DeidreKnight @DeidreKnightI just re-opened to queries. I had closed for a few weeks. If you have a submission with me, I'm working on reading everything. My reopening to queries doesn't mean I've caught up all reading! 😊 Please see: knightagency.net/submissions pic.twitter.com/Eocb6m7AWW
So what do I want to find, you may ask? Well #amagenting, #amwriting peeps, bring me your fiction right now. Romcom/chick lit, humor, feel-good, queer lit, ya and ya-crossover...hockey/sports. Sports romance. Ya fantasy and romcom. Really want to find queer teen lit. #mswl.
And on the exact opposite end of the spectrum, I love my contemporary realistic #MG with tons of heart + humor + hope. ❤️
Would love to see a character-driven sports story, like the Track series!
MG and YA body-centric books. Characters who discover a sport/activity they love, or who feel betrayed by their changing body, or who have to adapt after any kind of body change #MSWL #WishlistWednesday
Netflix US @netflixTHE ENGLISH GAME
If you liked Downton Abbey, you’ll love this new show from creator Julian Fellowes. Here he tackles the story of two footballers on opposite sides of a class divide who forge a bond that helps bring the upper-class sport to the masses in England, circa 1870. pic.twitter.com/oql0eceD1U
I just started watching this and I hereby request a Victorian football romance ⚽️💖 #mswl
Tara Gilbert 🔮✨ @Literary_TaraCan I get a LGBTQIA+ sports romance? Especially if the sporty one is a lady, trans, or nonbinary. This is for adult, YA, and I'd take upper MG (even if it isn't romance). Thanks! #mswl
Esports count too!! Give me gamers! Heck, I'll take hetero in that. #mswl

Kat Cho 🦊🇰🇷📚 @KatChoI NEED a YA novel with competitive teens that also have a fierce, tough, complex adult character like Monica from CHEER to support and push them! #cheeronnetflix pic.twitter.com/1EkcidfK6P
Huge #MSWL right now. I devoured Cheer and would love to see some competitive sports stories in my query box.
-**we can fight climate change y’all**
-queer MC on an adventure, heist, terrible sports team etc (tho plot not necessarily about their queerness)
-joyful/frivolous/funny stories that center kids from marginalized backgrounds
-dogs, horses & sassycats (3/7)
Regardless of genre, some themes and subjects I love: family history/family identity; regret; sibling relationships; break-ups/romance gone sideways; extracurricular activities (such as sports, plays, mock trial), stories about letting go of shame, etc. #mswl
carlydraws @carlydraws@chavelaque What subject would you like to see more books about?
A PB on the Atlanta washerwoman’s strike, or Pullman porters, or the Chicano rights movement; MG novels starring boys of color doing sports; MG or YA NF on topics of POC history #mswl
Glennon Doyle @GlennonDoyleWhen this player's hijab started falling off to reveal her hair, her opponents gathered around to provide cover while she fixed it.
This is our mood today.
When one of us needs us: We stop. We huddle up. We protect each other.
I love the soccer. I love women.
#MSWL everything about this. All the girl power in everything but especially in sports. And girls banding together instead of seeing each other as the enemy. I know HS And MS girls can be mean, but they can also be loving, supportive, and empowering, and that’s what I wanna see.
Kiki Nguyen @kiananguNot a sports book, but main characters and/or love interests who play sports. Sports aren't queer, per se, but queer folks who play sports are hot and we NEED MORE IN YA #mswl Look, ultimate frisbee is GAY AS HELL - where's the book with that love interest?

Also give me more sports books! Especially queer ones! With literary writing and imagery and beautiful characters. But also nothing gets my heart racing like the seconds ticking down at the end of a game (any type of game!) and genuinely not being sure of the outcome #MSWL
