Lauren Is Closed To Queries!
Ruoxi Chen @jruoxichen#MSWL day: I'd love to see more F/F in my inbox. give me your adult WILDER GIRLS, your righthand women fiercely defending their gfs, the claustrophobic intimacy of friendship where you might just take a bite out of each other, your SF/F Elena Ferrante, your swordswomen in love.
Oh hell yes #mswl
I’m officially open to queries again! 🎉 I am especially eager to find MG, Adult thrillers, + upmarket Adult SFF. However, you can find my full wishlist (and submission guidelines) on the Triada website, MSWL website, or #mswl hashtag. I look forward to hearing from you! 📚
Lindsay Landgraf Hess @LindsayLHess@laurenspieller What are you hoping to see in your slush inbox in the coming months, anything in particular?
My #mswl is pretty extensive, but I really want more MG, adult thrillers, and crossover/adult SFF
#mswl for spring 2019! 🌸
*Contemp Fantasy in MG, YA, Adult
*Character driven SF in MG & Adult
*Female MC thrillers & suspense
*Jewish and LatinX folklore
*YA Contemp with a BIG hook
#MSWL Lightning Round:
--MG with a unique hook and a focus on friendship
--f/f YA that explores the lines between friendship and romance
--Adult psychological thriller that *isn't* about a woman who might be crazy/imagining the whole thing
--Adult SFF that makes me cry
Rena *nobody sees the bones* Rossner @renarossnerI would really really love to find an adult upmarket, literary novel to work on. Something that will make me cry. Bonus points for magical realism. #MSWL
Me too. 😈 #mswl
Sarah Guan @Sarah_Guan#MSWL: anti-colonialist adult #SFF that’s not just about throwing off the hegemon’s rule, but also the complexities of economic independence, recovering lost cultural heritage, & constituting a government that doesn’t replicate oppressive structures put in place by the colonizer.
I would love to see this. #mswl
This is the most obvious #MSWL ever, but...
I want books like To All The Boys I've Loved Before, in YA and Adult. This means:
--family B plots
Let's do this!
Lauren [closed to queries in August] @laurenspiellerthat might not seem like a ton, but when you consider how many genres I represent across multiple age categories, it is a LOT
When I open to queries again in September, I hope to continue receiving YA Fantasy (because I love it) but I also hope I see more
