Kelly is CLOSED to Queries @LitAgentKelly · 31 Aug 2019

For whatever reason, I’m really craving some historical MG, YA, and Adult right now. Scotland history and mythology in the Jacobites time, Louis the XIV court intrigue, French Revolution YA, Spanish Civil War, House of Savoy unification of Italy, Russian Revolution, etc.. #MSWL

Natalie M. Lakosil @Natalie_Lakosil · 30 Aug 2019

I'll be re-opening to queries on Sept. 3; here are some things I'd love to see in my inbox! #MSWL

-nonfiction, esp. MG, YA & prescriptive and platform-driven adult (not so much PB biographies)
-POC author/illustrators
-Native/First Nations creators/authors

I need what all that this song evokes but in a novel. Bowie, the orchestra, minor chord (pretty sure). #MSWL #YA

Nature Boy - From "Moulin Rouge" Soundtrack by David Bowie

Floating a little wishlist item out to the universe, but I really want to see more kid-lit non-fiction in my inbox.

Young Adult and Middle Grade non-fiction, specifically. #MSWL

I’m so proud of the work @IamGMJohnson and @robin_stevenson are doing, and I’d love to see more.

"YA novel about teens into rock climbing/gyms. The terminology, the gear... someone write that." @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

It's my favorite tweet of the month. Here's August's visual #mswl. Do you have a book like one of these you're ready to query? Send it! pic.twitter.com/6Celp4ZIPb

I spy OMNIVORE'S DILEMMA on @wensday95's #mswl for adults, and while I'm currently closed to queries, I want to throw out there for the future that I would LOVE to see something like that for the #mg/#ya audience when I reopen. Also something on food justice for teens.

If the soundtrack to your unpublished YA manuscript is @taylorswift13’s Lover, then I WANT SO SEE IT!! #MSWL

Meredith 🎯 @mere_789

@jldallow What are you looking for right now?

Serial killers. Holding out for a child psychopath. Domestic suspense. Thrillers (in adult and YA) . Rom-Coms. Friendship breakups (YA). Male/female platonic relationships (prefer adult, but would look at YA). Otherwise, follow my #MSWL. #askagent

- Graphic novels, all ages and genres (but especially middle grade) (!!!)
- Picture book texts with social emotional learning & maybe a nontraditional family structure—and sweep me off my feet with debut author-artists!
- The voicey-est YA

#MSWL (when we re-open for unsolicited subs, or for a #NewVisionsAward entry, or agented subs): a YA novel that digs into this history. Perhaps a dual narrative of someone from that time period and someone from the present? I'm not sure. smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/its…

Tara is open to queries. 🔮✨ @Literary_Tara · 23 Aug 2019

Asking again, #mswl
I'd love to see something where the two protags are trying to bump up their TV ratings or their popularity rating (in YA or adult) and start fake dating and post cute pictures if themselves on insta. Only to actually fall in love!
Make it queer.

Okay, time for my first #mswl thread. 🎇😍

#amquerying, #writingcommunity, and maybe those looking for inspiration in your writing journey. pic.twitter.com/YmbneI7ThJ

I desperately want a really well done polyamorous YA romance. I would prefer this come from an #ownvoices author because polyamory isn't just an "open relationship" and it's not cheating. #mswl

I will also take poly romance for NA and Adult too. ;-)

Hannah Allaman @hallaman13 · 23 Aug 2019

Could someone please send me a YA contemporary novel with all the aching feels of Cruel Summer from #Lover?? Yes, I have been listening to this album all day. 🤷🏻‍♀️💕 #mswl
