I’d love to acquire a fun, contemporary #YA rom-com that will appeal to fans of Jenny Han and Morgan Matson (for the age 12 and up crowd). *Agented submissions only, please! #MSWL #Youngteen

Would love a voice-driven contemporary #YA rom com (frenemies to lovers, anyone?) #MSWL

Agents—My new year’s resolution is to acquire a voice-driven #MG (I like contemporary and magical realism!) #MSWL

It’s #MSWL day! Agents—I’m desperate to see more #MG in my inbox! Looking for voice-driven contemporary and magical realism like #Rooftoppers and historical like #TheWarThatSavedMyLife and #BostonJane Also open to a fun fantasy—looking for the next #EllaEnchanted!
