#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 A fresh take on vampires, alternate histories with a spin, secret societies, gothic, etc. Stories we know with a new twist in them.

#MSWL time! Gimme #YA told in new ways. Mix up chronology. Mess with convention, Tarantino-style. A jewelbox click with the final sentence.
My #MSWL also includes Southern Gothic #YA , especially if it involves the Blues or Gospel. Think CARAVAL meets the Rolling Thunder Revue.

Would love to see something spooky/Gothic/Halloween-ish in my inbox. Ghosts or witches ok, but please no vampires, shapeshifters, etc. #mswl

#YA Horror, Penny Dreadful style. (Madness, Era, Psychological trauma, asylums, experiments, Gothic, myth and darkness and evil.) #MSWL

Have I mentioned I really want a gothic romance ms to read this fall? The creepier, the better. Crimson Peak without the gory ghosts. #MSWL

YA/MG that's dark, spooky, atmospheric. Gothic and/or Southern Gothic tone. #MSWL Think CURIOUS TALE OF IN-BETWEEN https://t.co/ilePkQF7oA

Shake it down, shake it down now. Writers, I'm looking for spooky MG and Gothic horror. Humorous too? Bring it. #MSWL

#MSWL horror (gothic, bloody, any kind!) for any age I rep. I live for Halloween. Scare me!
Victoria Marini @LitAgentMarini · Jun 30
#MSWL Creepy, Gothic, Suspenseful Horror over gruesome bloody slasher horror (always).
Vicki Lame @thedaysbetween · Jun 30
YA or adult fiction in the Gothic tradition. #MSWL

#MSWL Also, YA Gothic Horror. I'm basically Catherine Morland.
Lane Heymont @LaneHeymont · Jun 30
Gothic horror in the vein of MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH. Young adult or adult is fine. #MSWL
Stacey Graham @staceyigraham · Jun 3
Loved Crimson Peak? I'm looking for Gothic horror on my #MSWL . The creepier the better, tiger.

I really, really want a gothic YA set (at least partially) in this London underwater tunnel!
Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Apr 14
I'd love to find a MG like @BeattyAuthor 's SERAFINA AND THE BLACK CLOAK. Suspensful, gothic, a great setting & unique characters. #mswl

I'd still love to find a great Gothic horror set in a creepy house (although it's gotta be as good as @RL_Stine ... NO PRESSURE). #mswl
