like Iron Chef or even something with a little more quirk like Food Wars. #mswl

I’m acquiring upbeat, popular romance in the 60k and 80k ranges, 80k-ish women’s fiction, and psychological thrillers anywhere from 80k-100k. All contemporary. Hook me with your high concept, fun-to-read characters, and fresh, relevant worldview. entangledpublishing.submittable.com/submit/ #MSWL

I definitely need more contemporary YA, but I am looking for contemporary that is not the every day setting. Elevate it and allow me to escape for my every day. #MSWL

I keep finding out people in my life are half Cuban like me and it feels amazing? so please send me your biracial and/or latinx #ownvoices contemporary YA/MG stories! #MSWL

Penny Moore @precociouspenny · Jul 27

I’m still looking for a feel good contemporary YA rom com with a big commercial hook featuring POC characters a la Jenny Han. It’s like the great white whale of my career. Someone send it to me now, please. #MSWL

Kat Enright @katenright · Jul 23

In contemporary YA, I'd love to see more queer romance--like SIMON VS, but F/F! Also, theater kids! Send me your stories! #MSWL

Kat Enright @katenright · Jul 23

I'm looking for contemporary fantasies like UNDEAD GIRL GANG or WICKED LIKE A WILDFIRE. Witches and vampires and magic and more. But most of all vibrant characters, particularly girls who aren't afraid to be messy. #MSWL

T.S. Ferguson @TeeEss · Jul 19

If somebody wanted to write an Utena-style pseudo-contemporary diverse fantasy with sword-fighting, butch and femme queer girls, and colorful, floral imagery, and then have their agent sub it to me, I wouldn't be upset. I'm just sayin'. #MSWL

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu · Jul 18

I want a contemporary romance like Samira and Frankie’s relationship in #LoveIsland You get me that and I’ll sign you ASAP #mswl
