I dug through hundreds of obituaries & spoke to gay ballplayers from the 1940s up through the 1990s to find the queer history of women in baseball that we stand to lose if it isn't documented. narrative.ly/the-hidden-que…

This piece on the queer women of baseball is brilliant and worth a read to start off #Pride. Also, if anyone's writing a queer take of A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN, please send it my way! I'd love to find a F/F historical YA sports project. #MSWL

me: furious that somehow May is already over when I am so behind in everything

also me: OKAY JUNE 5th; bring me your BRUJA BORN and STILL LIVES and SOCIAL CREATURE *

*#mswl to all of these, complex women and girls struggling to be themselves in hostile worlds, magic or not

I really like books about moms and cannot believe I really don't have books about moms. Women's fiction or domestic suspense #MSWL

One Track Literary Agency @onetracklit · May 25

Submissions Call: Women's fiction of a darker vein/spirit (think Mavis Gary in movie Young Adult), complicated sisterhood/friendship narratives, starting over stories that don't spark fm cancer or infidelity, a rock/music band of older women (Dixie Chicks, Go Gos, etc.) #MSWL #WF

Really craving edgy, messy characters in my YA manuscripts - especially young women who make mistakes and fail and try and succeed. Send me some messy YA contemps, people!

#MSWL Currently looking for a Japanese or half Japanese-American writer of women's fiction or romance for an IP project. Southern roots a bonus. Pls email me at info@hollowayliteraryagency.com

It's impossible to have too many books set in libraries--#SFF, #WF, #R, #S, #YA. All genres need more books set in libraries. With librarian heroes. #MSWL

Great news! I'm now officially up on the #MSWL website. Feel free to check out my bio, and if your project matches my interests, I'd love to see your query in my inbox.

I am still actively looking for new clients. Women’s fiction is on my #MSWL. I’d love to find some beach reads and romance that crosses over into the women’s fiction realm. I’m also hungry for more nonfiction—especially narrative and/or those with a culinary bent.

A partial list of some of the coolest moms of science fiction and fantasy:
- Molly Weasley (Harry Potter)
- Catelyn Stark (Song of Ice and Fire)
- Mrs. Murry (A Wrinkle in Time)
- Queen Ramonda (Black Panther)
- Tenar (Earthsea)
- Alana (Saga)
- Essun (The Broken Earth)

Consider this whole thread a #MSWL

I want stories about good moms and bad moms, dedicated moms and indifferent moms, moms who move mountains for their kids and moms who do amazing things in spite of having kids.

All these women existed—and continue to exist.

Happy #MothersDay.

I also want anything to do with women. Self-empowerment, women bartenders, journals for women. You get it. #MSWL
