Agent pals! I am hungry for new, exciting acquisitions. I'm actively looking for... #MSWL
✨ horror, horror, HORROR. MG & YA. Campy, psychological, gothic, you name it. Yes I just watched the #FearStreet trilogy and loved it!
✨ Twisty YA thrillers with diverse casts
I've found some great proposal so far. Keep 'em coming! Make sure to read this post about specific projects I am looking for! Babbles from Scott Eagan: #MSWL Diverse Stories and Diverse Voices scotteagan.blogspot.com/2021/07/mswl-d…
“Send me your diverse MG adventures where the kids go wild in a fashion industry setting, think a big and beautiful bridal shop a la Say Yes to the Dress or a designer's home office or flagship.” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
#MSWL For YA, I’d love to see kind of edgy contemporary and thrillers that represent some of that diversity mentioned above. One specific thing I’d ~love is a story about a teenage activist who stands for something they believe in, perhaps despite being underestimated.
Carlisa Cramer @carlisajcHAPPY NEWS ALERT: After a bit of a hiatus, I’m back acquiring for @fluxbooks and @JollyFishPress. I’m so excited to jump back in and find some incredible MG and YA stories!
So in terms of my #MSWL, I am on the hunt for engaging characters with strong voices, especially characters who represent diversity in race, sexual orientation, gender identity, and physical disabilities. A dream book is a young adult book with a type 1 diabetic MC.

AGREE, @marjorieingall! Query me if yr book reflects the rich diversity w/in Judaism, if you're writing about a "Black Orthodox Jewish kid who solves mysteries," or a "Jewish girl on a desert planet who rescues a fugitive droid and saves the galaxy"! #MSWL nyti.ms/3r0URd0

“Stories that celebrate neurodiversity, from authors who are themselves neurodivergent, both in fiction and non-fiction, Middle Grade, Young Adult, and Adult.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
As a Black editor, one of my goals is to acquire diverse voices including LGTBQIA+, BIPOC, Latinx, neurodiverse, and other underrepresented identities. I’m very passionate about diversity and representation in publishing. #MSWL
