I always love strong cultural themes in the stories I look for -my college major was anthropology & I love learning abt other people's worldviews - elevating these fosters understanding, inclusion & acceptance. #MSWL #diversevoices #ownvoices

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 25 Oct 2019

The change of season has me hankering for a dark, twisty YA thriller or a chilling, atmospheric horror! Send me your goodies, writers! #MSWL #querytip #amquerying

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 13 May 2019

#YA Psychological thriller with a sociopath protagonist. Please. #MSWL #obsessed 📚🤞🏼

Reading queries this happy Saturday morning and realizing I am such a sucker for novels in verse. #agentlife #querytip #amquerying #MSWL

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 1 Feb 2019

VERY hungry for some new middle grade projects right now - send me your #MG mysteries, heartfelt contemporary, #ownvoices projects #amquerying writers! #MSWL Oh, and some dark stuff too. #horror #darkfantasy

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 17 Jan 2019

And last but definitely not least, I'd love a #YA #native #ownvoices story like KT client @RoanhorseBex 's. What an amazing story. #agencylove #MSWL

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 17 Jan 2019

And as much as I love the dark stuff, I equally adore a good #YA #romance and #MG or #YA #Humor! I love sharp wit and a good laugh. #MSWL

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 17 Jan 2019

Oh, and serial killers - I'd love a good #YA serial killer story! #MSWL

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 17 Jan 2019

I'd love a chilling #YA #Horror too - heavy atmosphere, heavy tension/anticipation. Scare me, please!! #MSWL #SouthernGothic

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 17 Jan 2019

I'm also still looking for a wildly original #MG #fantasy a la THE NIGHT GARDENER or the SERAPHINA series. #MSWL

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 17 Jan 2019

Hey all! I'm actively looking to sign a couple new clients in the New Year! Send me all your #ownvoices projects, especially those with strong cultural themes and immersive settings! #YA #MG #MSWL

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 2 Sep 2018

Now that I’m back open to queries here’s a bit of my #MSWL - YA near future Sci Fi, atmospheric Southern Gothic, and witches. All the witches. #MG #YA #diversevoices #ownvoices

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 21 Mar 2018

Just read a query that made me so hungry for more #voudou #NewOrleans #haiti #southerngothic - any sort of cultural element in that realm. PLEASE! #mswl #MG # YA

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 10 Feb 2018

Writers, please send me your #YA #magicalrealism projects! Was chatting with editors at #alamw18 today and that’s on their lists! #MSWL

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 7 Feb 2018

Very actively looking for culturally-rich, underrepresented #ownvoices authors/projects right now. Immersive, standout, strong writing. #MSWL #YA #MG #amwriting

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 20 Jan 2018

On the hunt for wildly original #MG #fantasy, #paranormal, #magicalrealism and #mystery. Think RULES FOR STEALING STARS, THE NIGHT GARDENER, WINTERHOUSE, SERAPHINA AND THE BLACK CLOAK. #MSWL

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 7 Jan 2018

Seeing lots of heartfelt #mg and #ya contemporary/realistic projects in the query inbox! Keep 'em coming! #querystats #amwriting #MSWL
