I am not dipping into #Pitmad today, but I am aggressively seeking Adult projects, particularly horror and domestic suspense thrillers (WHEN NO ONE IS WATCHING, THE KILL CLUB; not CIA/FBI thrillers), & romance. I am hyper focused on seeking queer BIPOC writers & characters #mswl
#mswl update in view of #pitmad coming up
-anything scifi (esp space) unless it is VR/gaming
-hist fic (sry)
-anything LGBTQ esp! BIPOC stories and memoirs
-poli sci literally anything
-epic fantasy (I have a lot atm... may change later)
Hey, all, I’ll be closing to queries on 12/1 through the end of the year, so send your wonderful words my way! I’m specifically looking for queer & BIPOC creators & stories in Adult romance, women’s fic, fantasy. I’d love a sweet, sexy, diverse holiday rom right now. ✨ #MSWL
Leah Pierre @leahbeneYes to all this but BIPOC too, pls!
I was just talking about this!! More BIPOC lesbian heist submissions!!! Pllllllleeeeeeeaaaaaassssseeee!! #mswl
Nita Tyndall @NitaTyndallI’m watching National Treasure and I want more heist/treasure hunting books, especially YA (and queer.) It’s a genre we should revive.
(This is not a call for recommendations please do not respond with “have you read x”)
Yes to all this but BIPOC too, pls!
Brenna “ACAB” English✨Loeb @benglishhhHello sweet writers! I will be closing to queries at the end of the month, so if you were planning on submitting to me (via query manager, I delete things that come into my inbox unrequested) this is your metaphorical five minute warning!
I'll be updating this thread over the next few days with #mswl thoughts and ideas as they occur to me, and I'll start with saying that if you have a western, especially a historical one featuring queer and/or BIPOC characters, please hit me up!
How about a #middlegrade or #YAlit that kind of comps to A Night at the Museum, only set in the Louvre or the Guggenheim or something? Even better if it's written by/about #BIPOC! #mswl #WritingCommunity #kidlit #scbwi
Putting it out into the universe that I’d love more historical romances centering on Black, Indigenous & POC written by BIPOC in my query inbox. Please & thank you 🙏 (bonus points if one of your character inspos is Dev Patel. Kidding... kind of.) #MSWL
I have not looked at my queries all week because sending a rejection this week would just be too mean. So, I don't know what's in there. I'm REALLY hoping for lots of queer stories & tons of submissions from #BIPOC & #Latinx authors. #yalit #romcom #middlegrade #MSWL 🤞🏽
Mara Delgadead will haunt you 🧟♀️ @little_mswriterI am a voracious fantasy reader. I’m looking for BIPOC fantasies in both, YA and crossover. Give me intrigue, emotional nuance and astounding character arcs. I have always made my home in this genre. Send me some!
And I’m still looking for that Latinx fantasy! #MSWL
Yes to this still. Also, give me your anti-colonialist and anti-imperialist angle in these #MSWL
Megan Gerhardt @profgerhardtHow do you find the right literary agent? What's a query? And what could Kenny Rogers have to do with #Gentelligence? Read onto find out the answers...
#WritingCommunity #HiveMind #writers #authors
Thank you Megan. Here is a great article for anyone just starting to think of getting an agent. Also a reminder I need to update my #MSWL — still seeking women & BIPOC authors in nonfiction. #WritingCommunity
When I open for queries on 11/1 I’d love to see some super sapphic YA romcoms in my inbox. Any of the romcom tropes (yes, with a HEA!) and make it gay and make me laugh. Even better if written by a #BIPOC author! #YAlit #WritingCommunity #amquerying #amwriting #agent #mswl
I want a YA or Adult Rom-Com that is so cute, funny, and steamy. If yours includes an interracial relationship, I'll be your best friend! And when it comes to love stories, I am especially open to LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC. #MSWL
