YA

Been thinking about how I would like a YA or MG at an all girl's school. But not a fancy one. Supernatural elements welcome but not necessary. #mswl

Just saw @rivercitygirls while browsing for new games and now I want a spunky, over-the-top contemporary YA about two friends (or rivals) who need to work together to save their SOs that doesn't take itself too seriously, plus humor and MCs that pack a punch.

I loved The Farewell, and @awkwafina’s brilliant performance in it. I want more movies like that! And books, too. So if you’ve written a #YA manuscript like that? Make sure to send it my way. #MSWL

@chavelaque What subject would you like to see more books about?

A PB on the Atlanta washerwoman’s strike, or Pullman porters, or the Chicano rights movement; MG novels starring boys of color doing sports; MG or YA NF on topics of POC history #mswl

Here are a handful of the very specific things I'd like to find for my client list (more over at the #MSWL site!): fun & fluffy YA; political/social justice nonfiction about the sex work industry; a criminal justice-oriented look at marijuana legalization and decarceration

Just updated my listing at #MSWL with all the things I'm looking for for my client list! Writers looking for agents, I hope you'll check it out! Thank you, as always, to the fine folks of @ManuscriptWList! #amquerying manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/laur…

Have I mentioned how much I want to represent Graphic Novels? I'm open to MG and YA! Especially diverse voices and stories. #mswl.

Having lived not far from here this is a must #MSWL (YA preferably)

Thank you to the TikTok video my kids were watching this morning. May I please have a contemporary YA set in a boarding school. Could be bubbly, could be broody. You do you. #MSWL

As the holidays approach, some news:

I'll be closing to queries Dec. 1 - 31. I have a pile of queries & subs to catch up on, so please add yours to it before Dec. 1 if you wish!

#amquerying #amagenting #WritingCommunity

While I'm at it, a quick #MSWL of things I would love to see right now:

- Big-hearted contemporary MG
- MG horror
- A domestic thriller
- YA thriller/horror
- YA/A speculative/light sci-fi (think Black Mirror)
- MG/YA/A with a culinary theme

Writers Hotline: how can we help you today?

Me: I have a book deal!!!

WH: Lol

Me: ... no seriously

WH: omg, did you announce it on Twitter

Me: not yet

WH: do it!!! pic.twitter.com/LOLsoNZ2Wy

Also, because I know a lot of people think of me for sad, serious YA (and yes, please do keep sending me that!), I also do fun and funny and fluffy, and I would love to see so much more of it, querying writers, please. #MSWL

Serene *closed to queries* @serenemaria · Nov 19

General PSA that I'm only looking for projects in the sci-fi/fantasy genres on the YA side, not adult. #MSWL
