Romantic Comedy

Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymonds · Jul 1

I had such an amazing time at #alaac19 and in New York! After wonderful conversations with my TBA colleagues and many editors, a few updates to my #MSWL: coming of age literary MG, young illustrated MG, and (still!) contemporary YA, especially diverse voices and/or a rom com.

#MSWL Adult Rom-com’s with diverse characters (I.e. Crazy Rich Asians, Ayesha At Last, etc.). Bonus points if complete with Bridget Jones-like single and imperfect woman, epic Tinder fails, and best friends like The Bold Type. 👍🏻😉

LRT(s): I adore romcoms! Recently flailed over THE FLATSHARE (5⭐️) and I’m so pumped to start THE FRIEND ZONE and AYESHA AT LAST. Got a romcom like those? Check out my #mswl (…) and #MSWLaesthetic for more!

I’ve really been craving feel-good rom-coms lately. Send me your HEAs, your enemies-to-lovers, your “it’s complicated”s. #mswl

I'd love a colorful rom-com to balance all this dark and moody energy in my inbox! #MSWL

I’d love to acquire a fun, contemporary #YA rom-com that will appeal to fans of Jenny Han and Morgan Matson (for the age 12 and up crowd). *Agented submissions only, please! #MSWL #Youngteen

Just finished watching #AlwaysBeMyMaybe on Netflix and I just need to say:

We need more romcoms featuring POC

On my summer #MSWL list:
1. Anything YA comparable to the show Roswell (original show or new adaption. I love both).
2. A YA rom com that gives me feelings of Ten Things I Hate About You
3. Upper YA with the dark feeling of Cruel Intentions.

BTW big #MSWL, in case you all don’t already know this, please send me all your #MiddleGrade and #youngadult #JewishKidLit manuscripts! Particularly interested in anything #queer #fantasy #scifi #romcom #mystery

Would love a rom com featuring POC characters and how their families tie into it all. I want them defying stereotypes, but loving, respecting, and owning their culture. #MSWL

“Commercial Fiction and Rom Coms (especially with a diverse cast!) like AYESHA AT LAST, JANE THE VIRGIN, ONE DAY IN DECEMBER, THE PROPOSAL, and Elin Hilderbrand. I need a very strong hook.” @carlywatters #MSWL
