Agents—I’m on the hunt for more #MG! I am most drawn to contemporary coming-of-age stories, featuring underrepresented voices, characters who are navigating typical “firsts” (crushes, first periods, etc.), strong friendships, sibling and intergenerational relationships. #MSWL

#MSWL for when I'm wearing my agent's hat...

I'm DYING for a contemporary YA or ADULT #RomCom like Dreaming by @Jill_Barnett. I read it YEARS ago and it's one few books of any genre I've kept a copy of & reread. So read it and write me something like it!

Hey agents! I love that I get to edit books across all age groups, but I'd love to see more middle grade in my inbox! Fantasy, contemporary, and everything in between is cool, but I have a soft spot for the laugh-out-loud variety :)

In the last couple of months, I struck out twice when offering on fun contemporaries. One a YA rom-com, the other an adorable, witty, MG. So, #MSWL want: fun contemporaries with a great hook, super strong writing, & loveable protagonists, even when they are a bit complicated.

#MSWL Alert: I'd love to see a #MG or #YA with a #climate or #environmental theme, speculative/near-future or contemporary. Bonus if it's #ownvoices from a writer of color or about an under-served community!

The Babysitters Club is making me crave cute contemporary MG. Anyone have a MS or GN about friendships or first crushes? #mswl
