For #YA contemporary, it’s the same idea minus going space bound & magical realism. Cultures are magical to me and there are so many to learn from. Show me transparency on love and intimacy in EMBROIDERIES, and the burden of familial obligations in IT ALL COMES BACK TO YOU.

For #YA SciFi, fantasy and contemporary, I love a trope where the younger generation is showing the older one a new way to thrive. Break generational trauma like in THE INHERITANCE OF ORQUIDEA DIVINA, and rebel to outer space to follow your own path in BINTI.

We love YA contemporary with big emotional hooks, whether they be rom-coms or coming-of-age. Think COUNTING DOWN TO YOU, YOU SHOULD SEE ME IN A CROWN, WE ARE OKAY, GIRL IN PIECES. #MSWL

Reality sucks, so give me escapism. Send me your adult thriller, your YA thriller, or YA romance, or YA sweet friendship story, or or or. I have enough problems right now, I NEED to escape. #MSWL

YA and Adult science fiction and fantasy that escapes tropes and plays with my expectations and my heart: like Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir or The World Gives Way by Marissa Levien #mswl #YAsff #AdultSFF

Hi, agent friends :) It's about that time: New Year, New #MSWL 📚✒️

I edit picture books, middle grade novels, and YA novels/nf, as well as select graphic novels across genres.

I prioritize intersectional stories that center BIPOC characters & their unique, varied experiences.

For YA, I'm more turning to Historical, Contemporary, and Contemporary Romance. Super selective on Fantasy and Paranormal right now, though would still love to see concepts on witches or ghosts (and vamps if unique!)

🌟 Chaotic 2022 #MSWL thread🌟
Contemporary YA, either light rom-com style such as To All the Boys, or darker themes such as those in Before I fall. Sexy pirates, and mermaids. MAGICAL ACADEMIA/dark academia. Throw in an oddly attractive classmate.
