Everything listed on our website still applies, but I really want to see contemporary GNs in MG & YA, contemporary novels in MG & YA, & YA & adult thrillers. #MSWL Send to Query Manager before Sept. 1, or query me when I open again. #WritingCommunity #Amquerying @seymouragency
-contemporary fantasy in YA or MG
-MG whimsical fantasy a la Hayao Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli
-YA or MG high fantasy with a unique magic system / based on mythologies underrepresented In literature / that subverts the tropes of the genre
Meg Gaertner @MEGaertnerHey writers! I won’t be able to participate in #SFFpit for long today, but I’m always on the lookout for engaging SFF in the YA and MG spheres.
Here are some specific wish list items and how to reach me: 1/4
-character-driven YA sci-fi, especially if it explores a theme such as our relationship to technology or what it means to be human
-YA sci-fi blended with any other genre—sci-fi horror, sci-fi fantasy (I’d die for a YA Gideon the Ninth!), sci-fi mystery/thriller, etc.
And for MG contemporary, I'm on the hunt for affecting, voice-y middle grade with a hooky premise, friendship, and emotional depth--coming-of-age books that tow the literary-commercial line like Dan Gemeinhart's and Erin Entrada Kelly's books! #MSWL
Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen3/ 2019 #MSWL Agents: 1st and always, I want to curate a list of authors (and books) that accurately reflects the world around me--one that is filled with diverse creators and content--and support them in our shared goal of creating more mirrors (and portals) for kids and teens.

Caitlin White @caitforestellI’m opening now for the last two weeks in August ONLY for writers traditionally marginalized from publishing, including (but not limited to), BIPOC and LGBTQ+ writers and those with a chronic illness or disability. You don’t have to disclose how you fit… (1/2) #amquerying #mswl
…and you don’t have to submit only work that mirrors your identity (though I’d love to see that too!) but please respect this space. I’m only open to #YA and #MG. Please query me here: QueryManager.com/caitlinwhite
Emily S. Keyes (temporarily closed to queries) @esc_keyOne thing I was thinking about this weekend while watching "Only Murders in the Building" is that I'd like more MG set in apartment buildings. It's just a way to force disparate people to interact. Genre doesn't mater. "Attack the Block" is another fun example. #mswl.
Me too! This is high on my #mswl

Okay, I’m open for submissions again! My #mswl currently includes dark academia, horror, big emotion romance, anything high concept - MG and up. I love folklore and myths from around the world. If I love the voice I’ll tag along for anything!
