Naomi Davis, Literary Agent (she/they)
#MSWL in all the contemporary YA (or MG) I read, I like to see boys being feminists and practicing healthy relationships and consent. ALWAYS queer-positive. I'd also love to see a #nonfiction proposal talking directly to boys about feminism and consent.
Adult historical fantasy (show me a location or pivotal moment in history I've never seen in SFF)
Contemporary YA (show me how powerful& combustible teenage relationships are)
Middle grade sci fi, contemporary, or fantasy (I'm pretty wide open; nothing is off the table!) #mswl
Toni Rhodes @rhodestonib@NaomisLitPix Are u looking for kidlit?
Yes, certain genres! MG fantasy and contemp, YA contemp, and picture books with certain themes on my #MSWL
I am open to select Middle Grade projects - fantasy and contemporary. I want to see really unique characters from backgrounds less-often explored in MG. I definitely want to see LGBTQ+ protags and families, other unexpected family structures, & mental health conversations. #MSWL

#MSWL Adult and YA fantasy, sci fi, romance. Picture books featuring diversity, food, or fun word play. Middle grade based on unique mythologies, and always, diversity across all spectrums including LGBTQ, authors/characters of color, and neurodiversity. Queryme.online/naomidavis
Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix-And a shoutout to siblings, family members, & support people of non-NT people. I know how much you care, how deeply you love, how powerfully you advocate and support.
And #MSWL: #ownvoices middle grade stories about non-neurotypical life in middle school, because I can only imagine what navigating those halls is like for my oldest child, and wish his peers had more empathy than judgment when witnessing his distress.
#MSWL I am in need of more Middle Grade MG queries in my QueryManager! Send me ridiculous, send me adventure, send me fantasy, send me LGBTQ+ protags and family dynamics, BFFs and boisterous ensembles, stories with purpose, depth, and humor! #querytip #amquerying #amwriting
