It's not even out yet, but I'm already chomping at the bit for a commercial WF reminiscent of #TheGoodPlace #MSWL

Season is over, but still applies... I want that ultra high concept, genuinely funny commercial WF #MSWL https://t.co/d8oUvO59Tp

What are you on the lookout for in your submissions? #okscbwichat

@diversecrime ah, the #MSWL Q. Love it. Honestly don't know until I see it. But love funny. Looking for heartland stories. #okscbwichat

In MG, I'd love to see a fun girl-driven adventure story, like a MG Indiana Jones. Diverse leads & authors very, very welcome. #MSWL

I've been obsessing over CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND recently, and would love to see a YA comedy that balances earnest/sweet with funny. #MSWL

Just finished and loved THE REGULARS. Send me women's fic that's similarly smart, funny, feminist, moving, quotable. #MSWL #FridayReads

Dana Murphy @manadurphy · Feb 8

A romantic comedy that is actually both romantic and funny and maybe even high concept, a la my favorites the @fuggirls ROYAL WE. #mswl

Lorin Oberweger @AuthorLor · Feb 8

Also, funny, tender, & HOPEFUL stories will get lots of love. Protags w/ will & self-esteem. Send fulls via https://t.co/RYrGZp8YVW #MSWL

Amanda Shih @amandashih · Feb 8

Tough to fit resistance guides in my list, but send your creative, clever funny, books that include and lift up strong women/PoC/LGBTQ #MSWL

Dana Murphy @manadurphy · Feb 8

A scary, funny YA novel about a banshee. Think Crazy Head meets Teen Wolf (if Lydia was the protagonist). #mswl

Gemma Cooper @gemma_cooper · Feb 8

Always looking for animal POV for MG and chapter books - funny or heartwarming or animals going on adventures #MSWL https://t.co/rZ5QLwB6Jg

Katie Heit @katieheit · Feb 8

My first #MSWL ! Funny middle grade (bonus if boy mc) and ya with strong female friendships! Especially looking for #ownvoices

Stephanie Stein @stephlystein · Feb 8

Would love to find more outrageously funny, very present narrators. Think Gidwitz, Snicket... but also things like Jane the Virgin. #MSWL

Mekisha Telfer✨ @MekishaTelfer · Feb 8

Please send your funny, sex-positive, sex-informative (educational?🤔) #YA manuscripts my way! #MSWL

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Feb 8

#MSWL - YA contemporary that is funny and has that anything-is-possible energy of a Friday night when you're a teen… https://t.co/1ZUbCaVgqE

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · Feb 8

I also really love to laugh (well who doesn't?) and want more funny #MG and #YA . #MSWL

Rena Bunder Rossner @renarossner · Feb 8

Give me funny, adorable, classic Middle Grade and Picture Books like Captain Pug. (My kids are obsessed!) #MSWL https://t.co/4SXDHHXv2n

Susan Miller @sue_mill · Feb 8

Smart, funny upmarket fiction about a blended family and a crisis that tears everyone apart, told from different perspectives. #MSWL

Bridget Smith @bredalot · Feb 8

The thing I want most right now is f/f contemporary YA that's funny, poignant, warm, & layered, a la Emma Mills. Esp. #ownvoices . #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · Feb 8

I'm a sucker for poignant contemporary MG/YA that's also really funny. #MSWL

Bibi Lewis @Bibi_Lewis · Feb 8

Funny and smart murder (or non) mysteries ala Clue or Miss Fisher's #mswl
