I know lots of people are calling for novels to make them laugh, but I am still looking for my beautiful novel on grief, Twitter. Break my heart in the most literary, unexpected way possible, please? #MSWL

Agents, the updated Amberjack Publishing #MSWL is now online. Always happy to chat in more detail about projects and fit. amberjackpublishing.com/submissions/

Cassandra Farrin @CassaCassaCassa · Sep 12

Another gentle reminder: The Amberjack publishing team as a whole is diverse (often intersectionally!) and women-led. While we welcome stories by all authors, we strongly encourage stories by authors of color and other underrepresented backgrounds. #MSWL

This is not an exhaustive #MSWL, so agents with projects in the spirit of this list can send those my way. Gentle reminder that we are open to AGENT-ONLY submissions at this time, but authors are welcome to refer to their agents to us if they see a good prospective fit.
