📚 Contemporary, commercial YA with an upbeat voice, emotional stakes & a heart of gold! Send all the situational comedies, quirky coming of age & tried-and-true friendship/squad stories. #MSWL
Brit Brooks-Perilli ✨ is closed to queries ✨ @Britny_PerilliNow that we've rolled into 2021, I think it's time to focus on what I want to bring more of to @RP_Kids and publishing in general this year. I'm so grateful to have worked on some amazing books in 2020 & I'm excited to meet even more agents & authors this year. ✨📚
A #MSWL 🧵
📚 First and foremost, I'm looking for more YA and children's non-fiction by BIPOC, LGBTQ, & other marginalized creators and stories that are bursting with joy and passion -- especially when it comes to fandom/pop culture/geek stories and communities! #MSWL
Ella Kahn @elladkahnExcited to say I'll be open to submissions again from 4th Jan - 28th Feb 2021! Looking for upmarket women's fic, speculative fic, crime/thrillers, and YA. I'm in the mood for feel-good books, characters I can root for, emotionally driven stories, immersive settings & imagination! twitter.com/elladkahn/stat…
Happy New Year! Quick reminder that I'm reopening to submissions for *8 weeks only* from tomorrow morning (and I've actually updated my auto-response in advance this time!) Guidelines and my #MSWL on our website here: dkwlitagency.co.uk/submissions/ BRING ON 2021!
#MSWL - and of course, contemporary YA that is heartfelt and full of big emotions always hits home. Some favorites include I'LL GIVE YOU THE SUN, THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR, and of course client books like THE LAST TRUE POETS OF THE SEA, the upcoming INDIVISIBLE, etc.
#MSWL - I want super ambitious YA stories that feel like they somehow break the paradigm. I'd love to see multi-generational stories, stories told from odd points of view (think A.S. King!) and stories that play with genre. I want to get WEIRD in 2021!
#MSWL - something big, sweeping, ROMANTIC. I love love and I love romantic stories, whether they're romantic comedies or sweeping love stories. I want to see love against the odds stories.
#MSWL - YA or MG paranormal: vampires, werewolves, oh my! Particularly interested in paranormal from underrepresented points of view and stories that bring something new to the genre. Related: contemp fantasy a la LEGENDBORN, a 2020 fav, too.
Peter Knapp @petejknappHello, 2021, and hello to writers seeking representation this year. Happy New Year! Here's what I'm looking for...a new year, a new #mswl thread...
#MSWL: twisty, unputdownable YA thrillers, mystery and suspense. Think Tiffany D. Jackson, Courtney Summers, Karen McManus.
Shelly Romero @_smromero#MSWL Please! More horror and thrillers by BIPOC in my subs inbox in 2021! Thank you! twitter.com/amparo_ortiz/s…
Also because I loved it so much...give me a found footage-like horror YA in mixed-media format ala Hell House LLC and Blair Witch Project #MSWL
Foyinsi @OyinAtiOmiI still have not found my FLUFFY, YEARNING AND TENSION-FILLED, LIGHTHEARTED YA contemporary romance 🥺🥺🥺.

Hello 2021! Starting off the year with a new pinned tweet. Things to note about me:

- pls don’t pitch me on Twitter
- I’m open to adult & YA subs, but I have a preference for adult
- I almost exclusively edit horror
My #MSWL is here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/kris…
I’m looking for YA fantasy that is ownvoices/by marginalized voices! MENA authors, Black authors, queer authors, send me some! I love commercial fiction that’s character driven, with voice that drips off the page, high concept and tightly plotted. I’m an avid fantasy reader #MSWL
I am actively looking for Latinx voices.
For YA, I would adore a fantasy (or all of them), magical realism and romcoms. I like the light and fluffy in contemporary.
For adult, historical romances, romcoms, WF focused on relationships and magical realism. Commercial fic #MSWL
As it’s 2021, here’s a new thread of my #MSWL! Of note:
- own voices and stories by marginalized voices are always welcome
- I do not accept pitches or subs on Twitter
- agented subs only
I’m looking to actively build my list, so please consider me! I do YA and Adult
