Adult

Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburn · Jan 2

-Literary fiction (adult): I haven't stopped thinking about HISTORY OF WOLVES since I read it, so, lit fic about complex family relationships, growing up/aging, mental health, darker topics. Also, since it's election year & my anxiety will be running high, hopeful topics.

Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburn · Jan 2

-Character-driven sci-fi, always (YA/adult), & sci-fi grounded in the earth/plant life/climate change issues (like ANNIHILATION, WILDER GIRLS)

Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburn · Jan 2

-Horror (YA/adult): Psychological horror, body horror, hauntings, & other weird/new/different horror. (Also, I am NOT looking for zombies/werewolves/vampires/other creatures at this time.)

Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburn · Jan 2

-Low fantasy/portal fantasies (YA/adult): Something transportive but based in our world, like THE HAZEL WOOD.

-Middle grade: All. Of. It. Especially mysteries: Always looking for GREENGLASS HOUSE or WESTING GAME vibes.

I'm about to reopen to queries, but before I do, a little #MSWL thread of what I'm hoping to see in my inbox in the coming months:

#writingcommunity #amquerying

-Domestic thrillers (adult): I love them, & I never get these! Please send me your domestic/psychological thrillers; I vastly prefer them over any other kind & would love to find one with an amazing hook. One of my recent favorites was JP Delaney's THE GIRL BEFORE.

I’m very excited to be reopening to submissions today! Send me quirky, magical middle-grade or YA novels to fall in love with. Send me adult fiction that I can’t put down. But more than anything, send me books that are filled with hope. Writers from all backgrounds welcome! #MSWL

Hi, is it too soon to ask for more adult projects in my queries?

I’d love a book set in 1920s and more dark academia books 🥰🤗 #mswl #historicalfiction #darkacademia

“High stakes heists, with interesting complicated criminals and the heat of the chase – thrill me! Something like the adult version of DEATH PREFERS BLONDES.” @maureen_moretti #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
