rebecca mix says drink water @rebeccarmixI’ve never been much of a rereader, but I’m rereading the Gregor The Overlander books for the first time. I was completely obsessed with in elementary school, and omg, this feels like coming home. 😭
#MSWL I’d LOVE a MG adventure story comped to Gregor The Overlander
So happy to be featured in @scbwi's July newsletter! I'm actively taking on new clients--check out the interview to see what's high on my #mswl and learn more about me as an agent: scbwi.org/scbwi-exclusiv… #amagenting #querytip
Between Pride and Copa América, I've got two new #mswl. The first: send me your MG/YA own voices projects starring genderqueer, non-binary, and trans protags. I'm especially trying to get more transmasc representation out there
I had such an amazing time at #alaac19 and in New York! After wonderful conversations with my TBA colleagues and many editors, a few updates to my #MSWL: coming of age literary MG, young illustrated MG, and (still!) contemporary YA, especially diverse voices and/or a rom com.
Hey gang I'm on the hunt for more amazing MG. Looking for touching and thoughtful stories a la @JoKnowles, @josephinewrites, and @kellyyanghk, as well as quirky and surprising a la @Qsosnaspear, @TraceyBaptiste and @mollybrooks. #MSWL
#MSWL Would love to find women's fiction, thrillers and Middle Grade submissions that incorporate popular science and STEM themes. Love richly evocative stories that have a strong sense of the natural world.
Jessica Russak-Hoffman @HoffmanJess@LindaEpstein Staying open to Jewish YA in case I have anything to send you while you're closed?
I'll be closed to all submissions except for two very specific things I've been looking for for years:
1. a queer feminist re-telling of the Book of Esther
2. a MG or YA set in the Shanghai ghetto (Hongkou)
This is a fun one!! Thanks @Write4Kids for the fun interview!! #bookstagram #kidsbooks #mswl #SundayMorning #SundayThoughts #kidlit #reading #AMJOY #BeKind #History #ownvoices #diversity #SundayMotivation #workhardplayhard #tbt #fun!
Kelly 📚 @LitAgentKellyQUICK, before my authors send me all of their current WIPs that I have to edit 😂:
I’m doing a #MSWL thread of things I really, REALLY WANT RIGHT NOW! And if you see one that’s basically yours and it’s already in my box, tell me and I’ll mark it. ❤️😁

Alex Slater @abuckslaterWhat a week. Gods of #MSWL: send me YA & MG that burns down white supremacy, misogyny, homophobia. Books to beat back the racists. Send me what terrifies them the most: your heart & humanity. More empathy today. Less intolerance tomorrow.
