Top of my #MSWL: women's fiction and romance by/about underrepresented voices. Contemporary. Historical. Contemporary or historical with a magical element. Grounded SF. Romcoms. Happy books. Also, maybe a big, sweeping gothic romance?
- Adult Gothic Horror (think Crimson Peak)
- Adult High Fantasy featuring women as leaders
- Retellings of fairytales by #OwnVoices authors!!
- Spooky MG ghost stories
- MG stories with witches and elaborate settings
Jessica Sinsheimer @jsinsheimGood morning! It's #MSWL day!
Agents + editors will be tweeting what they wish they had in their inboxes.
Writers can take note of which agents may be a good fit, and then submit work traditionally.
Need any help? @kkhendin and I are standing by!
also looking for womens fiction with or without romance:
*stories that focus on some aspect of the female experience (the label "womens fic" is not entirely accurate for all experiences)
*stories that make you think
*stories that make you feel
*stories that are a fresh take
Smart, savvy, adult thrillers with a literary voice and crossover appeal. Some speculative aspect is fine. Think Tana French or Lauren Beukes. No cops. No sexual violence. Women, PoC, other marginalized folk would be ideal. #MSWL
Happy #MSWL Day! Any authors curious what Liza's wishing for? Here it is!
Zesty historical adventure/thriller
Literary women’s fiction about motherhood
Elegant, smart spy novel by someone in the intelligence community
Narrative nonfiction about a turning point in history
Hannah Fergesen @HannahFergesenIt's #MSWL day! Here are some specific things I'd love to get. I'm closed to queries currently but reopen in October, so tuck these in your back pocket for that day. Here we go!
Forever on my #MSWL: stories about women/girls/feminine folx in history. I'm personally tired of WWII, Vikings, the sixties - but there are SO MANY stories from all across history to choose from. I do a podcast about them for this very reason.
Time for some #mswl tweets! Here are just some of the things I'm looking for right now.
In general, I rep adult mystery, romance, women's fiction, some SF/F, and upmarket projects, and love to see historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction.
Carlisle Webber @carliebeth#MSWL day! To start I’m on the lookout for high-concept MG, YA, and adult fiction. More on what that means here: en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-conc…
Within that realm, I’m looking for pop fiction, contemporary, suspense, mystery, thriller, horror, women’s fiction #mswl
Ok- for my #MSWL I want fun, fresh, smart, feminist Commercial/Upmarket WF, out of the box MG that makes me want to be a kid again, unique and diverse Romance voices, and an edge of your seat YA Thriller.
I also want to add that I'm open to all kinds of historical fic--thrillers, fantasy, mysteries, women's fic, YA, etc, etc. I JUST LOVE BEING IN A DIFFERENT TIME PERIOD. #mswl
