My #MSWL these days: Fiction: Adult Suspense, YA contemporary (any subgenre), YA and MG Graphic Novels.
Nonfiction: Pop Culture, or Narrative Nonfiction that reads like a novel, but is 100% researched. I remain open to other stuff, but the above is what I really want.
“I’d love to see more YA or MG illustrated nonfiction or graphic novels about women’s rights, reproductive health, and adjacent topics (pop culture included).” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
“Middle grade animal stories like Pax by Sara Pennypacker, Silverwing by Kenneth Oppel, Bunnicula by Deborah and James Howe, and Santa Paws by Nicholas Edwards.” @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation
Some #MSWL things:
1) MG fantasy, please! Especially myth-based, w/a strong focus on character, & a beautiful world/setting.
2) Contemporary MG/YA with LGBTQ+ characters.
3) MG graphic novels!
4) Underrepresented voices.
5) YA or MG that deals w/grief and/or mental health.
Hannah VanVels 🪴🌙 @hannahvanvelsGood morning, #amquerying #amwriting community!
PitMad may be over. There were almost half a million pitches, which is an overwhelming turnout! Because of that, I know I 💯 missed some things.
Query me anyways!
I'm particularly eager to build up my MG and Adult lists, but I can't resist a good PB or YA.
I'm perennially on the lookout for BIPOC, LGBT, and Neurodiverse creators in all categories.

Hiii Writers!! 🥳 ❤️I’ve been looking at what’s on my list right now.
So I’d love to see more Mysteries, Suspense & Thrillers in my box! If you write from MG, YA, to Adult.
Please check my #MSWL here manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/anal…

#pitmad #mswl Looking for Amish Romance, Inspirational Romance, RomCom, Western Romance, Cozy Mysteries, Mysteries, Suspense, Picture Books, MG, True Crime, Cookbooks. blueridgeagency.com and mention #pitmad for who referred you.
Only #YA and #MG. Whodunit mysteries like Truly Devious (riddles!). Closed door thrillers/mysteries. Witchy stories like Undead Girl Gang and The Craft, grounded in the real world. #mswl
Always looking for BIPOC writers!
If you have it and I miss it, please send anyway!
As in adult fiction, my YA interests are broad, so please feel encouraged to try me with anything contemporary for teen readers, including rom-coms. Select works of MG fiction will also be considered. #MSWL
“Stories that celebrate neurodiversity, from authors who are themselves neurodivergent, both in fiction and non-fiction, Middle Grade, Young Adult, and Adult.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
(By the way I would still hella love a teen rom-com or fun MG mystery set in the modern Tower of London featuring children of Yeoman Warders who live there — the curfew shenanigans alone would be gold!) #MSWL
My list is pretty fully of geniuses at the moment but there are some things I've been wanting to sign for an age--maybe you can help me out? #MSWL
- adult space opera
- MG mystery (sff/contemp)
- series-friendly GN
- YA/MG horror GN
- anything like IN OTHER LANDS, pls, I'm dying
Peter Knapp @petejknappHello, 2021, and hello to writers seeking representation this year. Happy New Year! Here's what I'm looking for...a new year, a new #mswl thread...
Hello, everyone: I did a #mswl tweet at the start of this year, and it's all still true. I'm particularly excited to find YA thrillers and mysteries, and middle grade anything: series, contemporary, fantasy, etc.
I'm open to submissions for the month of May! Send me #PictureBooks, #chapterbooks, #middlegrade & #youngadult novels. Please look at my #MSWL threads so you can query smartly. All queries go to: QueryTracker.com/LindaEpstein

Joanna Moult @JoannaMoultI'm loving the #WMPitch tweets. But there are SO many & it's quite overwhelming so I feel I may have missed a gem. If you think I might be a good fit for your work please send it to me. All submission details are here skylark-literary.com. See tweet 👇 below for my wishlist
My #MSWL is for funny, warm-hearted MG or an engaging, absorbing MG adventure, partic told from fresh perspectives. In YA, a super-fresh hook & vivid characters, whether with contemp realistic setting or with fantasy/magical elements. #OwnVoices are v. imp to me #WMPitch
