YA

Sharon Belcastro @SharonBelcastro · Feb 2

I’ve become a total podcast junkie. Would love to see a #YA with a teen podcaster, podcasting sisters or friends. #MSWL

What a week. Gods of #MSWL: send me YA & MG that burns down white supremacy, misogyny, homophobia. Books to beat back the racists. Send me what terrifies them the most: your heart & humanity. More empathy today. Less intolerance tomorrow.

Danielle Chiotti @daniellechiotti · Feb 1

In my query inbox today, looking for projects that spark joy. I'm in the mood for voice-driven #mg and #ya stories that break my heart while making me laugh out loud. #MSWL #amreadingqueries #amagenting

I follow so many incredible bakers on Instagram because I'm obsessed w/ fancy, colorful, and quirky cakes, and it's making me crave a contemporary #YA or #MG featuring a mc who has a passion for baking. Bonus points if it includes a fluffy romance or baking competition! 🎂 #MSWL

Amy Stapp @AmyStappNY · Jan 31

YA Friendship stories. Girls supporting girls without competition, judgement, or stereotypical high school jealousy (I'm tired of seeing the cliche mean cheerleaders). I'm still buds with all my high school girlfriends. I'd love to see more of this in YA #mswl #YAlit

Hey writer friends!

I've been closed to submissions since the summer and... I'll be opening up again on March 1st!

Literary fiction! Young Adult books! SFF! Cookbooks! Quirky non-fiction and moving memoir! Here's what I'm looking for in 2019. #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/2019/01/30/man…

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · Jan 30

If I missed your #SFFpit pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. Adult: SFF, thriller, cont. romance, & mystery. YA: thriller, SFF, horror, mystery, & contemporary. MG: SFF, mystery, contemporary, & horror. querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.)com #diversity #MSWL #ownvoices

I’m in the mood for a thoughtful and emotional yet still funny YA to hit my inbox. #MSWL

Moe Ferrara @inthesestones · Jan 29

It's true! I'm open to queries so hit me with your best shot: querymanager.com/query/mferrara

Not only that—but I'm now open to picture books! My list is definitely children's focused in PB, MG, and YA -- but I'm selectively looking at Adult SFF and romance! #MSWL

I feel like every single query I read tonight had a car crash and dead people in it. Is everyone okay? Do we need to talk?

So jumping off last night’s tweet…my threshold for suffering is pretty low. I’d love to see less punishing stuff in my inbox. More escapist. Fanciful. Fantastical. Inventive. Romantic. Just loads less…death? MG/YA. #mswl

#MSWL Lightning Round:

--MG with a unique hook and a focus on friendship

--f/f YA that explores the lines between friendship and romance

--Adult psychological thriller that *isn't* about a woman who might be crazy/imagining the whole thing

--Adult SFF that makes me cry

Can I please have a #YA with a convo like the one in @sexeducation when Maeve shows Jackson her trailer and they open up to each other. Also i love this show so much. #mswl

Related: can i still have a #YA with a scene where all the teen girls support each other and claim to be the subject of a leaked sext like in @sexeducation? Or a similar female-supporting-female scene. #mswl

I’ve been reminiscing about my days at a specific, life changing summer camp I used to go to. Bring me back! Send me your YA or upper MG (I’m going to be extremely picky on this) stories based at summer camp. #mswl
