I'm a huge fan of mysteries & crime thrillers. In response to recent news in the mystery community, I'm opening my closed sub policy thru 12/20 to queries from #POC #writers of MG & YA mysteries & thrillers. Query erin_submissions at emliterary.com. #mswl
Hi #amquerying folks! Just a reminder that Corvisiero will be closing to queries on Dec 1! If you have a dark #YA thriller/contemporary/mystery or a #MG survial, those are at the top of my wishlist right now 😁 #mswl
My annual it’s-dark-outside-at-4pm #mswl for a YA or middle grade narrative set at summer camp has arrived right on schedule. The more queer the better, must have emotional stakes, graphic novels welcome.
Alice S-H 🍂 @alibelleJust updated my "What I'm Looking For" page (madeleinemilburn.co.uk/looking-for/al…). MG, fat protags, clean teen, illustrations, picture books, not really YA. Give me a shout!
Currently nerding out over Erik Larson’s meticulously detailed account of the last days of the Lusitania in Dead Wake, having flashbacks to my childhood obsession with A Night to Remember...
Anybody writing a YA or MG set aboard a slowly sinking ship? #MSWL
Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenEHas vax been covered in MG? Might make for an interesting conflict. #MSWL (Just for the record, I am and always will be pro-vaccines. Vaccines save lives.) twitter.com/laurenspieller…

When I was a kid/teen, I had so many complicated feelings about myself, my body, and my peers in all things related to sports (swimming’ll do that). I would LOVE to find a middle grade or YA narrative that takes on this kind of emotional arc. #mswl

Linda Epstein @LindaEpsteinI know this is very specific, but I'd like a MG or YA set in the Jewish ghetto in WW2 Shanghai. I've been thinking about this for years... #MSWL
I will take a submission for👇🏼at any time, whether I’m open to queries or not. Put Shanghai Ghetto in the subject line. #MSWL
My number one wish list item right now is heartfelt, voice- and relationship-driven contemporary MG. Recent faves like IVY ABERDEEN, LOVE LIKE SKY, and FRONT DESK gave me families, friendships, and crushes that felt achingly, oh so real. If you have it, I want it! 😊 #MSWL
