#MSWL if you have a story set in alternate Victorian/modern England that has elements of secret societies, magical realism, dark academia, or crime, please send it to me. England is preferable, but I'm open to other locations :)
*YA/NA contemporary including royalty! Desperately looking for a book that gives me the same impression as the tv series The Royals
*YA magical realism with witches (think of The Secret Circle)
*YA/NA sweet romance with a feel of the Love, Rosie movie
*NA cozy mystery
Hi new friends and old, thanks for the well wishes & support. Since it's pub lunch official...I'm thrilled to share the #mswl of my dreams and I hope to see some cool submissions soon! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/jenn…
Kim Cusack @KJCBooks12@ajones_litagent Hi Ms. Jones - I just checked out your MSWL for middle grade and in the Fiction section you mention being open to Fantasy but not under the MG heading. I'm wondering if you are open to MG fantasy as well? Thanks so much.
Spring 22 #MSWL:
MG/YA thrillers, rom-coms (fresh hook, please!), magical realism, & under-repped voices
Investigative journalism for MG/YA
BIPOC or #ownvoices PBs
Sub guidelines: upstartcrowliterary.com/submissions
#amwriting #kidlit #WritingCommunity #amquerying
For the UK #amquerying crowd: NOW would be a very good time to send me fun contemporary MG, magical realism MG, YA romance, YA horror or other YA/crossover SFF.
—Magic realism in its traditional meaning as a movement of Latin American and Caribbean or African fiction.
—Queer genre YA of any kind, especially from QBIPOC.
—Jewish fantasy, including second-world, or fantasy featuring or built around a minority religeon
I'm not your ideal editor for high fantasy worlds, but I do love grounded fantasy, magical realism, retellings, time travel, and speculative twists in both MG & YA
Mona Kanin @KaninMonaQuery Alert: Is anyone working on a piece of beautifully crafted MG fiction — realistic or with a touch of sff or magical realism — about a child whose favorite book is about to be banned from all shelves, private and public? querymanager.com/query/MKanin
Elizabeth Lee @EleeReadsYOUNG ADULT:
- BIPOC rom-coms, friend-coms, and coming-of-age stories not exclusively centered around POC trauma
- Sweeping historical fiction / magical realism, especially stories about non-white history
- Speculative thrillers ala The Thousandth Floor & We Were Liars
Since it's a new year, here's my #MSWL again! I can't wait to find some gems in 2022, and am especially looking for the below YA books. ⬇️
--QTPOC romance with banter, emotionally complex, flawed characters, and ✨ intersectionality ✨
--High-concept speculative fiction examining current issues (esp horror & magical realism)
--Sweeping historical fiction about untold movements, events, or individuals
Noah Grey Rosenzweig @ng_rosenzweigA #MSWL mini thread since I'm just dipping a toe into the querying world. 🧵
I love all fiction, with a soft spot for magical realism (think 100 YEARS, of course!). Lit fic, spec fic, and sci-fi are also high on my list. Fantasy like BLACK LEOPARD. Psych fiction that slowly unravels, like RED PILL. And not always, but sometimes, a great love story.
