I'm a senior agent at Emerald City Literary Agency @EmeraldCityLit repping children's books (PB, MG, YA). Also a writer. Yes, it's hard. Repped by @renarossner

Pretty over it.

Honestly, I'd really like a realistic contemporary YA romcom or romance featuring BIPOC characters! Hit me up with something akin to Jenny Han or Sandhya Menon's books. #MSWL

Replying to @LindaEpstein

I probably don't need to say this, but I will: I want ALL THE QUEER THINGS™️in both #MG and #YA Realistic contemporary, historical, speculative fiction, light fantasy, light scifi, mystery, romance, etc... #MSWL

You know what I really want to see in my inbox when I'm open to submissions 11/1-12/15/19? Super romantic, swoon-worthy & humorous YA in all genres (well, not horror or thrillers). I'd particularly LOVE to see stories by #POC & always welcome the full spectrum of #LGBTQIA #MSWL

REMINDER: I'll be closed to queries after midnight EST October 31st. I'm currently open only to #YA by #ownvoices & #POC authors & I'm looking for realistic contemporary; magical realism; SciFi; speculative fiction; romantic; feminist; or Jewish. #mswl #WeNeedDiverseBooks

I updated my #mswl page to give a sense of what I've been reading for my own pleasure... go take a look! manuscriptwishlist.com

Some things I'd love to see come in to my inbox: How about a nice YA beach read? Something romantic & swoony without being sexist, misogynistic, stereotyping, etc... Something fun & funny & sexy! #ownvoices @POC #MSWL

Don't forget, even when everything feels like it's on fire, the world still needs your playful rom-com novels about kissing. <3 #MSWL

Yes! What he said! Cuz I heard: The world is on fire but we still need your (and we mean all of you!) playful rom-com novels about (all race/gender/sexual orientation/ability) teenagers kissing! #mswl (and I know that's what you meant @ericsmithrocks)
