Agents: on my #MSWL I’m looking for YA fiction centering the Stonewall Riots and trans POV. Email me!

Here’s a Friday #mswl call-out for #history + #mystery! I love the #EnolaHolmes movies and just watched #lidiapoet. Would love to see more along these lines in the #ya and #upmarket spaces in my #submissions inbox. #amquerying #amwriting

I rep PB, MG, YA, GN, and select A genres. I keep my MSWL fairly up-to-date. There are a few areas that I'd love to build my list our more robustly in the coming months. #MSWL
Query Manager is live again!
Good time as any that I am looking for YA and Adult fiction, with an emphasis on Contemporary, Romance (but not necessarily rom-coms), and Horror! #mswl I want funny, sharp, and dark wit the most :)
A thread of recent faves in next tweet!
Also if someone can figure out how to give me a cozy mystery as a YA, I want it. #MSWL
Also might be controversial, I want post high school (summer before college, or the first "year" of college) type stories. But since not every kid goes to college, I want to see how the come of age by leaving childhood behind.
Looking for YA themes though, not "baby adult" #MSWL
-mermaids that never go in the water
-magic worlds that are different from what we have been seeing.
-Dark Whimsy/Cozy Magic
-Twisty murders (LOVE Rian Johnson and if you can comp to the vibes there, even better)
-EPIC Romances (romantasy and romcoms and straight romances)
-Lush worlds and atmospheric writing. #MSWL #YA
But if we are going contemporary, I need to elevate it. Kit Frick is a forever comp, but if your book comps to TRULY DEVIOUS or FEMAL OF THE SPECIES, I would be here for it. #MSWL #YA
I am in the reading mood for fantasy right now. I want writing like Margaret Owen with the snap crackle and pop of Sarah J. Maas's characters #MSWL #YA
So I would love a writing style that vibes with these books: THE WINNER'S CURSE, THE GRACE YEAR, FINDING JUPITER, and BIANCA TORRE IS AFRAID OF EVERYTHING #MSWL #YA
Let's do a #MSWL thread for YA because I need more YA queries. Looking to sign more for my list.
Just landed in Bologna & excited for this year’s fair! Authors, I am looking for something new & exciting. My dream #MSWL is a YA Piranesi meets We Were Liars. If you’ve written such a masterpiece, please send it my way! Thank you! 🤗 💖 Sub guidelines at skylark-Literary.com
Lauren Spieller is open to queries! @laurenspiellerOkay YA Twitter, where is my spooky YA fantasy? Where’s my ghost story? My haunted house? My deadly secrets? My poison book? I want vibes, people! VIBES!
But also a plot that works and strong character development and a magic system that functions.
And VIBES! pic.twitter.com/NXnijrJ8gu
Sorry this is #mswl!
