Writing humor is difficult because everyone has an idea of what is funny. For me #mswl like Dave Barry, Modern Family, BBTheory, British, Mr.Bean. Smart, sharp, quick humor. Read Jenks and you'll get it. If you have it, send it to me please.
• Horror and supernatural fiction that radically represents and explores queer, female, and BIPOC rage
• Books that slide adeptly between humor and poignancy—if a book can make me laugh on one page and cry on the next, it wins my whole heart!
• Zany middle grade humor with a big heart, in the vein of Dog Man—I’d particularly like to explore careers outside of policing that nonetheless lend themselves to multiple adventures over the course of a series
I love humor. I don't care how dark the book is, I want to have a moment to laugh while I'm reading. If your PNR or UF has humor and fits these guidelines: cityowlpress.com/queries/#mysti…

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!
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
