#MSWL Novels that are Extremely Online.
In light of my query 0, I am going to do a #MSWL tomorrow. For now, here is a snapshot:
-Fluffy YA rom-com.
-Well-written psychological friendship book (YA)
- Literary-esque but cinematic fantasy YA and MG
- Historical Fiction like @RutaSepetys
- Quirky, Fun, Voicey MG
I've noticed a trend in some of my personal reading, Tau Zero, Spin, Seveneves. They all have something in common. The stories take place over millions of years. Some humans live for eons. Some as a people evolve over time. I'm totally up to represent something like this. #MSWL
Laura Crockett @LECrockettHistorical is hard in YA and Adult but ohhhh, I love it so. Tell me a great story of under-studied women, events, and areas of history. Give me spies and queens, codebreakers and slice of life, THE ALICE NETWORK and OUTRUN THE MOON. #mswl
In all these, I want fearless or fragile female, trans, or NB characters. Teens w/sharp voices, reckless approaches,&teens w/disabilities. Characters who have never been viewed as "the perfect" anything. Outcasts, misfits, beautiful&powerful rises through extreme adversity. #mswl
In contemporary YA, I want stories where teens have departed "their usual world" for some reason. Humanitarian trips, visits to ancestral places. Immigration/refugee stories rooted in truth. An updated GIRL: INTERRUPTED style departure from their usual would be amazing. #mswl
I am opening to YA fantasy and contemporary queries! On my YA #MSWL: fantasies that are entirely new worlds,new fairytales. No generic regency-style fantasy worlds. Bring me new applications of/restrictions on new magic, uncommonly featured stars of the story, relevant parallels.

Literature meets lepidopterology - I’d love to rep a lepidopterist with an interesting middle grade non-fiction proposal about lepidopterists - esp female ones #MSWL
It's only been forever and a day but I finally updated my #MSWL profile! Now including select genres of narrative non-fiction — and basically send me all your queer fiction or creepy, lyrical middle grade books! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/moe-…
As an 🎉Agent Apprentice🎉 for @CorvisieroLit, I'll be taking pitches through conferences & pitch events (starting with #DVPit tomorrow!). Please check out my #MSWL here, & see if we might be a good match! I'm ready for all your weird & wonderful words. corvisieroagency.com/erin-clyburn.h…
See What's Next @seewhatsnextToday production began on "The Half Of It," a modern day Cyrano-meets-Pygmalion reimagining starring Leah Lewis as shy, straight-A student who helps the school jock woo the girl they both secretly love. pic.twitter.com/vHlj6sTrvV
authors! it's okay if your book doesn't match a #mswl exactly! you don't need to revise the book to fit, or write the book to meet it, or mention the mswl at all. you can just query and let it stand on its own! just because we tweet a mswl, doesn't mean that that is ALL we want.
Okay, things are about to get weird, but can someone please send me a super masculine viking who gets portaled to the future, but a future in the midst of an apocalypse, and of course there's love and adventure and he's uniquely qualified to save the day #ReverseOutlander #MSWL
