“LGBTQIA+ novel in the vein of ONE DAY (high concept, unique structure, deep and sweeping love story).” @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
(Note: Carly will be reopening to queries July 1st!)
Ashley Hearn 🕷 Preorder FOREST OF SOULS (6/23)! @AshleyHearnI've officially updated my MSWL profile to reflect what I'm looking for at Peachtree Publishing! It's changed a bit—particularly regarding stories that skew toward the younger end of the YA market—so take note!
I'm especially on the lookout for high-concept stories w/ a standout voice, and strong coming of age themes that speak strongly to teen issues, without those issues defining the plot.
In all submissions, I'm prioritizing inclusive, diverse stories and marginalized voices. #MSWL
Trisha de Guzman @trishadegLike many of us in these strange times, I’ve been taking comfort in books. And it’s made me think of the kinds of stories I want to champion.
Most of this won’t be a surprise, but for what it’s worth, here’s my current #MSWL:
- high-concept, darkly comic modern fables with literary writing and crossover appeal like THE PISCES or GEEK LOVE
- eerie and atmospheric fantasies inspired by non-Western mythology
- sweet contemporary rom-coms about QPOC main characters
Here is my #mswl darleyandersonblog.com/2020/02/25/mee… 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.
I ALWAYS forget to mention this, so thanks @samanthashnh for jogging the noggin!
I would LOVE women’s fiction featuring early 20s-early 20s womyn who are POC and queer POC! Particularly, black womyn. Something fresh & high-concept! #mswl
Oh and always on my #MSWL:
FRESH. HIGH-CONCEPT. HOOKS.
Give me an element we've not really seen before: men who have a secret romance book club, pride & prejudice in a modern NYC burlesque club. Think new and surprising.
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
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
Peter Knapp @petejknappHello! I'm looking to find some great projects while I'm home with lots (and lots) of reading time. Here's a quick #MSWL rundown: a thread.
#MSWL - MIDDLE GRADE. Any and all middle grade! I am hungry for it: standalone contemporary, sweeping fantasy series, sci-fi, horror, you name it. I’d love something high concept, like CITY OF EMBER, NEVERMOOR, ARU SHAH & THE END OF TIME, etc.

Let's try that again! Writers! During this quagmire of a time, maybe you want to check out my #MSWL ? I'd love a story to sweep me off my feet, away from (gestures) all of this manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/magg…
I'm ALWAYS looking for high concept, trope-filled #YA rom-coms. (Who else saw THE THING ABOUT HARRY??)
And I would give my heart for a #YA contemporary with all the feels of SEX EDUCATION--authentic voice, offbeat aesthetic, HUMOR, and a killer ensemble. #mswl
