Also, here's a handy #MSWL! Eager for book club fiction, suspense, contemporary YA, and diverse voices. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara… Please note: unless I directly request something and outside of #PitMad, I am only accepting agented submissions!
I'm not participating in PitMad today because of my insane workload, but I am ALWAYS hungry to see more queries from diverse writers, ESPECIALLY Black & Black LGBTQ+ writers. There's no deadline for finding your next favorite story. #amquerying #MSWL
Seeking: manuscripts from POC, diverse authors, #LGBTQ, #OwnVoices, & all voices that have been silenced but NEED to be heard. I support you & want to share your stories with the world. Querying guidelines & wish list: theseymouragency.com/About-Us.html. #MSWL #WritingCommunity #amquerying
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
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…
- Literary, character-driven stories featuring diverse ensembles and strong points of view
- Joyful romcoms about marginalized protagonists
- Light fantasy / speculative fiction
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
Alexa Wejko @amwejkoIn 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.
