I would love to find a compelling story with a transfemme/trans woman protagonist.
Any genre. MG, YA, Adult
(although #YA is forever my great love)
If you are a trans woman writer and think I could be a good fit, please #query me. #MSWL
Here’s some specific #MSWL items:
- Contemporary MG in the vein of Kelly Yang, Corey Ann Haydu, Tae Keller
- Tweens + teens making messy decisions like in Babysitters Club + Never Have I Ever
- Contemporary MG + YA graphic novels (my list is already full of speculative)
The categories I’m looking for, in order of priority, are:
- YA and MG graphic novels from author-illustrators (one person)
- MG and YA prose novels
- Nonfiction for kids and teens
- Chapter books and picture books from author-illustrators (one person)
YA/MG: Kids with chronic conditions, especially invisible ones, grappling with new diagnoses or figuring out how to navigate old ones in the face of growing up and gaining more responsibility for self-care is a space that has room for growth in this category. #mswl
#MSWL a beautifully written PB/MG/YA touching upon and shedding light on Korean American history. Something like one of my favorite films, 말모이 Mal-Mo-E, weaving humor, nuanced characters, complicated family dynamics beating w/love, & a spirit of resistance against the odds.
For both #mg and #ya, would love historical fiction, especially stories not centered in Western history or culture.
#mswl for #ya:
--fresh "inspired by" takes on familiar tales, myths or classics, rather than retellings
--I'd love an historical novel based on the Trung Sisters.
My #mg Heart Book is a book like Gemeinhart's THE MIDNIGHT CHILDREN--fantastic writing, high stakes, dark and creepy yet funny and joyful (all the feels), with character's I want to root for and know.
It's #MSWL day at @TheTobiasAgency! When I reopen to queries, shortly, here are some things I will be looking for: in #MG, I'm still on the hunt for an atmospheric ghost story with universal character themes. Think DOLL BONES or Linda Urban's ALMOST THERE AND ALMOST NOT
It's #mswl for @TheTobiasAgency! My wishlist and other info can always be found at sarahnfisk.com, but I thought I'd highlight a couple things.
I'm especially looking to find adult romance, contemporary ya, and some fun MG right now. Not that I'm not open to others!
It's #MSWL day for @TheTobiasAgency so I'm going to share some details about projects I'm excited to find in my inbox.
But first, a quick note: I'm open to MG, YA, & Adult titles. I do try to keep my MSWL as up to date as possible manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/ann-…
In all the excitement of the new year I realized that I don’t have my #mswl posted anywhere! If your project fits any of the below, I hope you #amquerying folks will consider me! Query guidelines can be found on the New Leaf website. Keep scrolling for specifics!
...I am so hungry for immersive, beautifully written, non-European YA fantasy, and for cozy/slice-of-life SFF for MG/YA (prose or graphic novel), that for now I will allow queriers for these genres to bypass my usual requirements. #MSWL
Illustrated graphic novels and graphic nonfiction by individual author/illustrators. MG, YA, Adult. The art needs to cleverly utilize the comics storytelling format. I’m not looking at script-only submissions at the moment. #MSWL
