Just a reminder that I'm not accepting unagented mss at this time outside of conferences. Thank you for thinking of me though! #mswl

YA non-fiction about sexuality and gender; YA magical realism and fantasy #mswl

Poignant, bittersweet, literary MG about family, friendship, and strong girls. STEM and WNDB always a plus! #mswl

Erica Finkel @ericafinkel · 13 Sep 2016

Friendship stories that are funny and whip smart. dialogue and dynamics reminiscent of golden girls, Gilmore girls, broad city... #mswl

Erica Finkel @ericafinkel · 13 Sep 2016

YA fantasy like Graceling & Raven Boys, literary MG contemporary esp w/ girls, high-concept chapter book series, always diversity! #mswl

For MG: literary stand-alone realistic with a girl protagonist, coming-of-age, funny/smart/hopeful/sad. #mswl

The next Graceling, YA as dense and weird as Grasshopper Jungle, romantic meets occult a la The Raven Cycle #mswl

Words that DON'T catch my eye in submissions: horror, murder, thriller, pets, popularity. Not sure what that says about me... #mswl
