Hey agents! I updated my #MSWL for the New Year - I'm accepting YA, MG, and PB, looking for character-driven SF/F and contemporary stories. I'd love to hear from you, hop on the phone, or grab coffee sometime! nicolefiorica.wordpress.com/mswl/
I see a few MG queries in my box, but I'd LOVE more!!! If you're a MG author, query me at: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. Paste the query and first five pages in the body of the email. Thanks! Bonus points if your voice stands out! #MGLit #MiddleGrade #MSWL
John Cusick @johnmcusickHi gang, I'm pretty much caught up on queries, so time for a #MSWL thread:
Firstly, middle-grade! Adventure, suspense, quirkiness, heart. @marinacohen, @Qsosnaspear, @anndeeellis, @cmheidicker, @josephinewrites, and @jerameykraatz are some of my MG people, and I'd love to work with more brilliant humans like them. #MSWL
I’m seeking: MG & YA fiction in all genres - YA w/ mystery or romance subplots. Adult contemporary, romance, psych thrillers, horror & suspense. I love: books featuring drama, social issues, animals, Canadian settings, ownvoices. Pls submit via Query Tracker. #amquerying #mswl
It's January 15 & that means I'm now open to queries again -- and hungry to find some new talent for the new year! Send me your lyrical MG fantasy, your heartfelt MG contemp, your weird and/or witchy YA, your adult or YA romcoms, and anything else amazing. #mswl
If I missed your #IWSGPit pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. Adult: SFF, thriller, cont. romance, & mystery. YA: thriller, SFF, horror, mystery, & contemporary. MG: SFF, mystery, contemporary, & horror. #diversity #MSWL #ownvoices querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.)com
Hi all! Here is my current #mswl! In short, I'm focused on developing four areas of my clientele in 2019: (1) PB author-illustrators; (2) MG fiction; (3) Graphic novels; and (4) Nonfiction across all kid lit genres. Hit me up, queryers! cleliagore.com/2019/01/11/201…
Hello #amquerying /#writingcommmunity - are you getting ready to submit this wknd? My inbox is open for 2019 and I’d love to see your stories! I’m open to MG / YA in all forms & select adult fiction. More info can be found on the @MetamorphLitAg website and QueryTracker! #mswl
Alex Sammon @alex_sammonWhat happens when Walmart, Amazon, and all the world's retail giants move into one tiny town? I went to Elwood, IL, to report on the precarious, tax-abated hell that is living in warehouseland, where all our stuff is stored.
#MSWL: any MG or YA set in "warehouseland."
Let's kick off 2019 with #mswl! I'd love to see:
- LGBTQ+ middle grade and YA, any genre, any time period!
- Contemporary YA with a spec twist (think Still Life with Tornado or Dig)
- Literally ANYTHING that evokes Tillie Walden's On a Sunbeam
- Graphic novels or memoirs
