Rebecca Kuss @reebsthereaderi'm looking for a YA that gives me the same feeling i get when tom holland lifts up his arms and is drenched in water at the exact moment rihanna sings "gonna let the rain fall" (1:29 for reference). in other words, total joy.
Katherine Locke @BibliogatoThere are so many good non-Holocaust Jewish pitches!!!
AGENTS. EDITORS. Please please try acquiring and promoting books that aren't just about mass Jewish death. Jewish kids AND non-Jewish kids deserve to see Jewish people as heroes of their own story, not just against Nazis.
Hey #DVPit folks- just a reminder - if I miss your pitch and you think we'd be a good fit, please query! I'm especially hungry for #YA #mystery, #horror, #thriller, #romcom and #MG #horror #humor #graphicnovel right now! #MSWL
And I will most assuredly miss lots of pitches today (yay kids at home!). My queries are open regardless of today's event. I'm always looking for funny, madcap adventures in MG and big sweeping escapist stories in YA (all genres, but not the bloody ones). #DVpit #MSWL
If I missed your #DVpit pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. #A: horror, thriller, cont. romance, rom-com & mystery. #YA: thriller, SFF, horror, cont. & mystery. #MG: SFF, mystery, cont., & horror. #diversity #MSWL #ownvoices querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.) com
We're open to submissions! Guidelines here: cutt.ly/3yrOdYs I'm looking for voice-driven narratives across genres mainly in MG, teen and YA, series & standalone. Drawn to immersive settings. Good writing and strong characters vital. Feel-good and funny esp welcome #MSWL
Sophie Vershbow @svershbowWe don't talk enough about how good Stanley Tucci & Patricia Clarkson are in Easy A. pic.twitter.com/w6DhWp1idX
I was JUST talking about this with an editor yesterday! We want more great parent/child relationships in YA! #mswl.
A year ago today we were enjoying spring break travels with friends. Would give anything to travel again—but can do so through books! Would love a ms involving travel and unexpected adeventure. Bonus if it makes me laugh! #mswl #ya #mg #amagenting

Rounding off my #MSWL tweets today, in NF I’m looking for the following topical themes:
-cultural criticism (e.g. gender, race, sexuality)
-YA books about the +/- effects of the beauty industry
-parenting, reproductive health, physical wellness
Casablanca Books @SourcebooksCasaAll of us could use an escape right now, a little armchair travel, perhaps? @SEmorgenthaler's upcoming THE TOURIST ATTRACTION is what we all need. @NetGalley reviewers would agree!

This looks so good!!! I’d love a YA romance or women’s fiction featuring such a distinct setting with the warm feeling of small town tourist attraction! #mswl
A sweeping MG or YA fantasy with epic stakes, bold themes, lush writing, and relatable characters. Bonus points for series potential. MG and YA fantasy is always at the top of my #MSWL and in these times, I especially want to lose myself in a smart, well-crafted world.
Throwing out a few Monday #MSWL items into the universe while we’re all still under quarantine. I’m enjoying doing this as I’m looking to build my list right now across PB, MG, and YA, with a focus in MG. Agent friends, if we haven’t connected yet, let’s!
Kelly Dyksterhouse @KellyDHouseThis Monday morning, I’m wishing for YA with a vivid world/setting that bends the rules in its genre—whether that be genre blending or an unexpected twist to a tired trope, I want to be surprised and taken away to another world. #mswl #ya
Of course, concept like that can’t be realized without amazing characters. So bring on characters with clear desires and high stakes, whose motivation I can feel. Characters I can love (or hate) and would want to know. #ya #mswl

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife#MSWL a YA fantasy HACKSAW RIDGE. This was a war movie that felt so different to me because of who Desmond Doss was.
