Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburnAs the holidays approach, some news:
I'll be closing to queries Dec. 1 - 31. I have a pile of queries & subs to catch up on, so please add yours to it before Dec. 1 if you wish!
#amquerying #amagenting #WritingCommunity
While I'm at it, a quick #MSWL of things I would love to see right now:
- Big-hearted contemporary MG
- MG horror
- A domestic thriller
- YA thriller/horror
- YA/A speculative/light sci-fi (think Black Mirror)
- MG/YA/A with a culinary theme
RL Martin @AuthorRLMartin@Literary_Tara What genres are you seeing a lot of in your inbox, or are wishing you were seeing more of? #askagent
I would love to read a YA contemporary with an incredibly strong friendship, a la Amy and Molly in BOOKSMART. Bonus points if the conflict does NOT stem from romance/love interest complications (between the friends or another character)! #MSWL
Catching up on subs and i notice i have excellent YA here, but not much MG! #mswl WHEN I REOPEN: I really want to work on more MG! Commercial or literary—give me your big series hooks, magic, light and fun contemporary, hopeful stories touching on tough topics, queer characters!!
I'm wondering why I almost never get queried with contemporary manuscripts. Perhaps it's the 'all genres' that's making people shy away...
Is anyone out there writing rom-coms or contemporary with fresh twists?
I love contemporary too. :)
Toni Rhodes @rhodestonib@NaomisLitPix Are u looking for kidlit?
Yes, certain genres! MG fantasy and contemp, YA contemp, and picture books with certain themes on my #MSWL
The Beccadook @RebeccaPodos@LindaEpstein I wish one for you 🙏🏼
Thanks, friend! I'd LOVE to see a contemporary YA Jewish girls in (surprise!) love come into my inbox. Like, maybe neither one knows the other's queer? Or maybe at camp? Or something... #MSWL
Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPixUpdating my #MSWL!
I desperately want YA contemporary. Powerful female friendships fraught w/tension & drama. An updated YA Girl: Interrupted. Show me how a peer catastrophe in high school truly feels like the end of the world. Validate those moments & their impact.
Still REALLY looking for this updated YA Girl: Interrupted sort of story! #MSWL
