#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.

A contemp Gothic romance w/ atmosphere you can almost touch. Take those tropes and turn them on their heads for a modern audience! #mswl 3/3

#MSWL Looking for the next SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS for adults! Creepy, dark, gothic, and writing that takes risks!

#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
