I'd be interested to see a YA nonfiction guide to money that acknowledges the gig economy, high cost of secondary education, lack of pensions, etc. How can today's teens/late millennials prepare for a much different financial reality than previous generations? #mswl

In YA nonfiction, I'd be interested to see some guides to activism (including eco and political activism) written for teens from somebody with a solid platform. #mswl

I'd still love a super witty and clever beach read/romcom in YA. #mswl

This year, I'd love to see more trade non-fiction for children and teens that goes beyond a traditional biography! Show me science, history, cultural movements, our planet, etc. in ways I haven't seen before! (bonus points if it's a graphic novel!) #NonFiction #pb #mg #ya #mswl

@ericsmithrocks What YA would you like have come across your desk?

When I open up for queries again (Springtime?), I am desperate for some more YA SFF genre blending novels, with the kind of expert world building I've seen in @RantingOwl @heidiheilig and @SanguMandanna's books. #MSWL

I just started reading this yesterday, but would love stories like this in #YA #contemporary #MSWL I'm drawn to the mystery and drama in it. goodreads.com/book/show/3233…

Hello #amquerying #writingcommunity - I open to submissions in less than 24 hours! Curious what I’m looking for? A full list can be found on the @MetamorphLitAg website or QueryTracker, but here’s a little #mswl to get you started. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!

Also, I just saw the trailer for Bird Box with Sandra Bullock and I will totally be all about that comp title for any incoming YA or MG manuscripts. #MSWL

13) Cute, funny contemporary YA romcoms that are driven by dynamic characters. #MSWL

12) I’m dying for a YA set during the 1920s. Something sharp like gin or bubbly like champagne. #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 21 Dec 2018

11) I’m still desperate for a good YA horror. Something dark and disturbing. More eerie than gory, and grounded in reality (no supernatural killers needed). #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 21 Dec 2018

10) I want more YA stories where the dynamic friend duo is front and center (and any romantic relationships take a backseat) #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 21 Dec 2018

7) Send me the hungry ones, the MCs who want something so badly, it rattles their bones. Who encourage their ambition. (YA) #MSWL

6) Send me your jagged girls, the ones who broke and put themselves back together. The ones who don’t hide what they are (YA). #MSWL

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!)

#MSWL: YA Sci-Fi's with underrepresented protagonists as well as unexpected antagonists.
