A couple things I REALLY want to read right now.

Historical YA with no magic, especially if its gothic/southern gothic.

Romantic Comedies, but with a new twist or perspective. Example: diverse backgrounds, gender-bending, or a retelling of Shakespeare/fairtales/myths. #mswl

Hey, exciting news! My #mswl page is officially up and running (and perhaps unnecessarily detailed), so hit me with your best shot, query people :)…

I hadn't updated my actual #MSWL page since starting the new agency, but I did so today--if you're interested, you can find a more detailed discussion of what I'm looking for in submitted projects this coming year here:…

Oooh, and retellings too! Shakespearean, myths, other books, etc. #MSWL

I want Urban Fantasy with myths and legends based far out of the usual commercial scope. Give me South American creatures, the Philippines, Eastern Island, New Zealand. What's the boogeyman there? I want to know! #MSWL

Chelsea Eberly @chelseberly · Sep 24

I love a fractured fairy tale! But please surprise me with something new. And while talking about fairy tales and myths, I'd love a MG fantasy with the cultural specificity and the fresh contemporary voice of Sayantani DasGupta's THE SERPENT'S SECRET. #MSWL

Fantasy, but make it fresh: unique settings, unusual formats, underrepresented mythology, magical realism, paranormal (yes, paranormal!). I've seen a lot of queries comping to GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE and MY LADY JANE. Keep 'em coming! #MSWL

I would really love a horror novel that features Chinese mythology.

Ruqayyah Daud @rsdaud · Sep 24

Would love to see middle-grade fantasy, particularly inspired by MENA mythology #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · Sep 24

Forever and always, more retellings of lesser known mythology, fairy tales, and classical lit. Especially if it blends with an unexpected genre. #MSWL

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · Sep 24

I'm consistently wishing for more Middle Grade novels in my inbox, especially ones based on myths and traditions from various cultures. I love learning about regional histories, real or not, through stories and lore. #MSWL

Kelly 📚 @LitAgentKelly · Aug 31

For whatever reason, I’m really craving some historical MG, YA, and Adult right now. Scotland history and mythology in the Jacobites time, Louis the XIV court intrigue, French Revolution YA, Spanish Civil War, House of Savoy unification of Italy, Russian Revolution, etc.. #MSWL

Happy Friday, all! Excited to say that my editorial #MSWL page went live today! I'm only open to agented submissions, but if you want to know what kind of books I'm interested in seeing, give it a look:…
