Have you ever accepted a query of an MS that wasn't in your wishlist or do you always preferred MS within your Wishlist only? #askLitAOC

Definitely. Agents use #MSWL for our specific requests and wishes (ie: I'm dying for a survivalist, plague-filled YA but... I want other stuff too), and always welcome surprises that are still within our interests. #askLitAOC

I'm looking for #middlegrade and #youngadult stories. I like realistic contemporary; magical realism; well done retellings of fairytales, folklore, legends; love stories; most anything feminist af. I don't like horror, thrillers, murder mysteries, or anything super scary. #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · Apr 1

I will be open to middle grade & young adult manuscript submissions only from April 1st through June 30th, 2019. Please check #MSWL to see what I'm looking for.

I’d love to see more YA thrillers with wonderfully drawn and complex characters, in the spirit of ONE OF US IS LYING #MSWL

This seems an appropriate IF TRAGIC night to reassert that I am always, always hungry for a YA Broad City, because this friendship? Legendary 💜 #MSWL

#MSWL Black Mirror type stories in YA or adult, like the book No One Here is Lonely. Would love some creepy YA mysteries. Mysteries like The Truth Lies here and This is Our Story.

I’m back from maternity leave in a month and I want all the submissions, especially YA contemporary #MSWL

Julia McCarthy @thejumbles · Mar 27

Hello hello, I am very much seeking a YA novel like Darius the Great Is Not Okay that centers on queer WoC #MSWL

We got any fashionistas out there? @TaherehMafi’s A Very Large Expanse of Sea has my #MSWL pining for a #YA novel where fashion—and the liberation of clothing autonomy—unites unlikely friends.

Yes, we need dark stories in MG/YA because kids need to have their problems/struggles acknowledged. But please remember to infuse hope. I want less focus on the trauma/suffering and more on successes and healing. Marginalized kids need to know they deserve happy endings #MSWL

Time flies when you're having fun! In my first 6 months of agenting I've built a client list I'm SO proud of. Here's an updated #MSWL (for the next 6 months & beyond!): author-illustrators, slice-of-life chapter book series, girly middle grade (all genres), and contemporary YA.

Kurestin Armada @kurestinarmada

Shion/Sean and Tsubasa have apparently broken up, sooooo love is canceled

In light of this terrible news I need some amazing YA rom like the Tsubasa/Shion relationship on Terrace House. I basically want shoujo manga storylines please #mswl 😭😭😭💔

Tia Rose Mele @TiatheTiger · Mar 25

Opening day is this week so here’s your regular reminder that if you have a baseball themed YA/MG/women’s fiction/romance PLEASE send it to me. #mswl (and I’m especially interested if it deals with MiLB!)

Clelia Gore @MadmoiselleClel · Mar 25

I want more YA nonfiction! #mswl A deep dive into a really interesting part of history that has modern resonance; an investigation into a recent news event; a cool historical anthology; a topical memoir; books by real inspiring teens; how-to books & guide books. Send to me!
