High Concept

Hannah Allaman @hallaman13 · Mar 31

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

On to @EmF1nn, who's hunting for love stories (platonic/romantic/big messy families); gorgeous writing with page-turning plot; high concept fiction with an arresting premise and characters to do it justice; immersive, cross-genre narrative non-fiction... bit.ly/3bnKerI

Send me your High Concept Rom Coms!!! I want:

--diverse voices!

Current #MSWL wishlist:

❤️ YA/Adult Rom Com— high concept and swoony

✨ Magical stories with fun, pacey plots - MG/YA/Adult

If your project doesn’t fall under these two categories but it is still uplifting and joyful, I’d love to see it!

I’d love to find a high concept contemporary YA with a surprising narrative device/structure. Think Fleishman Is In Trouble for a young adult/crossover audience. #MSWL

I've finally managed to compile a somewhat coherent manuscript wish list #mswl which I'll be itching to edit and add on to soon, but for now this is it! 🌈✨

FANTASY: high-concept epicness like Throne of Glass, amazing worldbuilding like Tamora Pierce does, badass princesses like She-Ra, dragons and cultures other than medieval-ish, flawed magic systems #mswl

Dying to fall for a high-concept, unputdownable contemporary. Give me super strong voice. Some kind of mystery to be solved. Dynamic character relationships. #mswl

Happy Valentine's week💘! I've been eating up contemp romance and want to bring that energy to my #mswl -- agents, hit me up with your high-concept and layered meet-cutes, esp by diverse creators. I want your YA Red White & Royal Blue, Friend Zone, Proposal, Twice in a Blue Moon!

Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski · Feb 3

Agents! I am both in a buying mood AND doing a better job in 2020 about responding to submissions quickly. Send me your YA - esp. stuff featuring characters from marginalized backgrounds, interesting formats, high-concept contemporary. #MSWL

📚Updated #mswl for 2020 📚
2019 brought a lot of great YA to my inbox, and oh how I love it, but really looking for a lot more adult fiction in 2020.
Particularly hungry for suspense and women's fiction with a high concept hook

Hi #amquerying, I have an urgent #mswl that needs to be addressed...
I am seriously lacking anything and everything in the contemporary fiction space. Romance, Realistic (nonissue books), WF, RomCom, high concept book! I need them in MG, YA, and Adult categories.

Gemma Cooper @gemma_cooper · Jan 13

That also means I can open to submissions again! Please send me your swoony YA, your high concept chapter books and all your MG: thebentagency.com/gemma-cooper

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Jan 7

I'm also dying for more fun & high concept middle grade series, like THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD & EVIL, NEVERMOOR, ESCAPE FROM MR. LEMONCELLO'S LIBRARY, MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY, etc. And as in YA, in MG: monsters. #mswl

Another thing we’re currently seeking for Amara is high-concept romantic suspense and thrillers with emotional depth and strong characters #MSWL

Tara Gilbert 🔮✨ @Literary_Tara · Jan 6

In General Fiction, I'm super picky, but would like:
- Literary Fiction by diverse authors.
- High concept Romance like RW&RB.
- Books that would fall in the NA category if it existed.
