Really hungry for some funny, heartfelt, non-issue-heavy MG, with great family relationships. My list has nothing but room for MG. #mswl

Okee dokee. Just made some updates to my #MSWL page. https://t.co/VeBv5C2LXG

As always, I try not to do “grocery list” style wishes. Broader scope in terms of story and style. #MSWL

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · 3w

I’m always up for epic romances and princesses, but I need some new spins on the theme. #mswl

Can I anti #mswl ? I decidedly do NOT want anymore books that open around the death of the MC’s mom, dad, brother, sister, or best friend.

do not try to stop them https://t.co/uKbsjjBdiP

A few days late—and this should go without saying—but…please dear lord: #MSWL https://t.co/Lss408Yzqb

My #MSWL in a nutshell: The world sucks right now. Get me out of it.

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · Feb 8

I’m a fan of both faith and science. Kidlit novels that do more with that would be welcome. Hold the sanctimony though. #MSWL

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · Feb 8

Tip: I have more room on my list for MG than YA right now. Diverse, plot-driven, imaginative, high-concept, heartfelt. Hit me. #MSWL

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · Feb 8

I’m looking for books that are big on: imagination, escapism, other-worldiness, nerdy inspiration, high emotional stakes. #MSWL

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · Feb 8

I am actively diversifying my list. So #ownvoices & #wndb are priorities for everything I just mentioned. #MSWL

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · Feb 8

I am also looking for non-fiction for MG/YA! Narrative NF, memoir, or just intriguing topics that kids can see themselves in. #MSWL

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · Feb 8

For MG/YA, I’m looking for high-concept or commercial-leaning fiction. Good plots and good twists. Not picky on genre (but NO horror). #MSWL

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · Feb 8

And finally, if you see something that adds to me to your querying list, here’s how to submit to me: https://t.co/XDDqYhja6y #MSWL

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · Feb 8

Also, I try to keep my #MSWL posts thematically broad, and not grocery list items. So you don’t have to check boxes with me.

Man, I’d love a picture book with paper-cutting art. #mswl

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · Jan 5

Everything is “epic” and “sweeping.” Can we go back to leaner and tighter plots? Just a little? Hmm? #querytip #MSWL

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · Nov 11

The query pile has been dead quiet this week. Time to get back up, everyone. Diverse kids’ books please! #wndb #ownvoices #mswl

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · Sep 13

I really don't have enough magic or magical realism on my list right now. MG or YA. But I don't want witchy-magic. #MSWL

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · Sep 13

Bonus: narrative non-fiction would be such a great opportunity for #ownvoices #WeNeedDiverseBooks . Hit me with them. #MSWL

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · Sep 13

Where is the narrative non-fiction/ memoir for teens? It’s so open: compelling personal narratives that are relevant to kids today. #mswl
