Linda Epstein @LindaEpsteinWhat I'd love to see in my inbox: #YA #romcom by #BIPOC authors. I like realistic contemporaries but could be open to other genres, if done well. Queer, straight, whatever. Send me your swoon-worthy love stories. #mswl
I seem to have forgotten to close my inbox to queries, as I'd intended to. As such, I'm staying open until the end of the month. Hit me up, peeps! Check out my #MSWL and/or this thread.
Linda Epstein @LindaEpsteinGot a rejection of and offer for the same book, within 5 minutes of each other today. I've said it before, authors, it only takes one. Rejections aren't personal. The game is trying to find the right match.
Whoa. This tweet’s getting a lot of love. Reminder: I’ll only be open to queries until February 15th. Looking for YA & MG ms, especially those written by Black authors & other POC, and LGBTQIA+ folx. Please see my #MSWL threads for the right kind of stories to query me with.
Reminder that I will only be open to queries for 3 more weeks. I'm looking for Young Adult and Middle Grade manuscripts, especially those written by Black authors and other POC, as well as LGBTQIA+ folx. Please check out my #MSWL threads for the right kind of stories to send me.
You know what I love? A ticking clock. Think @rlynn_solomon's Today, Tonight, Tomorrow or @loversdiction's Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist or @NicolaYoon's The Sun is Also a Star. Give me 24 high stakes hours! #MSWL
Please DO NOT send me pandemic stories or virus stories or stories about illness. I know these might be important but I'm taking care of my mental health and not reading those kind of stories right now so I'd just be the wrong agent for that. #mswl
I'm THE RIGHT agent for stories about friendship, 1st love, sex-positive teen relationships, anything art related (but especially a heist!), fighting climate change, navigating social injustice, food nerds, theatre nerds, Star Trek nerds, math nerds, nerds in general. #mswl
I am THE WRONG agent for stories about sports, the Holocaust, anything murdery or scary, most talking animals, cults, Christmas, zombies, historical fiction about war, or Jewish stories told by non-Jewish people. #mswl

Laura LeeLun @laleelunWhy has no one written a "Christmas" rom-com about a lonely Jewish widow and the Chinese restaurant owner who serves her every year but is too shy to reveal his feelings?

I love finding out about cultural/ethnic/racial diversity in Judaism but feel so ripped off I didn’t always know the diversity of my own people. I want to change that for today’s Jewish (& nonJewish) children & teens. Please query me with your diverse Jewish MG & YA novels! #MSWL
Find me a Black Jewish MG or YA! Please! Maybe a romcom or a mystery or a love story? Preferably not about anti-Semitism and definitely not about the Holocaust or WW2. Something substantive and joyful! (And I’m ok w/not substantive, just pure fun, too!) #MSWL
Lauren James @Lauren_E_JamesVery excited to announce that I'm launching the Climate Fiction Writers League: a group of 50+ authors writing about climate change!
