Disney has been supplying some of my favorites for ages, but I can't stop listening to the soundtrack so....

#MSWL for MG with #Encanto vibes! And also, obviously, all the Moana and Coco vibes too!

#MG
•Feel good adventure stories amongst friends like the Goonies.
•Quests with female protagonists that display bravery and perseverance that’s not in spite of gender.
•Solving age old mysteries that no one thought were real. Bring me prepubescent Indiana Jones.

For #MG, I want whimsy. Regale me with lush world building and:
•Stories that explore magical family history (i.e., the Addams Family, 100 Cupboards, etc.)
•Anything having to do with the sea besides pirates!

WRITERS! I'm excited to see what the new year will bring to my inbox. If you write YA/MG/PB/NF, please check out my #MSWL to see if we might be a good fit. (a little Elmo energy because I'm enjoying Elmo/Rocco a little bit too much) bit.ly/smaurermswl

Of course, one of our favorite things it to be surprised. So if you've written a middle grade or young adult novel you're excited about, or an adult fantasy or horror, we'd love to hear from you! #MSWL

We also love high-concept, high-stakes middle grade fantasy like AMARI & THE NIGHT BROTHERS, ARU SHAH, NEVERMOOR, and TRISTAN STRONG. #MSWL

Alright, here's a *brief* list of what I'm looking for this year. More MG/YA! Send me all your contemporary rom-coms; grounded and mythology-inspired fantasies; surreal, atmospheric horror; historical fiction set in Asia, and anything that might make me laugh-cry. #MSWL

MIDDLE GRADE:
--Queer coming of age with strong friendships and maybe first love
--High-spirited adventures, realistic OR fantasy
--Realistic fiction about a character dealing with mental health difficulties and finding a light at the end of the tunnel

Hi, agent friends :) It's about that time: New Year, New #MSWL 📚✒️

I edit picture books, middle grade novels, and YA novels/nf, as well as select graphic novels across genres.

I prioritize intersectional stories that center BIPOC characters & their unique, varied experiences.

Would love Horror that pulls from non-European legends, too. Myths or superstitions and whatnot that feed into this creep factor

For MG, horror that feels realistic to kids. Not something that seems to push things too far

Also HORROR! Mostly just MG and Adult, not YA.

No blood/guts/gore, but psychological and suspenseful.

Love gothic horror
ghosts and ghoulies welcome
Think things like Mexican Gothic, Doll Bones, Oculus, etc.

I would love to see MG with the magical, joyful energy in Jingle Jangle, specifically in the song The Square Root Of Impossible. #mswl
