Anything with humor that makes me actually lol is my evergreen #mswl

#MSWL: YA fiction: verse novels, serious subject books that are full of humor/candor (think Gae Polisner), female friendship stories, contemporary witches

A #MSWL request--Agents, I regularly get YA manuscripts featuring gay boys and lots of humor. (Yay!) But I'd also really really love to see funny LGBTQ+ stories with a female POV. 🙏

Hey #MSWL: Am seeking a great love story with dimension, humor, and a strong commercial hook. Think ONE DAY or THE LIGHT WE LOST, but not necessarily a weepy. I am esp eager to read #ownvoices stories or underrepresented narratives in this space.

Also I’ve seen some wonderful millennial fiction projects lately just bursting with humor and heart—please keep sending those my way! #mswl #a #f #wf

I'd love to see more contemporary mysteries with sympathetic protagonists, ordinary people with good humor who are pushed into dark situations. Think Rear Window or Tana French's The Witch Elm. #mswl

Light-hearted coming of age MG fantasy. Includes strong relationship themes and silly humor. #mswl

I would very much like a middle grade novel about the (unknown) daughter of Hades and Persephone. #MSWL (something humorous like Percy Jackson please, but obvi not set in that same world).

And now I am reminded of my love MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING and I want that but in a YA. #MSWL

OMG someone for the love of all give me this. ANY CULTURAL. But this beautiful and humorous.

Laura Crockett @LECrockett · Apr 22

YA romcoms are my jam. Always have been. I want to see more STEM, fun jobs, and unique hobbies. DON’T DATE ROSA SANTOS, WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, ROYALS, and ALEX, APPROXIMATELY are perfect examples of voice, humor, and substance in contemp YA romcoms! #mswl
