At @HallmarkPublish we could really use a wholesome contemporary June wedding-themed romance! Got bridesmaids and groomsmen? Sister of the bride? Brother of the groom? Wedding planner? Send them our way! bit.ly/2n1gHwy #MSWL #amwriting #amquerying
What I'm currently looking for:
1) Culturally rich MG contemporary that will make me ugly cry.
2) Culturally rich YA fantasy or contemporary with unapologetic female protagonists who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty. #MSWL

I love love LOVE romance. I am sucker for it. But so often it reads very forced. Chemistry is the name of the game. I need to be gripping my kindle harder and "squeeing" out loud as our lovers go about their story.
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeNow let's talk contemporaries and what I am drawn to in those so when you see my #MSWL, you'll know.
First off, I need high concept. I am not often drawn to the contemporary that could be my everyday life. I need to escape so even if it is a real world setting, it is not my REAL WORLD.
Bridget Smith @bredalotI usually like a touch of magic, but lately I've been seeing a lot of queries that seemed like great high-concept contemporaries that turned into time travel or fantasy unexpectedly.
I still desperately need a Women's Fiction or Romance or even just Contemporary like The Bold Type! Friendship and female bosses galore! And HUMOR! All the laugh out loud lines, please! #MSWL
Thao Le @ThaoLe8BUT I want to see some modern magic realism, and some contemporary fantasy (think portal magic, magical bakeries/flower shops, lighthearted time travel in the vein of the movie About Time). Again, more modern/contemporary and less urban fantasy. #mswl

Gearing up to reopen to submissions (possibly in the next couple of weeks). I want to see more Middle Grade and Contemporary YA! Especially stories from POC and non-binary voices. Please no issue books. I want fully developed plots, strong hooks, and nuanced characters. #mswl
