#MSWL I've also always wanted a wf book about perfume. Which, let's be honest, probably has some sort of magic in it? But maybe not!

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?

Mary C. Moore @Mary_C_Moore · Sep 12

Latinx voices, all any stories, MG and women’s fiction. #MSWL

Upmarket Women’s Fiction that’s fun #MSWL

#mswl I want dense, thinky, hard SF by women. Show me the physics or the biology or the chemistry behind your world, and I'm all in.

Lydia Sharp @lydia_sharp · Sep 12

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

#MSWL American Horror Story: Coven...but good. Gothic boarding schools, empowered women, clash of ideals, exploration of how history and culture shapes magic

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

It'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.

Women’s and girls’ sports, especially soccer #MSWL

Cassandra Farrin @CassaCassaCassa · Sep 12

Assertive but forgotten women in the arts, science and math #MSWL

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu · Sep 12

I really want a contemporary women’s fiction that takes it out of middle class white working woman territory! #mswl

Natalie M. Lakosil @Natalie_Lakosil · Sep 12

Dying for more magical realism women's fiction, or #ownvoice women's fiction contemporaries #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Sep 12

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.

Jessica Watterson ON HIATUS @JessWatterson · Sep 12

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.

Susan Velazquez @susannprogress · Sep 12

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
