Mara Delgado-Sanchez 🇵🇷 @little_mswriterI love YA fantasy and I’m looking for diverse stories and #ownvoices here. Where are the Latinx witches and kingdoms? Take me to places based off of cultures like my own, and not like my own. I like contemp, court intrigue, plot twists and tropes (and spins on tropes too) #MSWL
Sharing this again! I’m really craving a high concept YA fantasy right now! Bonus points if it’s a Latinx one. Something that stands out and has strong emotional resonance, as well as complex characters (and character dynamics) #mswl
"Sci-fi & fantasy novels. I love them. I read a ton of them. But they have to be accessible.What does that mean? It means that readers who don't traditionally pick up much sci-fi/fantasy, can pick up one of these novels & enjoy it." @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Other things that make my agent heart sing: high concepts, voicey narration, fantasy (especially with a unique twist), lush historical settings, fresh paranormal, boarding schools, sister stories, falling in & out of friendship, dark & atmospheric, setting as character. #MSWL
If I missed your #DVpit pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. #A: horror, thriller, cont. romance, rom-com & mystery. #YA: thriller, SFF, horror, cont. & mystery. #MG: SFF, mystery, cont., & horror. #diversity #MSWL #ownvoices querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.) com
A sweeping MG or YA fantasy with epic stakes, bold themes, lush writing, and relatable characters. Bonus points for series potential. MG and YA fantasy is always at the top of my #MSWL and in these times, I especially want to lose myself in a smart, well-crafted world.
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife#MSWL a YA fantasy HACKSAW RIDGE. This was a war movie that felt so different to me because of who Desmond Doss was.
Ashley Herring Blake @ashleyhblakeHere’s a #MSWL for you: A YA or ADULT fantasy set in Paris or Prague or Budapest or something uniquely akin, with an MC who most definitely knows she’s badass & powerful & won’t hesitate to tell you exactly where you can stick your hero-complex. In my dreams, she’s ragingly pan.
A contemporary YA/Adult fantasy with your fave anti-hero. #MSWL

Day 34: I have one solitary crisp, white eyebrow hair. Pajamas have fused to my body. I eat pickles for breakfast now.
Agents! I'm looking for manuscripts to boost everyone's spirits! Heart-warming MG! YA fantasy to get lost in! Funny or sweet PBs! #MSWL
Christina Miller @chrissymiller__As I'm social distancing, I want to escape into my query inbox, and decided to do a quick #MSWL thread on what I'm currently looking for:
#MSWL ALL! THE! ROMANCE!
Send me your contemporaries, your historicals, your suspense, your fantasy, and anything and everything in between!
beth phelan, here sometimes @beth_phelanI wanna troll @petejknapp by slapping my own mswl tag on his wishlist tweets 🤔😜
in seriousness, would love
-larger-than-life narrative voice
-MG fantasy series
-YA after high school about teens not going to college
-something that feels like a bottle episode
#MSWL - middle grade or YA graphic novel series, whether contemporary, contemporary with a twist of magic, or fantasy. Especially would love to find a great contemporary series with a great concept.
