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.

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

"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.

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

#askagent Do you have a #CR tropes you particularly hate/love @NaomisLitPix

Replying to @HRuthMiller

Personally, I love contemporary romance that is less tropey, and deals with deep character issues. Right now I am actively seeking LGBTQ+ contemporary romance! #MSWL
