“Send me your diverse MG adventures where the kids go wild in a fashion industry setting, think a big and beautiful bridal shop a la Say Yes to the Dress or a designer's home office or flagship.” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

C.G. Drews @PaperFurymy favourite types of found-family
1) group of misfits tumble together and find the loving acceptance they deserve, wholesome shenanigans ensue
2) group of stabby ferals collide and fiercely love each other while doing crime, swapping trauma stories, and making more bad decisions
Kelly Carrell is looking for work! @specifikellysomeone hire me to work on your slice-of-life-with-fantastical-elements-story-that-deals-with-people-talking-about-their-feelings-and-is-also-gay-and-maybe-a-little-spooky project please
I'll be opening to queries again soon! I know; it's been a while. But I'm excited about some great stuff happening, and all of my clients have great stuff they are working on. So it's time to update the #mswl and see what's out there. Keep your eyes peeled for more info soon.
These are just a few specifics, but I’m open to any sff! I love grand world-building and multiple POVs. Anything with the feel of a Robin Hobb novel or THE BLACK COAST. I can’t wait to get reading! #MSWL
I want political intrigue! THE GOBLIN EMPEROR is my favourite novel of all time and I’m chasing something that will sweep me away into a strange world of courtly intrigue and political machinations. Fast-paced plotting like THE TETHERED MAGE, send it my way! #MSWL
Multiverses and space opera! I love expansive worlds with a close knit cast of characters, like NOPHEK GLOSS. I love the strange and alien, horror in space, and found family tropes. Another recent favourite of mine was THE SPACE BETWEEN WORLDS. #MSWL
Horror! Folk horror with a creeping sense of atmosphere like THE ONLY GOOD INDIANS and THE TWISTED ONES. I’m fascinated by cults and spooky goings-on and literally anything with a witch. I would love to see some non-Western horror in the style of HIS HOUSE. #MSWL
Dark academia in the vein of NINTH HOUSE and PLAIN BAD HEROINES. Give me dusty tomes, ancient libraries, snarky heroes and anything featuring alchemy. I’m a sucker for some alchemical magic. #MSWL
Romance. All the romance. Gothic, LGBTQIA+, romance in space (hello, WINTER’S ORBIT), unrequited love, erotic kneeling, enemies to lovers. I love ALL THE TROPES. I’d especially love to see some disaster bisexuals in any setting, just being disastrous. #MSWL
Send me your non-Western epic fantasies like THE UNBROKEN and THE JASMINE THRONE. I’m particularly after Islamic and Middle Eastern fantasy that reminds me of home and I have a soft spot for tales featuring djinn. #MSWL
#MSWL For YA, I’d love to see kind of edgy contemporary and thrillers that represent some of that diversity mentioned above. One specific thing I’d ~love is a story about a teenage activist who stands for something they believe in, perhaps despite being underestimated.
#MSWL I have a love for contemporary MG books with quirky plotlines and lovable characters that you just want to hug as you see them grow. I’d love to see unique family arrangements and unique communities with those characters too.
Carlisa Cramer @carlisajcHAPPY NEWS ALERT: After a bit of a hiatus, I’m back acquiring for @fluxbooks and @JollyFishPress. I’m so excited to jump back in and find some incredible MG and YA stories!
So in terms of my #MSWL, I am on the hunt for engaging characters with strong voices, especially characters who represent diversity in race, sexual orientation, gender identity, and physical disabilities. A dream book is a young adult book with a type 1 diabetic MC.
