I updated my #MSWL listing now that I'm looking for adult fiction too. Nutshell: commercial, escapist, fun or thrilling reads in MG, YA and adult. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/elan…
My wheelhouse tends to be middle grade, YA and women's fiction, both ABA and CBA. In women's fiction, I'm looking ONLY for interesting hooks ... like sure divorce revenge, but like with a sailing race & bet involved like in @Talicktweets Beware the Mermaids. #MSWL
It's #MSWL Day, so I'll post a few items on my wish list. I'm still eager to find indigenous authors with authentic stories from PB to adult. I'd like more contemporary MG & YA by diverse voices, including LGBTQ+, but not issue books. #WritingCommunity #amquerying #amagenting

I've updated my #MSWL page for their great new platform and look forward to queries - especially if it's a multicultural love story, a
BIPOC perspective on history (fiction or nonfiction), a thriller in an unusual time and place...
Happy #MSWL Day! 👇🤗 manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/Jess…

Picture Book, Graphic Novel, Middle Grade, Young Adult, Adult Fiction, Essay Collections, Memoir, Poetry, Journalistic Nonfiction

Things I'm craving when I'm open to #queries or subs from events are #YA that feel like a @thisissigrid or @maisiehpeters song - gritty, catchy, & oh-so-relatable, but w/ comic relief too - & a light-hearted, laugh-out-loud funny #MG a la Friday Barnes by @raspratt.
In MG I'm looking for fantasy only! While I love charming, pacey adventure stories, I'd love something steeped in fairytale. I grew up reading a lot of Cornelia Funke & would love something with that tone.
Stuti Telidevara @StutiTelidevaraHi #amquerying writers! Since today is #MSWL day, here's what I'm looking for right now 🧵
A quick overview: I'm at @ParkandFine building a list of select middle grade, YA, and adult genre fiction. You can check out my full MSWL post here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/stut…
MG: stories highlighting the beauty of kids going through difficult things and complicated family dynamics; experiences of first love and crushes esp of queer kids discovering themselves; misfits finding connection, friendship, and the stirrings of desire.
MIDDLE GRADE—I’d love to find more middle grade. I love mysteries, historical, magic-tinged, verse novels. Some of my favorites: NO ORDINARY THING, THE ELEPHANT’S GIRL, BROWN GIRL DREAMING, and THE DOLLHOUSE MURDERS. #MSWL
GRAPHIC NOVELS—I’d love to work on more graphic novels, from MG to YA to Adult. I’m open to taking a look at anything here. Try me! Some of my favorite GNs: PUMPKINHEADS, BATTER ROYALE, THE PRINCESS AND THE DRESSMAKER, PASHMINA, MEASURING UP, ISLA TO ISLAND. #MSWL
I’m going to post a more detailed #MSWL thread soon, but in the meantime—here’s a big picture overview of what I’m looking for this year! ✨
I'm still dying for projects by Indigenous authors in PB, MG, YA, or adult: contemporary romance, romcom, thriller, mystery, or suspense. #MSWL #WritingCommunity
- contemporary, slice-of-life stories with an abundance of middle school drama
- light fantasy adventures and folktales
- sister stories, friendship breakups, first crushes
I would love more MG fantasy in my inbox #MSWL 😊 also romance (adult not YA)
"Seeking 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."
In MG & YA (incl GNs by Author-Illustrators):
•Diverse contemporary stories and romcoms
•Grounded sub-genres like horror or mysteries
•Novels by marginalized writers w/ stories yet told
•Stories that take you on an adventure and an emotional roller coaster all at once
Bob’s Burgers is such a comfort show for me. I’d love to see more sibling dynamics like Louise, Gene & Tina’s and more MG characters with Louise’s fearlessness, humour, and sarcasm #MSWL
