#MSWL Lightning Round:

--MG with a unique hook and a focus on friendship

--f/f YA that explores the lines between friendship and romance

--Adult psychological thriller that *isn't* about a woman who might be crazy/imagining the whole thing

--Adult SFF that makes me cry

In anticipation of reopening to queries on *1/15/19*, I've updated my #MSWL, and added a new wishlist item: MG graphic novels!…

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · 27 Nov 2018

Only a few days left till I close for queries. I'd love to see more MG and Adult submissions before I do!! #mswl #dvpit

I'd love to find a MG featuring a boy who has interests stereotypically associated with girls. Dancing, cooking, singing, etc. #mswl

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · 3 Oct 2018

Male POV for #mg & #ya, especially in contemporary stories! #mswl

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · 12 Sep 2018

A few uber specific #mswl requests:

-middle grade set in CA
-MG/YA featuring Jewish characters (whether they are religious is up to you)
-a book about NASA space camp
-characters with weird jobs or hobbies
-realistic, sex-positive YA
-international thriller with a female MC

#MSWL I’d like to see a MG or YA featuring a family that reminds me of the Weasleys ❤️

Lauren [closed to queries in August] @laurenspieller

that 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'd also love to see more MG Contemporary that showcases friendships, in particular m/f in which a crush isn't part of the plot. #mswl

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · 23 May 2018

I would love to see more MG submissions in my inbox. Realistic, historical, magical, scientific, adventurous--whatever you've got, I want to see it! #mswl

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · 7 Mar 2018

I would love to see more SFF MG and contemporary YA in my inbox. #MSWL

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · 3 Mar 2018

I'd like a non-white, dark fairy tale for MG or YA. #mswl

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · 27 Feb 2018

I'd like a MG Fantasy that features lesser-known creatures of myth and legend (be that because they don't figure as prominently in mythology, or because they are from traditions ignored by the European-centric literary canon). #mswl

I would really love to find an exciting, middle grade adventure/ fantasy set somewhere other than the US or Europe.

Great example: THE SERPENT'S SECRET by @Sayantani16
