In MG, my list is fantasy-heavy, and, like, don't stop sending me MG fantasy because I love it--but I want to see more MG contemporary! Particularly one that will make me ugly cry on the train, and then carefully glue my heart back together. #MSWL

Stephanie Stein @stephlystein · 24 Sep 2019

YA fantasy is evergreen, but what I want to see is where the genre is going next. A more contemporary direction, a new take on paranormal, twists and turns on some heavy-hitting elements like dragons, gods, monsters, the nature of story? Bring it to me!! #MSWL

A few other things I'd love to see in my inbox...
*MG novel that revolves around a big family (traditional or untrad) and plays with form the way Jane the Virgin did
*YA novel about a young tennis phenom (like Coco Gauff!)
*Interesting structures
*Subversive takes on tropes

Hi, #MSWL Day! Agents, as many of you know, I'm acquiring a range of YA and MG (open to fiction, narrative nonfiction, and graphic novels), and I'm still looking for a lot of the things I've tweeted about on this hashtag in the past! twitter.com/search?q=(%23M…

Savannah Brooks @slbrooks91 · 24 Sep 2019

All right, y'all ready for my #MSWL Day collection of oddities? Cause it's coming at ya (all #YA and #MG):
- Recreational fighting, both combat and noncombat (MMA, kick/boxing, karate, fencing, weapon work, etc.)
- Girl gamers

This is a new one for me, but I'd love to see more adult romance novels in my inbox, especially queer and fun and fat positive ones. #romance #mswl

Stacy Cantor Abrams @StacyAbramsEdit · 24 Sep 2019

#MSWL We are looking for full-length romances for our Amara mass market paperback line! Print tracks preferred. Top genres: cowboys, holidays, weddings, animals, small towns.

Claire Draper 🏳️‍🌈 @draper_claire · 24 Sep 2019

I'm on a happy middle-grade kick, (you can thank @bytrishakelly for that). So send me all of your light hearted and playful #MG please #MSWL

I also would love some stories about nonbinary characters, in whatever way they come. But I'd REALLY love if they were just existing and had normal problems like acne and what hairstyle to wear to prom. Normal teenage stuff please #MSWL #YA

Michelle Richter📚 @Michrichter1 · 24 Sep 2019

Heck, women's fiction from those underrepresented voices too #MSWL

Michelle Richter📚 @Michrichter1 · 24 Sep 2019

Crime fiction from voices we haven't heard enough of: POC, LGBTQ, indigenous, disabled #MSWL

Samantha Wekstein @SWekstein · 24 Sep 2019

#MSWL Books that play with structure and chronology.

Sara Schonfeld @SaraSchon · 24 Sep 2019

And my incredibly specific #MSWL: I would love to see a middle grade adventure that pulls off the tone, historical tie-ins, friendship drama, mystery, and overall excitement/escalation of NATIONAL TREASURE.

Andrea Somberg @andreasomberg · 24 Sep 2019

I have a list of things that I "think" I'm looking for here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/andr…, but I'm constantly being surprised by what I fall in love with! Looking for my next favorite project #MSWL

Melissa Richeson @MelissaRicheson · 24 Sep 2019

#MSWL Take me on vacation! I’d love a MG or YA with a fun contemporary setting. Exotic or cosmopolitan or international. Tropical or mountainous. Or...Surprise me!

Michelle Richter📚 @Michrichter1 · 24 Sep 2019

Also on my #MSWL is family drama, stories with secrets, with sisters or friends. If you compare yourself to Celeste Ng, I want to see your work.

If you have MG, YA, or A dealing with fandom (fiction or nonfiction) I want it please!!! #mswl

MistleTia 🎄 (Closed to Queries) @TiatheTiger · 24 Sep 2019

I would really love a YA exploring online friendship. There are great aspects, and also a lot of complications. I’m talking strictly platonic here. I met my best friend on the Jonas brothers fan club so online friendship has a special place in my heart. #mswl

Michelle Richter📚 @Michrichter1 · 24 Sep 2019

It's #MSWL day and I'm very eager to find suspense, domestic and otherwise, as by Liv Constantine, Megan Miranda, Ruth Ware, Fiona Barton.
