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

Something I want to see in my inbox: a YA romcom set in space; even better if the main character is BIPOC and extra points if it's LGBTQ+ too! Not too sciencey & not fantasy or characters w/superpowers (other than being smarty pants and/or physically fit). #MSWL

I am particularly looking for realistic contemporary and romcom #YA from #POC. I want love stories (straight & not); sister or brother stories; stories about finding oneself or finding a best friend. I want to really feel the setting, too. #MSWL

BTW big #MSWL, in case you all don’t already know this, please send me all your #MiddleGrade and #youngadult #JewishKidLit manuscripts! Particularly interested in anything #queer #fantasy #scifi #romcom #mystery

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)
