Contemporary

Kelly 📚 @LitAgentKelly · Mar 30

I have a lot of YA in my box. You know what I’d love to have more of? MG (fantasy, sci-fi, and contemporary) and Adult Romance! So a few #MSWL for these two age ranges are to follow! ❤️

I’m back from maternity leave in a month and I want all the submissions, especially YA contemporary #MSWL

Time flies when you're having fun! In my first 6 months of agenting I've built a client list I'm SO proud of. Here's an updated #MSWL (for the next 6 months & beyond!): author-illustrators, slice-of-life chapter book series, girly middle grade (all genres), and contemporary YA.

I'm also always, always looking for a good fantasy. It could be Contemporary or High. Could be court intrigue or our world with a twist. The point is, if you've got magic, I'm interested. #MSWL

#MSWL These are the kinds of details that build a convincing, contemporary YA world. Teens are intertwined with digital communication, and they're secretive, which means they're going to figure this shit out on their own. So much to mine! Write it true.

"Super fun Contemporary YA. You know all your favourite swoon-worthy fanfics? I want YA fiction like that." @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation/

After watching Salt Fat Acid Heat I am craving a food-related contemp fantasy! #MSWL

Thao Le @ThaoLe8 · Mar 12

I'm preparing to reopen to queries next week and wanted to share my current #mswl:

Contemporary Fantasy in the vein of the films About Time and Your Name
Diverse MG like Aru Shah and the End of Time and Amina’s Voice
Foodie Magic like Chocolat and Garden Spells
LGBTQ Retellings

Sharon Belcastro @SharonBelcastro · Mar 10

Would love to see a contemporary YA along the lines of Fighting With My Family. #MSWL.

Kat Kerr @thekatsmews · Mar 9

As a Korean-American, I'm on the hunt for anything that showcases my culture and heritage. I want to boost our stories across genres: contemporary, historical, SF/F...again, own-voices only. #mswl

Kate Nash @katenashagent · Mar 7

"Whether historical or contemporary, I don’t see enough... life or death drama coming in on submission, and I’d love to." I spoke to @histnovel for the @histnovsoc magazine #MSWL #literaryagent #askagent historicalnovelsociety.org/ask-the-agent-…

Sara Megibow @SaraMegibow · Mar 5

To shake things up, I'd love to see more submissions for friends-to-lovers romance novels - especially full-length (90,000 word) contemporaries. Could be standalone or first in proposed series.
