Agent friends, we did some list review yesterday, and we're looking for a fresh, high-concept MG series. Anything you're loving at the moment?! #mswl

Writers: our website is still in development but I want new submissions. #mswl 🧵:

High-concept YA - if it includes & addresses untold histories / historically marginalized characters, all the better

YA horror - ALL OF IT

Literary / commercial-literary horror - see above…

My client list is filling up, so I will be even more selective this time. My #mswl includes:
- high concept board, picture, and chapter books (new concept easily understood in just a few words)
- YA contemporary like Jenny Han and John Green (commercial but bends a bit literary).

I'm ready to read! Where are my high concept, unputdownable, story driven manuscripts? Do you have a novel I can get lost in? Any genre of adult fiction that fits the bill (sorry no erotica). This #mswl is for the #WritingCommunity #amquerying authors. Send queries my way 📚✍️💛

6) For YA, I would love a high concept thriller, something broody and moody but also tightly plotted in the fantasy/horror space (I adore "House of Hollow"!!), and heart-wrenching, emotional sci-fi like "The Ones We're Meant to Find."

2) Rom-coms with a high concept situation that can be summarized quickly and make people go "ooooh" (think You've Got Mail, The Rehearsals by @MsAnnetteMC , Dream On by Angie Hockman)

I updated my #MSWL page for the first time in... a decade? And I'm looking forward to reading some great submissions in 2024.

Agents, among other things, I'd love to find a feel-good underdog sports story to weep over and/or edit. Hit me up! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/katherine-harrison/

New year and a lightly updated #mswl . The gist is I’m always on the lookout for stories that feature joy, that have characters I fall hard for, and settings I can’t let go of.
