Contemporary

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 8 May 2019

I almost tweeted "YA rom-con" instead of "YA rom-com" and I officially want to read a YA contemporary novel about two teens planning a heist who OOPS also fall in love. #MSWL

#MSWL Adventurous contemporary MG's with heart. A little magical realism is always welcome too!!

Garrett Alwert @GarrettAlwert · 3 May 2019

#MSWL Smart funny contemporary YA's in the same vein as Ben Philippe, Katie Henry, Jeff Zentner, Ibi Zoboi, Emery Lord and Ashley Poston.

4. A #YA #contemporary that is atmospheric a la RIVERDALE and blends mystery and romance in just the right way. I want to get the #creeps as well as #allthefeels. #MSWL

In the spirit of @jamerrson doing an MSWL, I'm going to chime with one, too!

I am really into the song BURY A FRIEND and would love a YA that has that atmospheric, psychological feeling in contemporary #MSWL

James McGowan @jmcgowanbks · 30 Apr 2019

I'm also looking for #YA! At this point, I'm leaning more towards Contemporary YA (think funny like The Field Guide to the American Teenager, or books dealing with important topics like On the Come Up or Heroine). #MSWL

"A diverse, contemporary YA novel about strong guy friendships. Think Poe and Finn. <3" @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

I love finding new authors and so here's my updated #MSWL! Contemporary women’s; rom-coms; high concept crime & thriller; horror; historical fiction; feminist fiction & non-fiction; compelling memoirs; popular science. thebentagency.com/sarah-hornsley

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · 29 Apr 2019

I really want a YA contemporary with a powerful female friendship. Like one of those fast, somewhat combustible friendships that takes 100% of you in the high school years and maybe cannot last forever but leaves that soul-deep mark... #mswl

Authors! I've been closed to queries for 3 months due to ill health in my family. I am re-opening today, but being somewhat specific on what I'm seeking. Please read this thread or my #MSWL manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara… (The tulip is just for fun.) ....

Ali Herring @HerringAli · 25 Apr 2019

I’m seeing lots of calls for contemporary fantasy, so send this my way, please! #MSWL

Tia Rose Mele @TiatheTiger · 25 Apr 2019

I go to trivia at least once a week, so if you could somehow make a trivia lover like me interesting, I’d love to see that YA or contemporary romance 😂 #mswl

Ladderbird Agency @ladderbirdlit · 25 Apr 2019

I'd love to see more contemporary YA focused around friendship struggles rather than romance. Romance is great, but I'd rather have it sidelined in favor of friends. As always, stories by and about the lives of underrepresented voices are best! #mswl

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · 22 Apr 2019

In contemporary YA, I want stories where teens have departed "their usual world" for some reason. Humanitarian trips, visits to ancestral places. Immigration/refugee stories rooted in truth. An updated GIRL: INTERRUPTED style departure from their usual would be amazing. #mswl

Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPix · 22 Apr 2019

I am opening to YA fantasy and contemporary queries! On my YA #MSWL: fantasies that are entirely new worlds,new fairytales. No generic regency-style fantasy worlds. Bring me new applications of/restrictions on new magic, uncommonly featured stars of the story, relevant parallels.

Moe Ferrara is in need of coffee @inthesestones · 22 Apr 2019

It's only been forever and a day but I finally updated my #MSWL profile! Now including select genres of narrative non-fiction — and basically send me all your queer fiction or creepy, lyrical middle grade books! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/moe-…
