Women

So, I've been thinking about the number of times that I, as a female agent, get told by a male (unagented) writer that I am doing my job wrong, or "not helping enough", etc. on the internet. The number of "performance reviews" from strangers who are not my boss is incredible.

Thread by the wonderful& articulate @TracyMarchini who puts into words what frustrates us often.
Also, this highlights WHY I ask for what I do on my #MSWL : Women characters in major decision-making positions; male characters comfortable w/that, as role models for kids.

Denmark has erected its first statue of a Black woman. ‘Queen Mary’ honors Mary Thomas, a resister of colonial oppression pic.twitter.com/x8B6uRYMt0

Okay so Queens of the Fireburn is an incredible title for a fantasy novel, so if someone could take inspiration from this bit of history and write an epic fantasy about a trio of black women rising up and starting a magical revolution that would be great #mswl #ownvoices

#MSWL : women, diversity, and #ownvoices in sci fi.
Also desperately in need of a fantasy that takes me to an unexpected, far off land. Preferably with LGBTQ+ elements.

Also would love to see some #upmarket women's fiction w/ a unique hook and/or a hint of magical realism #MSWL #WF #MR

I follow lots of body-positive Instagram accounts & self-made makeup/style experts who are not white, who have a disability, etc. Would love to see a WF title (or romance) with these sorts of elements. #mswl

Off-season #MSWL - psychological suspense about a surrogate that explores the loss of self with pregnancy, esp. with someone else's child, and how women's bodies are used as tools apart from themselves

A #mswl reminder: I'm always looking for more WoC / #OwnVoices writers in my inbox!

Still looking / always looking for WoC / #OwnVoices authors in my slush pile. #MSWL I'm really in the mood for a fluffy contemporary YA or Women's Fiction and craft related NF

I would love to find a suspense or women's fiction about a woman in a polygamist family/marriage. So many possibilities. #MSWL

After a long spell of reading dark fiction I sure could use some upmarket and lighter women's fiction, especially with a HEA #MSWL
