Hi #writingcommunity! I would love to see more Ace rep and platonic rep in YA fiction. If you have a YA contemporary or YA magical realism with either of these as a strong element in the story send the first three chapters and a proposal my way #MSWL
I’m really enjoying Ted Lasso on Apple+ I feel like a YA book about an American HS football player who lands in England playing soccer could be a cool story! Throw in a little teen romance and cross-cultural misunderstandings and I’m in! #mswl
Lastly, my #1 #mswl is a YA or adult queer VICIOUS. I love the dynamic between Eli and Victor, and it doesn't have to be SFF, I just want that best-friends-turned-"I want to kill you" enemies with lots of sexual tension. To add to that, I love Killing Eve and need that as well.
Eva Scalzo 🇵🇷 @evascalzoHi #amquerying friends! I have officially fully re-opened to queries. I'll thread a couple of #mswl related tweets, but I'm so excited to see your projects in my inbox, which can be found at this handy link: QueryManager.com/evascalzo 1/
Reminder: I represent Adult Romance and SFF and across all genres of Young Adult fiction. I do not represent literary fiction, poetry, screenplays, or nonfiction—not even narrative nonfiction or whatever autofiction is (something I've seen recently in queries). #mswl 2/
tara 💫 open to queries 🎉 @Literary_TaraI had a dream where we went to this old house where an old lady lived, and she gave off creepy vibes that weren't natural. So after we all were assigned our rooms and everyone was asleep I went searching. There was a part of the house that was off limits. It was familiar to me...
My #2 #mswl queer horror stories in MG, YA, and adult. Horror in all shapes and sizes. I'm usually not a slasher or body horror person, though. I like psychological and supernatural, usually. Maybe something where the environment is the antagonist. Also... twitter.com/Literary_Tara/…
My #3 #mswl I cannot stress enough--I need YA and adult RomComs. Super funny, super cute, super smart, and full of emotion like RWRB. I really need a David & Patrick (from Schitt's Creek) romance. #romancelandia where you at?
Wow. Just finished @BoysStateMovie and it's fantastic.
The friendships, power grabs, and how it's a microcosm of our current political climate is just so good.
Would love to see a contemporary YA that takes place at Girls State #mswl
IN THE DREAM HOUSE, FRESHWATER, etc.
✨ all the queer horror! (YA and adult)
✨ complex + complicated mother/daughter, sister/sister, + best friend relationships
✨ more protagonists who are fat, trans/non-binary, mixed-race, dark-skinned, etc. (4/7)
Amber Sparks🪓 @ambernoelleI have discovered that in the 90s there were young people who Sega hired to just wander around sororities and fraternities parties and plug in a Sega and start playing
A modern equivalent of this is a great setup for a YA-crossover or adult romcom. Send me your books about gamers falling in love. #mswl
i am still closed and catching up on lots of reading, but.... if you have a YA or MG with monsters rooted in underrepresented mythologies/cultures/folklore/history (#ownvoices only please)... well, i'd like to see that. can be fantasy or contemporary! #mswl
DIY, memoir, etc. Across STEM, the arts, history, sports—the whole NF gamut! Or (2) If you have experience as an MG or YA nonfiction writer, send me sample writing and a list of subject areas that interest you. If you don’t have experience but have high interest, I ask that u...
To expand on my previous #mswl tweet concerning MG and YA NF. I’d be interested in seeing: (1) book proposals with sample writing (a chapter or two plus an outline of whole book) for *commercial* nonfiction book, including focused histories, narrative NF, advice book...
I'm always, always looking for more #MG and #YA nonfiction writers. I'm open to all kinds of topics, as long as it has a strong commercial hook. I also have like 144839 market-ready ideas for nonfiction books that I'd love to develop with a talented writer. #mswl
