I thought it might be worth noting that I'm not interested in novels of any genre that take place in the modern day and have military ties to the plot. Personal preference. (Yes, I'm still on my long weekend.) #WritingCommunity #MSWL #askagent
#MSWL someone write me a paranormal legal thriller, with a series in mind, with a hotshot young attorney who gets help from the ghost of former detective who can’t let his work go even in death (or something along those lines).

Léonicka @leonickaSo if you’re a writer of color with an Adult retelling of a fairytale or kids’ fable (including non-European stories) send it to me. #MSWL
I’d also be keen to read a lougarou book by a Haitian writer. I’d waive my no horror rule for that. #MSWL
Léonicka @leonickaThese books also date as far back as the 1970s. So clearly the fairytale thing is a perennial fave. Reports of it being “over saturated” might be overblown.

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeI won't say just because this is my professional Twitter but I will say I was younger than expected and my German mother had already been telling me about periods for years. Still didn't recognize mine when it happened or even fully understand what having a period meant. twitter.com/1mercysarah/st…
For any writers out there writing about menstruation (#mswl) remember that knowing=/=understanding. And also kids sometimes think they know, but they don't.
Anand Giridharadas @AnandWritesThe 30,000-foot book is a genre that tries to turn mansplaining into literature.
Should it exist?
This tweet and linked article—my nonfiction #MSWL is the OPPOSITE of these “30,000 foot books”
Rebecca Barrow @RebeccaKBarrowbeen thinking for a while how.........interesting it is that abortion books are not deemed to be Important in the way that many other social justice issue books are
Okay. If you identify as a woman and are writing a YA that involves abortion (specifically from the POV of the girl having the abortion) please send it my way. #mswl
