Lauren Spieller @laurenspiellerI'd like a MG Fantasy that features lesser-known creatures of myth and legend (be that because they don't figure as prominently in mythology, or because they are from traditions ignored by the European-centric literary canon). #mswl pic.twitter.com/LZ06ndP0L0
Always #mswl for this in MG & YA. Historical fic, urban fantasy, and magical realism!

Gearing up to reopen to submissions (possibly in the next couple of weeks). I want to see more Middle Grade and Contemporary YA! Especially stories from POC and non-binary voices. Please no issue books. I want fully developed plots, strong hooks, and nuanced characters. #mswl
Would love commercial high concept #MG, written in a literary style, that explores some important emotional competency for the characters (death, loss, catastrophe, violence, race, differences/disability, social justice, growing up, etc) contemp, fantasy, sci-fi, etc. #MSWL
Leon Husock @LeonHusockI'd love to see someone make up new elements for element-control magic rather than use the classical elements. Not sure what they'd be, but it'd be an interesting change of pace. #MSWL
Ooh, this sounds fantastic (in YA/MG). #MSWL
I know I'm not going out on a limb here by saying how much I loved HELLO, UNIVERSE, but I read it this weekend and good heavens I loved it! If you are querying a MG like this, please send it my way. This book was amazing, and my heart belongs to Gulliver. #MSWL
Beverly Twomey 🐝 @BevTwomey@KiraWatsonESA Hello! What are your Top Three #MSWL at the moment? :) #askagent
Preeti Chhibber @runwithskizzersRecommendation request! Do people have go-to kid lit that represents South Indians? I'm excited about all the North Indian desi rep we're getting, but I'd like to expand it. Reply w/ any South Indian recs you have for Kid Lit (esp if South Indian American reps). Thx!
This is a #mswl for me, especially in middle grade!
