I’d love to see more historical fiction featuring characters from traditionally marginalized communities. #mswl

Okay, those are the biggies! If you have one of those projects and you think it's ready to be queried, please go ahead and send it to me before 8/1/18! If it's not quite ready, don't worry, I'll be open to queries again in September '18.

And last but not least, I'm still open to NF if you have an existing platform. If you're not sure what that means, this will help: thebalancecareers.com/what-is-an-aut… #mswl

I also want an Adult Fantasy reminiscent of THE CITY OF BRASS--smart, beautiful writing with a great plot that *moves*. #mswl

I'm also looking for BIG WORLDS in SFF. Something commercial and swashbuckling and fun as hell. I want a ROMP. #mswl

In Adult, I'm looking for a dark, female-driven story that reminds me of Lauren Beukes. Please please please. #mswl

I'm also still looking for the perfect YA Sci-Fi. Maybe it's a space opera, but it's set in the near future on earth. Maybe it's about weapons, maybe it's about cyber warfare. Whatever it is, I'm looking for a distinct VOICE. #mswl

I'm also looking for upmarket YA Fantasy. I'm a sucker for thoughtful and elegant prose, and deep (not wide) worldbuilding that feels effortless despite it's intricacies. Contemp fantasy, second world fantasy, whatever--it's all great, as long as it sweeps me away. #mswl

In YA, I'm craving a high concept contemporary--that means you can pitch in easily b/c it has a HOOK. I love weird jobs, enemies to lovers, unique living situations, and high stakes. #mswl

I'd also love to see more MG Contemporary that showcases friendships, in particular m/f in which a crush isn't part of the plot. #mswl

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Jul 4

I'd like a YA/Adult manuscript--any genre!--that features a #FF enemies to lovers arc. #mswl

I'm starting to see more neurodiversity in my inbox, and it's making me very happy. #MSWL
