If your YA could be described as "fluff" by "serious" non-YA readers, query me! #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 12 Sep 2018

If the protagonist in your YA has weird-ass enthusiasms, I want to read about them #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 12 Sep 2018

If you writing haunting, lyrical YA or adult SFF, I also want to see it. #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 22 Feb 2018

I want YA with NB protagonists. I want to see the whole LGBTQ+ spectrum normalized and represented. #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 22 Feb 2018

I want YA that gives equal weight to "small" things (friends, grades, etc) and "big" things (bringing justice to the world). It's all connected! #MSWL

One week from today, I open back up to queries. I figured now would be a good time to go through my #MSWL!

The Chocolate War posed the question "Do I dare disturb the universe?" I want a book that barrels right past that question and into HOW. Give me YA where teens are changing the world #MSWL

I love luscious, lyrical writing in YA--think Stiefvater, Black, and more. #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 12 Sep 2017

YA that has a romance but the two don't end up together in the end. Give me hopeful instead of an HEA #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 12 Sep 2017

YA where the parents are like, real characters. Not dead. Not absent. But there and actually parents #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 12 Sep 2017

I want MG and YA (not exclusively though) w/ charas of color who aren't just white kids with a tan in terms of how they see the world #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 12 Sep 2017

YA and MG horror. Scare the beejesus out of me #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 12 Sep 2017

Uproariously funny YA that also breaks my heart #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 12 Sep 2017

Contemporary YA witch family that doesn't take place in Salem #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 23 Apr 2017

#MSWL YA comedy mirroring Harold&Kumar where two teens go on an epic roadtrip for plan B (bc there's no easy access). Feelings and fun occur

Laura Zats @LZats · 26 Mar 2017

#mswl YA or adult romance about a hiplet dancer

Laura Zats @LZats · 15 Mar 2017

New desperate #MSWL: A YA or adult romantic comedy of errors set at an SFF convention.

Laura Zats @LZats · 8 Feb 2017

Do you have historical YA, romance, or SFF? Is it set in a place/time not often written about? #MSWL
