Seeing lots of empath protagonists in the slush pile these days. And I am liking this trend. #weneedmoresensitivity #MSWL

#MSWL - Spooky #MG, MG #Horror, #dark MG fantasy - think THE NIGHT GARDENER, SERAFINA, THE CIRCUS OF STOLEN DREAMS - #amquerying folks!

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · Apr 22

Hey #DVPit folks- just a reminder - if I miss your pitch and you think we'd be a good fit, please query! I'm especially hungry for #YA #mystery, #horror, #thriller, #romcom and #MG #horror #humor #graphicnovel right now! #MSWL

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · Apr 15

#MSWL alert! I'd love to see #mg stories of how kids are forming friendships in the time of social distancing! #graphicnovel would be a plus! #covid #amquerying #amwriting

Reading queries this Saturday morning. Realized I'd LOVE to see a #YA or #MG #tarot themed story in my inbox! #MSWL #Tarotcards #TarotReading #Southerngothic #NoLA setting would be a plus!

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · Feb 25

Loving all these #horror submissions in my #slushpile!! #MG #YA #MSWL Bring em on #amquerying writers!

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · Feb 19

Update to my #MSWL - #ownvoices atmospheric #horror please for #YA and #MG! I'd love a fresh take on the usual tropes!

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · 25 Oct 2019

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 šŸ“ššŸ¤žšŸ¼

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
