I'd also like a MG realistic/contemporary series. Something like Jason Reynold's TRACK series. I'd also be super excited to find brilliant literary standalone in MG. Something like WHEN YOU REACH ME or THE THING ABOUT LUCK. #mswl
I'm also searching for a MG series: something big & fun! It could be set in our world or a secondary world fantasy. I'd love it to be fun & perhaps funny. Ideally it has a high concept, but most important to me is that it has that page-turning quality & irresistible voice. #mswl
Hello! I remain excited to sign up new MG & YA authors in 2019! I love anything from quiet middle grade standalones to high concept YA series, and everything in-between, so if you're querying MG or YA, please consider sending my way! A thread with some specific #mswl items...
I don’t get a lot of nonfiction in my inbox, but I would love to see more. Especially for YA & MG. I like baseball, sports in general, food, cooking, baking, lgbt+ studies, and little known women of history. Please send me more NF! #mswl

Shaun 🏳️🌈 Preorder Brave Face @ShaunieDarkoQueer books can be light and funny and still be important. Queer books don't have to focus on queer pain to matter.
These are the books I love across MG (especially!) and also YA. #MSWL
As a huge astronomy buff myself, and in lieu of the first image of a black hole being released, I would love to get some more #YA and #MG submissions with characters who have a passion for fields in STEM. THE LAST TIME WE SAY GOODBYE is a perfect example of this #MSWL #amagenting
jem zero @jem_zero@LindaEpstein Clarification question: Are you exclusively considering #OwnVoices Jewish characters? My contemporary fantasy WIP has a disabled/queer main who is Jewish. I am physically disabled & queer like the character, but while I have Jewish family, I am not personally Jewish.
I'm currently open to middle grade and YA submissions. If you think your manuscript fits what I'm looking for, send it. You can go to #MSWL or their website, to see what I'm interested in. I'm not exclusively looking for anything.
Looking at sales reports this morning and yo. The appetite for funny illustrated middle grade is HIGH and not stopping. Capt Underpants: 1997; Dork Diaries: 2001; Wimpy Kid: 2007. We're just about due for another breakout series. If you're writing it send it to me. #MSWL
