“I’d love to see more YA or MG illustrated nonfiction or graphic novels about women’s rights, reproductive health, and adjacent topics (pop culture included).” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
You know what I love? A ticking clock. Think @rlynn_solomon's Today, Tonight, Tomorrow or @loversdiction's Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist or @NicolaYoon's The Sun is Also a Star. Give me 24 high stakes hours! #MSWL
Please DO NOT send me pandemic stories or virus stories or stories about illness. I know these might be important but I'm taking care of my mental health and not reading those kind of stories right now so I'd just be the wrong agent for that. #mswl
I'm THE RIGHT agent for stories about friendship, 1st love, sex-positive teen relationships, anything art related (but especially a heist!), fighting climate change, navigating social injustice, food nerds, theatre nerds, Star Trek nerds, math nerds, nerds in general. #mswl
I am THE WRONG agent for stories about sports, the Holocaust, anything murdery or scary, most talking animals, cults, Christmas, zombies, historical fiction about war, or Jewish stories told by non-Jewish people. #mswl
What I'd love to see in my inbox: #YA #romcom by #BIPOC authors. I like realistic contemporaries but could be open to other genres, if done well. Queer, straight, whatever. Send me your swoon-worthy love stories. #mswl
I'll be open to submissions until February 15th. Please query me at QueryManager dot com/LindaEpstein with #middlegrade & #youngadult novels & #chapterbooks. I'm NOT open to picture books.

Zach Olmstead @Maximumrider217Yes, romance is great but have you ever fantasized about the possibilities of a platonic love story, like an epic fantasy where a celibate monk and a princess team up to save their kingdom, become best friends, and don’t end up together at the end? Pretty sure it can’t beat that.
Wait can I have this? I honestly want this #MSWL
MJ Johnston @FictionalMJAre editor MSWLs a thing? Are they helpful? Am I supposed to just say “I acquire fiction” or can I follow my heart and list “any novel with the vibe of a post-1989 Taylor Swift song?” Can I write it like a missed connections ad? someone pls tell me the rules!
P.S. Literary Agency @PSLiterary“Stories with a feminist angle—both for fiction and nonfiction—have a special place in my heart.” @ceciliaclyra #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
