Kelsy @kelsythompsonHey #WritingCommunity, if I missed your #iswgpit and you think your project might be a good fit, or if you're simply in the #amquerying trenches: here are some things on my #MSWL (a thread)
- unique character-driven #YA contemporary with a voice that grabs you and won't let go
- #ownvoices and underrepresented narratives (I'm still looking for that #ya refugee/immigration story!)
- feminist, #LGBTQ , and sex-positive narratives
- shorter (~50k) contemporary #mg
Emily S. Keyes ❄️ @esc_keyListening to podcast with @irin about the Weinstein trial. She says, regarding his defense strategy. “She said if Weinstein is convicted, then we'll have a world in which women will never be asked out on a date and never get the door held open for them.”
Now I don’t represent genre romance, would love women’s fiction or YA about finding love after a sexual assault. #mswl
Carrie Mesrobian @CarrieMesrobianin keeping with the theme of incoherent uncertainty, let me close with this: the more sure you are about your teenaged self, or your teenaged characters, and their own certainty, the more I think you need to reflect on your life, and revise your novel
i love this and agree 100%. let teens be confused and unsure and inconsistent in their thoughts and feelings and decision-making in YA because that👏🏽is👏🏽how👏🏽teens👏🏽are👏🏽 #mswl

ellen @ellencormierMG or YA speculative fiction that's as sharp, funny, and layered as #RussianDoll. Something that uses the speculative element to say something, not just as a cool hook #mswl
Send this to meeee! #mswl
In 2020, I want to acquire more books! (It is also my job.) So, agent friends, here's a #mswl thread that I'll add to all year long.
TL;DR: Send me PB, MG & YA projects that have a distinct POV and something to say. Bonus points for queerness & a net emotional outcome of joy.
