Have I mentioned my obsession with secret societies? Like, I super love weird secret society stories and occult groups. Think NINTH HOUSE or THE SECRET HISTORY, but I'd also love to see stories outside of a university setting. #MSWL
I would LOVE a middle grade non-fiction book that explores the idea of patient zero and looks at different endemics and how medical researchers traced them back to that particular disease's patient zero.
Send this proposal to me!! #mswl
Jocelyn Rish @JocelynRishIt's happening! It's happening!

#BellLetsTalk is a great way to generate awareness. My #MSWL includes diverse representation of mental health issues both in fiction and non-fiction. Send me those queries. Let's end the stigma in as many ways as possible! 🙂
I'm redoing my #MSWL so I'll have a more in-depth list soon, but what I really want right now is small town romance. (Remember Finn on Grey's Anatomy, how he took Meredith on a date to birth a horse? Yeah, like that, but in a small town.) I just need some HEA and adorable towns
#MSWL: I’m usually not open to picture books I don’t solicit, but I’d love to see something celebrating holidays we don’t have many picture books about. Ones that aren’t currently served in publishing written by #own authors. So if you’ve got it, send it my way.
Ashley Herring Blake @ashleyhblakeI’m so excited that the news is out! I’ve joined the team at Rees Literary Agency as an agent! I’m so excited to work with this stellar team & be a part of getting awesome, needed books into the world! I’m officially open to queries! reesagency.com/ashley-herring…
Of course I’m looking for character-driven and heartfelt MG and YA, but I’m also very hungry for upmarket adult fiction and romance! Give me all your family, friend, and romantic angst! #MSWL
So, if you are an author of quirky, adventurous, challenging and bold sci-fi, fantasy, and horror, please be in touch. And if you are an author who isn’t quite sure whether your work is for the YA or adult market, query me and we’ll figure it out.
I’m particularly eager to find voices from historically underrepresented perspectives in adult SF/F and horror, and as a queer man, I am especially drawn to LGBTQIA+ and feminist perspectives for those genres as well. #MSWL
John Cusick @johnmcusickI am so excited to announce that I am now representing adult and crossover sci-fi, fantasy, and horror! MG & YA will continue to be a large part of my list (and I'm always looking for more!), but now I'm also actively pursuing and selling genre projects in the adult space.
So what am I looking for? I want explosive, colorful, funny, bizarre, exciting stories that examine technology, identity, and human relationships of all kinds. As in kidlit, I’m eager for vital, personal, and poignant stories in the #adult sf/f and horror genres. #MSWL
Stefanie Lieberman @hellegillyHey #MSWL: Am seeking a great love story with dimension, humor, and a strong commercial hook. Think ONE DAY or THE LIGHT WE LOST, but not necessarily a weepy. I am esp eager to read #ownvoices stories or underrepresented narratives in this space.
Renewing this #MSWL ask for 2020: Please please send me a big page-turning love story! I want a ONE DAY IN DECEMBER, GHOSTED, or THE UNHONEYMOONERS. Extra points for belly laughs...
Karen Greenberg @kgreenbergreadsBeen on the hunt for author-illustrators to bring to Knopf who have fresh stories to tell and diverse styles. New perspectives, art that makes my heart sing, irresistible characters. This is the top of my vision board for 2020. Universe - and agents - let’s make it happen! #mswl
