YA romcoms are my jam. Always have been. I want to see more STEM, fun jobs, and unique hobbies. DON’T DATE ROSA SANTOS, WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, ROYALS, and ALEX, APPROXIMATELY are perfect examples of voice, humor, and substance in contemp YA romcoms! #mswl

I’d love to get in more Women’s/General fiction! Here’s my current #MSWL: Multicultural stories; Women in STEM; High-concept historical; Millennial characters/themes; or Queer fiction. Can be a combination of any of the above.

As a huge astronomy buff myself, and in lieu of the first image of a black hole being released, I would love to get some more #YA and #MG submissions with characters who have a passion for fields in STEM. THE LAST TIME WE SAY GOODBYE is a perfect example of this #MSWL #amagenting

Where's my STEM novel about a teen "citizen scientist" who is busy studying insects in their neighborhood... and stumbles upon a massive breakthrough / problem / new species / etc. Send me this. xerces.org/citizen-scienc… #MSWL

Hey #amquerying authors, I desperately want a picture book that introduces poetry to little peeps. Think the recent #STEM and science trends, but instead apply poetry. Pitch me in the comments 👇#pb #MSWL #poetry @ManuscriptWList

#MSWL:
Contemporary, emotional love stories
Sweeping historical fiction
Smart, elevated thrillers
Novels in verse
Picture books with STEM hooks
Anything else that’s voice driven, literary, and innovative!
