Hanna Alkaf @yesitshannaHey publishing, can someone do RRP but for Goosebumps style MG horror? Different diverse author for every book? Yes? Please?
I want this VERY BADLY. #MSWL
Hi all! I've been on the @pagestreetkids team for a while, most recently on the marketing/PR side, but I'm excited to announce I'm now a children's editor full time! Check out my brand new #MSWL here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/kayl…
Kaitlyn Johnson - closed to Queries @RedPenKaitlynIt's almost time!!! Given how I'll be opening my query box again in November, here's my new and improved #MSWL 😆 #amagenting #querytip #amquerying pic.twitter.com/nbD7rKjsCl
In YA & MG, I really want historical, paranormal, contemporary, fantasy (of all kinds!), and non-graphic horror
Keep in mind, I'm super on the hunt for LGBTQ+, diverse voices, and new settings/events/creatures that aren't mainstream

I would love to see some more amazing kid lit illustrators in my Query Box—paticularly author-illustrators. As always especially on the lookout for diverse creators!

“Diverse adult fiction set in the fashion industry with popping visual imagery and lots of smart character-driven drama. Flagships, offices, shops, etc. welcome!" @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
I’m really looking forward to #KidLitGN! I’ll be looking for MG + YA graphic novels from authors and author/illustrators. I love realism and magic and science and horror—I love it all! I’m also particularly keen to find projects from diverse creators! #mswl
Also, more graphic novel authors and illustrators! I'm open to all categories, but especially love MG and YA. Mostly looking for inclusive, diverse stories from underrepresented communities. #MSWL #GraphicNovel #illustrator
Shout out my lovely clients @jocabako and @Schnumn!
2. Adult rom-com or contemporary romance set during the holidays—I love Christmas, but I’d love to see diverse holidays celebrated also.
Carrie Pestritto⁷ @literarycarrieUmmm, so I would seriously like to see ALL THE DIVERSE ROM-COMS. All of them. Send, send, send, thank you! ❤️ #mswl
I feel like this is worth reiterating bc I REALLY want these! #mswl
The BIGGEST take away here should be to send me gooey love stories set in non-Western places, that have diverse characters, and any pairing—m/m, f/f, f/m. I just really want my heart to swoon when I read.
Some things: agented submissions only, diverse & own voices encouraged, nothing fully illustrated or mainly graphic, pls don’t dm me bc I might not see it till years later. Thank you for ur time :-)
Excited to announce: After 4+ years on the editorial team at the Junior Library Guild, I’m going back to ACQUIRING as an associate editor at S&S Children’s/Atheneum! I start in October. Can’t wait to work w/authors again & buy diverse books—we kinda need them, don’t you think? 😁
TROPE-HEAVY ROMANCE! Especially diverse, queer, intersectional romances! Please for the love of all that's sacred someone send me an ace-romance. I beg the publishing gods! #MSWL
Hattie @hatteatimeI judge all my submissions on three criteria - strength of concept (is it marketable? is it individual? is it interesting?), confidence of voice (you get a sense of the fluency of a voice from one page alone) and sustained compelling storytelling (which I need a full ms to judge)
Right now I'm looking for contemporary fiction (both commercial and upmarket), historical fiction and crime fiction. I'm really keen to hear from diverse voices - BIPOC writers, LGBT writers, regional writers, disabled writers, working class writers, writers without a degree.
