I'd be interested in a YA or MG cli-fi take along the lines of these photos.
In general, I'd like to see a YA near-future speculative take on where our world is headed. Light on the dystopia, heavy on the creative speculation. #MSWL

Hi, #WritingCommunity! At long last, my #MSWL is finally up. 🎉 If you read my wish list and want to query me, please follow the submission guidelines at the bottom of my MSWL page.
More in fiction: joyous LGBTQ+ characters. Contemporary, literary takes on the Western that critique genre tropes. Speculative/magical realism elements that are grounded in the “real” world (think Nothing To See Here, The Pisces)
Logan Harper @LoganRHarperWill be participating in #PitDark today! If I like your pitch, please send your query letter, synopsis, and first three chapters to lharper(at)janerotrosen(dot)com.
I am also open to queries! I’m particularly hungry for adult and literary horror, dark and twisty suspense, & social horror or thrillers with a speculative edge. Full #mswl at the link in my bio, and you can submit to me here: janerotrosen.com/submissions
