If I distilled my research properly, then teens want contemporary YA with friendship stories and diverse protagonists, but de-emphazing "issue books." #MSWL

College YA is another area that has been brought up in my informal polling, @ReadWriteandMe also mentioned it. I wish that publishers were more open to it, but if you send me a great one, we may make it happen saleswise. My next #MSWL: College YA.

#MSWL: Currently, I am specifically looking for YA rom-coms, funny MG, adult suspense, and high concept Women's Fiction.

On the children's fiction side, I would love to see more contemporary YA fiction (the funnier the better), as well as graphic novels. No PBs for the time being. #MSWL

These are dark times. So for distraction & entertainment I need suspense to lose myself in, or stories that make me laugh and feel. So give me loads of suspense for mysteries, and rom coms with a twist for Women's Fiction, YA and MG. #MSWL

I'd love to see more contemporary YA and MG that makes me laugh, including, but not exclusively, rom-coms. Additionally, I would love retellings where the story is told with the former antagonist becoming the protagonist. #MSWL

I am still, and always, looking for smart, fun YA. I like it all: Rom coms, friendship stories, siblings stories. Well written and smart, make me laugh and cry. #MSWL.

I'm 27 pages in, & let me tell you: I've only known @laurenspieller as a FANTASTIC agent. Now, I get to know her as a writer, & she's got me hook, line, & sinker. My new #MSWL: Query me the kind of YA novel that Lauren would write. Go buy #YourDestinationIsOnTheLeft & learn how.

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 23 May 2018

A #MSWL from me: I would really LOVE to receive some really smart, funny Contemporary YA submissions. Books that make you laugh AND think. Along the lines of, i.e.: "I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE," or "WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI," or "THE LAKE EFFECT."

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 16 Aug 2017

Recently, I have become obsessed with graphic novels. I would love to receive queries for YA, and MG, graphic novels! #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 14 Mar 2017

I could really use some great nonfiction. I don't care if it's for YA, MG, PB, or Adult. #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 7 Jan 2017

Just send me a great YA or MG novel. What do I consider great? Caraval, Girl Defective, Wonder, Never Ever, Eleanor and Park. #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 19 Sep 2016

I would love a YA Fantasy novel derived from fairytales or folktales. #MSWL
