I'm just an agent with a #MSWL looking for more BIPOC SFF/H stories in my inbox.

I don't talk about my family much on here, but since it's the last day of #AutismAcceptanceMonth and it's about to be #AAPIHeritageMonth, I'd like to say that celebrating voices from these communities is close to my heart, and their stories will always be #MSWL for me.❤️

✨ I’d love to be surprised by boundary-pushing Horror that I haven’t seen before. Though, no pandemics for me, thanks, no zombies or traditional jump scare killer-in-the-house stuff, and no sexual violence.

✨In the generes I rep, I'd love to see more projects by writers from Black, Indigenous, Latine/x, Asian, AAPI, Middle Eastern, and African communities and their far-reaching diasporas, as well as the LGBTQIA+, trans and nonbinary, and disabled and neurodiverse communities. #MSWL

I updated my website for 2022. New About page, lots of small changes, and a simplified MSWL without all the specific callouts. I do link to my twitter #MSWL thread, though, where you can still check them all out. And I'll be reopening to queries mid-Jan!✨ erniechiara.com/mswl
