Writers, when you send your #MSWL submission to me, please use the hashtag in the subject line, as I'm mostly closed to submissions.

I would love a feminist-as-hell YA about a coven of witches. I can imagine a bunch of awesome interpretations of this setup. #MSWL

Yes! This would be awesome. #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · Jun 30 2016

Closed to submissions July 1st. Only taking queries as followup to conferences, if I already requested your ms, or in response to my #MSWL

Would love a character driven (not plot driven) YA sci-fi love story w/diverse characters. Not post-apocalyptic. Not dystopian. #mswl

Yearning for a voice-y solidly MG story with a non-white main character in a non-urban setting. #ownvoices #mswl

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · Jul 28 2015

PB, MG & YA authors, although not open to submissions currently, please query in the fall. Fiction, nonfiction, narrative nonfiction #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · Jul 28 2015

Would love some more stories with diverse characters where "diversity" isn't the story. #MSWL

#MSWL A character driven, middle grade mystery with yarn bombing (I've been asking for this for 4 years!)
