In light of seeing #AQuietPlacemovie tonight, I'd LOVE to see all the YA and MG horror--smart, creepy, not derivative, with a twist. I'm not as into slasher horror---but genuinely suspenseful and scary. #MSWL

#MSWL Agents: I'd love to see more YA contemporary submissions in my inbox! It would be especially cool to see submissions that comp well to recent favorites, I AM NOT YOUR PERFECT MEXICAN DAUGHTER and DEAR MARTIN.

#mswl would love a serious/realistic YA (not tonally like OITNB) set in a juvenile detention center. I’m watching Netflix’s GIRLS INCARCERATED, and crying during every episode. These girls never got a fair shake at life.

#MSWL I would super love to see characters in MG or YA that are type 1 diabetic. Please please please, someone have one of those!

#MSWL futuristic YA, set in abandoned theme parks (where society has forgotten the truth of what these parks were). Aching for a creepy Disney without actually acknowledging the place that inspires the setting.

#MSWL Southern Gothic is high on my list. YA or A; historical fiction/fantasy, contemporary, urban fantasy, magical realism. Bonus points for local legend and bayou storylines.

@dinovisms MSWL?

Replying to @HannahFergesen

I was thinking clear manifestation of my severe perfectionist tendencies, but now I kind of want a YA UF about a badass girl with self-changing body art she uses to solve crimes in dreamscape sequences... #mswl

At lunch @hilaryredmon told me that the most sought after job in her NJ suburb is the ONE spot at the local indie bookstore for a high school senior. PLEASE someone write me a YA novel about two teens' cutthroat competition for that job. #mswl

Alexandra Weiss @akaweiss · 3 Apr 2018

Super specific #MSWL: I'd love to find a fun, high-stakes contemporary #MG or #YA that takes place before or during a hackathon! Less specific: If you have a #kidlit story with witty & tech-savvy characters, please query me. πŸ€“

Julia McCarthy @thejumbles · 3 Apr 2018

Dear world, please give unto me a YA novel with a @LeonoraCarring1 vibe #MSWL

Kelly Van Sant @bookishchick · 2 Apr 2018

I'm still closed to queries, but just so you know for when I open back up, I'm on a serious conartist kick. Give me your liars, your card sharks, your stolen identities, your heists, your thieves, your most persuasive criminals. YA and maybe MG. #mswl
