At the top of my April #mswl:

-YA Contemporary with a big hook
-Adult suspense or psych thrillers

I'm looking for #middlegrade and #youngadult stories. I like realistic contemporary; magical realism; well done retellings of fairytales, folklore, legends; love stories; most anything feminist af. I don't like horror, thrillers, murder mysteries, or anything super scary. #MSWL

Linda ~washing hands~ Epstein @LindaEpstein · 1 Apr 2019

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.

Last night at dinner we were discussing the idea of a MG book about a transgender child approaching a bar/bat mitzvah (or another religious gendered ceremony), one million percent #MSWL

Also, video game competitions and maybe even cons in MG! Dungeons and Dragons too? Something nerdy and feisty and showcasing kids who aren’t afraid to be who they are and ROCK. THE. WORLD. With their nerdiness. #MSWL

I’m not a cooking manuscript person, but I AM a sports person. Baseball. Dirt bikes. Paintball. Dance. Gymnastics. Girls playing in boys sports. Anyone have a female quarterback in MG? Maybe The Sandlot but for a girl? #mswl

I had asked for a MG wolf story a while ago and am still searching for it. Shapeshifters welcome, or Direwolves like in GOT! Companion. Tribal animal. Wolf anything and everything. I want it. #MSWL

In MG, I’m really looking for heartwarming stories! One in particular, if anyone has a MG about a girl at space camp, I’m all about it! #MSWL

I have a lot of YA in my box. You know what I’d love to have more of? MG (fantasy, sci-fi, and contemporary) and Adult Romance! So a few #MSWL for these two age ranges are to follow! ❤️

Really in the mood for some beautiful middle grade #MSWL

Yes, we need dark stories in MG/YA because kids need to have their problems/struggles acknowledged. But please remember to infuse hope. I want less focus on the trauma/suffering and more on successes and healing. Marginalized kids need to know they deserve happy endings #MSWL

Time flies when you're having fun! In my first 6 months of agenting I've built a client list I'm SO proud of. Here's an updated #MSWL (for the next 6 months & beyond!): author-illustrators, slice-of-life chapter book series, girly middle grade (all genres), and contemporary YA.

Tia Rose Mele @TiatheTiger · 25 Mar 2019

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!)

Quressa Thee Dragon (she/her/queen) @qnrisawesome · 25 Mar 2019

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.

Alexandra Levick @AllieLevick · 24 Mar 2019

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
