✨Diverse, inclusive adult literary
✨Literary fiction with speculative elements
✨Upmarket/literary fantasy in the vein of Alix Harrow, V.E. Schwab, or Carlos Ruiz Zafón that explores folklores or mythologies.
Bonus points for stories rooted in multi-generational secrets
At last, I have a profile on ManuscriptWishList.com. My current wish list is live, though I'll continue to tweet new and specific items as they come to me. #MSWL
Or a dash of speculative in contemporary is great too! For YA fantasy, I love swoony, action-packed stories with fresh magic systems and diverse worldbuilding #MSWL.
Good morning! Finally built out my #MSWL page for all curious minds (and agents and writers): manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/iren…

I’d LOVE to see MG and YA contemporary graphic novel scripts (magical realism is good too). Author only, author/illustrator, or team—I’ll look at all. #MSWL #WritingCommunity #diversity #inclusive Query me via Query Manager.
Over at #MSWL, I've got a little list of what I'm looking for up, as well as some musings about the importance of LGBTQIA2S+ books!
In YA & MG (incl GNs):
* Diverse contemporary stories that are authentic instead of trendy
* Novels that are by & about people whose tales are yet untold
* Soulful, insightful, & well-crafted projects
* Stories that leave me cackling 😆 or sobbing 😭 long after I've read THE END
A suspenseful #MSWL from @jenissamichelle!
"In YA, a buildup in suspense (13 REASONS WHY) with a diverse cast of characters. Similar to EVEN IF WE BREAK by Marieke Nijkamp or ONE OF US IS LYING where different POV's can help drive the plot."
I would love to find a juicy YA drama or thriller with strong characterizations and a rich setting (BIG LITTLE LIES, but make it diverse and YA and set in a fresh, intriguing location). #MSWL
