And while on the topic of my nostalgia, I'd love a SF/F reminiscent of things like Cowboy Bebop, FMA:Brotherhood, or even Magic the Gathering. Let your geek flag fly! #MSWL

I used to love playing Skies of Arcadia and would love to see a MS featuring Air Pirates that will feed my gaming nostalgia. #MSWL

For non-fiction, my #MSWL is pretty simple: I'd love to see woke AF literary journalism pieces in my inbox. Something relevant with a strong, engaging voice.

#MSWL As far as retellings go, I'd love to see more historicals, fantasies, urban fantasies, or paranormal based on Aztec myths and legends. Preferably #ownvoices please.

Good morning! It's #MSWL day!

Agents + editors will be tweeting what they wish they had in their inboxes.

Writers can take note of which agents may be a good fit, and then submit work traditionally.

Need any help? @kkhendin and I are standing by!

I've been pretty vocal in the past week about what I'm looking for, but I'll say it again with the #MSWL tag!

- Thrillers! 😳 (Adult & YA)
- Horror! 😰 (Adult & YA)
- Contemporary YA 😎
- Speculative 🤔😍 (YA & adult)
- Fantasy ⚔️🔮🛡🐉(MG/YA/adult)
- Hilarious MG 😂

If someone could take the atmosphere, humor, and heart of Supernatural and channel it into a book, I will love you forever.

Are you an author that doesn’t pull punches? SEND ME YOUR STUFF.

I want ALL the heartache and amped up feels. GIMME.

Asshole love interests with hearts of gold and are full of snark and sass (think Rhysand or Spike)

MEGA BONUS POINTS if that love interest is female 🎉

Give me characters who take headfirst dives off of moral cliffs, who make mistakes

And I don’t mean “oh I said something not so nice but they forgave me”

I mean “oh my god I fucked up badly enough this relationship/my SOUL is fractured and I gotta deal w/consequences”

And on that same note—any an all LGBTQIA+ rep. ALL OF IT.

I WANT REALLY QUEER BOOKS Y’ALL.

#mswl

Cortney Radocaj @CortneyRadocaj · Sep 12

GIRLS. KISSING. GIRLS.

ALL OF THEM.

JUST

ALL THE QUEER LADIES

STEAMPUNK.

Note: I don’t want stories centered on inventors. It’s okay to have them, but I don’t want the MCs journey to be focused on inventing.

Give me the grit, aesthetic, atmosphere, and world building though!!

#mswl

Cortney Radocaj @CortneyRadocaj · Sep 12

CYBERPUNK.

GRIT. MODDED TECH. GRIMY UNDERBELLIES OF TECHED OUT CITIES.

#MSWL I’m always going to be in the mood for a literary/upmarket #ownvoices family saga. I want something deep, addresses the generational divide, and will make me cry my eyes out.

Kat Kerr @thekatsmews · Sep 12

#MSWL Still looking for my dark, twisty science fiction that could be an episode of Black Mirror.
