Caitlin White @caitforestellI’m opening now for the last two weeks in August ONLY for writers traditionally marginalized from publishing, including (but not limited to), BIPOC and LGBTQ+ writers and those with a chronic illness or disability. You don’t have to disclose how you fit… (1/2) #amquerying #mswl
…and you don’t have to submit only work that mirrors your identity (though I’d love to see that too!) but please respect this space. I’m only open to #YA and #MG. Please query me here: QueryManager.com/caitlinwhite
I am open to #MG but fair warning, I am quite picky in this category. Voice for MG is very difficult (congrats to those who are great at it! *ahem* @vickithewriter) and it's almost always the reason I pass. #MSWL #amquerying
Caitlin White @caitforestellTo writers who submitted before I closed last time: I still have a handful of outstanding full manuscripts that I am reading, and I will be getting back to everyone soon! Thank you for your patience and understanding through a busy fall and holiday season.
And to help #amquerying writers, here's some of my #mswl in a thread.
ALWAYS looking to partner with and support writers of color, writers who live with disabilities (me too!), neurodiverse writers, and otherwise underserved and underrepresented authors in #YA and #MG.
Hello #amquerying and #amwriting writers! I am open to queries again starting right now! I only accept #YA and #MG fiction at this time. You can submit to me here with your query letter and first 10 pages: QueryManager.com/caitlinwhite
If you need any help, please DM me!
The continuing US-Canada border closure has me feeling wicked homesick -- especially in the summer. If you have contemporary #YA or #MG set on the Cape, Nantucket (though Martha's Vineyard is good too! #nottakingsides), or even the South Shore of MA, pls send to me! #MSWL
Only #YA and #MG. Whodunit mysteries like Truly Devious (riddles!). Closed door thrillers/mysteries. Witchy stories like Undead Girl Gang and The Craft, grounded in the real world. #mswl
Always looking for BIPOC writers!
If you have it and I miss it, please send anyway!
Contemporary WITCHES and covens. #YA and #MG, but keep it grounded in this world—think: The Craft or Practical Magic. I'm also on board with other #magicalrealism in styles of Laura Ruby, Anna-Marie McLemore, Emily X.R. Pan, Katrina Leno, Ibi Zoboi's American Street #MSWL
I've been an Agatha Christie obsessive since my blessed 6th grade teacher gave me "And Then There Were None," so PLEASE send me all your #YA and #MG Agatha-inspired #whodunnits like #trulydevious and the movie #knivesout. #MSWL
Caitlin White @caitforestellSO EXCITED to announce that I'm now open to queries at @EmeraldCityLit & will represent #YA and #MG fiction projects alongside agents @MandyHubbard and @LindaEpstein. I'm so grateful to them both for being such incredible mentors. #amquerying submit here:
To get an idea of what I'm looking for from #amquerying writers, check out this #MSWL thread I'll be updating throughout the day. #YA & #MG #fiction only. To start, I absolutely would love to see submissions by BIPoC and LGBTQ+ authors and writers with disabilities. #mswl
