Gothic fiction with possibly a modern storyline, too (I love THE LITTLE STRANGER by Sarah Waters and THE GREATCOAT by Helen Dunmore). Give me some ghosts. #mswl

So jealous the girl with the green ribbon could take her brain off.

This post reminds me that I need one of you YA authors to write a creepy gothic retelling of the story of green ribbon girl. Maybe a graphic novel?!? #mswl

Adult gothic horror by a Black creator. That’s it. That’s the whole #MSWL.

I am ~so impressed~ with #DVpit today. If I ❤️ your pitch, you can sub to me through the link in my pinned tweet. If I miss yours, you can still sub to me! I'm all over the horror today: hauntings, gothic, anything you can comp to Ari Aster or Jordan Peele. #MSWL

Let's try that again! Writers! During this quagmire of a time, maybe you want to check out my #MSWL ? I'd love a story to sweep me off my feet, away from (gestures) all of this…

Hi, black Southern Gothic with spec elements needs to hit my inbox. Please and thank you!


Melanie Fried @Melanie_Fried · Mar 18

In anticipation of my trip to New Orleans, one thing on my #mswl is almost any kind of book about the American South. Southern Gothic, romance, non-fiction, horror etc. Especially written by/about people of color. (Also open to already published book recommendations!)

Vicki Lame @thedaysbetween · Feb 28

#MSWL Retellings, magical realism, Gothic settings, witches, vampires, genre bendy things, anything you would comp to one of my own books (Agented only)

In Adult Horror #MSWL I'm partial to:
- Historical and/or sub-genre horror
- Literary-esque voice
- Not a slasher movie plot
- MAIN CHARACTER DRIVEN, not monster/killer driven
- I love moody, atmospheric, and creepy af
- Creative/unique monsters (if applicable)
- Gothic a plus

For #YA send me all your charming rom-coms, your heartfelt exploration of sibling dynamics, thrillers that will keep me up at night turning the pages, and all the southern gothic you can handle. Oh & anything with hints of magic. I LOVE contemporary fantasy & light fantasy #MSWL

Diana M. Pho 📚 @writersyndrome · Feb 5

For #MSWL in horror

- Creepy Southern/Western Americana or non-Western world Gothic

- horror that interrogates sociopolitical fears

- anything you can see Bruce Campbell starring in

- no exploitative violence against femmes and POC pls

Ashley Hearn 🕷 Preorder FOREST OF SOULS (6/23)! @AshleyHearn · Jan 30

Replying to @AshleyHearn

Dark fantasy, gothic fantasy, horror-fantasy blends, and stories with subversive religious themes. Think SERPENT & DOVE, WICKED SAINTS, and THE YEAR OF THE WITCHING. #MSWL

Alexandra Sehulster @ASehulster · Jan 28

Since I'm not feeling poetic today, I'll just bluntly say I want a delicious, dramatic, feverish gothic love story. No powerless women trapped in attics please. Thanks! #MSWL
