Putting out an #MSWL call for marginalized creators and all of the beautiful intersections therein 🧡
I'd love to see more projects in book club fiction, thrillers, mysteries, suspense, romance, SFF, and horror for middle-grade, YA, & adult readers! Genre blends too!

Kortney Price @kortney_priceSo, after a bit of a hiatus, I have a couple of updates.
First update: my query box is back open and I'm so incredibly excited to read what y'all have to share with me! #amquerying (1/2)
Second update: Along with #PB, #MG, and #YA books, I'm also now open to adult #romance titles. My taste in two words? Humor and Heart! For more you can check out my #MSWL here:manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/kort… (2/2)
NPR @NPRThrowing thousands of baby puffins off a cliff is a yearly tradition for the people of Iceland's Westman Islands. It's part of what's known as "puffling season," and it's a crucial life-saving endeavor. n.pr/3SwR2c5
#MSWL MG environmental fiction/nonfiction. 🪶
"I am on the hunt for nonfiction in MG. Show me glimpses of history that haven't been taught to younger students before, collections of pieces, anthologies."
D.B. Gee—Querying Speculative Fantasy! @DBGeeWrites@featherfully Hi Feather! I took a peek at the website for the publishers in your bio but didn't see YA as an age range. You liked one of my pitches (thank you ), so I'm hoping to confirm you are interested in acquiring YA stories. Thank you!
Hey D.B.! Oh gosh, that's strange. But YES—Atheneum publishes picture books, MG, YA, and graphic novels within the S&S Children's group. My specific #MSWL lives here, if you want to check it out: featherflores.com/mswl/. Any questions, give me a shout! (& ahh your pitch is 🔥🔥)
Emily S. Keyes @esc_keyJust heard about #PitBLK today. Everyone welcome to query me if they think I am a good fit (info: keyesagency.com/submissions/). Desperate to fall in love with something right now!
Hi book nerds 💜 Huzzah! My #MSWL is now officially live! Agented authors and creators, feel free to share this with your agent. Unfortunately for those in the query trenches, I'm unable to accept unagented submissions...I leave you with a catdog 🐱🐶
#MSWL: #ChildrensBooks send me yr #GraphicNovel projects, from high-concept to literary, or middle grade with visual elements. Something with heart & humor. See Remy Lai's Pie in the Sky as a good comp. Also enjoyed Witches of Brooklyn & Pilau of the Woods as GN comps.
#MSWL: For #ChildrensBooks I'm only looking for Middle Grade and Young Adult right now. In the NF children's space I want STEAM-focused titles, anything whimsical and transportive, but has to be light on fantasy/ grounded fantasy (no #scifi for me).
I would love a laugh-out-loud #MG about a protagonist who learns (the hard way) how to lose with grace and emerges better equipped to face the future--not only to weather losses but to enjoy and appreciate the wins.
Actually, I'd love to find that story in any category
✨Lane TIMES INFINITY✨ @lanewriteswordsHi hi! It’s nearly spooky season AND Latine & Hispanic Heritage Month!! If you are Latine and/or Hispanic and have a spooky book, any age group, I would love love love to read it. I will be prioritizing these books (and any books by Latine and/or Hispanic writers) this month
big #MSWL item for me too, though I can only do picture books through YA
