THE WANGS VS. THE WORLD; smart, female-driven speculative fiction (mobs a plus); gritty YA in the vein of SADIE or THE WALLS AROUND US #MSWL

Do I need to remind everyone that I have HUGE #MSWL for MG, YA, and adult fiction and nonfiction by Islander authors?! Whatever island, fam. Just send it.

also: trans & nb leads, particularly in YA. if you're writing them I want to read them! (with particular preference to #ownvoices) #mswl

Agent friends, my #mswl is overflowing! Please think of me in 2019 for exciting new:
-memoirs that bring to mind a YA Educated—delving deep into an author’s journey through and/or out of an insular community
-illustrated or graphic novel middle grade nonfiction or memoir (1/3)

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.

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.

Ashley Wyrick @ashley_wyrick · Jan 6

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

Ashley Wyrick @ashley_wyrick · Jan 5

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

sibiz.eu/en/2015/07/16/… I’m a first generation Slovenian. My father emigrated when he was a child. Would love to see some YA stories around Slovenian myths and legends. #mswl #amquerying

#mswl YA novel with teen girl that is into kick ass fitness. CrossFit. Weight Lifting.

9/ #MSWL: Middle-grade and YA graphic novels about identity, particularly coming-of-age stories that explore relationships and friendships with emotional depth. Books like This One Summer, Real Friends, and American Born Chinese.

Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen · Jan 4

8/ #MSWL: High-stakes MG and YA contemp that feature breakers of tradition and characters who forge their own paths, as well as novels about identity and overcoming adversity. Wonderful books like I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter, Dear Martin, and The Stars Beneath Our Feet

Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen · Jan 4

7/ #MSWL: Deep contemporary YA! The gritty and dark variety as well as quirky and poignant novels. Books that deal with challenging subjects, mental health, and other important questions and ideas that affect teens, but ultimately offer hope. I.e. Jandy Nelson & Nina Lacour.

Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen · Jan 4

5/ #MSWL: Fast-paced, high-stakes YA fantasy, specifically with unique magic systems and fresh worldbuilding. I'm particularly attracted to lyrical prose, and recent YA favorites include Leigh Bardugo's King of Scars and Laini Taylor's Muse of Nightmares.
