Joanna Moult @JoannaMoultI'm loving the #WMPitch tweets. But there are SO many & it's quite overwhelming so I feel I may have missed a gem. If you think I might be a good fit for your work please send it to me. All submission details are here skylark-literary.com. See tweet 👇 below for my wishlist
My #MSWL is for funny, warm-hearted MG or an engaging, absorbing MG adventure, partic told from fresh perspectives. In YA, a super-fresh hook & vivid characters, whether with contemp realistic setting or with fantasy/magical elements. #OwnVoices are v. imp to me #WMPitch
for RRP MG, i want snarky, funny, action-adventure 📚 featuring young BIPOC & deeply rooted in ✨mythology & magic ✨
here too i'd love to see even more intersectional protagonists & stories that subvert the typical RRP formula, like the upcoming SERWA BOATENG! (4/6)
Andrew Nurnberg Associates @nurnberg_agencyCalling all #fiction writers, we will be making weekly call-outs on behalf of agents @JennySavill1 and @ce_seymour. We're looking particularly for writers from underrepresented backgrounds but are open to all, as always, and can't wait to hear from you!

I would jump through hoops for submissions by Jewish #BIPOC authors, for picture books, chapter books, middle grade and YA. I'd love joyful stories, romances, fantasies, quirky and funny, and... whatcha got? #MSWL #writingcommunity
Aneeka Kalia @neeks_kalia12Agents, I love picture books (please keep sending them to me) but I'd love to add some funny, contemporary middle grade to my upcoming lists! #mglit #MSWL pic.twitter.com/YXOtxp9w5N
I'm in the mood for MG! Please send me something spooky, send me something funny, send me something full of adventure, send me something that makes me think. And as always, would love to see subs by marginalized creators across genres. Ready to fall in love with some MG! #MSWL
I’m really craving joyful and funny stories at the moment. Would love to see more in my queries, particularly from marginalised voices. Romance, friendships, adventure, all with a side of LOL. #mswl
2. Older YA, especially if you have a story about a teen who elects not to go to college
3. Hopeful, funny, romantic
4. Emotionally-fraught, grounded thrillers and mysteries
6. Experimental, inventive storytelling

💫 Paranormal adult rom com. I’m still on the hunt for a vampire or witchy rom com, and queer it if you got it. I’m talking charming, quirky, funny, steamy, tropey, just add witches and/or vamps. Easy peasy. 🤩🧛🏻♀️🧙🏻♀️#MSWL
“Actively seeking fun / funny gift books, especially with a lifestyle twist to them. Open to a really wide range of topics on this one, so be creative!” @claire_m_harris #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
I am really craving some laugh-out-loud children's books. I want to see hilarious picture books, side-splitting chapter books and MG, and funny, cute YA. Also includes graphic novels!
Megan Carroll @MeganACarrollI’d really like to find a really funny and touching family drama set somewhere regional - I’m thinking like East is East or Billy Elliot? Some kind of culture/class/gender clash. If you’re writing something like this send it my way pleaseeeee. #submissions #wishlist
Just FYI, I am still looking for this. I’d love a big messy Asian family drama, in particular. #mswl
Rachel Mann @rachelphilippaWhile we're all locked up reading and writing / glued to social media, I thought I might do a thread about the kinds of submissions I'm looking for, because it worked pretty well last time...
My submissions are now reopen – #mswl below. Could be v. crudely summarised as: minoritized voices & stories/ creepy/ funny/ weird/ playful/ radical/ internationalist/ commercial middle-grade/ bold YA/ non-white genre fic/ bold adult non-fic/ anything else you like. Send away!
3) High-concept YA contemporary or contemporary-with-a-twist, especially if it comes with an irreverent, self-referentially funny voice. Sarcastic or endearingly self-deprecating humor to the front of the line. I love a protagonist who feels like a co-conspirator.
