In MG: Stories that are lyrical and on the more literary range of the spectrum. Especially ones that have some invisible chronic condition representation that I think so important and something I’d love to see for this age category. #mswl

I’m YA: I would love to see stories from BIPOC creators that explores culture through things like music or food or art. The way those things can connect us to culture and also cross cultural barriers is a relatable way to explore identity, especially in the YA space. #mswl

In YA: I’m listening to Red (Taylor’s version) on repeat—my “All Too Well” ask in the Romance section might have given me away—but a story inspired by “Everything Has Changed” would be right up my alley. Bonus points if it’s set during summer vacation. #mswl

In Romance: I also wouldn’t say no to a “tis the damn season” inspired holiday story. Doesn’t have to be Christmas either, can just be about homecoming. #mswl

In Romance: Hear me out, a second-chance romance inspired by Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well”…Like a story where the timing was all wrong, but they’re older now and maybe they needed to grow up in order to work? #mswl

In Romance: All the grumpy-sunshine tropes. Seriously ALL OF THEM. If your couple comps to Roy-Keeley or Roy-Ted or whatever the f/f version of that would be, please send it to me. #mswl

Hi friends! I have updated my #MSWL for #reasons possibly relating to a celebrity breakup but also because it’s been a while & it needed a refresh! You can find my full #mswl here: evascalzo.com/mswl
But I’ll thread a few highlights #amquerying #amwriting #WritingCommunity

In YA: Gothic or horror as long as it’s not too gory. I especially love atmospheric settings and psychological horror/suspense. #MSWL 5/7

In Romance: Raunch-coms that embrace female sexuality and are fun and sexy with heroes who are supportive and never slut-shame. #MSWL 4/7

Invisible chronic conditions: I want to see characters with diabetes, epilepsy, other auto-immune diseases, where the condition is part of their identity, but not the whole of it. I want to see their joy more than their struggles. #MSWL 3/7

Oh, look at that, in one week I will reopen to queries.

I will update my various #MSWL posts and will pin them to this space, but yes...formal notice that I am reopening to queries on March 15th.

On my eternal #mswl is a romcom (YA or Adult) where one of the MCs is a Type I diabetic.

This request brought to you by the fact that my new insurance requires prior authorization on the insulin that I’ve been using for over 20 years. So now I get to pay more to stay alive.
