Literary Agent Mark Gottlieb @Mark_Gottlieb · Feb 24

Looking for a #YA or #MG writer well-versed in the character of Grendel and Grendel's mother from BEOWULF for a book idea. DM or query via email if interested. #MSWL en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grendel

I want YA with NB protagonists. I want to see the whole LGBTQ+ spectrum normalized and represented. #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · Feb 22

I want YA that gives equal weight to "small" things (friends, grades, etc) and "big" things (bringing justice to the world). It's all connected! #MSWL

One week from today, I open back up to queries. I figured now would be a good time to go through my #MSWL!

The Chocolate War posed the question "Do I dare disturb the universe?" I want a book that barrels right past that question and into HOW. Give me YA where teens are changing the world #MSWL

I'm still on the hunt for #Christian/#Ispy #YA fantasy and contemporary. If you see your story on my #MSWL, I'd love to hear from you! anaiahpress.wordpress.com/2018/01/09/new…

I’ve been tweeting lots of Olympics-related #MSWL b/c of amazing teen athletes. Tonight was breathtaking skate by 15yo Russian figure skater Alina Zagitova. I’d love YA about teen skating phenom. Bonus points for intense rivalry with teammate/friend, like w/Evgenia Medvedeva.

#mswl YA summer love/ light & fluffy story about teens who work at a bowling alley where they manually reset the pins, ala southportlanes.com/bowling/

NBC Olympics @NBCOlympics

How freeskier Elizabeth Swaney made it to the #WinterOlympics with this very simple halfpipe run: bit.ly/2sFywrc pic.twitter.com/kHTAV7XND4

This made me laugh so freaking hard. I would so love to see a YA about a teen who games the system to make it to the Olympics or other hugely competitive international event. #MSWL

@KiraWatsonESA Hello! What are your Top Three #MSWL at the moment? :) #askagent

Replying to @BevTwomey

1) 90's YA with a young woman trying to enter the metal scene
2) Emotionally hefty contemporary YA. (Think #GirlInPiece)
3) YA/MG/PB on weightlifting and powerlifting #MSWL #askagent

I think about this scene in The Royal Tenenbaums ALL THE TIME.

I'd so love to read a YA novel from the perspective of a Margot. Adopted teen in a wealthy dysfunctional family. Yes please. #MSWL

Kate Brauning @KateBrauning · Feb 15

I would love a modern YA Samson and Delilah, any genre. I'd also love an M/M historical, modern, or fantasy retelling of David and Jonathan #MSWL
