Lauren Is Closed To Unsolicited Queries
Foyinsi @OyinAtiOmiI still have not found my FLUFFY, YEARNING AND TENSION-FILLED, LIGHTHEARTED YA contemporary romance 🥺🥺🥺.
PLEASE LET THIS BE THE YEAR😭😭#mswl pic.twitter.com/n34NlrAp1W
Who will write this for us?! #mswl
Writers! I am craving adult books. Send me your contemporary romance + romcoms, your suspense and thrillers, your horror + SFF, and your non-fic as long as it has a platform! I’m also very interested in reading genre bending books, so send those too! #mswl
Kiara 👉🏾#ACAB @dezinpubMSWL: I really want a contemporary vampire graphic novel pitch with queer POC characters. 😭✨
Omg yes 👀 #mswl
4. LatinX representation in kidlit- all ages, all genres, though I am particularly interested in finding a YA contemp & a MG fantasy! A few favorites: @LauraTNamey, @Nina_Writes, @acevedowrites, @djolder, and @CeliaCPerez. (You should be reading *all* of them!)
Stephanie Stein @stephlysteinI turned 30 (!!!) last weekend, an occasion I'm seizing to share my #MSWL this year:
- sweeping YA romance
- ✨queer magic✨
- savvy, commercial MG fantasy
- joyful queer & POC stories
- & POC authors with something to say
- emotional contemporary MG
- cozy af graphic novels
Please send me your contemporary fantasy (all ages!), especially if it has scary elements. Hauntings, body horror, dark magic, whatever! I wants it. #mswl
Contemporary, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Magical Realism, Horror, Historical, and everything in between.
I want it all.

Nivia Evans @NiviaEvans#MSWL Potions! Apothecaries, hedge witches, the lady down the road that makes a mean red sauce that will steal your man. Secondary world, contemporary...idc, make it happen.
okay can i just steal Nivia's entire #MSWL orrr....?
This is the most obvious #MSWL ever, but...
I want books like To All The Boys I've Loved Before, in YA and Adult. This means:
--family B plots
Let's do this!
Lauren [closed to queries in August] @laurenspiellerthat might not seem like a ton, but when you consider how many genres I represent across multiple age categories, it is a LOT
When I open to queries again in September, I hope to continue receiving YA Fantasy (because I love it) but I also hope I see more
☻ Middle Grade Fantasy
☻ YA Contemporary
☻ Adult SFF
☻ Adult Psych Thrillers
I'm also looking for upmarket YA Fantasy. I'm a sucker for thoughtful and elegant prose, and deep (not wide) worldbuilding that feels effortless despite it's intricacies. Contemp fantasy, second world fantasy, whatever--it's all great, as long as it sweeps me away. #mswl
