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.

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

#MSWL - Anything that feels high concept and cinematic in YA, whether it’s sci-fi, fantasy, or contemporary with a speculative twist. Stories with big “what if” premises.

Hello! 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

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

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
