Really would love some queer horror--whether that's horror featuring queer characters, horror used to explore concepts of queerness, or both! Non-queer horror also welcome, especially that which hovers on the edge of suspense/horror genres #mswl

I am IN LOVE with most books that take place in some sort of fantasy arctic tundra. Don't ask me why. I really have no clue. But if your manuscript is atmospheric and takes place in a really harsh arctic environment, I want it! #MSWL

And to round out my Middle Grade #MSWL with some speculative items: chilling horror is always my jam, and I want to read your luscious, weird, wow-this-worldbuilding-is-fantastic fantasies.

My MG #MSWL is basically this: if Rick Riordan Presents would publish it, I want it. Epic fantasy adventures that I haven’t seen million times already. With humor and loads of imagination.

I would also love contemporary Middle Grade novels with a strong emphasis on nature: animal stories, environmental themes, unusual settings. #MSWL

Would also love an upmarket workplace novel with poc characters set in a large city (New York! Chicago! Miami! etc.) #MSWL

I'm definitely looking to add to my MG list! I love some contemp. MG that deals with tough issues, MG fantasy, and MG sci-fi (yes, sometimes even the space kind here). I'm SUPER picky about MG voice though, so just send it in and see what happens! =) Maybe I'll love it! #MSWL

I'm consistently wishing for more Middle Grade novels in my inbox, especially ones based on myths and traditions from various cultures. I love learning about regional histories, real or not, through stories and lore. #MSWL

Amber Oliver @Amber_Oliver007 · Sep 24

I've been dying for a creepy, atmospheric contemporary southern gothic with poc characters. #MSWL so hard y'all!

Please send me your climate activist teens and middle-schoolers. I see a lot of ruined futures in my inbox, but not nearly enough contemporary activism narratives! #MSWL

I really NEED a YA alchemy book. Think in the vein of Fullmetal Alchemist. Give me a conflicted MC or a world where the laws of alchemy are being challenged or where magic comes at devastating price.

#MSWL A book about a group of female friends in the vein of THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS--but modern.

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · Sep 24

Even though I'm closing to queries in a few days (Oct 1), I'm still going to share a few specific #MSWL items because a) it's too fun not to and b) maybe someone out there is currently working on the perfect book to send me in the new year! 🤞

Sympathetic psychopaths, cult-y fiction, campus novels of all stripes, books tied to an unfamiliar professional world (ballet/restaurants/sports), upmarket #metoo novels, political conversation starters (a la American Marriage or The Mothers), a romcom with a fresh hook... #mswl

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Sep 24

#mswl I’d also REALLY like to see more MG. A few recent favorites:

- The Science of Unbreakable Things by @taekeller
-the Kiranmala series by @Sayantani16
-A Good Kind of Trouble by @Leeseray
-Pie in the Sky by Remy Lai

Megan Manzano says Keep Faith Is Out! @Megan_Manzano · Sep 24

I'd really love some speculative contemporary YA or MG. Creepy woods. Elemental powers. Out of body experiences. Alternative worlds.

#MSWL

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Sep 24

-f/f or m/m or any kind of queer prom book
