“I am on the hunt for non-fiction in MG. Show me glimpses of history that haven’t been taught to younger students before, collections of pieces, anthologies.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Tia Rose Mele @TiatheTigerI'm really fascinated by the World's Fairs. I'm happy to look at MG or YA set during any of the World's Fairs.
I will say that's pretty much the only historical I'm interested in right now.
Please send me your Black and trans characters. OwnVoices preferred. MG, YA, or adult.
Morning, y'all! An update to my #MSWL:
I'm no longer accepting queries for picture books or chapter books. I'm going to focus on MG, YA, & adult fic & nonfic. Check out my fresh new list & see if we might be a match.
“Middle Grade: a protagonist with immigrant parents, an animal story (NOT talking animals), anything with an environmental theme, inventive chapter book series.” @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation

Particularly looking for MG right now. Recent favorites: FROM THE DESK OF ZOE WASHINGTON (so many happy/sad tears) and SO DONE (love alternating POV). All-time favorites: FRONT DESK, THE LINE TENDER, THE WAR THAT SAVED MY LIFE and THE STARS BENEATH OUR FEET. #mswl
Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRothMy consultation spots for Black #kidlit authors are now full. But I will add more every month (no end date planned) and post the links when available. Meanwhile, I'm always happy to chat on Twitter for general questions. elana.me/consultations
And not to conflate things, I have never stopped looking for Black voices to add to my list of authors. If you write fun, escapist stories for MG or YA, I'm here! Currently hungry for rom-coms and light fantasy, but open to an adventure. elana.me/wish-list #mswl
I'll be reading through all my #PitDark query requests today but please, #writingcommunity, keep sending me your #horror, #thrillers, #suspense for both #YA and #MG! Especially if they're #ownvoices! I'm hongry! ;) #MSWL #amquerying
- gentle contemporary romances about queer young people falling in love for the first time
- historical fiction highlighting overlooked events or individuals from marginalized groups
- contemporary novels about POC immigrants/second generation Americans
Closing to queries on 6/1 (until 7/1!), so I’m sending out the #MSWL bat signal. I’m LONGING for a realistic MG that hits me w/ ALL THE FEELS reminiscent of Erin Entrada Kelly, Laurel Snyder, Kelly Yang, Kat Yeh, & Brandy Colbert. Fresh & voicey, esp from marginalized creators.
