Lauren’s The Worst (preorder Now💁🏻♀️)
I'm also still looking for the perfect YA Sci-Fi. Maybe it's a space opera, but it's set in the near future on earth. Maybe it's about weapons, maybe it's about cyber warfare. Whatever it is, I'm looking for a distinct VOICE. #mswl
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
In YA, I'm craving a high concept contemporary--that means you can pitch in easily b/c it has a HOOK. I love weird jobs, enemies to lovers, unique living situations, and high stakes. #mswl
Lauren's book is ON SHELVES! @laurenspiellerI'm closing to queries on 8/1/18, so here's a quick run down of my top #mswl items. Please keep in mind: 1) these are my priorities right now, but I'm still considering projects in other categories, & 2) I will re-open to queries on 9/1 so don't hurry! Good > Fast.
Here we go!
I would love to see more Middle Grade in general, but I am particularly excited about contemporary fantasy (fantasy set in our world) and stories inspired by non-western cultures. #mswl
Brooks Sherman @byobrooksHi all, after walking around NOLA with @runwithskizzers and refreshing my memory about the infamous Casket Girls (look them up!), I’m officially putting it out there that I would love love LOVE a YA novel that is a vampire version of The Craft. #mswl 😱💀🌙

Chelsey Emmelhainz @CKEmmelhainzI'm reading Circe by Madeline Miller right now and loving the hell out of it. Witches and gods and monsters and mortals... Feminist retellings of classic mythology is the BEST genre. Yeah, I just made it a genre of it's own. And every bookstore should have a section for it.
Let’s do this 👇🏽 #mswl
Nivia Evans @NiviaEvansI'm in the mood for an inventive, female-led magic school story, but from the teacher's POV. Please and thank you. #mswl
Omg why have I never thought of this? Please someone write it for me! #mswl
Adult Contemporary/Romance Writers! I would like to sign a project that reads like Bridget Jones/Crazy Rich Asians/The Hating GAme--funny, fast paced, and clued in to social questions. #MSWL
