Two Lithuanian-themed submissions in the past week or so - what are the chances? I love it though. My father's side of the family emigrated from there in the early part of last century! #keepemcoming #alsoSwedish #MSWL #Lithuania

#MSWL Alert: For the YA audience please! This story is fascinating! Ching Shih ā€“ Pirate Lord shar.es/abs92R

#MSWL Alert: I'd love to see a #MG or #YA with a #climate or #environmental theme, speculative/near-future or contemporary. Bonus if it's #ownvoices from a writer of color or about an under-served community!

#MSWL Alert: I would love to get my hands on an atmospheric, #ownvoices, #Southerngothic. Give me mystery, dark magic, the bayou, Cajun/Creole culture.

#MSWL alert: I am VERY HUNGRY for middle grade projects right now! Fun MG mysteries, adventures, spooky paranormal, inventive fresh grounded fantasy, especially from folks from traditionally marginalized groups. #MG #paranormal #ownvoices #fantasy #mystery #adventure

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

Hilary Harwell @HilaryHarwell · Mar 28

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
