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 would love this so much, especially from an author who has spent time in Grand Central and understands its nuances. Ever lost a key on the train? The lost and found has so many keys! Maybe he’s the key master to each gateway!

We’ve seen this before in SFF, but I want MORE…Gattaca blew my tiny mind when I first saw it in school. I'd love to feel that way again.

Speaking of allegory, I am all about rich, layered symbolism at every turn - names, characters, plot, setting, tiny, seemingly insignificant details that are actually hugely symbolic of glorious truth. If you have a #YA #CF #fantasy like this, I'd love to see it. #MSWL

What's been lacking in my subs is a nice allegorical fantasy, something subtle not hit you over the head with a brick KWIM? #MSWL

Send me your YA/MG fantasies featuring mythical beasts. @nickipaupreto’s Crown of Feathers and @ktzhaoauthor’s The Dragon Warrior have left me wanting more! #mswl

I desperately want contemporary or fantasy romance novels with trans main characters where there is no bullshit transphobic reaction to the MCs transness from anyone anywhere ever. #MSWL

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?

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…

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
