Hey, #amquerying peeps! I really, really, really want MG projects. #OwnVoices and #diversity = bonus! I also really, really, really want some I-cannot-put-this-down thrillers. Send query & 1st 5 pages to: querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (dot) com. #mswl

Really enjoyed ONE DAY IN DECEMBER. Would LOVE to find a project in that vein. Just a sweet rom-com that completely pulls you in. Especially one that features a diverse cast &/or is centered around a holiday/tradition other than Xmas. #MSWL #A #WF #R

On a totally different note, I'd love to see a contemporary YA with a diverse cast of teen activists standing up for what they believe in. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · Apr 3

I’m fascinated by ritual & faith - how these intertwine to create belief - and don't see enough religious diversity in my queries. Especially books that explore what belief feels like and/or what it is to want to believe, but find you can't. #MSWL

“Commercial Fiction and Rom Coms: (especially with a diverse cast!) like AYESHA AT LAST, JANE THE VIRGIN, ONE DAY IN DECEMBER, THE PROPOSAL, and Elin Hilderbrand. I need a very strong hook.” @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

If you have middle grade or YA project that feels like #OneDayAtATime with all of that amazing diverse representation, please send it my way. I’ll need to fill the hole created by its cancellation. #mswl

Thao Le @ThaoLe8 · Mar 12

I'm preparing to reopen to queries next week and wanted to share my current #mswl:

Contemporary Fantasy in the vein of the films About Time and Your Name
Diverse MG like Aru Shah and the End of Time and Amina’s Voice
Foodie Magic like Chocolat and Garden Spells
LGBTQ Retellings

Thank you @jamerrson for creating this beautiful art. Yes! I’m seeking suspense & women’s fiction, literary, upmarket, & nonfiction and desperate for more diverse voices #mswl

"Very hungry to work on more LGBTQ+ YA novels and diverse, inclusive reads. I'd also love to see more YA non-fiction hit my inbox." @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

I’d love to see more #ownvoices and #diversity MG and YA queries. Paste query and first five pages in body of email and send to: querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (dot) com. #writingcommmunity #amquerying #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · Mar 1

I'd love to find some more SFF novels that are fun, moving, diverse, and accessible.

My favorite SFF read last year was by @pengshepherd, and I'm smitten with the works of @KatWithSword @DelilahSDawson and @ChuckWendig.

The City of Brass by @SAChakrabooks is a perfect book.

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · Mar 1

I'm on the lookout for more diverse and inclusive voices in YA across all genres.

My favorite books last year were by authors like @RantingOwl @justinaireland @theames and @AshWrites.

And I'm DESPERATE to find a sci-fi genre blending masterpiece like @erin_bowman's Contagion.

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
