#MSWL CONT:
-eerie & haunting atmospheric horror where the source of the fear reflects something deeper. No gratuitous violence/gore—I want to be creeped out, not grossed out.
-swoony, sharply funny romcoms w/ chemistry that sizzles

#MSWL CONT:
-stories that play with form & storytelling
-quiet magic/strangeness
-retelling genre mashups (eg. The Girls at the Kingfisher Club, Warm Bodies, Hadestown)
-stories where food plays a major role
-all the feels (take me on an emotional rollercoaster)

To start, at the moment I am only looking for MG, YA, and adult commercial and upmarket fiction. I’ll list the genres for each in the thread below. Unfortunately, I’m not the right person for adult literary fiction or nonfic, and (for now) I’m not actively looking for PBs.

Across the board (MG, YA, and adult), I’m drawn to:
-stories with a strong family element, whether that’s biological or found family
-protagonists who aren’t the best at whatever they do or The Chosen One, but who try really *really* hard, even when they screw up

I only do MG and YA. My taste leans commercial and escapist and ultimately…fun. Big imaginations. Joy of adventure. Humor. Romance. Big feelings. I’ts okay if we’re not a match. There’s a bazillion agents these days. #MSWL

I just remembered I’m reopening to submissions tomorrow. I am mildly terrified. Go easy on me.

Sub guidelines are easy. I use Query Manager. You’ll need a query letter and 10 sample pages to paste into the form. I’m not uptight about query format as long as you have in there CONCISELY:
- the pitch
- a plot teaser
- a little bit about you
