Amy Giuffrida Is Closed To Queries
Literary Agent @belcastr & wrangler of #TheATeam Lover of books, reality TV, Buffy, coffee, rescue dogs, and tattoos. 💀 My opinions are my own. She/her.
My middle grade list is fairly full, so I am only looking for: magical realism, contemporary, or mystery series (or with series possibility).
Now for some fun! A #MSWL 🧵
Let's start with MG and YA...
Other than YA Fantasy...I will be completely open to every genre in MG and YA for 2022!
**Fantasy writers...I do make special requests during pitch contests so keep an eye out for me lurking. Lol.
This week has felt like a year, so please send me some fun contemporary! Give me all the MG and YA goofiness that makes me giggle and gives me all the feels. I’m ready to open my inbox and smile🥰 #MSWL
Last but not least...I don’t normally open for science fiction, but I’m really looking for something in the MG or YA space to knock my socks off. I don’t want anything set in space or with ships. I’ll keep my inbox open to this genre open until the end of February.
Thrillers! MG, YA, or adult. I want to sit on the edge of my seat. I want to question the narrator. If you have something like The Flight Attendant or You, then send away.
I’m jonesing for something unique in MG and YA—think lyrical voice or a unique format.
Amy Giuffrida @kissedbyinkDare I post this?? Now that my inbox is back to a manageable level, I have some things I’m really in the mood to read. #MSWL a thread... pic.twitter.com/bxafODtmyp
I am a complete sucker for teens who are activists. If you have a MG or YA where the kids engage in their community to invoke change, I’d love to see it.
Amy Giuffrida OPENING TO QUERIES IN 1 DAY!! @kissedbyinkTo end the countdown on the eve of reopening to queries...here are a few other things on my #MSWL
1. YA and MG mystery. I’d especially love to see a gritty twist on The Hardy Boys or a group of friends in the vein of Scooby Doo.
Happy Wednesday! Horror is a HUGE want for my #MSWL when I reopen tomorrow. I am searching for smart, spooky, atmospheric stories in MG, YA, and adult.
I love relationships that grow stronger over time, so having a YA or MG story along the lines of Schitt’s Creek would blow my mind!
Time for my Tuesday #MSWL focused on...contemporary. In YA and MG I am always searching for strong characters that fight to change the world. Give me a teen/group of teens staging a protest and making things happen with their voices. #amagenting
In MG—yes there can be romance in MG—I really want that sweet and innocent first crush, first kiss, first hand holding. I want the feels to wrap around me like a warm blanket.

Middle Grade #MSWL right here! The joy on all faces makes me soooooo happy!
#MSWL I am actively looking for YA or MG horror novels that are campy and full of tropes.
