Stacey Donovan @DonovanesqueI'm feeling a strong urge this afternoon to write stories about how It's Not Too Late. About people who can still be that person they wanted to be, live that life they wanted to live, know that love they wanted to know, even after so much time. ❤️ (also #MSWL)
Attention MG & YA authors: I'm eager to find a contemporary MS to add to my list. I'm especially looking for an issues book that doesn't feel like it is or something unique. Send query & 1st 5 pages to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #MSWL #diversity #ownvoices
If I missed your #DVpit pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. Adult: SFF, thriller, cont. romance, & mystery. YA: thriller, SFF, horror, mystery, cont., & historical. MG: SFF, adventure, mystery, cont., & horror. #diversity #MSWL querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.) com
I'm dying for more MG fiction in my box!!! Especially contemporary, but any MG would be wonderful! I'd love something unique that gives me all the feels!!! Send query & 1st 5 pages to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency(dot) com. #MSWL #diversity #ownvoices
KA Whitfield @Whit_Writes@katenashagent @LinaLanglee #AskAgent Do you have a MSWL?
Wishlists are tricky because they are always changing BUT, I would definitely like to sign some ‘uplit’, a good crime procedural series and a bunch of YA. And I would love to see more diversity in all the aforementioned categories! #AskAgent

Both @AmberCaraveo and I would absolutely LOVE to see entries from diverse and under-represented voices telling stories from fresh perspectives. Send us your middle grade story!

Thao Le @ThaoLe8SAMMME~ But I'd love to see multicultural witches. Brujas, hoodoos, asian witches running apothecaries! #mswl twitter.com/TiffanyDiahann…
I'm a big proponent of diversity (begins to list family heritage) so yes to all of this. #mswl
#MSWL UK Authors. Looking for Adult fiction: literary novel or short story collection. Mainly interested in writers from diverse & marginalised groups.
Disclosure: I'm a young agent new to the field. I have a strong mentor with years of experience so you'll be very supported 😊
Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPixIf you have received rejections lately, you absolutely should keep querying. But if this thread made you think "Well there was that one scene..." or "well I did decide to trim that to be like Writer McFamousDude..." GO FIX IT FIRST. Send me something mindblowing. You CAN do this.
And if you read to the end (and don't hate me now), #MSWL Dynamic adult sci fi & fantasy that breaks the mold, vivid settings, powerful stakes, YA #SFF, diversity across race, gender/sexuality, neurodivergence, and mythologies I've never seen before.
Polished per above, please.
Ooh, #mswl day! Right now I’m craving great SF/horror mashups, general dark horror, PI mysteries, gothic suspense, and dark thrillers - YA & adult! Diverse voices always a plus!
I am so proud to represent MG and YA based on diverse mythologies and cultures like @thebookGLUTTON’s CHARLIE HERNANDEZ AND THE LEAGUE OF SHADOWS, and @KSekouM’s TRISTAN STRONG PUNCHES A HOLE IN THE SKY, but I want more! #MSWL in MG, YA, and Adult.
Is it still #MSWL day?
Someone send me an adult SFF novel centering a messy, diverse found family who have to overthrow the empire, or uncover a plot, or fight off invaders—but at the end of the day, you know they’re doing it to save each other as much as to “save the world.”
In summary, my #MSWL incl. #diverse & #ownvoices works:
- #SFF, space opera, cyberpunk & UF
- #WomensFic feat. WOC esp. Latina MC
- #Horror, #suspensethriller w/ unique take on classic or gothic horror
-All #Romance esp. #LGBTQIA
Seeking: Adult: suspense/thrillers, fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary romance, rom-com, & mysteries. YA: suspense/ thrillers, sci-fi, fantasy, horror, mysteries, historical, & contemporary. MG: Sci-fi, fantasy, contemporary, adventure, mysteries, horror, & humor. #diversity #MSWL
Cassandra Farrin @CassaCassaCassaI will be posting a thread of #MSWL items for @amberjackpub later today. -Agents- may direct subs to firstname.lastname@example.org (include SUBMISSIONS in subject line). Gentle reminder to writers that this is not a pitching contest.
Here's our official #MSWL! I'm particularly into diverse YA/Adult books, being a biracial/Black woman in an interracial relationship, so send lots our way! I'll post a few of my own personal wish list items later tonight!
