#mswl a YA superhero story with both save-the-world and personal stakes, and a bunch of teens who screw up over and over but have each other’s backs no matter what. (So like Runaways or Cloak & Dagger)

I'd be interested to see a YA nonfiction guide to money that acknowledges the gig economy, high cost of secondary education, lack of pensions, etc. How can today's teens/late millennials prepare for a much different financial reality than previous generations? #mswl

In YA nonfiction, I'd be interested to see some guides to activism (including eco and political activism) written for teens from somebody with a solid platform. #mswl

I'd still love a super witty and clever beach read/romcom in YA. #mswl

This year, I'd love to see more trade non-fiction for children and teens that goes beyond a traditional biography! Show me science, history, cultural movements, our planet, etc. in ways I haven't seen before! (bonus points if it's a graphic novel!) #NonFiction #pb #mg #ya #mswl

@ericsmithrocks What YA would you like have come across your desk?

When I open up for queries again (Springtime?), I am desperate for some more YA SFF genre blending novels, with the kind of expert world building I've seen in @RantingOwl @heidiheilig and @SanguMandanna's books. #MSWL

I just started reading this yesterday, but would love stories like this in #YA #contemporary #MSWL I'm drawn to the mystery and drama in it. goodreads.com/book/show/3233…

Hello #amquerying #writingcommunity - I open to submissions in less than 24 hours! Curious what I’m looking for? A full list can be found on the @MetamorphLitAg website or QueryTracker, but here’s a little #mswl to get you started. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!

Also, I just saw the trailer for Bird Box with Sandra Bullock and I will totally be all about that comp title for any incoming YA or MG manuscripts. #MSWL

13) Cute, funny contemporary YA romcoms that are driven by dynamic characters. #MSWL

12) I’m dying for a YA set during the 1920s. Something sharp like gin or bubbly like champagne. #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 21 Dec 2018

11) I’m still desperate for a good YA horror. Something dark and disturbing. More eerie than gory, and grounded in reality (no supernatural killers needed). #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 21 Dec 2018

10) I want more YA stories where the dynamic friend duo is front and center (and any romantic relationships take a backseat) #MSWL

7) Send me the hungry ones, the MCs who want something so badly, it rattles their bones. Who encourage their ambition. (YA) #MSWL

6) Send me your jagged girls, the ones who broke and put themselves back together. The ones who don’t hide what they are (YA). #MSWL
