Dear #amwriting #amquerying community,
I'm really looking for Black witches/psychics in contemporary fantasy (adult, YA, or MG), plus size MCs, YA and adult thrillers/suspense, and please keep sending these #ownvoices LGBTQIA+ and disability rep books. #MSWL
Before I close for queries tomorrow, I wanted to get out a #mswl of what I really want to see in my inbox.
- Authors of underrepresented communities (POC, LGBTQIA+, body, neuro, disabled)
- Fat girl stories where their weight is not the plot.
- MG and YA horror.
For MG fiction, my interests fall heavily on the action-adventure scale, especially stories informed by non-western mythology and folklore. Loud and funny is a better fit than quiet and contemplative. In nonfiction, I love topics that kids—and I—can geek out about.
Hey agents! I love that I get to edit books across all age groups, but I'd love to see more middle grade in my inbox! Fantasy, contemporary, and everything in between is cool, but I have a soft spot for the laugh-out-loud variety :)
My full #mswl is here: nicolefiorica.wordpress.com/mswl/
Writers: We are now open to queries 🌙
You will find our #mswl at weaverliteraryagency.com
- YA + MG

My updated #MSWL page is up! Yay! Please be aware that some of my categories have changed. Like the addition of MG to my list and removal of adult mystery, thrillers, and suspense.
✨ATTN COMICS WRITERS ✨
Hey y’all! I’m looking for #comics #writers and #illustrators with a penchant for nonfiction writing for a great, new #graphicnovel, #middlegrade series. If you feel this is you, let’s chat. My DMs are open. Oh, and please boost!
Annual #MSWL reminder, I’m looking for:
Kid-lit stories that celebrate neurodiversity, from authors who are neurodivergent. MG + YA!
Novels and memoirs about the adoptee experience, written by adoptees.
Is that you? Query me! ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
#MSWL Alert: I'd love to see a #MG or #YA with a #climate or #environmental theme, speculative/near-future or contemporary. Bonus if it's #ownvoices from a writer of color or about an under-served community!
I'm closing to queries soon for a bit to catch up on subs.
Before I do, I'd love to see some literary-leaning horror (MG, YA, adult) in my inbox. Atmospheric horror, body horror, campy horror, autumnal horror, emotional horror—all of it.
