Family

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · 4 Apr 2019

I want books that are a true pleasure to read – that are a hymn to the power of friendship, family and love; that look at the world with eyes wide-open, but are still big-hearted and optimistic. #MSWL

I’d love to learn more about the Latinx experience and hope to see more literary or commercial fiction submissions of heartfelt contemporary novels for adults featuring Latinx characters, Latinx family stories or thrillers, adventures, fantasy, and magical realism #mswl

“Upmarket Fiction: like LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE, COMMONWEALTH and THE LAST ROMANTICS. I love family drama.” @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Family sagas infused with magic, like @WriterLouisa's A Secret History of Witches or @EdenRoyce's "Every Good-Bye Ain't Gone" #mswl

"Literary fiction that takes you into small worlds and communities where I'm an outsider. A glimpse inside a complex family, or a workplace." @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

#MSWL I really want fun queer romances. All across the LGBTQ+ spectrum, with smart, fully developed characters, sharp dialogue/witty banter, family/friend/career drama, and beautiful, totally explored settings.

Within the immigrant experience, there's so much I'd like to see reflected in all subgenres. (1/2) #MSWL

The desire to both assimilate & hold tightly to your culture, the very real fear, food-is-love, the closeness of family. Of course, there isn't only one way this plays out, & I want to read them all! #MG #YA #MSWL (2/2)

I love laughter, warmth, introverts, character-driven narratives, perseverance, being transported to different places and times, gorgeous and grounded world-building, heart, friendship, and family.

Here’s what I’m seeking this year! #mswl scribblesandwanderlust.com/2019/01/01/msw…

#mswl Ya where protagonist works in family business with themes of identity, family feuds, or sibling rivalry

On the adult side, I would love, love, love to find some multi-generational family stories. Think Fluornoy’s The Turner House, Sullivan’s Maine, Urrea’s The House of Broken Angels, Gyasi’s Homegoing, etc. #MSWL

Day 21 of #25DaysofMSWL: in light of today's personal family news, I want books that deal with mother-daughter relationships. Good ones, bad ones. #MSWL
