#MSWL: #ownvoices #MG or #YA protagonists with chronic illness, pain, and/or a disability in a story not focused on that, and where no one dies--it's just a part of life. This kind of rep is important to me & I rarely see it in subs or published books.
So I found my witch writer, my pirates writer, and my ballet writer this year! WOOO!!! What am I looking for next?...
...Sci-Fi, gaming, and dystopian/futuristic sci-fi. I'm not a space opera person though! Sorry! #MSWL This goes for MG and YA! =)
#MSWL - In MG, I will say I'd love, love to find a big middle grade series, something with heart & adventure. I'd love a sweeping MG fantasy-adventure, a new take on magical schools, or something high concept, high stakes, and FUN.
Happy #MSWL day! I am going to tweet some hopes and dreams for my inbox, but the headline is: YA & MG! If you're querying YA & MG fiction, I'd be thrilled to receive your submission. @ParkandFine's submissions guidelines are here: parkfine.com/get-in-touch/
James McGowan @jamerrsonHey- I've been reading a bunch of mg lately, and I did a thing. As of 1 minute ago, I'm now open to select middle grade! I'm looking for both contemporary and humorous #middlegrade fiction. Query me here: QueryMe.Online/jmcgowan #mg #MSWL
I'd love to find two types of #middlegrade fiction: books ala Jason Reynolds and Margaret Finnegan's upcoming WE COULD BE HEROES. #mg
and books that make me laugh out loud, like Aaron Blabey, and fan favorites Wimpy Kid, Dog Man. #MSWL
Leslie Zampetti @leslie_zampetti#MSWL I’d love to see some Latinx/Jewish contemporary YA... Or a retelling of Romeo & Juliet with the protagonists both devout but different religions... Or a great MG mystery that more Mo LeBeau and less Nancy Drew & ClueCrew.
Oops! #MSWL Day is tomorrow!
Well, at least I’m on brand. I’m always the early bird! 😊🐥📚

And I have BIG plans for next year: signing more clients, selling big books, diving deeper into foreign/film/audio, attending more conferences, and finding a way to mentor or offer a paid internship.
Speaking of new clients, my #MSWL has been updated! Yes, I’m looking for graphic novels now! Plus, a continued call for commercial YA, literary MG, and PB author-illustrators. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/laur…

On a whim I decided to watch this movie on Netflix called Ramen Shop and it's an amazing story about culture, family, love, and (of course) food.
Now I'd like a YA or MG story that explores the bonds of family and culture (especially a blended one) through food! #mswl
