Contemporary

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Jan 2

I'll send out some more in-depth #mswl tweets next week, but in the meantime, two things I'd really love to see more of in my inbox are dual timeline narratives and crime / mystery novels, historical or contemporary. Send 'em!

#mswl 2019: A middle grade contemporary series as smart and pitch perfect as Jason Reynold’s Track Team series (6/13)

#mswl 2019: Sweet, smart YA contemporary love stories: think TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE, WHAT IF IT’S US, SIMON VS., EVERYTHING LEADS TO YOU, etc. (3/13)

Here are just SOME of the things on my #mswl in 2019 (but I of course often fall in love with the thing I didn't know I was looking for)... (1/13)

#mswl 2019: Smart, hold-no-punches YA contemporary. One of my favorite titles of 2018 was SADIE by Courtney Summers so if you’ve written something like that, yes please! Other favorite recent contemporary YA: Nina LaCour’s WE ARE OKAY, Angie Thomas’s THE HATE U GIVE. (2/13)

And I always have room for more brilliantly crafted middle grade. My big loves are contemporary, historical fiction and magical realism. #mswl

I just started reading this yesterday, but would love stories like this in #YA #contemporary #MSWL I'm drawn to the mystery and drama in it. goodreads.com/book/show/3233…

Hello #amquerying #writingcommunity - I open to submissions in less than 24 hours! Curious what I’m looking for? A full list can be found on the @MetamorphLitAg website or QueryTracker, but here’s a little #mswl to get you started. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!

Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix · 31 Dec 2018

OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Queer contemporary romance! Show me all kinds of relationships, all genders. Make me BURN with desire to see the relationship ignite!
(I am queer myself and want to read all the nuance and complexities of queer romance explored without hesitation)

13) Cute, funny contemporary YA romcoms that are driven by dynamic characters. #MSWL

I’d love a #PB that’s a lyrical exploration of the stars, moon, and/or Mars.
A #MG at space camp.
Or #YA Historical in a town close to the Kennedy Space Center during the Apollo program.
Nonfiction- anything and everything space
#MSWL for 2019

In YA, I’m dying for a
- twisty psychological thriller
- dark sister story
- glimmering fantasy that’s grounded in reality
- contemporary witch story
- historical fantasy

I’m open to most things in YA, so if you think we’d be a good fit, query the agency! #MSWL

Yesterday I read BURN FOR ME by @ilona_andrews and I think I have found a new favorite romance series. It is also exactly what I mean when I say I want paranormal or contemporary fantasy that feels new and different. I want more like this! #mswl
