Stephanie Stein @stephlysteinI turned 30 (!!!) last weekend, an occasion I'm seizing to share my #MSWL this year:
- sweeping YA romance
- ✨queer magic✨
- savvy, commercial MG fantasy
- joyful queer & POC stories
- & POC authors with something to say
- emotional contemporary MG
- cozy af graphic novels
Karen Greenberg @kgreenbergreadsAgent friends! I’m on the hunt this fall for author-illustrators with fresh stories to tell. Find me with your most exciting author-illustrated projects! Diverse voices always wanted. 👀
Same (*waves at artists*) #mswl
Kiki Nguyen @kiananguFor the love of God, I NEED YA thrillers, mysteries and Adult Domestic Suspense outside of the suburbs. I don’t GIVE A FUCK about this setting anymore. OVER IT!!
Whereas I love the suburbs (& small towns) so send to me. Maybe cause I grew up in the south in suburbs + country, but SO MUCH goes down in the suburbs and small towns.
Yes, I'm trash for stuff like Big Little Lies.
YA + Adult #mswl
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.
very much so same #mswl all the f/f/ all the time
Southern gothic has been claimed so much by white writers when some of my favorite southern gothic literature is by black authors so would love to see the submissions I get really reflect the diversity of the south and of vampires, haha. #mswl
Patrice Caldwell @whimsicallyoursBasically Vicki and I will take your southern gothics and vampires, thank you very much #mswl twitter.com/thedaysbetween…
My full #mswl and submission guidelines are on my website patricecaldwell.com/submission-gui… as well as the Morhaim literary site 🙌🏾 just please only query me if the book is ready, there’s no rush I’ll still be here ☺️
Vicki Lame @thedaysbetweenFor everyone asking, at this time I only accept agented submissions. But! There are a ton of agents out there looking for similar projects. #mswl
Basically Vicki and I will take your southern gothics and vampires, thank you very much #mswl
Patrice Caldwell @whimsicallyoursUnrelated-ish but I now want to reimagine THE SONG OF ACHILLES with Achilles being Black ❤️👏🏾 twitter.com/filmfatale_nyc…
Patrice Caldwell @whimsicallyoursIf you pitch your book as featuring powerful altos, imma read it twitter.com/ryality/status…
Probs setting myself up to get many queries with altos in it but listen make it a thriller where the alto takes down a soprano for a coveted spot and I’m in #mswl
Patrice Caldwell @whimsicallyoursSome of the first vampire myths and folktales actually come from non-white / western cultures so ☺️🧛🏾♀️ twitter.com/elleonwords/st…
Speaking of which this would make a super fascinating book like reading vampirism myths and folktales around the world and studying vampires x race relations so someone should write it and send to me cause I so see the potential #mswl. My list is gonna be so weird and I’m ready
Patrice Caldwell @whimsicallyours"Not only does he want folks to know, that rosé is not just for the white consumer, which brands predominantly market towards, but he wants to let it be known that sipping rosé is not exclusively a summertime activity."
THE CONTENT I LIVE FOR 🍷💕 #roséallday twitter.com/soulphoodie/st…
Okay I really want like a wine book written by a poc now. #mswl I’ve read like so many wine books. They’re always so damn white.
One of the best parts of @HighlightsFound was I got to spend the weekend with so many favs I rarely see like @Tiff_Liao and just gonna put this out in the universe but, to simplify a longer convo, we both Carmen Maria Machado but YA. #mswl
