Just thinking how much I’d love to get a Jewish YA that is NOT centered on the Holocaust. Give me a Birthright thriller!! A Camp Chi summer romance! A Hillel set-up gone wrong!! And the more food descriptions, the better. Please & thank you #mswl #amediting
agents! i figured i should update you all on what i'd love to see in my lbyr inbox, so i'm hoping this helps light their path my way. ~please~ reach out if you have any questions or projects you think may be a fit! (please excuse typos or winding logic!) #mswl #ya #mg #pb #gn
Would love a YA contemporary that's a series of letters written to a younger sister (now 15) from a sister who died at 16/17 when girl was a 3-yo. Imagine a serious GOOD LUCK CHARLIE meets THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. Could alternate between letters & new sibling's perspective. #MSWL
Angeline⚔️Rodriguez @gelrdrgzsometimes when I think the world has lost its wonder I remember that there are special pigeons called thief pouters that are specifically bred to be sexy enough to steal other people's pigeons reddit.com/r/IAmA/comment…
Where’s this YA romcom? #MSWL
ray stoeve (they/them) @raystoevef/f YA has almost NO trans girls in it, have we ever talked about that??? that needs to change. publish more trans women. write trans girls as your LIs (WITHOUT being transphobic or weird about it or making the girl's trans status the focus of the plot/pairing).
Here is my #mswl darleyandersonblog.com/2020/02/25/mee… Generally, outside of crime, things that are uplifting & are about finding/making connections. High concept, feel-good, love stories. And across children's uplifting again, funny, things inspired by kindness and nature.
Hello 👋 I have some professional news!
Today is my first day as an agent with @belcastr and I am OPEN to queries! I’m on the hunt for diverse and inclusive kid lit projects and a few adult genres as well!
You can query me at: querymanager.com/query/HannahVa…
#mswl #ya In teen, query me with your contemporary coming-of-age stories filled with hope, your teen girl angst, and your fantasies with unexpected twists on classic tropes (see: books I had edited like Most Likely, You Must Not Miss, and The Bone Houses) 7/?
Speaking of discovering… I’m on the hunt for adult, young adult, and middle grade fiction with literary voices and commercial hooks. I love complicated female protagonists, innovative twists on classic tropes, and being swept away by fully realized worlds (real or imagined). 4/?
I love books, movies, and shows with small towns where everyone knows each other. Stories with lots of emotion. (I'm watching My Girl right now and might watch Steel Magnolias next). Would love some YA, MG, or Upmarket adult stories set in small towns. #mswl
DeidreKnight @DeidreKnightI just re-opened to queries. I had closed for a few weeks. If you have a submission with me, I'm working on reading everything. My reopening to queries doesn't mean I've caught up all reading! 😊 Please see: knightagency.net/submissions pic.twitter.com/Eocb6m7AWW
So what do I want to find, you may ask? Well #amagenting, #amwriting peeps, bring me your fiction right now. Romcom/chick lit, humor, feel-good, queer lit, ya and ya-crossover...hockey/sports. Sports romance. Ya fantasy and romcom. Really want to find queer teen lit. #mswl.
