You know who I would like to meet in my inbox? The modern-day equivalent of the Quimby family. Where do they live? What do they look like? What conflicts are they facing? That's for you mg writers out there to imagine! #MSWL
#MSWL I’m very interested in projects from active duty military, veterans, and their family members. I want to hear your unique story! My brother suffers PTSD from his tour in Afghanistan and I have a soft spot for this underrepresented group of brave men and women.
Overall, I want complex relationships, nuanced characters, & smartly plotted novels. A huge plus: a strong sense of place that adds complexity to the story - I don't want just another NYC book! #MSWL #Mystery #Thriller #FamilySaga #WomensFiction #WomenWriters #Speculative

Andrea Walker @_AndreaWalker_@erin_clyburn @Megan_Manzano @Literary_Tara What’s at the TOP of your MSWL? Anything you’re dying to see?! 😁
I'd absolutely love:
Complex/sweet sibling relationships
Slow burn/enemy to lovers romance
A cast of super close characters. Think Stranger Things.
Space travel or space operas.
I am also still looking for works of creative nonfiction that address issues not often talked about: from family dynamics to social justice, anything that explores those hard-to-define gray areas of our lives and that will really make me stop and think. #mswl
Horrendous Jake Kablooie @JakeMHSThis is an r/relationships post from the SA peanut gallery thread because the original was deleted. You will not regret reading this one although you might scream. 🐀🐀🐀🐀 pic.twitter.com/nIt12atnqI
I’m currently closed to queries but I firmly #MSWL this for when I open. Family controlled (or puppet-ed) by (haunted, cursed maybe) mice figurines who hide their very real presence from most but are very active in a super bad way with those they manipulate. #horror
#MSWL: Adult Fiction: family sagas, complex juicy historical (think The Crimson Petal & the White, Queen of the Night), female friendship stories, Millennial fiction (think Sally Rooney or Casey McQuiston)
i feel like maybe i’ve said this before, but i’d really like to read a middle grade in the vein of bob’s burgers—lighthearted & full of shenanigans, and ultimately about growing up in a close-knit working class family #mswl
