Elizabeth Lee @EleeReadsAs @GraceKendallLit tweeted, Macmillan is on rotational WFH due to coronavirus. However, I'm full-time WFH for now because I'm in a high risk population. With that said, I'm safe and cozy at home and very excited to read all! the! submissions! So please send them my way. 💙
As a caveat, at this time I'm only accepting agented manuscripts. Thank you! Can't wait to read!
Mara Delgado-Sanchez 🇵🇷 @little_mswriterSince I’m actively acquiring, here’s a bit of my mswl. A couple of things:
1. Diverse and Own Voices stories are always welcome in my inbox
2. Please don’t pitch me on twitter.
3. And of note, I’m only accepting agented submissions at this time!
Agents, here’s my #MSWL as we shift to wfh for a while! Time to get cracking!
#MSWL Would really love some mega queer YA. So long as it's hooky, I'm not super picky about genre (just not huge into high fantasy/high sci-fi). I love being surprised by pitches I might not've normally expected to go for. (A lot of what I bring to acquisitions starts that way.)
Agent V @VeroniKaboomReverse Indiana Jones, where he steals from museums and gives back to the cultures the artifacts were stolen from. twitter.com/nancipants/sta…
#MSWL can you imagine what a cool GN this would be tho
Thao Le (Will Reopen to Queries Feb 10th) @ThaoLe8Any Latinx writers out there ever want to do a retelling of Zorro? Like a gender bent one or a modern one or a fantasy one or something? I would love to see it! #mswl
Serena and Stories @serena_storiesIn Pinto Smauto (G.Basile 1636), Betta refuses to marry any man. She moulds a husband with her own hands and he comes to life. Alas, a queen steals him from her. After many troubles, Betta finds the stolen husband, tricks the queen and goes back home with him.
Caitlyn Averett @craverett#MSWL MG with evil geniuses à la Artemis Fowl. Like, it’s great when kids save the world, but I’d love to see them trying to take over the world, too.
But in a way that makes me root for the main character. I want to *want* them to succeed, no matter their goal.
Still looking for this! #MSWL
#MSWL Really in the mood for voicey, gritty contemporary YA. Give me messy characters struggling to hold it all together while dealing with difficult situations/emotions. I love bittersweet stories that hurt & also make me smile. (A plus if it’s LGBTQIA.) Please send them to me!
Jessica Khoury @jkbibliophileOne day I’ll write about a pragmatic, ordinary small-town girl who accidentally ends up as manager/den mother to a group of emotionally defunct superheroes who can barely save anyone, and how her earthy determination, relentless optimism, and pecan pies save them (and the world).
This but a MG/YA graphic novel!!! Make my year and land it in my inbox please? 😍 #MSWL
It has come to my attention that the JIMMY list has no books containing dragons. This must be remedied, so agents, please send me MG submissions with dragons in them! I had a huge thing for dragons as a kid and would love to see some unique takes on them now. #MSWL
AP Quach @sassquachcomics@ReadingReganW I'm kidding, it wasn't an illustrator, it was a gal who wanted to open her own bookshop, but now I'm going to make her an amateur illustrator too.
This makes me think of You’ve Got Mail in the best possible way. I need this on my #mswl right now
Caitlyn Averett @craverettI’d love to see some really fun, quirky, voicey commercial MG in my inbox as of January. (I mean, feel free to send it in December, but I’m working through my current submissions rn.) #MSWL
I’d also like some more MG fantasy! #MSWL
