technically closed to queries but aching for more submissions from Native / Indigenous authors, MG or YA, of course. send my way with “Native voice” in the subject line 💚💚 #mswl #amquerying

i want more diverse mg fantasy with secondary animal characters that steal my heart #mswl

I would also like to see some heart-achey MG contemporary that doesn’t shy away from big issues. Socially and politically engaged, with humor and joy and hope but also courage and realness and empathy. #MSWL

I want urban fantasy in MG too please! Series potential and big friend groups, family-focused, heartfelt—would love to fight some surprise tears reading a fun, sweeping adventure. #MSWL

For my MG, right now I really want magical adventure! Send me something fantastical and fun, with a great hook, and friendships that shine. Especially if there are any non-human magical characters incorporated in a fresh way. #MSWL

ICYMI, I’m open to queries! And last night, I requested my first full manuscript from slush at GZLA. These queries have been INCREDIBLE so far. Please keep them coming! For my #MSWL, check out this: bethphelan.com/wishlist

GIMME YOUR YA & MG!

I close to queries this Wednesday, but a #MSWL exception in MG and YA: Joy as resistance.

Creepy, strange, chilling (but not necessarily horror) for YA and MG. Like, really weird. #MSWL

Would love a bright, funny, contemporary YA or MG (that still makes you cry) with a Muslim lead and author. #mswl

Still loving weird MG and YA with strong grounded storytelling. #mswl
