I found an exit out of Grand Central that I had never used before, & it got me two blocks closer to my destination than I expected. In this cold, that counts as a New York Win (tm).

Also, surely there is a fantasy novel featuring Grand Central as a wild nexus of portals to magical worlds? If not, I would love for an author of color to write that & send it to me. #MSWL

#MSWL I am always looking for less-focused-on characters in adult fantasy. Like, what secrets does the janitor discover in a magical kingdom? What kind of underground ops could this unassuming mastermind run? How about the royal barber? Maintenance? Grocer? Hairdresser?

I’m not able to check in all of the wonderful #SFFPit entries today but if your work meets anything in my #MSWL (specifically space opera, cyberpunk, biopunk, urban fantasy) feel free to query me at QueryMe.Online/Saritza

Hey writer friends!

I've been closed to submissions since the summer and... I'll be opening up again on March 1st!

Literary fiction! Young Adult books! SFF! Cookbooks! Quirky non-fiction and moving memoir! Here's what I'm looking for in 2019. #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/2019/01/30/man…

Margaret Bail @MKDB · Jan 30

Moe Ferrara @inthesestones · Jan 29

It's true! I'm open to queries so hit me with your best shot: querymanager.com/query/mferrara

Not only that—but I'm now open to picture books! My list is definitely children's focused in PB, MG, and YA -- but I'm selectively looking at Adult SFF and romance! #MSWL

Lauren’s the Worst (preorder now💁🏻‍♀️) @laurenspieller · Jan 29

#MSWL Lightning Round:

--MG with a unique hook and a focus on friendship

--f/f YA that explores the lines between friendship and romance

--Adult psychological thriller that *isn't* about a woman who might be crazy/imagining the whole thing

--Adult SFF that makes me cry

Hardcore #mswl, with a little more fantasy type vibes...and maybe some clans...

Marlene Stringer @MarleneStringer · Jan 28

Looking for crime/thrillers and contemporary fantasy. Suspense that sneaks up on you. Stories w/ a great twist. #MSWL

Naomi Davis The Caffeinated @NaomisLitPix · Jan 27

#MSWL Please please please adult epic fantasy that delves into class politics or social issues in societies I've never seen before, with articulate female/nb/trans MAIN characters & explosive stakes. Lots of magic, lots of emotion, romance welcome!

Saritza🇵🇷Hernandez @epubagent · Jan 24

Finally updated my profile on the official #MSWL website. You can see the genres I'm acquiring including a few new ones including horror, suspense/thrillers, science fiction/fantasy, and I'm expanding into YA, MG and some nonfiction. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sari…

Hillary Jacobson @hillaryjacobson · Jan 23

I have so much fantasy on my list that I'm being extremely picky about adding more, but if your world-building is as incredible as R.F. Kuang’s in THE POPPY WAR, then I want to see it! #mswl

Kat Enright @katenright · Jan 23

But I am also open to contemporary and urban fantasy as well! If you’ve got something like Kat Howard’s AN UNKINDNESS OF MAGICIANS, I’d love to see it in my inbox. #mswl

Kat Enright @katenright · Jan 23

In adult SFF, I am dying for a good fantasy with a richly developed world and strong characters. Bonus points if it’s a culture we haven’t seen as much of! #MSWL

Kat Enright @katenright · Jan 23

I am always looking for YA fantasy and science fiction. I’d love something fresh and new from traditionally underrepresented voices! #MSWL
