Hannah VanVels Ausbury ❄️⛄️
In Adult, I'd love to see:
⚡️Queer rom coms
⚡️ Contemporary stories of people navigating the start of professional life
⚡️ Gothic, witchy horror
In YA, I'd love to see:
👑 Queer rom coms
👑 Contemporary friendship stories
👑 Thrillers with isolated settings
👑 Horror with gothic and atmospheric vibes
👑 Historical that centers on POC stories
In Middle Grade, I'd love to see:
🧢Fantasy inspired by myths, folklore, or legends—especially if it's not European
🧢Historical that centers POC stories
🧢Contemporary with an environmental bent
🧢Horror with ghosts, creepy crawlies, and witches
🧢 Earth-based sci-fi
In Picture Books, I'd love to see:
🍎Family traditions and how they shape us
🍎Silly and fun wordplay
🍎Poetic, lyrical books that show emotional resilience
🍎Biographies and nonfiction focusing on people and eras that have been historically overlooked
First and foremost, I'm building an inclusive list with a variety of voices and genres. I'm looking for BIPOC authors, queer authors, disabled authors, and generally, authors from historically excluded backgrounds.
Time for an updated #MSWL post! 🌟

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.
