Kerstin Wolf @Kerstin_WolfI've noticed that I don't have as many acquiring editorial assistants or assistant editors on my submission lists as I'd like.
If you are an acquiring EA or assistant editor, please like, comment, and share this post so that me and other agents can contact you! #WritingCommunity
Kiki Nguyen @kiananguUrban Legend is one of my favorite movies from childhood. I burned the shit out of our VHS. I would love an Urban Legend + The Craft YA or Adult Horror or Spec Fic. Make sure to queer it up, too! #mswl
And when you get the YA, can you please send it to me because #MSWL
✨ Comps cont.: ONE DAY AT A TIME, VAMPIRE ACADEMY, BLUE BLOODS, Diary of a Future President, Practical Magic, The Craft, Tortilla Soup, The Goonies
✨ Quinces or Sweet 16s?
✨ Honduran authors❗️
✨ Emp kids/goth kids/alt kids navigating middle & high school
Shelly Romero @_smromeroLast year, the PW salary survey reported that Latinx people only made up 3% in the industry.
As a Latina editor, I can use my acquiring power to buy and booze the stories of Latinx people. And this is how I can do my part for #DignidadLiteraria.
Agents, my MG & YA #MSWL is:
✨ Contemporary; slice of life; coming of age; LGBTQIA+; coming out stories
✨ Mysteries and adventures
✨ Paranormal/supernatural especially brujxs, witches, vampires, wolves
✨ Plays with tropes
✨ Comps to DON’T DATE ROSA SANTOS, LOVE SUGAR MAGIC
gigi @wiIIjemcan someone write a book where we get the pov of the hero and the villain, except since both of them believe they are doing the right thing there is no way to know who actually is the hero and who is the villain, so it is up to the readers to interpret who is who
YES! I’m still reeling from finishing the S&B trilogy and how the Darkling was one hell of a villain so yes #MSWL!!!
Lauren Spieller 📖 @laurenspiellerOKAY TWITTER. What's the new YA genre trend going to be? Let's decide now so we can all start drafting our dystopian-vampire-werewolf-super hero-space novellas and get 2020 off to a banging start.

Any kind. Any where. MG? YES. YA? YES. Just give me it. #MSWL
✨ Latinx MG & YA (contemporary; rom-coms)
✨ Vampires! Especially if by authors of color
✨ Atmospheric small-town settings with lots of (deadly) secrets
✨ Mixed format stories like THE KINGDOM, RULES FOR VANISHING, & ALL OF THIS IS TRUE
Carolina Ortiz @pushthepanoramaIn general though, any POC authors take on vampires, werewolves, sirens, witches, and any manner of myth/supernatural is always #MSWL for me
Spooky Shelly 🎃 @_smromeroNight 3: GINGER SNAPS, 2000
*1st time viewing
Ginger gets her first period and is attacked by some type of animal. So it’s up to her sister to help her out. Puberty can be a real bitch.
I haven’t stopped thinking about GINGER SNAPS since I watched it. Edgy, goth sisters. Werewolves. Halloween. I’d love to see a dark YA like this one day #mswl
