I'd planned to stay open to queries until the end of May, but I have so much amazing work in my inbox and a number of clients going on submission soon & therefore need to focus on what I have atm.

Closing Monday, so if you've been waiting it's time to submit!

#MSWL sports pls!

Happy to announce that I'm open to queries again! (Still working through a couple submissions, thank you authors for your patience)

And while I'm super disappointed in the Phillies' opening performances, I nonetheless am asking for baseball stories. #MSWL

Non-Fic #MSWL request. I'd love to see a narrative non-fic about running—humorous & uplifting voice be great. Memoir-esque, but informative.

Author must have a platform, and ideally either will have been a competitive runner or coach/trainer but not necessary.

Today's #MSWL !

Multi-character, multi-timeline, multi-theme literary works that feel like short story collections but tie together into a novel.
Stories must have scene arcs, not be merely vignettes.

Eg: OLIVE KITTERIDGE by Elizabeth Strout or THERE, THERE by Tommy Orange

Today's #MSWL item is VERY specific:

I want whip-smart absurdist OR speculative literary fiction that acts as satirical or hyperbolic commentary on the oddly accepted parts of culture and society.
Eg: Kevin Wilson's NOTHING TO SEE HERE or Jessamine Chan's SCHOOL FOR GOOD MOTHERS

My next #MSWL

Literary “Romance”—I want a deeply thematic & potentially twisted story about complexity of relationships/ love.

HEA ok but prefer not.

Lots of interiority but center around an external happening!

LGBTQ+ yes! But prefer when sexuality is not the main conflict

BIG #MSWL item for me:

Upmarket fiction, #ownvoices #Indigenous stories that feature sports. Think Olympics, long-distance running, rock-climbing, snow sports, mountaineering, etc.

Ideally with strong character arcs and a commercially appealing external plot.

#MSWL time!

I'd love to see mysteries/thrillers (literary or upmarket) with deep, psychological interiority that shows voice and personality. Think Searcher by Tana French, or Birnam Wood by Eleanor Catton.
Extra interested if there's a faux/red-flag love interest involved.

To ramp up, I'm going to share some #MSWL details over the next couple weeks. . . stay tuned!
