I’d love to get in more Women’s/General fiction! Here’s my current #MSWL: Multicultural stories; Women in STEM; High-concept historical; Millennial characters/themes; or Queer fiction. Can be a combination of any of the above.
Taylor Haggerty @tayhaggertyHello, #MSWL! I'm looking to sign up some exciting new projects. Here are a few things I'd love to see: If you have a book that feels like vacation (deceptively easy -- super smart, but doesn't feel like work), please send it my way!
I'd love to find high concept women's fiction and general commercial fiction, as well as creative contemporary fantasy - stories grounded in our world but w/a magical twist (for teens or adults).
In YA, I’d love to see more high concept coming of age stories: self-contained conflicts where teens learn about themselves against the odds: Magical realism; contemporary fairies; realistic YA mysteries or thrillers with a sense of place #mswl
I do a lot of fantasy, but I also do a ton of contemporary, and I'd love to see more big-hook stories set in our world. If you want a great example of hooky, high-concept contemporary YA I love that we rep here @FolioJr: DUMPLIN' and TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE. #MSWL
😃I'm building my list😀
Send me your:
~ Fantasy w/romance (YA & Adult)
~ Contemp Romance (YA & Adult)
~ High-concept MG (series potential a bonus)
~ YA contemp fantasy / paranormal / urban fantasy
~ Any genre w/ loads of white space, no overwriting
Mara Delgado 🇵🇷 @little_mswriterSince I’m actively acquiring, here’s a bit of my mswl. A couple of things:
1. Diverse and Own Voices stories are always welcome in my inbox
2. Please don’t pitch me on twitter.
3. And of note, I’m only accepting agented submissions at this time!
I’m looking for historical romance that is warm and tropey, high concept and engaging. I also like high concept historical romance that goes dark and explores characters a la Kerrigan Byrne. Where are the diverse and #ownvoices historicals? #MSWL
Secondly, YA: I love genre stuff, fantasy, sci-fi, even the right historical. I'd love to see some really high-concept stand alone, too. And in all things, diverse voices, diverse stories, under-represented points of view, ALWAYS. #MSWL
Katherine Locke @BibliogatoI am not an agent or an editor, so I'm just throwing it out there for writers who do humor better than me:
I would kill for a YA book that captured the tone and feeling of the late great tv show Dead Like me.
selfishly expanding this into a #mswl for adult SFF that hits that Dead Like Me sweet spot of charming sardonic & reserved w/a deep undercurrent of heartbreak & stunning empathy that will break into the main storyline without warning. high concept but make it lump in your throat
Right, (like a lot of other people) I've finished reading The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle (🤯) and I'm adding high-concept novels to my submissions wishlist!

4/ #MSWL: I would love to find more MG fantasy that combines commercial, high concept plotting with gorgeous prose. Books packed with action, adventure, heart, & friendship that tow the line between literary and commercial. Wildly original worldbuilding, always!
Peter Knapp @petejknappwhoops, thread broken! # 10: Big middle grade series, such as ARU SHAH AND THE END OF TIME, THE CANDYMAKERS, MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY, etc! #mswl
and I also will always love my big, high concept MG series! #MSWL
