Want to let #amquerying folks know that my current #mswl is exclusively (hyperbole!) sapphic, dark, comedic horror feat. BIPOC casts!
I’m a fan of Scream, Fear Street 1994, Urban Legend (2001), The Descent
I’m that goofy bitch from the block w/as big mouth!!!
So, for any agents listening 👀 I would love to see more of the following adult fiction submissions in my inbox! #mswl
💫rom-coms where the MCs meet in Chapter 1
💫locked-room thrillers and mysteries
💫queer & BIPOC characters
The Fantasy I am still looking for is:
- fantasy written by and starring BIPOC
- literary poetic prose (especially in MG—think Kelly Barnhill)
- folkloric quality/grounded in history (Alice Hoffman; Rena Rossner; my wonderful client Mary McMyne)
Kristin Ostby @kristinostbyHey, writers! I’m once again caught up on queries and eager to find my next client! Here's what I'd love to find... 🧵 #MSWL
To begin with, I’m prioritizing BIPOC creators and, more broadly, writers from marginalized or underrepresented backgrounds, with an eye out for disabled writers. #MSWL
Here's a sweet #MSWL tweet from @AgentJessicaA!
"I want more joyful books—book club fiction, women’s fiction, romance, memoir—just books that are filled with positivity and hope. Uplifting, happy stories with BIPOC and LGBTQ+ characters are especially wanted."
Sabina Nordqvist @sabinapostsI'm just a girl, standing in front of publishing, asking them to publish stories about disabled characters... by authors who have those disabilities. 🙏
Yes!! I’m opening to queries on July 1, and I’d love to receive manuscripts with disabled characters! Also #BIPOC & #LGBTQ+. Would especially love indigenous characters/stories. Check out my #MSWL while you wait! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/cath…
#mswl BIPOC mythology! I don't know half as much as I should and I want stories that show me your glorious culture, your timeless stories, and your characters in all their facets. Bonus if it's gay (although strikes me all mythology should be gay!!)
Lauren WE DESERVE BODILY AUTONOMY, FFS Spieller @laurenspiellerGoing to keep tweeting this until I see it!! I really want more YA and Adult Suspense & RomCom submissions from BIPOC writers! #mswl
Please this is also my #mswl Lauren just said it first :)
Can't do #pitdark today but I *WANT* you to query me with:
--dark academia in YA/Adult
--grounded, scary YA Fantasy
--thrillers/suspense in YA/Adult
I am especially keen to find these written by BIPOC! We need more of those voices on shelves! #mswl
