I feel like I haven't stated this outright so if you have a polyamorous relationship in YA or YA with crossover potential, I'd LOVE to see it.

The more queer it is, the better.

Anne Tibbets @AnneTibbets

I have finished The Queen's Gambit and I am bereft I cannot watch it again for the first time.

This was easily one of my favorite shows of the year and if you have any project like this in the YA or YA crossover space, I am HERE for it.

Countdown #MSWL Day 5:

Stories with quieter/more personal stakes are my jam. I'm a sucker for getting lost in a character as they try to figure things out with themselves or those around them.

Also if you have a friendship breakup story please send that my way!!!!

Countdown #MSWL Day 4:

I love an ensemble cast. Whether they're solving a mystery, fighting off an enemy, or navigating their lives, these dynamics are huge for me.

I especially love seeing how every member of a group interacts/is affected by the other.

Latinx kidlit authors, please query me! I would love to see magical realism, stories around family dynamics, fantasies steeped in mythology.

Give me everything 😍

Countdown #MSWL Day 2:

Queer rep for days especially by authors of color.

I'd love a rom-com, a story that follows queer teens having to stick together, and stories where queer characters get a happy ending.

Megan Manzano ~ Reopening to Queries 10/05 @Megan_Manzano

Since I'll be reopening to queries on 10/05, here is my official manuscript wishlist that has been updated!

manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/mega…

However I did promise a thread of what I'm looking for so here we go!

Countdown #MSWL Day 1:
My list does skew towards YA so I'd love MG everything!

Particuarly stories that begin to explore identity and sexuality. Especially with first crushes.

I'll be offended if I don't get a queer romcom in my box when I reopen.

Even more so if it's best friends to lovers!!!
