If you are querying a MG or YA graphic novel, especially if you are an author-illustrator, I'd love to see it. #PitMad #BVM #MSWL

Also, here's a handy #MSWL! Eager for book club fiction, suspense, contemporary YA, and diverse voices. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara… Please note: unless I directly request something and outside of #PitMad, I am only accepting agented submissions!

Looking for both YA and adult contemporary stories of #ownvoices and #POC. Raw, honest voices. Real emotions, with a commercial hook. Please query me. I am always, always on the hunt for great storytellers. #MSWL

“YA non-fiction: Memoir, essay collections, you name it. Queer There & Everywhere is probably my favorite YA non-fic title in recent memory, and a great example of what I’d like to see.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

Amy Giuffrida @kissedbyink · 3d

I am hungry for YA novels in verse in the same vein as POET X by @ElizabethC05172, LONG WAY DOWN by @JasonReynolds83, or SHOUT by @halseanderson. Give me your strong voices and lyrical prose. #MSWL

I'm going to bug the #WritingCommunity and #romancelandia again. I'm desperately seeking to represent an author who writes happy, funny, heartfelt books in MG, YA, or Adult. #mswl.

“I read widely in YA, and enjoy just about every genre in it. I love moving contemporary reads, thrilling sci-fi, and lush fantasy.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

Like many of us in these strange times, I’ve been taking comfort in books. And it’s made me think of the kinds of stories I want to champion.

Most of this won’t be a surprise, but for what it’s worth, here’s my current #MSWL:

YOUNG ADULT

- high-concept, darkly comic modern fables with literary writing and crossover appeal like THE PISCES or GEEK LOVE
- eerie and atmospheric fantasies inspired by non-Western mythology
- sweet contemporary rom-coms about QPOC main characters

#MSWL

Trisha de Guzman @trishadeg · May 28

YOUNG ADULT

- contemporary stories that take a tongue-in-cheek approach to deconstructing toxic gender norms
- ripped-from-the headlines contemporary novels with literary writing and whipsmart sociopolitical commentary

Also, send me a romance that feels like summer from page one, beach or lake setting, or big city summer feels like LA or NYC. YA or adult, esp from marginalized creators. All the complex feels like in BEACH READ & THE KISS QUOTIENT & REAL MEN KNIT. And as always:🏳️‍🌈 #MSWL

With so many submissions flooding in over the quarantine months, I figured I’d better put together an agent #MSWL! 💜✨I’m closed to #PB and illustrations at the moment but looking to expand my list in #YA and #MG! Wants listed below: 👇🏼👇🏼

Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos · May 25

I don’t even know what I mean when I say I want a YA or Adult SFF with the vibe of the “Rain On Me” video, but I want it #MSWL

(Also, at first I misheard the lyrics as “I’d rather be drunk but at least I’m alive,” and thought that was a bold truth)

I'd love to see LGBTQ+ YA/NA romcoms in my query box. LEAH ON THE OFFBEAT or something like RWRB! I want to laugh, cry, and fall in love. Like anything with the same relationship as David and Patrick. 😍😍😍 #mswl
