Hannah Bennett @helizbennettIt's Manuscript Wish List day! Here are a few #MSWL ideas for Cleis Press. More on our list and submissions guidelines here: cleispress.com/submission-gui… #amwriting #writerslife #writerscommunity
#MSWL: unique, beautifully written erotica and erotic romance, especially featuring POC, LGBTQ+ characters, and modern love stories.
Chiming in to share my #MSWL: Adult Fiction (sry no YA etc.) #OwnVoices #RomComs #LGBT+ #SciFi #Fantasy #WomensFic #Romance
I’d love to have a Diverse RomCom in the #LGBT+ space, add a dog or cat to a WF or RomCom & 😍
Upmarket, structurally interesting, sweeping love stories of all kinds. I’d love a LGBTQ story in the vein of ONE DAY/THE VERSIONS OF US. Something like a more commercial PAYING GUESTS (which I loved, but I'm not interested in ton of capital L literary fiction right now). #mswl
#MSWL MG Diverse and LGBTQIA+ voices. Middle grade is really some of the toughest years of my life, and anything that can help them realize it's okay to be different, is helpful. Love ghost stories and stories of crushes and friendship at this age.
Lauren is open to queries again! @laurenspiellerI have a ton of #mswl tweets, as well as a MSWL page & an official Triada wishlist, but here are a few random things I’d love to see...
Bisexuality in YA. Make it sexy, make it sweet, make it NBD. Just make it. #mswl
And I'm always looking for: own voices stories in pb, mg, and ya – would love to see more neurodiverse, LGBT+ and/or stories from people (particularly women) of color. Intersectional stories always welcome! #mswl
#MSWL Also fully watching The Crown and Reign right now and looking for court intrigue, especially in courts we haven't seen much from! Mary Queen of Scots? The Spain monarchy? Maybe French Sun King type of court intrigue? Especially with LGBTQIA+ characters and maybe magic?
Still a-waitin' for a funny, sweet, sexy, romantic, lighthearted, happy, gloriously emotional romance featuring a bisexual heroine. Agents, help a girl out! #mswl #enemiestoloversismyweakness #orbosssecretary #etcetcetcwantitall #beenaskingfortwoyearsnowhaaaalp
Cortney Radocaj @CortneyRadocajIt’s here.
The day has come.
I AM OFFICIALLY OPEN TO QUERIES.
SEND ME ALL THE PRETTIES.
#amwriting #amediting #amquerying #writers #querytip
I’m currently hunting for steampunk, cyberpunk, fantasy, and sci-fi—both YA and Adult! 😊
(And if it’s gay EVEN BETTER 🎉)
Authors and agents! I just updated my MSWL editor page
this is what I'm looking for *in general* and how to submit
I will tweet more specific wishes for #MSWL Day on 9/12
See you then! 😊
Dahlia Adler @MissDahlELamaMost common requests on the LGBTQReads Tumblr:

*f/f with happy endings
*witches (Thank you for delivering on this, 2019 publishing)
*Harry Potter but gay
🐕 Jay Jacques, Professional Disaster Lesbian 🐕 @thedinojayhey fellow southern gays, can we have a fuckin?? gay heist?? to steal the chicken recipe from chik fil a and then open our own gay restaurant chain?? because I desperately crave their chicken sandwiches almost CONSTANTLY but don't want to give them my queer dollars
Okay make it a YA contemp and #mswl
I'll be quite honest, I'm tired of the white, male, straight cop. It isn't that I won't read or consider, I'm just bored and I don't want to be bored. Give me the lesbian mother fighting for her child or the POC cop. Give me more women and give me something I haven't seen #MSWL
Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessicaWhile #ownvoices and #diversebooks have caught on in YA, I'm still struggling to see it in adult and, frankly, that's what I want more of. #MSWL My target genres right now are: literary & upmarket fiction, mystery, suspense, thriller, & women's fiction.
I would love to see more POC & LGBTQ characters starring in all of these areas. I want them living their best (or not best) lives, but I'm not as interested in coming out stories as such. #MSWL
