Linda Epstein @LindaEpsteinHere's the deal: I'll be open to queries from April 1st - June 30th. If I've specifically told you to send me something sooner, then send it sooner (for example the #highlightsjewishkidlit peeps). I'll do a #mswl thread within the next few days. Please RT & let your friends know!
When I open in April, I am looking for MG & YA stories featuring Jewish main characters, by Jewish authors, including realistic contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi, LGBTQ+, romcoms, secular stories, spiritual stories, & especially stories from Jewish people of color. #MSWL
Sam Sykes @SamSykesSwearsdisney princesses reimagined as frustrated modern women disappointed with life rooming together in an LA flat and working a variety of jobs to get by in this disappointing world while also smoking weed and I guess there's a cat or something and maybe he talks
(written by a woman, sorry Sam)
Brooding YA Hero @broodingYAheroInstead of doing all the unpaid (and unappreciated) emotional labor required to fix my life, my manic pixie dream girl decided to elope with my (so-called) evil ex-girlfriend instead.
PLEASE AND THANK YOU
Linda Epstein @LindaEpsteinTwo things I decided/learned from listening at the #highlightsjewishkidlit weekend: writers don’t need to define if it’s “a Jewish book,” just write what’s there. And we’re all Jewish enough (or not too Jewish) exactly however we are. Also, YES please to Jewish fantasy & sci-fi!
Jewish fantasy or sci-fi!! #mswl
Marisa DiNovis @dinovismsGenre-bending, standalone YA spec fic that puts me in the mind of Jane, Unlimited—a book I read over a year ago and still think about on a weekly basis. Bonus points for a sweeping yet claustrophobic setting like Tu Reviens! #mswl
Omg, this is my #mswl forever!!
Shannon Hale @haleshannonBlack cartoonists and writers and creators, please! Please make middle grade graphic novels starring Black girls! There's a HUGE lack. (and middle grade is SUCH a wonderful space and age of readers...join us...you'll never want to leave) twitter.com/varianjohnson/…
I would love to see these books pop up in my inbox, agents. #MSWL
James McGowan @jamerrson.@BookEndsJessica and I have been super interested in this "sharenting" craze. We think it would make for so many good books. #MSWL fastcompany.com/90315706/kids-…
