1.) MAGIC REALISM. Give me contemporary stories with magic or historical tales with a mythological/fairy tale emphasis! I’m especially interested in diverse mythologies (or my old favorite, anything Celtic). #MSWL

Randomly thinking about how diverse, inclusive adult literary fiction, set in small, intimate settings, have just rocked my reading heart the last few years.

If you're writing anything that'll make me feel the way @ZillianZi and @blgtylr's books have, you should query me. #MSWL

Ignoring the fact that I am backed up on queries:

#MSWL I want the next Talia Hibbert Red heart Give me all the body-positive, LGBTQIA+ friendly, inclusive, diverse, and sexy contemporary romances. Please and thank you!

I really want an adult ballet contemporary romance or WF. No Swan Lake retellings... I am fatigued on those. LGBTQ+ or neurodiverse welcome and preferred. #MSWL

Throwing this out there, I would LOVE to find some diverse, inclusive rom-coms in my agent life.

Especially anything that's genre-blending, like The Plus One by Sarah Archer (robot engineer builds a wedding date).

Some of my current clients are writing them. Gimme more. #MSWL

I'm constantly catching up on queries (which have gone up 200% since the pandemic hit). One category I'd love to see more of are graphic novels for kids and teens. Contemporary/fantasy/historical. Always diverse voices! Especially if an author/illustrator. #MSWL

Hannah VanVels @hannahvanvels · May 18

Hello 👋 I have some professional news!

Today is my first day as an agent with @belcastr and I am OPEN to queries! I’m on the hunt for diverse and inclusive kid lit projects and a few adult genres as well!

You can query me at: querymanager.com/query/HannahVa…

Saying it again....I’m looking for a diverse, MG or YA graphic novel by an author or an author/ illustrator! #mswl

Hi! Good morning! This is your semi-annual reminder that while I'm looking for diversity and own voices across the board, I am particularly interested in seeing submissions in the mystery and historical romance genres. Please send! #mswl

In this weird and heavy and complicated time, Soho is on a temporary acquisitions pause.

BUT, agents—call! Write! Text! DM me! I will be doing the same. I want to make connections, friends, and look to the future with everyone.

I'm working on posting my #MSWL, but for now: I'm interested in books that embrace ST's mission—bold voices, diverse voices, daring stories of self-discovery—and also intimate voices, books & characters that exist in in-between spaces, marginalized or silenced perspectives.

a warm-weather update to my #MSWL: i'm really tapping into my love for funny, steamy, racially diverse rom-coms and would love to see more in my inbox! 🥰

At @bookendslit we've established an incredible list of cozy writers. Believe it or not, we are still looking for cozies. I'd love to see cozies that appeal to a younger & more diverse audience. #MSWL
