Seeing some great #MSWL tweets today from agents I admire. In that spirit, I'd love to share some of mine!

- MG or YA fiction with a character who might become AOC-- that spirit, that drive, that persistence would make for a great story!
- always looking for funny

I’ve been seeing lots of interesting requests on the timeline for different types of Jewish stories. I’d love to see all of them. Including maybe a story set in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood. Sometimes religion isn’t the reason the fish is out of water. #mswl

I. Want. An. Influencer. Book.

Either NF about the dirty secrets of influencer culture or realistic fiction of the same. #MSWL

We need an American Meme- style NF book. #MSWL

Has anyone done a book version of 90 Day Fiancé? Asking for me. #MSWL

Dear #MSWL universe, I want MG as good and heartfelt and eye opening as FRONT DESK.

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 2 Oct 2018

#MSWL for commercial romance in start up culture. Or really any genre book based in start up culture.

MG or YA about a kid with an unusual hobby or interest. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 12 Sep 2018

What about a YA novel involving enmeshment and helicopter parenting? The good and the bad. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 12 Sep 2018

I’m in the market for some LGBTQ MG with an honest and true voice. #mswl

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 12 Sep 2018

I want hooky adult commercial romance so, so much (THE HATING GAME, THE WEDDING DATE, etc.) If it’s body inclusive, even better! #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 22 Aug 2018

Hi friends, I am in need of some LGBTQ+ MG. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 10 Aug 2018

I want a high concept, approachable rom-com so bad I can hardly stand it. #MSWL
