I do a lot of fantasy, but I also do a ton of contemporary, and I'd love to see more big-hook stories set in our world. If you want a great example of hooky, high-concept contemporary YA I love that we rep here @FolioJr: DUMPLIN' and TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE. #MSWL

Iโ€™m going to put it out there again. Iโ€™d really love to see younger YA contemporary that focuses on young teens starting high school for the first time with all of the mixed up feelings that come along with them!

And as always, send me great MG of all genres! #mswl

In #YA I'm looking for a few things. 1) Diverse, inclusive contemporary by #ownvoices authors 2) Send me something that will absolutely break my heart 3) strong voices in any genre 4) I always love a MC with an attitude and witty comebacks. #MSWL

Alex Slater @abuckslater · Feb 26

Me reading a query that promises a YA thriller, blending humor and horror, from a POC, and comps brand new media, and shows engagement with the convo within contemporary teen lit. #MSWL
