I am so proud to represent MG and YA based on diverse mythologies and cultures like @thebookGLUTTON’s CHARLIE HERNANDEZ AND THE LEAGUE OF SHADOWS, and @KSekouM’s TRISTAN STRONG PUNCHES A HOLE IN THE SKY, but I want more! #MSWL in MG, YA, and Adult.

I want more epistolary, non-traditionally-told stories, like @_CoryLeonardo’s incredible upcoming THE SIMPLE ART OF FLYING, give me snippets of letters, poems, medical logs, in MG, YA or Adult. #MSWL

#MSWL Underrepresented minority and/or interracial romance, gene hacking, modernized Slavic heroic quest, characters with identities that span communities & their struggles, characters with East Asian, Slavic, and African heritage, & dark fairy tale retellings. MG, YA, Adult.

Coming late to #MSWL Day: Educational PBs that read like trade ones; character-driven MG; truth-telling YA; all of it diverse; #ownvoices preferred.

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 😂

Dipping out of sabbatical for #mswl!

First, I’d love to see more nonfiction. Especially interested in ecology/conservation & American history through the lens of marginalized people.

I’m also on the lookout for big-hearted, voice-driven middle grade—with plenty of humor, obv.

Most importantly, whatever ya or mg story it may be, a unique voice and complex characters will instantly draw me in. Ultimate #MSWL

#MSWL Still looking for a creepy MG ghost story. One of my favorite books as a kid was THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS*, by John Bellairs. Would love to find a modern day haunted house MG.

(*The illustration of the headlights still keeps me up at night. Eep!)

To cap off my #MSWL if you have a MG with themes similar to those, Esperanza Rising, pretty please send it my way. :)

Amanda Isabel Ramirez @AmandaIsA_Ram · 12 Sep 2018

I'd love to see more #MG and #YA fantasy adventures / magical realism stories rooted in Caribbean and Latinx cultures in my inbox 👀🌴 #MSWL

Lisa Abellera @LisaAbellera · 12 Sep 2018

A little late to #MSWL today but love to see Adult, YA, or MG fantasy based on Filipino mythology and folklore.

Alex Slater @abuckslater · 12 Sep 2018

Please send me #MG that you’re afraid pushes the envelope, concerning topics some might think “aren’t suitable”...yet that’s exactly why you had to write it. Send me your truth. #MSWL

Catherine Laudone @CatherineLaud · 12 Sep 2018

Would love to see #MG or #YA where the protagonist has to interact with the older generations. Imagine a world where the parents or grandparents aren’t dead, complacent, or missing—come on, dream with me. 😃 #MSWL

Catherine Laudone @CatherineLaud · 12 Sep 2018

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!

Mary C. Moore @Mary_C_Moore · 12 Sep 2018

If you comp THE GIRL WHO DRANK THE MOON for your MG, I want to see it. #MSWL

Megan Ilnitzki @megilnit · 12 Sep 2018

This dreary NYC fall weather also has me in the mood for something spooky. Either ghostly, creepy MG or thriller YA. #MSWL

Mary C. Moore @Mary_C_Moore · 12 Sep 2018

Latinx voices, all any stories, MG and women’s fiction. #MSWL
