As always, across everywhere in my list I’m particularly prioritising and actively looking for creators who identify as underrepresented in publishing. My list is extremely commercial and I want to prove that these voices aren’t niche - they’re commercial too.
✨Latine/x voices in sci-fi, fantasy, and horror
✨Marginalized and underrepresented voices in contemporary YA
✨Adult literary fiction steeped in post colonial cultural identity with a touch of the inexplicable
✨BIPOC Mystery with speculative or fantasy elements.
Lastly, high concept love stories and original romcoms are always welcome. I’d love to find new and underrepresented voices in that area that are doing something different. #mswl
-contemporary fantasy in YA or MG
-MG whimsical fantasy a la Hayao Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli
-YA or MG high fantasy with a unique magic system / based on mythologies underrepresented In literature / that subverts the tropes of the genre
Kristin Ostby @kristinostbyHey, writers! I’m once again caught up on queries and eager to find my next client! Here's what I'd love to find... 🧵 #MSWL
To begin with, I’m prioritizing BIPOC creators and, more broadly, writers from marginalized or underrepresented backgrounds, with an eye out for disabled writers. #MSWL
Across the board, I’d love to see: region-specific writing (southern writers on the coastal and “convenience store” south, the Western US, or international narratives), especially underrepresented voices from these regions—
Savannah Brooks @SBLitAgentin society and what happens when they step outside of those roles (I focused a lot on my experience in various forms of recreational fighting and combat arts). This is an evergreen topic of interest to me—how society views people and, in return, how we start to view ourselves. /
How our identity is shaped by people’s reactions to us. While I’m not currently open to adult nonfiction, I would love to see contemporary fiction that grapples with these same questions in thoughtful, surprising ways, especially from underrepresented perspectives.
Narrative nonfiction (all categories):
- Geek culture
- Food & Wine books; or tie food & wine to travel
- Science (especially if it's space-driven or about tech advancements)
- History (especially those by and about underrepresented voices in US History) (6/6) #mswl

Querying authors, I’m pumped to share that I’ll be open to queries from February 15-April 15! I’m looking for YA and MG in all genres. Bring on all the plot twists, vibes, beautiful writing, and underrepresented voices! #MSWL
I think I haven't mentioned what I'm looking for in a while: thrillers for adults and romance/rom-com for adults that have fresh hooks. Upmarket fiction from underrepresented perspectives. I am not open to expanding my children's list at the moment. #MSWL
Caitlin White @caitforestellTo writers who submitted before I closed last time: I still have a handful of outstanding full manuscripts that I am reading, and I will be getting back to everyone soon! Thank you for your patience and understanding through a busy fall and holiday season.
And to help #amquerying writers, here's some of my #mswl in a thread.
ALWAYS looking to partner with and support writers of color, writers who live with disabilities (me too!), neurodiverse writers, and otherwise underserved and underrepresented authors in #YA and #MG.
In ALL formats, I'm excited by:
🌟Original, unforgettable characters w/ potential to become beloved household names
🌟Expansive, unique, cinematic worlds—whether imagined or a part of the real world that’s underrepresented and/or feels fresh through the creator’s eyes #MSWL
