I'm going onto 4+ years of agenting, + I'm still super hungry for a good thriller (I've never gone on submission with one), a good memoir (also never sub'd), + good women's fiction (also never really sub'd), along with gem YA + otherwise. Send along! Open to queries! #MSWL

And, finally, with regards to my #MSWL, as I prepare to re-open to queries: "The writer should never be ashamed of staring. There is nothing that does not require his attention." I love, love stories that capture this in terms of iconic, strong 1st person voices; observation.

Another lovely quote, from Flannery O'Connor: "Conviction without experience makes for harshness." #MSWL I'd love to find non-fiction that struggles deeply to internalize people's experiences before it comments on it--to do deeply ethnographic work, so as to prevent judgement.

I love this quote from Flannery O'Connor: "The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it." I love, love, love stories that show what is true to people's lives + people's experiences. #MSWL Send me the next SULA or the next THE BRIEF, WONDROUS LIFE OF OSCAR WAO!

For any of you who are looking to explore + wrap your minds around reflections on the structure of reality, + the way Reality informs imagination, I encourage so deeply the captivating world in @maxgladstone's THREE PARTS DEAD, the first of his Craft Sequence. (4/4)

(As I plan to re-open to queries on 05/01--#MSWL--I'll definitely be looking for fantasy & sci-fi with super distinct voices that draws on, reflects on/contemplates, and comments on reality; fiction manifests our lives, our imaginations, + I love encountering people through it.)

I'm looking for terrific books in business + finance, especially anything that can easily compel the general public into decision-making. See this book on the stock market + investing as one example: amzn.to/2vZiPxh. #MSWL (Back to reading queries 05/01!)

...statistical near-impossibility that someone would have this novel, but I want something that deals with the interior structure of the person & his/her reflection on the development of the self. My philosophical study demands intense novels (or some!). #MSWL

Idk who's been checking in the #MSWL tweets, but just putting it out there, for anyone who's researching and building agent lists: bit.ly/39h6wKf. I will be re-opening to queries on 05/01, and want adult and YA fiction, and non-fiction. Getting there!

On top of @say_shannon’s lovely PRIORY, just started @kuangrf’s debut, THE POPPY WAR, and so in love. Any super fun novels about tests + competitions, + passing them; trivia + puzzles; etc., ME WANTS. I’ll take the next, either, please, or anything @maxgladstone-esque. #MSWL

Sometimes, I want to email my favorite authors + say, "Can I steal you for my agenting self, I love you so much?" I think I may start, at some point, out of desperation. Please send me your goodies when I re-open. Thirsty for the best YA and adult fiction. Hoping for 11/15. #MSWL

I'm reading emails, queries, and tweets in the midst of a Saturday spent judging varsity debate rounds. Oh, would I love a debate novel (#MSWL), YA or adult either. The varsity resolution debates the degree to which standardized tests ought to be used during college admissions.

One of my #MSWL books is about a child or adult who is gifted: mcgt.net/checklist. <-- Questions for you, as parents and as teachers! Little gifted munchkins require a lot of support, in a particular way. Not quite the same, but...

Ready to hit the sack. Thought through more exercises for really solid #fiction #writing, + hit this sweet spot bit.ly/2m1boQI. Would love any fiction [#MSWL] from anyone who's writing/thinking like this, especially any thrillers and crime fiction.
