My #MSWL these days: Fiction: Adult Suspense, YA contemporary (any subgenre), YA and MG Graphic Novels.
Nonfiction: Pop Culture, or Narrative Nonfiction that reads like a novel, but is 100% researched. I remain open to other stuff, but the above is what I really want.
Okay, so Plan B is the teen reproductive rights movie I needed.
Also, the fact that one of the MCs is crushing on a guy who shares a mutual love of Sailor Moon is everything. 😂
I’d like to #mswl a YA story like Plan B!
Hannah Schofield @hannschofieldGood afternoon #amquerying writers! I am BACK (or my submissions inbox is)
As well as my #mswl on the LBA website, you can find out some more about me in this interview I did with the lovely people at @RNAtweets: romanticnovelistsassociation.org/2021/04/ask-an…
I include some pointers about how to catch my eye with your query letter - title; clear, snappy pitch; & comp titles
“I’d love to see more YA or MG illustrated nonfiction or graphic novels about women’s rights, reproductive health, and adjacent topics (pop culture included).” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
Some #MSWL things:
1) MG fantasy, please! Especially myth-based, w/a strong focus on character, & a beautiful world/setting.
2) Contemporary MG/YA with LGBTQ+ characters.
3) MG graphic novels!
4) Underrepresented voices.
5) YA or MG that deals w/grief and/or mental health.
Hannah VanVels 🪴🌙 @hannahvanvelsGood morning, #amquerying #amwriting community!
PitMad may be over. There were almost half a million pitches, which is an overwhelming turnout! Because of that, I know I 💯 missed some things.
Query me anyways!
I'm particularly eager to build up my MG and Adult lists, but I can't resist a good PB or YA.
I'm perennially on the lookout for BIPOC, LGBT, and Neurodiverse creators in all categories.

Please check my #MSWL here manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/anal…
Link to submit is in my BIO!! 🥳❤️❤️
#mswl I’m really wanting to find a great YA where one of the MCs is transgender. If it’s cute or funny or lighthearted, all the better. Although it can also have its serious parts too. #WritingCommnunity #amwriting #amquerying #amediting

📚 It's #PitMad today! I am so excited! If I hit like on your pitch, send the first 6k of your ms, author and book info to firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking for #Romance, #fantasy, mystery, NA, #YA, #LGBTQ+, or a combination of all! #readict #MSWL #PNR @ReadictN #R #SFR
Only #YA and #MG. Whodunit mysteries like Truly Devious (riddles!). Closed door thrillers/mysteries. Witchy stories like Undead Girl Gang and The Craft, grounded in the real world. #mswl
Always looking for BIPOC writers!
If you have it and I miss it, please send anyway!
As in adult fiction, my YA interests are broad, so please feel encouraged to try me with anything contemporary for teen readers, including rom-coms. Select works of MG fiction will also be considered. #MSWL
My tastes are similar in YA fiction, but with voice and content aimed at teen readers. Some specific requests include anything comparable to John Green or Stephen Chbosky, as well as in the vein of Netflix’s Atypical or The CW’s All American. #MSWL
“Weird and wonderful tales for YA like Wilder Girls by Rory Power, They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera, and The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton.” @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation
“Stories that celebrate neurodiversity, from authors who are themselves neurodivergent, both in fiction and non-fiction, Middle Grade, Young Adult, and Adult.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
#MSWL #A #Mystery #Thriller #Suspense: I'm a huge fan of the following authors: Mary Kubica, Ruth Ware, B.A. Paris, Heather Gudenkauf, Charlaine Harris, Victoria Laurie and Juliet Blackwell (to name a few). I'd really love a #YA Mystery. Also love #ghost-y and #paranormal aspects
