Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRothAlso I’m certainly not saying parents NEEEEEED to be alive to query me. But if you spent any time in my queries, you’d wonder if there were any other launching points besides major trauma. Kids can be interesting AND come from intact families. Is all I’m saying... #MSWL pic.twitter.com/AooESpIyH0
In fact, I’d just love to see stories from kids in a variety of family structures that WORK. The beauty of a family is that there is no defined shape to a loving support network. Show me! #MSWL
-Please send me anything that’ll make me laugh. I’d love to see a protagonist as dry and witty as Eleanor Oliphant or Flavia de Luce, or a dysfunctional family saga like Arrested Development.
-The Neverending Story by Michael Ende is my all-time favorite book.
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)
