Between my new found love for Oumi Janta and binge-watching Betty, I am so ready for some rollerblading/skateboarding YA magic to happen #mswl

I'd *LOVE* a book proposal with current research (and research to come) about how Covid is disproportionately affecting women's careers in the short term and long term (as they are statistically more likely to take care the kids and step back). #MSWL

Time periods I like to read about: 1920s-present day. I don’t read a lot of historical fiction older than that. (Madeline Miller is really the only exception.) #MSWL

Plus-sized women’s fiction characters/heroines #MSWL

Science-based women’s health, perinatal health, maternal health, women’s mental health like LIKE A MOTHER by Angela Garbes. #mswl

A mix of themes I like to see explored (not all at once!): nature, motherhood, identity, making difficult decisions, travel, myth of meritocracy, feminism, longevity, family, heartbreak, secret histories, individuality, modernism, trust, class, money, race, art, memory. #mswl

I'd love something exploring ability/disability. Definitely #OWNVOICES. Non-fiction or fiction but my taste skews more commercial, not literary #mswl

Carly Watters @carlywatters · 12h

Gothic fiction with possibly a modern storyline, too (I love THE LITTLE STRANGER by Sarah Waters and THE GREATCOAT by Helen Dunmore). Give me some ghosts. #mswl

A LGBTQIA+ novel in the vein of ONE DAY (high concept, unique structure, deep and sweeping love story) #mswl

Carly Watters @carlywatters · 12h

I would love unique cookbook concepts by Black and Indigenous bloggers as well as non-fiction by BIPOC food writers #mswl

Carly Watters @carlywatters · 12h

Non-fiction about social/urban geography & how we move through our world. City planning etc leading to inequity and reinforcing racism through planning. Ideally with a feminist lens like INVISIBLE WOMEN. #mswl

Replying to @HowieSouthworth

I receive almost no cookbooks/food-related nonfiction, & I'd love to see more of those, too. #MSWL

Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburn · 15h

I'd also love to see more upmarket fiction, women's fiction, & YA horror. I'm surprised how little of the query pie these genres take up. Please send me more of them. #MSWL

Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburn · 15h

I get woefully few middle grade submissions. Y'all, I want middle grade! Middle grade is my heart! Please send me your middle grade!!! #MSWL

Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburn · 15h

I receive the next most horror and literary fiction submissions. Keep these coming, please. I receive a ton of sci-fi submissions, but I am looking for no hard sci-fi, & I get so. many. hard sci-fi queries.
