Seeing lots and lots of YA fantasy, but not much YA science fiction. Where my YA SF at? #MSWL

Susan @smnystoriak · Feb 4

#MSWL update! Looking for YA or A: clean Victorian romances; cozy mysteries with quirky sleuths; esp. if you have either with unreliable narrator. Any "artsy" connections would be a plus! Send QL+first 15 pages to submissions@goldenwheatliterary.com, with my name in the subj.

Within the immigrant experience, there's so much I'd like to see reflected in all subgenres. (1/2) #MSWL

The desire to both assimilate & hold tightly to your culture, the very real fear, food-is-love, the closeness of family. Of course, there isn't only one way this plays out, & I want to read them all! #MG #YA #MSWL (2/2)

Young adult realistic stories about female friendships and making your way in the world that can be comped to The Bold Type. #MSWL

I badly want to see more first or second gen immigrant stories and ones that reflect the multi-generational experience in mg and YA. I want to read about others experiences and hopefully, see my own reflected as well. #MSWL

Speaking of allegory, I am all about rich, layered symbolism at every turn - names, characters, plot, setting, tiny, seemingly insignificant details that are actually hugely symbolic of glorious truth. If you have a #YA #CF #fantasy like this, I'd love to see it. #MSWL

Penny Moore @precociouspenny · Feb 3

Send me your YA/MG fantasies featuring mythical beasts. @nickipaupreto’s Crown of Feathers and @ktzhaoauthor’s The Dragon Warrior have left me wanting more! #mswl

Penny Moore @precociouspenny · Feb 3

I’d love to see YA featuring younger teens. Give me your fun and quirky stories about starting high school for the first time, with all of the mixed up drama and feelings that come along with it. #mswl

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

Alex Slater @abuckslater · Feb 1

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!

Alex Borbolla @Alex_Borbolla · Jan 29

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
