Erin Murphy @agentemurphI would LOVE additional recs, please! And also, I have to say, these must be very hard to get publishers to buy ("But almost nothing happens! It's all character- and world-building!") and yet obviously there are a lot of us hungry for it.
Agents! Hello! This thread is a great excuse to remind you that cozy fantasy & sci-fi is explicitly on my #MSWL! I WILL BUY IT, please let me buy it, thank you & happy long weekend 💖💕💗😊
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
I’m open to queries again and just found out my page is live on Manuscript Wish List!!!! 🎉🎉🎉
One update: I’m looking for the first 50 pgs, not 10, for fiction. 🤗 #mswl
I am “off” this week, so sadly unable to pay close attention on #SFFpit, but I love me some
Sci-fi & fantasy so do feel free check out my #MSWL and query me if you think we’d be a fit! Best of luck!! ✨
-contemporary fantasy in YA or MG
-MG whimsical fantasy a la Hayao Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli
-YA or MG high fantasy with a unique magic system / based on mythologies underrepresented In literature / that subverts the tropes of the genre
Meg Gaertner @MEGaertnerHey writers! I won’t be able to participate in #SFFpit for long today, but I’m always on the lookout for engaging SFF in the YA and MG spheres.
Here are some specific wish list items and how to reach me: 1/4
-character-driven YA sci-fi, especially if it explores a theme such as our relationship to technology or what it means to be human
-YA sci-fi blended with any other genre—sci-fi horror, sci-fi fantasy (I’d die for a YA Gideon the Ninth!), sci-fi mystery/thriller, etc.
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.
Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen3/ 2019 #MSWL Agents: 1st and always, I want to curate a list of authors (and books) that accurately reflects the world around me--one that is filled with diverse creators and content--and support them in our shared goal of creating more mirrors (and portals) for kids and teens.
Agent friends! Since I was closed to submissions for a while, I want to declare that I am/have been BACK OPEN FOR BUSINESS! Please send your clients' amazing projects my way. I'm particularly eager to find more YA contemporary and fantasy, plus MG contemporary. #MSWL
