“Middle Grade: a protagonist with immigrant parents, an animal story (NOT talking animals), anything with an environmental theme, inventive chapter book series.” @msmariavicente #MSWL

If you are querying a MG or YA graphic novel, especially if you are an author-illustrator, I'd love to see it. #PitMad #BVM #MSWL

Reading submissions this morning to the charming soundtrack of @dadimakesmusic 🎶

Wants: realism, love, happiness, comedy, danger, the world as a bigger place, hope
Do not want: death, grief, boring character journeys, boring characters, stories I have heard before #MSWL

CATHERINE HOUSE is a NYTBR editors choice!! 🤩 I’ll take any good news 🙏🏾…

Couldn't agree more, @nytimesbooks:

CATHERINE HOUSE, by @lissiethomas is a terrific read, gorgeously written, full of mystery and intrigue. I ignored my family and read it cover to cover. Could not put it down!

(P.S. I'd love to find a project like it in my #query box. #MSWL)…

Real talk - I would be into something in my inbox for kids or teens that, if not actively advocating for prison abolition, seriously treats it as an option and a pathway. Fiction or nonfiction. MG or YA. #mswl

Earlier this year this was just me hedging my bets, but seriously - send me your abolitionist works, I want to see if we can do a teamwork. I'm behind on submissions bc of my health, but trust, I'll read it. 💛#mswl

It’s JUNE. It’s PRIDE! 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈 I’d love to see tons of #LGBTQ stories, specifically by #trans and #poc authors to celebrate the first pride! This applies to non-fiction too! 🏳️‍🌈❤️ #mswl

I'm not participating in PitMad today because of my insane workload, but I am ALWAYS hungry to see more queries from diverse writers, ESPECIALLY Black & Black LGBTQ+ writers. There's no deadline for finding your next favorite story. #amquerying #MSWL

Maura Kye-Casella @AgentMKC · 2d

Particularly looking for MG right now. Recent favorites: FROM THE DESK OF ZOE WASHINGTON (so many happy/sad tears) and SO DONE (love alternating POV). All-time favorites: FRONT DESK, THE LINE TENDER, THE WAR THAT SAVED MY LIFE and THE STARS BENEATH OUR FEET. #mswl

“With non-fiction I want to learn something by accident, tell me a good story in a fun new way that keeps me thinking. I really enjoyed Carlo Rovelli’s SIX BRIEF LESSONS ON PHYSICS.” @maureen_moretti #MSWL

Katie Shea Boutillier 🦈 @AgentShea · 3d

Looking for both YA and adult contemporary stories of #ownvoices and #POC. Raw, honest voices. Real emotions, with a commercial hook. Please query me. I am always, always on the hunt for great storytellers. #MSWL

“YA non-fiction: Memoir, essay collections, you name it. Queer There & Everywhere is probably my favorite YA non-fic title in recent memory, and a great example of what I’d like to see.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL
