or a female-led gothic thriller set in rural Yorkshire. or a dark academia story, rife with ghosts and hauntings and murder, set in Scotland against the lashes and winds of the North Sea

I'm trying to put my #mswl together for y'all but every time I write something I want to read I get way too specific about it

like yes please I would like a queer retelling of the Morrígan myth set during the Irish War of Independence with speculative magic vibes

One of the side benefits of going to a state school is that you’ll probably never be tempted to write a whole insufferable novel about going there. It’s a real drawback of attending an Ivy.

Hi send me your campus novels set at mid-tier or otherwise decidedly non-elite institutions, thanks! Would also consider nonfiction taking a critical perspective on the value vs. real cost of prestige academia, for students and for society #MSWL

I have strong feelings about people who blithely sort coming of age novels about young people into YA or adult based on their narrow view of what constitutes "literary" writing, but that's a long-winded thread for another day. TL;DR: adults can have "coming of age" stories, too

Anyway if you're writing a coming of age (coming of self!) story about young protagonists or older protagonists, for young readers or older readers, that challenges traditional ideas of what "coming of age" means, who gets to do it, how, and when...send it to me #MSWL #AmAgenting

more (positive) neurodivergent rep of personality disorders, pls. I say this all the time, but I've had enough of people with BPD and bipolar disorder being portrayed as unstable, unreliable, or nefariously manipulative. give me joy, give me therapy, give me growth. #mswl

just for ref there are many people in UK publishing who are still intricately entwined with the """gender critical""" movement (a proven hate campaign against trans individuals). my DMs are open if you'd like to know more. I will always do my utmost to protect

anyways, in response to the recent transphobic hullabaloo and the incorrect accusation flung at YA twitter: is now a good time to say that @JJBker is looking for some SFF YA and I personally (his first reader) would love to see some trans rep in the inbox? 😎 #mswl
