hello! it's almost my birthday & I would love nothing more than to find my inbox flooded with:
🏳️🌈 adorable queer love stories for mg and ya
🎃 spooky & silly mg with lots of magic
🌍 funny contemp ya that takes place outside of the US
🎂 pb or mg about baking & sprinkles
Just watched #SomeoneGreat on @netflix and would love that in book form—those fierce female friendships, that strong setting, that bomb soundtrack—but younger, cleaner, and just as funny and heartwarming. Who's got me covered? #mswl
I'm caught up on agented submissions through 7/15! I'm hungry for all kinds of PB, MG, and YA. #MSWL of the moment: funny-sad MG, sex-positive YA, something in the vein of ANGUS, THONGS, AND FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING. (Please note: I can't consider unagented subs.)
Andrea Walker @_AndreaWalker_@erin_clyburn @Megan_Manzano @Literary_Tara What’s at the TOP of your MSWL? Anything you’re dying to see?! 😁
I'll retweet this one. THE TOP of my list would be a romance like RED, WHITE, AND ROYAL BLUE. A queer romance that is more than a romance, funny, and makes me swoon. #MSWL
Jess Leake @JessLeakeJust saw @AllieLevick mentioned in this article of fantastic PB lit agents, and I can attest to how knowledgable, helpful, and quick to respond she is! writersdigest.com/publishing-ins…
Hey! I’m on a list! How cool.
Please send me your funny AND heartfelt author-illustrated PBs! I’m all about the ~layered~ narrative.
Big thanks to the incredible @JessLeake who totally made my morning with this!
I updated my #MSWL page. I’m looking for MG, YA, kids/teen GN, and author-illustrators. Great writing a must, high concept a plus, and diversity in all ways is welcome. I love your queer, weird, funny, beautiful, nerdy SHENANIGANS. More info: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/jenn…
I am opening to select Non-Fiction queries. Still putting together a #MSWL, but I am particularly interested in LGBTQ+ perspectives in parenting, or funny parenting titles, or funny cookbooks. I will share more later!

I don’t know... Maybe??? #Mswl I think I’d like to see this as super serious and creepy, Gothic. Or a very funny cozy. You pick!

Julia McCarthy @thejumblesOh, hey! After discovering the majesty of Hersheypark’s teen employees last week, I’d love to find me a goofy, funny, earnest YA about a group of kids spending the summer working together at an amusement park. #MSWL
I second this. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 #MSWL

Alex Borbolla @Alex_BorbollaAm I months behind on submissions? Yes. Will that prevent me from asking for more? NOPE!
Anyone have a young, funny YA to send my way? Think Meg Cabot with a little heft. #mswl
