Oh! #mswl if it’s YA!
I LOVE retellings of stories but not so keen on a classic or fairy tale or Shakespeare or Bible story or whatever being retold in a contemporary setting. I know that's a thing. It's just not MY thing. #MSWL
IF you send me a Jewish holiday book, make sure your story brings something new and different to the topic, a new angle, a new POV, a different way of seeing it or talking about it or telling the story. #MSWL
I would jump through hoops for submissions by Jewish #BIPOC authors, for picture books, chapter books, middle grade and YA. I'd love joyful stories, romances, fantasies, quirky and funny, and... whatcha got? #MSWL #writingcommunity
I'm especially on the lookout for stories from historically marginalized communities (but no trauma). For biographies let me see inventors, doctors, scientists! I love fantasy & romance & mysteries. Gimme all the #BIPOC, queer, religious, disabled characters doing awesome stuff!
Opening to queries for the month of May! I'll be looking for picture books, chapter books, middle grade, & YA novels. Please look at my previous #MSWL so you can query smartly. I'll repeat some of what I'm looking for here & will be adding to this thread over the next week.
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
