FRONT DESK by @kellyyanghk had a great 2018. I’m thrilled so many see what I saw in it! Send me more immigrant stories that need to be told #MSWL

Adult fiction: I do very little adult NF, but I do love reading it. Offbeat/literary but not experimental, commercial and book club, adventure/mystery. No fantasy, sci-fi, category romance. #MSWL

john w. rudolph @johnwrudolph · Jan 7

Adult narrative NF: Topics include history, music, sports, popular science, business, pop culture. Anything new and newsworthy that can support a book-length narrative. #MSWL

john w. rudolph @johnwrudolph · Jan 7

YA: Much the same as MG--humor, realistic teen stories, #ownvoices, adventure, sci-fi. Also, love a good teen romance, horror, mystery, but not super-dark.

Children's NF at all levels: curriculum tie-ins, PB bios, multicultural history, science, sports, pop culture.

Middle Grade: Humor--if you can truly make me laugh, I'll sign you up. Literary: I've never had a Newbery-winning client and I want one. Adventure stories that aren't fantasy, grounded fantasy, sci-fi. #ownvoices for sure. Artists, MG graphic novels! #MSWL

For picture book clients, I'm looking for professional artists and illustrators who can write their own texts. Texts should run 500 words or so. Character-driven stories, stories about identity, animals, emotions. Avoid lists, holidays, rhyme. #MSWL

Happy New Year! For 2019, I thought I'd throw out some #MSWL ideas for writers. Broadly, I'm looking for all kinds of picture books by author/illustrators, MG, YA, Childrens' NF, Adult Narrative NF, and adult Lit Fiction. Details thread follows:

Two #MSWL thoughts from over the weekend: I'd love to see the joy & playfulness & heart & smarts of shows like Jane the Virgin and The Good Place captured in book form for MG and/or YA.

In anticipation of reopening to queries on *1/15/19*, I've updated my #MSWL, and added a new wishlist item: MG graphic novels!…

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Jan 7

I hope everyone is having a fabulous 2019! I'm now open once again to queries and CAN NOT WAIT to see what you've been working on! You can query me here:… #amquerying #pubtip

Right, (like a lot of other people) I've finished reading The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle (🤯) and I'm adding high-concept novels to my submissions wishlist!

Ashley Wyrick @ashley_wyrick · Jan 6

YA Mystery/Thriller with strong friendgroup themes. Think How to Get Away with Murder. #MSWL

So moved by #IDanielBlake on BBC2 last night. I'd love to hear Daisy's voice in children's fiction. What's life like for a 12 yr old when your mum can't make the rent? When you have to move 100s of miles to be housed? When your Mum has an apple while you're having your tea #MSWL

Ashley Wyrick @ashley_wyrick · Jan 5

On the hunt again with another #mswl tweet. YA or MG with an unreliable MC.
