Hannah VanVels 🪴🌙 @hannahvanvelsGood morning, #amquerying #amwriting community!
PitMad may be over. There were almost half a million pitches, which is an overwhelming turnout! Because of that, I know I 💯 missed some things.
Query me anyways!
I'm particularly eager to build up my MG and Adult lists, but I can't resist a good PB or YA.
I'm perennially on the lookout for BIPOC, LGBT, and Neurodiverse creators in all categories.

Lane @lanewriteswordsI am begging for more books set in college and graduate school. And not just academia or dark academia. I want twenty-somethings keekeeing on the quad trying to coordinate costumes for a Halloweekend bar hop.
Kaitlyn Johnson @RedPenKaitlynCheck out the @belcastr team's 2021 wishlist!!! #amagenting #querytip #amquerying
Hannah VanVels 🪴🌙 @hannahvanvelsI have watched all of WandaVision in one day, and I. Need. More. #WandaVision
If your WIP pairs a fun, wholesome, brightness with something dark and sinister bubbling below the surface, I want it. #mswl
Sara Schonfeld @SaraSchonNext year is the 100th anniversary of the discovery of King Tut. Really hungry for an #ownvoices kid archaeologist MG—bonus points for critique of how museums often steal artifacts! #mswl
Last night I had a dream where I was raving over the phone to a random writer about the sci fi market and how historically marginalized groups are underrepresented in the genre but Andy Weir can write like the same book twice?
So anyway, send me your sci fi.
ray stoeve (they/them) @raystoeveDo you like data on trans ownvoices YA fiction?? Well, have I got the blog post for you!! I broke down some of the info from my ownvoices masterlist to see how the indies and the Big 5 are doing.

Shout out and huge thank you to Ray for their amazing research here!
We need more trans stories!
When I reopen to queries, I'd love to see your trans stories in any age range and genre, please!

JackieWrites @JackieKhaliliehIs there room for young ya (protagonists who are 14 & 15)? I hear there’s a gap....then why aren’t we filling it? This is such a great age to write for and read about. #YoungYA #askagent #ownvoices
Yes, and this is a giant #mswl for me!!
Tamar Rydzinski @trydzinski#MSWL a MG adventure featuring a kid and his/her/their dog. Can be fantasy or not, but I want the friendship between child and canine to be front and center
Seconded! This is a big #MSWL for me too! Love stories of friendship between human and animal.
*snuggles own canine best friend close*
Hello 👋 I have some professional news!
Today is my first day as an agent with @belcastr and I am OPEN to queries! I’m on the hunt for diverse and inclusive kid lit projects and a few adult genres as well!
You can query me at: querymanager.com/query/HannahVa…
