High Concept

Dana Murphy @manadurphy · 8 Feb 2017

A romantic comedy that is actually both romantic and funny and maybe even high concept, a la my favorites the @fuggirls ROYAL WE. #mswl

Upper MG with a whimsical, high-concept premise, lots of adventure and action, and smart, capable, diverse characters. #MSWL

High-concept YA of any genre, though there's a special place in my heart for contemporary #MSWL

Alycia Tornetta @Weechagirl · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL fantasy YA with an epic romance and a very high-concept. Preferably slow burn. Nothing set contemporary.

#MSWL LGBTQA always welcome. I’d love some YA f/f retellings or a great, high concept contemporary YA.

#mswl high concept brainy FUN situations asking the BIG questions like "The Good Place"

For YA, I'm really into sci-fi and survival thrillers right now. High concept with appealing, unique hooks #MSWL

Tip: I have more room on my list for MG than YA right now. Diverse, plot-driven, imaginative, high-concept, heartfelt. Hit me. #MSWL

Andrea Cascardi @aecbks · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL MG/YA fiction high-conceptl but w/fully-dimensional characters, ie intersection of literary/commercial. Twisty plots no horror or SF

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · 8 Feb 2017

For MG/YA, I’m looking for high-concept or commercial-leaning fiction. Good plots and good twists. Not picky on genre (but NO horror). #MSWL

Carly Watters @carlywatters · 5 Feb 2017

Seeking upmarket/structurally interesting/sweeping love stories of all kinds. #MSWL: a high concept LGBTQ love story in the vein of ONE DAY.

...a standout, high concept YA series; books about how identity is both passed down and reformed with each generation... (2/?) #DVPit #mswl

#MSWL in YA or Adult -> original ghost stories, eerie near-contemporary settings, long buried secrets, high concept coming of age.
