And finally if you have chapter book or middle grade book that uses humour, adventure, fantasy, sci-fi or any combination thereof to help little kids explore their big feelings like in COCO and OVER THE MOON, please send me your work. #mswl

In YA, i still love most genres and everything from light to dark. I love hope and depth and humor and stories that can change lives, whether from joy or empathy and validation. More specifically:
1. Super high concept contemporary and speculative contemporary
#mswl cont ⬇️
More specifically in MG, i love a great, accessible voice and humor across the spectrum, but also more serious literary stories. MORE specifically:
1. Madcap adventures in any genre

Been meaning to mention that I have an editor #MSWL page a la @ManuscriptWList.
#Writers: this may also be a helpful starting point to see what a #literaryagent is looking for in #submissions.
hi all ~ putting out a call for #mswl items I want to see more of:
(especially featuring marginalized POVs & casts by marginalized writers!)
• contemporary romance/ rom-coms in YA & Adult with wit, heat, humor & heart
• thrillers/mysteries/suspense in YA & Adult 1/?
Okay, time to share my #MSWL:
Children's, YA, & Pop Culture Nonfiction are my 🍞&🧈. I love stories of hope and humor, a good rom-com, strong female leads, and magic of all sorts! Big fan of LGBT+ and BIPOC joy. I don't love murder. DM me for query guidelines!
#mswl picture book & graphic novel creators: If you are an illustrator who writes and illustrates with heart and humor, we'd love to consider your picture book dummy and sample art or graphic novel. You can submit at QueryManager.com/Henandink
Alexandra Sehulster @ASehulsterI've spent the last month formulating my 2021 #MSWL (agented). I look forward to reading the great projects that this year brings! 1/7
-a big, gorgeous love story that rips your heart out
-voice-driven fiction for millennials and Gen Z that encompasses the social, romantic, and professional dynamics of the generation, preferrably with a light touch or dash of humor #MSWL 2/7
The new book of my dreams is a Brooklyn 99-esque romance with all the things I love about that show (diversity, inclusion, humor, creativity, healthy relationships, etc., etc.) and no actual police work. I NEED IT RIGHT NOW! #MSWL
I grew up watching soap operas, & loved You Had Me at Hola. Would love to see women's fiction based in world of soaps (can be behind the scenes/in front of camera/after leaving spotlight). Something w/ humor and heart but feels authentic & respectful of the industry. #MSWL
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.
(Memoir continued) I love books with humor and interesting perspectives, and enjoy a big personality or narration to go with the contents of the memoir. I do not want conservative or conservative leaning memoirs. #mswl
Detective Pikajew, Esq. @clapifyoulikemeHi I would like to know why I don't already have at least five seasons of this hit romcom series???? them.us/story/usa-cana… pic.twitter.com/b8vXpK1vVh
Rival female hockey team captains fall in love, but WAIT what about the upcoming championship where their teams must play each other!?
Someone please write this YA with tons of humor and love and joy and send it to me as soon as possible!!! Ok, thanks!
On the lighter side, upmarket fiction & beach reading sans the beach! Historical fiction, romantic comedies, family sagas, I'm open to pretty much anything with humor and heart
At the moment, I'd say I want to see YA and MG that leads with joy. Falling in love. Doing something exciting. Exploring new worlds. Kids with quirky passions. Humor. Families (of all configurations) that love each other. #MSWL
