Funny

Tori Sharp is open to queries! @NovelTori · 14h

#mswl Iโ€™d love to see chapter books and MG and YA stories with humor that works on multiple levels -- funny for young readers and funny in a more nuanced or ironic way when they reread it years later.

Adult: I'm technically open to it, because who knows what I'll find, but it's a super hard sell. I'm only interested in #ownvoices projects that walk the line of being funny and lighthearted while still adding to a larger sociopolitical conversation.

For MG fiction, my interests fall heavily on the action-adventure scale, especially stories informed by non-western mythology and folklore. Loud and funny is a better fit than quiet and contemplative. In nonfiction, I love topics that kidsโ€”and Iโ€”can geek out about.

Would love a spooky/funny middle-grade ghost story. Or a terrifying one for YA. #mswl #ya #mg

Jackie Williams @jywilliams14 · Jul 14

For nonfiction:
- Lifestyle, mind/body/spirit books that make us more self-aware and empathetic
- Funny gift books like AM I OVERTHINKING THIS?
- Productivity, self-improvement or practical books like ATOMIC HABITS, DIGITAL MINIMALISM

I'm going to bug the #WritingCommunity and #romancelandia again. I'm desperately seeking to represent an author who writes happy, funny, heartfelt books in MG, YA, or Adult. #mswl.

Replying to @writerswkend

Here is my #mswl darleyandersonblog.com/2020/02/25/meeโ€ฆ Generally, outside of crime, things that are uplifting & are about finding/making connections. High concept, feel-good, love stories. And across children's uplifting again, funny, things inspired by kindness and nature.

MIDDLE GRADE:
- Funny and sweet contemporary coming-of-age stories
- Light fantasy adventures with great heart
- Historical fiction highlighting lesser-known narratives about marginalized folk

Agents! I am especially looking for funny MG right now. Help a girl out! #MSWL

Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz · Apr 29

I'm forever on the hunt for more funny picture books. Please send me your humor! I'm open to all types: loud, zany, quirky, strange, dry, subversive, potty, punny. Whatever you got, send it my way! #MSWL

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRoth · Apr 22

And I will most assuredly miss lots of pitches today (yay kids at home!). My queries are open regardless of today's event. I'm always looking for funny, madcap adventures in MG and big sweeping escapist stories in YA (all genres, but not the bloody ones). #DVpit #MSWL

Jessica @jcehare · Apr 22

We're open to submissions! Guidelines here: cutt.ly/3yrOdYs I'm looking for voice-driven narratives across genres mainly in MG, teen and YA, series & standalone. Drawn to immersive settings. Good writing and strong characters vital. Feel-good and funny esp welcome #MSWL

Day 34: I have one solitary crisp, white eyebrow hair. Pajamas have fused to my body. I eat pickles for breakfast now.
