AN #MSWL UPDATE:
I have inherited three middle grades. For a grand total of five MGs making up my entire list.
... safe to say I’m trying to find that perfect YA to balance it out right about now. Keep that in ya noggins for 2019 (but I’m still v much interested in seeing MG!)
Andrea Walker @_AndreaWalker_While working on my shiny new website & compiling my #MSWL for 2019, I noticed one theme transcending the categories: outer space.
I’ll expand on this a bit but please note, I’m NOT open to queries at this time. By referral only.
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

This, in realistic (or realistic with a twist) YA/MG! Also, repeating #mswl for murky "would you really make the right choice?" stories a la Passengers
Sylvia Liu @artsylliuMicrochimerism: where your mother's or children's cells live on in you & can help or hinder your health. Eg your child's fetal cells can repair your heart, prevent breast cancer & Alzheimer's; your mom's cells can prevent preeclampsia. #science #sciencefact twitter.com/newscientist/s…
This is *wild* to think about... (#mswl nonfiction for middle grade or YA readers)
Amanda Jain @wensday95Someone write a book for me about these night lunch wagons. Maybe with a hint of magic? Because how could magic not be involved in this gorgeousness?? #mswl twitter.com/atlasobscura/s…
Amanda Jain @wensday95A reminder that Julia Child was an intelligence officer for the CIA during WWII. Oh, hey, also a reminder that I would very much like a novel about this. #mswl
I love the idea that magic could be lurking in our world, if only we knew where to look. Have such a story (PB, MG, YA, adult speculative/horror)? Please send it my way! #MSWL

I'm a huge fan of mysteries & crime thrillers. In response to recent news in the mystery community, I'm opening my closed sub policy thru 12/20 to queries from #POC #writers of MG & YA mysteries & thrillers. Query erin_submissions at emliterary.com. #mswl
Hi #amquerying folks! Just a reminder that Corvisiero will be closing to queries on Dec 1! If you have a dark #YA thriller/contemporary/mystery or a #MG survial, those are at the top of my wishlist right now 😁 #mswl
My annual it’s-dark-outside-at-4pm #mswl for a YA or middle grade narrative set at summer camp has arrived right on schedule. The more queer the better, must have emotional stakes, graphic novels welcome.
