#MSWL is a twitter hashtag. It stands for "Manuscript Wish List" and is used to let us know what agents, editors, and publishers want in their slush pile.

#mswl I need martial arts stories in my life. Preferably involving elderly women putting down knitting needles & picking up nunchucks. 👵🏼

Are there any YA Anastasia retellings?? I'm watching the movie now and thinking about I'd LOVE to read a retelling.
@carlisajc I second this! Immediate #MSWL 😆

Looking for ROMCOM and YA that's not post apocalyptic but appropriate to YA (not too young or too mature). #mswl #BetterLateThanNever
Seeking suspense and sci-fi with romantic elements! #mswl

upper MG where MC is a sibling to the new child ruler! Both still growing, but each in vastly different situations #mswl
Please send immigration stories! Doesn't need to be "coming to America" either. Families on the run, worker visas, exchange students! #mswl
See @gayleforman Just One Day. High emotion w/ imperfect MC, but you still root for them to move forward & grow #mswl
Anyone have something from Aboriginal POV? Australian or other (includes Fantasy!) is a thumbs up! #mswl
In sci-fi, I'm open to tech-y universes, non-superhero or "power" universes, & craving a new sci-fi interpretation of Herland! #mswl
Sci-Fi is great, but make sure you've had a super intense editor. it's all in the details! #mswl
PLEASE, give me a female lead w/ natural hair. Make it frizzy or curly or poofy, affected by weather! No more straight long tresses #mswl
Kind of digging the road trip theme right now. Send me drives filled w/ contemporary adventure & occasional introspection #mswl #A #YA #NA
Always open to lesser-known legends, like in Supernatural (windigo, Japanese ghosts, etc.) #MSWL https://t.co/6YPILoMavS
#mswl still looking for a Lost Boy retelling: male POV, delves into HOW (fell out of carriages as babies), identity #YA #NA
Please don't send lower MG! My tastes lean toward upper MG with realistic voice #mswl
Any genre set outside US. Intrigued by India, Egypt, Philippines, Thailand inspirations. Delve into cultural legends! #mswl

Random #mswl , but if you have a MG that literally makes me laugh out loud, I'm in love with it.
For Never and Always
