Opening day is this week so here’s your regular reminder that if you have a baseball themed YA/MG/women’s fiction/romance PLEASE send it to me. #mswl (and I’m especially interested if it deals with MiLB!)
I love girls with hard outer shells and soft, gooey centers!
Still looking for MG--found families, generational stories, fantasy, friend gang adventures like STRANGER THINGS or THE GOONIES, siblings, and besties growing apart.
I would love a story (I'm leaning toward middle grade) where a student takes on the school dress code. Dress codes are notoriously discriminatory (both sexist and racist) and I would love to see that tackled in fiction. #MSWL
Amanda Sinatra @Amanda_Sinatra@Lynnette_Novak @JulieShattuck Are you looking for specific genre to read?
Seeking: Adult: suspense/thrillers, fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary romance, rom-com, & mysteries. YA: suspense/ thrillers, sci-fi, fantasy, horror, mysteries, historical, & contemporary. MG: Sci-fi, fantasy, contemporary, adventure, mysteries, horror, & humor. #diversity #MSWL
What am I looking for right now? Lots and lots of middle grade manuscripts. I can’t get enough. Send ‘em all to me!!! Paste query and 1st 5 pages in body of email and send to: querylynnette(@) theseymouragency (dot) com. #mswl #amquerying #WritingCommunity
I am still closed to unsolicited queries. I will be open to middle grade & young adult manuscript submissions only from April 1st through June 30th, 2019. Please check #MSWL to see what I'm looking for.
I have been asking for/yearning for a middle grade or YA story set in the Shanghai Jewish Ghetto during World War 2 for NINE YEARS. I REALLY want this. If you have written that story, please send it to me! #MSWL
When I open in April, I will be open ONLY to middle grade and young adult manuscripts. Please note that means I am NOT open to picture book submissions. They will be deleted unread. Sorry. #MSWL
Linda Epstein @LindaEpsteinHere's the deal: I'll be open to queries from April 1st - June 30th. If I've specifically told you to send me something sooner, then send it sooner (for example the #highlightsjewishkidlit peeps). I'll do a #mswl thread within the next few days. Please RT & let your friends know!
When I open in April, I am looking for MG & YA stories featuring Jewish main characters, by Jewish authors, including realistic contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi, LGBTQ+, romcoms, secular stories, spiritual stories, & especially stories from Jewish people of color. #MSWL
Shannon Hale @haleshannonBlack cartoonists and writers and creators, please! Please make middle grade graphic novels starring Black girls! There's a HUGE lack. (and middle grade is SUCH a wonderful space and age of readers...join us...you'll never want to leave) twitter.com/varianjohnson/…
I would love to see these books pop up in my inbox, agents. #MSWL
/_\! @babakganooshWhy hasn’t anyone ever made a police procedural that takes place in an action movie universe? Like the detectives are investigating the criminals at the same time the vigilante is murdering them by the dozen to avenge his family.
If you can find a way to make this MG or YA, consider this on my #mswl
Camryn Garrett @dancingofpensGive me coming of age movies where black girls get to be horrible and funny like in LADY BIRD or where they get to be weird and funny like in BOOKSMART or where they get to be cute and fall in love like in TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE
I don’t make movies, but I do make books & I’m very much looking for this in MG & YA #mswl
If you have middle grade or YA project that feels like #OneDayAtATime with all of that amazing diverse representation, please send it my way. I’ll need to fill the hole created by its cancellation. #mswl
