“Middle Grade: a protagonist with immigrant parents, an animal story (NOT talking animals), anything with an environmental theme, inventive chapter book series.” @msmariavicente mariavicente.com/representation #MSWL

It has been such a long week and all I want right now is some really soft, humorous contemporary YA with diverse characters that has the same beats as as narrative or visual novel games.

Bonus points if it's set in a coffee shop or a bookstore or a board game cafe. #MSWL

Agented #MSWL only: a truly joyful novel, YA or adult (example from my list: @casey_mcquiston’s RED, WHITE & ROYAL BLUE) @editorMSWL

Whoever is doing a Madeleine Miller style treatment of the Cassandra myth I want that in my inbox. It's I can think about as we, place-by-place, scream at our community to stop. going. out. #MSWL

Sam totally called it in 5x13 Schitt’s Creek. He said it was basically exactly how his went with me 😂😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

David and Patrick are LIFE. Give me David x Patrick vibes in all your love stories! #mswl

Hey #amquerying authors, I’ve got lots of reading time, so send me allllll your VOICEY escapist fic. Book club fic, rom coms (I love the het ones, yes, but dear god someone send me a queer f/f or enby rom com), beach reads, upmarket family drama heavy on sister stories. #MSWL

Lauren is open to queries! @laurenspieller · Mar 20

Current #MSWL wishlist:

❤️ YA/Adult Rom Com— high concept and swoony

✨ Magical stories with fun, pacey plots - MG/YA/Adult

If your project doesn’t fall under these two categories but it is still uplifting and joyful, I’d love to see it!

A YA about being trapped with your family. Yet finding connection, solace. #mswl

💔 Stories that center on complicated history, trickery and deceit, and a full cast of characters just trying to get by (and slay some baddies). Think INUYASHA. If you know, you know. 😭😭😭 YA. #MSWL

Deeba Zargarpur @deebazargarpur · Mar 20

💞 Also related, but I'm a sucker for contemp fantasy too! 🤸🏽‍♀️I'm a kid at heart, and to this day, I am convinced there is magic right around the corner, waiting to take me on the adventure of my life (and defeat some villians who maybe had nice hearts once upon a time) MG. #MSWL

Deeba Zargarpur @deebazargarpur · Mar 20

🔊 FANTASY! You heard it. I want it. I'm looking for lush, non-Western settings that are epic in scope, with grand magic systems. 🙏🏽 Let me escape in this world, let it be a world I WANT to escape into! Make it treacherous but alluring ala THE CRUEL PRINCE. 💫 #MSWL

Deeba Zargarpur @deebazargarpur · Mar 20

😂 Humorous and witty picture books! Would love something whimsical featuring a duo of adventure (and trouble making) siblings. #MSWL

Deeba Zargarpur @deebazargarpur · Mar 20

📚 Stories with Muslim protagonists who inspire and lead! Give me that grand love story. Take me on an epic quest. Transport me to a magical world where Islam is what makes the world beautiful. 💫 #MSWL

Deeba Zargarpur @deebazargarpur · Mar 20

💞 Family means everything to me and I'm a sucker for stories that feature big, multigenerational, immigrant families. 🎁 Have a story that has a treasure trove of family history? 💫 Bonus points for multilingual households and prose that keeps me up at night. YA or MG. #MSWL
