"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.

"Family secrets & single events that chance the course of many lives i.e. COMMONWEALTH, ONE DAY, VERSIONS OF US, ATONEMENT." @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

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…

"Plot-driven story of marriage, complicated family drama, or mother/daughter relationships i.e. THIS IS HOW IT ALWAYS IS, EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU, MATING FOR LIFE, MODERN LOVERS, THE NEST, SHE REGRETS NOTHING, THE PEOPLE WE HATE AT THE WEDDING" @carlywatters #MSWL

#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

BBC drama #MrsWilson was just brilliant on all levels. If you are writing a novel with family drama anything like this, send it in! #MSWL #amwriting katenashlit.co.uk

This is a #MSWL I like to put out there every now and then. I want an upmarket women’s fiction where a family member is on trial for murder and the protagonist(s) don’t know whether he did it or not. I want to see the meat of the emotions in that unthinkable situation.
