I'm on the hunt for excellent, original #romance in the sci-fi/fantasy genres that fits Mystic Owl guidelines. Submission details here: cityowlpress.com/queries/#mysti… #MSWL #querytrenches #amquerying
I recently reread ALMA AND HOW SHE GOT HER NAME and it’s truly one of my all time favorites. I’d love to see more projects in my inbox exploring the things—names, food, places—that connect us with the generations before us. PB (author-illustrator only), MG/YA novel, GN. #mswl
I’m loving all the nonfiction queries I’m getting! I’d also love to see more illustrators/graphic novelists who are interested in creating/working on NF projects for kids. #mswl

Maria Vicente @msmariavicenteThrowing a new #MSWL into the universe: a YA historical fiction about disco subculture! 🕺🏿
I’m particularly interested in a story that explores:
🌀disco’s beginnings in Black and queer communities
🌀 the commercialization and appropriation of the genre as it gained popularity
🌀 the (racist and homophobic foundation of the) anti-disco movement
Jennifer Lee Rossman @JenLRossmanConcept: emotional support ghosts. If you have unfinished business, we'll pair you up with a living person who needs a supportive friend and you can help each other check things off those to do lists
I'm dying (lols) to get a locked-room mystery #YA. I want high stakes, high energy, and I want to be guessing who did what and why and then be surprised that I was wrong. Send it if you've got it! #MSWL
I pre-ordered Thin Places from the UK months ago because I knew I needed this! And it did not disappoint! One of my favorite thing is reading new Irish writers! If you're an Irish writer please send your work my way! #MSWL
Abigail 🦊✨ @ARIsa_AuthorOkay okay, but... Can we popularize the love interest ALSO being the comic relief? Like, instead of brooding and playing hard-to-get, we get fun shenanigans and silly banter?
I immediately love any romance with this dynamic #mswl
Do you have an #OwnVoices manuscript that fits the Mystic Owl guidelines (check them out at cityowlpress.com/queries/#mysti…)? I'd love to see it! Query me here: querymanager.com/query/LisaGree… #MSWL
