Listen I know fantasy loves its mages, assassins, warrior princesses, and knights but please give me more scholars, shamans, mapmakers, artisans, and bards - I would love to see more creatives having adventures in SFF! #MSWL

#MSWL In MG in particular, I'd love to see more urban fantasy adventures like Percy Jackson featuring casts of really loveable characters in really epic situations.

Upper MG, YA crossover, and YA like LEGENDBORN is definitely welcome too!

#MSWL I'd love a non-Western✨ vampire ✨book.

MG, YA, & Adult all welcome.

For MG: likely adventure/fantasy based w/magic and/or non-Western mythology.

For the rest: fantasy set in a non-Western world w/sharp stakes & a romance.

Could be 1st or 2nd world fantasy.

📚 MG: I love kids getting into trouble and have to get out of said trouble before their parents get home!

Unless it's a madcap adventure novel *or* kids navigating their queerness, I'm really not looking for contemporary middle grade.

📚 MG: Three things I'll probably always be looking for:
1. Adventure novel with a humorous voice
2. creepy and lyrical horror a la coraline.
3. queer first crush (if it makes you think of the short 'in a heartbeat' I want to see it.)

Just updated my #MSWL for anyone who wants to take a gander. Still looking for the next fantasy or sci-fi MS that pushes my buttons. I like a little darkness, a harrowing adventure. Also always looking for NF in a bunch of categories.

For MG I'm interested in finding a high concept fantasy adventure, or a funny heart-warming narrative. I'm always on the look out for writing from underrepresented voices and so please do get in touch with your stories. 2/3

Teen action/adventure! I didn't know I wanted this until I lost out on one... and now I'm desperate for one and I can't find it! I'd love something that sits in the Alex Rider space, with genuine heart-in-your-mouth danger.
