Agent friends, For what it's worth, I'm still reviewing submissions from my couch if you're still submitting! On the lookout esp for heartwarming, literary MG novels, particularly contemporary realistic, fantasy, and magical realism. Stay safe and healthy! #mswl

Just a reminder that I'm not accepting unagented mss at this time outside of conferences. Thank you for thinking of me though! #mswl

Erica Finkel @ericafinkel · 8 Feb 2017

YA non-fiction about sexuality and gender; YA magical realism and fantasy #mswl

Erica Finkel @ericafinkel · 8 Feb 2017

Poignant, bittersweet, literary MG about family, friendship, and strong girls. STEM and WNDB always a plus! #mswl

Erica Finkel @ericafinkel · 13 Sep 2016

Friendship stories that are funny and whip smart. dialogue and dynamics reminiscent of golden girls, Gilmore girls, broad city... #mswl

Erica Finkel @ericafinkel · 13 Sep 2016

YA fantasy like Graceling & Raven Boys, literary MG contemporary esp w/ girls, high-concept chapter book series, always diversity! #mswl

For MG: literary stand-alone realistic with a girl protagonist, coming-of-age, funny/smart/hopeful/sad. #mswl

Erica Finkel @ericafinkel · 30 Jun 2016

The next Graceling, YA as dense and weird as Grasshopper Jungle, romantic meets occult a la The Raven Cycle #mswl

Erica Finkel @ericafinkel · 19 Jan 2016

Words that DON'T catch my eye in submissions: horror, murder, thriller, pets, popularity. Not sure what that says about me... #mswl

Erica Finkel @ericafinkel · 15 Jan 2016

Words that catch my eye in submission pitches: road trip, seaside town, tarot, circus, summer. Just a l'il somethin' 'bout me! #mswl
