Authors! I've been closed to queries for 3 months due to ill health in my family. I am re-opening today, but being somewhat specific on what I'm seeking. Please read this thread or my #MSWL manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara… (The tulip is just for fun.) ....
I've tumbled into a research hole about the Jewish-American Mafia, and...folks, this is so specific...but if anybody's sitting on an ownvoices YA set during the turn-of-the-20th-century and following a teen swept up by the Purple Gang, I'm your girl #MSWL
I'm starting to catch up on my submissions. I've answered all queries and have read all submissions sent before January 15th. To celebrate, I'm reposting my pretty #MSWL pic.
Hey, #amquerying peeps! I really, really, really want MG projects. #OwnVoices and #diversity = bonus! I also really, really, really want some I-cannot-put-this-down thrillers. Send query & 1st 5 pages to: querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (dot) com. #mswl
Would love to see an #OwnVoices cozy mystery featuring Latina sisters in the vein of Anne George’s Southern Sisters series. Whether they be senior sisters or teens, I’d love to see a sibling cozy mystery with a latinx MC. #MSWL
I'm looking for #OwnVoices children's nonfiction writers. If submitting, please send to submissions at stonesong.com and put "query" and "children's nonfiction" somewhere in the subject line. Thanks! #MSWL
As a Korean-American, I'm on the hunt for anything that showcases my culture and heritage. I want to boost our stories across genres: contemporary, historical, SF/F...again, own-voices only. #mswl
Sarah E. Younger @seyitsmeHappy International Women's Day!!!!!
Have been thinking...On this Celebratory day do you all want me to share my super Feminist Book Craving Wishlist?
I just want to READ these books, but if someone wanted to write them and send them my way I'd be 100% game for that too!
I am going to do 5 FEMINIST WISH LIST READS on this #InternationalWomensDay
1) I want to read Okoye's from story from Black Panther!! (Badass Feminist, General, Leader, WHO NEEDS HER OWN STORY. And if you want to write it ... Own Voices Pls.)
I’d love to see more #ownvoices and #diversity MG and YA queries. Paste query and first five pages in body of email and send to: querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (dot) com. #writingcommmunity #amquerying #MSWL
Naomi Davis The Caffeinated @NaomisLitPixOPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Queer contemporary romance! Show me all kinds of relationships, all genders. Make me BURN with desire to see the relationship ignite!

Devin Ross @DevyrossHey #writingcommmunity I'm looking for some specific things in my queries so here are a few #mswl items I'd love to see!
