*whispers for no particular reason*
New adult is not a dead genre in traditional publishing. Some publishers even have New Adult-only imprints. Like Entangled :)
And some people there, like me, are hella thirsty for more New Adult. Especially ff. #mswl, my dudes 😎👉🏼👉🏼
Other agents post their #MSWL by genre. For me, I want smart, well-written adult or YA fiction with conflict, character growth and feels. Looking for an "OMG didn't see that coming." Also nonfiction that is inspirational or solves a problem. #amwriting #writingcommunity
In General Fiction, I'm super picky, but would like:
- Literary Fiction by diverse authors.
- High concept Romance like RW&RB.
- Books that would fall in the NA category if it existed.

Anarchopac @anarchopacWhy is some people's idea of interesting alternative history what if the Nazis won when they could be thinking about what if John Brown went on a successful slave owner killing rampage?
seriously. who's out there writing alt-history where something went right? (or at least, not wrong in the way that we know it?) #mswl

#MSWL I am always eager to find new adult fantasy and sci fi projects, but I am extremely selective. Looking for sci fi that changes my entire perception of possibility in the universe. Looking for fantasy that breaks the mold & embraces new magical structures/systems.
Before I forget! I love historical romance, historical fantasies, alternate historical fantasies etc etc in YA and Adult. I’d LOVE an f/f in a period story! Like duchess debauchery or some shit. With WOC!!! Bc racism is a recent phenomenon. #mswl
