You know what else I want to see in YA submissions? Teens having safe consensual sex & enjoying it. Not only is that how it can be in a real teen's life but I think books should be modeling that behavior. And also, teens talking & advocating for that in their relationships. #MSWL
I like seeing a teen choose to go to work instead of to college in a YA & having it be the right choice for them. Everyone deserves to see themselves in a book & not going to college is the reality for many kids. It can totally be a happily ever after. #MSWL
Rolling Stone @RollingStone.@billieeilish sat down with her hero @billiejoe for our Musicians on Musicians issue, asking him about early @GreenDay, staying sane in the industry and that time he got into a fight with a guy in the audience rol.st/2or0WUm pic.twitter.com/YlILAijmJr
Hello this is the dad -daughter YA content I want #mswl
Is it possible for a story to be sci-fi but not too sciencey? I want a YA set in space that's not fantasy but is also not super sciencey. Like, space is just the setting & the world-building doesn't feel intrusive & the story isn't necessarily about that. #MSWL
You know what I really want to see in my inbox when I'm open to submissions 11/1-12/15/19? Super romantic, swoon-worthy & humorous YA in all genres (well, not horror or thrillers). I'd particularly LOVE to see stories by #POC & always welcome the full spectrum of #LGBTQIA #MSWL
Loving being back open to queries! The genres I'm most excited to review rn are: (1) MG of any kind; (2) Nonfiction MG or YA graphic novels; (3) Narrative YA or MG nonfiction and (4) Young graphic novels (think chapter book age) See my #mswl on my site cleliagore.com/2019/10/15/fal…
Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPixUpdating my #MSWL!
I desperately want YA contemporary. Powerful female friendships fraught w/tension & drama. An updated YA Girl: Interrupted. Show me how a peer catastrophe in high school truly feels like the end of the world. Validate those moments & their impact.
Still REALLY looking for this updated YA Girl: Interrupted sort of story! #MSWL
Sometimes, I want to email my favorite authors + say, "Can I steal you for my agenting self, I love you so much?" I think I may start, at some point, out of desperation. Please send me your goodies when I re-open. Thirsty for the best YA and adult fiction. Hoping for 11/15. #MSWL
Have updated my Looking For page! Take a look and get in touch if you have something that might fit. (And please don't judge the Mariah Carey-esque photo. It was VERY WINDY that day.) #mswl
