I'm also all about epic, sweeping fantasies. I'd love to see thoughtfully built, fresh-feeling worlds (bonus points if they contain rich magic systems), inhabited by complex characters. And I'm always excited to see fantasy from diverse voices! #MSWL

MG and YA with Jewish characters (from any subset of Judaism), in any genre! I feel like there are nowhere near enough of these. I'd especially love to see stories with modern Jewish kids/teens. #MSWL

MG fantasy that echoes the enchantment and wonder of a good animated film, like Coco or anything by Miyazaki. #MSWL

I love a good psychological thriller (Gillian Flynn, Ruth Ware, etc.)--would love to find a teen one that plays with unreliable narrators, unexpected plot twists, etc. #MSWL

Oh hey, #MSWL day! I don't take unsolicited subs, but agents, here's what I'm looking for these days...

In YA, I would love to find a near-future sci-fi in the vein of Black Mirror or Orphan Black. I also just saw the film Ex Machina, which asks incredibly fascinating questions about AI. #MSWL
