#MSWL adult fantasy (epic/high) in world inspired by less-seen-in-SFF cultures. No vamps, weres, witch/wiz, god/Angel, fae/elf, elemental/spellcasting etc tropes - instead show me NEW magic, NEW creatures, or wild twisty fantasy world/political structures.

#MSWL: Adult Fiction: I would love to read a novel with twists on classic noirs that play with genre conventions. OR an edge of your seat psychological thriller. OR a thriller that is set in 1950s NYC.

Guys, my intern made this beautiful aesthetic post for my commercial adult/women's fiction #MSWL. Does he know me, or what?! Full frontal feminism and male-dominated fields and deep friendships and retro aesthetics and mother-forking Kristen Bell, oh my!😍😍😍

Watched the Lord of the Rings trilogy over the weekend. Would love to see adult epic fantasies featuring BIPOC characters written by BIPOC authors in my inbox. #MSWL

*Don't @ me about books or authors that are already out there. There can be more than one, or two, or ten...*

Yesterday in a pretty high level film meeting, the managers told me that they’re hungry for more Afrofuturism.

*pinches self*
*is already awake*

Yeah, so it was already #mswl for me but now it’s even more so. MG, YA, adult sf/f, or graphic novels, please!

Adult Contemporary/Romance Writers! I would like to sign a project that reads like Bridget Jones/Crazy Rich Asians/The Hating GAme--funny, fast paced, and clued in to social questions. #MSWL

I'm a huge sucker for fantasy, both in YA and adult. I'm especially seeking rich, vibrant worlds that are diverse. If your story has a setting that is powerful enough to be it's own character, I'd love to see it! #MSWL

I badly want your contemporary adult romance with heroes and/or heroines who are from marginalized communities. I know traditional romance publishing has not always been welcoming, and I respect authors who prefer to self-publish, but if you want to try, I want to try. #MSWL

I've (finally!) updated my #MSWL page. #amquerying writers, please stop on by to see what I'm looking for! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/laur…

My #MSWL includes, among other things: MG/YA fiction & adult fic/NF by authors who are: trans and/or non-binary or otherwise not cis, disabled and/or #actuallyautistic, and/or Indigenous. Including any intersections thereof, & whether or not the work focuses on identity.

Updated my #MSWL page: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/jill…
I am currently looking:
Children's: PB, MG, YA Fiction and Non-Fiction
Adult: Non-Fiction only. Open to almost anything but author must have a platform, be it as a subject matter expert and/or an online following.

Someone please write me an Adult SFF about a mother motivated by ambition, love, and fury. #mswl
