Always always on the hunt for diverse, creative contemporary YA that can capture the humor, heart, and playfulness of anime. 💖

Bonus if the story involves friends sharing their passions (geeky or not) or has some delicious food. #mswl

“I am interested in a variety of YA genres: contemporary, magical realism, horror, mystery, thriller, and light fantasy—just to name a few!” @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation

#MSWL I am working through queries received January 20th. I would love to see more of a few things in my inbox!
• YA contemporary. Bring me an up-to-date Girl: Interrupted! Combustible, all-consuming friendships, high stakes situations, departure-from-everyday-life stories.

Finally watching @TheCrownNetflix and excuse me WHERE is my YA mystery taking place during the Great Smog of London in 1952?! #mswl

Looking for own voices books that explore BIPOC interracial relationships! They can be adult/YA romcoms, or any genre you can think of! I’d love to see more! #MSWL

Hello! I am on the hunt for a dark, magical YA that has elements of romance but is more largely focused on Some Grand Mystery/Threat, in the vein of Chime or The Witch of Blackbird Pond. Gimme that spooky, transportive grit, especially if it’s from a BIPOC perspective! #MSWL

Stephanie Stein @stephlystein · Feb 12

I turned 30 (!!!) last weekend, an occasion I'm seizing to share my #MSWL this year:
- sweeping YA romance
- ✨queer magic✨
- savvy, commercial MG fantasy
- joyful queer & POC stories
- & POC authors with something to say
- emotional contemporary MG
- cozy af graphic novels

Also my eternal #MSWL is a project that features horses in some unique way (LOVED Sawkill Girls and The Scorpio Races). #MG or #YA

A #MSWL for this rainy Tuesday: I'd really love to see some dark, sexy, boundary-pushing YA right now. Maybe it even has crossover potential!

Agents! I’m on the hunt for a #YA #fantasy with a kickass heroine, brilliant worldbuilding, a high stakes plot and a touch of romance. Think SERPENT & DOVE by Shelby Mahurin, SHATTER THE SKY by Rebecca Kim Wells, and A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. #MSWL

Catherine Laudone @CatherineLaud · Feb 11

Agents! I’m dying to find a voice-driven #YA #romcom. The meet cute, the awkward flirty banter, the high emotional stakes—I want them all! Comps: Morgan Matson, Jenny Han, and Sarah Dessen. #MSWL
