Emery Lee @EmeryLeeWhoToday's a good day to add that if you are a trans femme/trans woman with a completed YA manuscript in need of a #PitchWars mentor, I'd love to hear from you!
(I mean, all trans people welcome, but I'd especially love to see more trans femmes/trans women in trad pubbed YA)
I would love to work with trans femmes / trans women authors. Consider this call an exception to my closed submissions. #mswl
i am still closed and catching up on lots of reading, but.... if you have a YA or MG with monsters rooted in underrepresented mythologies/cultures/folklore/history (#ownvoices only please)... well, i'd like to see that. can be fantasy or contemporary! #mswl
as i said, i am very much behind on queries/reading, but as i think this might be a long shot and it's super on my mind right now, i'm gonna put it out into the universe:
#mswl for #ownvoices BIPOC BPD YA 💚
ray stoeve @raystoeveSeconded.
subject line: Get your act together please twitter.com/Shekels_Librar…
Would def love to see more trans women in my query inbox please #mswl we should be doing better
beth phelan, here sometimes @beth_phelanI wanna troll @petejknapp by slapping my own mswl tag on his wishlist tweets 🤔😜
in seriousness, would love
-larger-than-life narrative voice
-MG fantasy series
-YA after high school about teens not going to college
-something that feels like a bottle episode
anxiety has been making it hard to focus very well, but i will say that in addition to the rest of my #MSWL i am also highly motivated to read more LOL MG fantasy adventure. have a few fantastic mss in my queue and would add some more… :)
Dana Chidiac @chidiaqianYA about moving on from high school! Anything about college admissions, the summer after senior year, freshman year of college (or of life) #mswl
I’d also love books with teens who elect not to go to college at all #mswl
Happy 2020! I’m back open to queries!! Send me...
LOL fantasy, contemporary tackling big topics, queer madcap ensemble adventures!
Weird crimes/myths, underdog fantasy, dark paranormal, experimental shit!

beth phelan (hiatus &closed to unsolicited subs) @beth_phelanwhen i updated my website, i also updated my wishlist! please bookmark this for the new year, when i finally, at long last, reopen to queries! #mswl #amquerying #querytip
i will add that top of my #MSWL is: laughing. i don't mean chuckling. i mean i want to LOL. more so with voice than silliness but i'd love to see more of it in general in my submissions. :)

Catching up on subs and i notice i have excellent YA here, but not much MG! #mswl WHEN I REOPEN: I really want to work on more MG! Commercial or literary—give me your big series hooks, magic, light and fun contemporary, hopeful stories touching on tough topics, queer characters!!
Shenwei (they/them) 張軒瑋 @theshennersthe discussion about the lack of upper MG & lower YA has me thinking about how little I see experiences like my middle school days in fiction...
when I was13-14 most ppl were not sexually active but ppl were absolutely making sex jokes and I feel like MG mostly sanitizes that
I would really like to see if we can fill this gap so if anyone has anything with protagonists 13 or 14, especially contemporary realistic, send it to me with “#gap #mswl” as the subject line... especially looking at you marginalized writers!
if anyone has a MG or YA with a PROTAGONIST who has ADHD, i'd love to see it. in particular, a type that isn't the more commonly associated hyperactive but features the inattentiveness, procrastination, disorganized thoughts, etc. would be open to realistic or fantasy #MSWL
