- BIPOC rom-coms, friend-coms, and coming-of-age stories not exclusively centered around POC trauma
- Sweeping historical fiction / magical realism, especially stories about non-white history
- Speculative thrillers ala The Thousandth Floor & We Were Liars
emmy, purveyor of spines @emmy_of_spinesAlright, cats and kittens. We are more than halfway through this year, and maybe 11 PM on a Friday is not the most algorithm-friendly time to drop a new #MSWL for #AmQuerying authors, but I've been working hard on it tonight, so here it is! 🧵
As always: I always prioritize queries from LGBTQ2S+, disabled, chronically ill, and/or BIPOC authors. That applies to ALL my asks below, and I am grateful for all of you who choose to query me.
Nidhi Pugalia @makep1enotw4rMy #A #MSWL page is live! Agents, send me your BIPOC myth-retellings--your dark, lyrical novels that dip into fantasy--your REBECCA-esque gothic fiction--your quirky, voicey nonfic. Make me hungry, teach me something, whisk me away: bit.ly/2Udh4Is📚 pic.twitter.com/g67GgPz5g2
Ummm ditto. I want these things. #mswl

Hannah VanVels 🪴🌙 @hannahvanvelsGood morning, #amquerying #amwriting community!
PitMad may be over. There were almost half a million pitches, which is an overwhelming turnout! Because of that, I know I 💯 missed some things.
Query me anyways!
I'm particularly eager to build up my MG and Adult lists, but I can't resist a good PB or YA.
I'm perennially on the lookout for BIPOC, LGBT, and Neurodiverse creators in all categories.
Check out my #MSWL: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/hann…
Only #YA and #MG. Whodunit mysteries like Truly Devious (riddles!). Closed door thrillers/mysteries. Witchy stories like Undead Girl Gang and The Craft, grounded in the real world. #mswl
Always looking for BIPOC writers!
If you have it and I miss it, please send anyway!
Morgan Al-Moor @MorganAlMoorOne thing about stories by BIPOC authors is that not only do they offer representation for the marginalized, but they also offer fresh takes on stories & tropes that might have been overdone, esp in SFF. Small thread👇🏾
Hey #AmQuerying writers, I’m closing to queries on June 1 for the summer, but will be open to #MSWL items (see below) through this link: QueryManager.com/AshleyBlake/MS…
✨Queer &/or BIPOC romance (rom com & contemp)
✨Mystery w/ WF (think FINLAY DONOVAN)
#MSWL #YA: I love RomComs and anything with a ghost-y or #supernatural quality. #LTBTQ+, #OwnVoices and #BIPOC authors are always welcome. I do still like issue-driven YA, but am looking for something super-edgy in this realm.
As a Black editor, one of my goals is to acquire diverse voices including LGTBQIA+, BIPOC, Latinx, neurodiverse, and other underrepresented identities. I’m very passionate about diversity and representation in publishing. #MSWL
Hey friends, I'm a little pitch contest-ed out (I'm sorry!!!) but I *would* love to see some adult queer and BIPOC horror in my QM. I'll be closing to queries at the end of May to go through my inbox, so please do send me yours if you feel I'd be a good fit! #mswl
Interested in working with me? Send query/synopsis/full ms to my attention via entangledpublishing.submittable.com/submit/. BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and all underrepresented voices are encouraged to query. #MSWL link in my bio 💛
