“Historical Fiction like WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING and THE GREAT ALONE. I like setting that feels like a character.” @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

So.. I've been in #Poland for the last few weeks. Needless to say, I'm updating my #mswl. Please send me all of your royal Polish family stories (YA history, YA fantasy), stories based on Polish mythology (YA) and historical women's fiction. Who's writing about queen #jadwiga?

I've been wanting this for so long but: someone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE send me a historical romance that takes place in Mexico/California in the 1800s. Mexican or Mexican-American author please! There's so much to explore and I want it all plus a love story! #MSWL

#MSWL can we have a historical fiction based on the woman who posed for the Rosie the Riveter poster? She died in 2018 and damn it, I wanna know more. pinterest.com/pin/8394991867…

I remember reading Let the Great World Spin two years ago and being amazed by it. I love fiction that follows a cast of characters through their respective stories like that. Or the way The Immortalists does it. #MSWL Bonus points for something "near-historical" like that.

I love finding new authors and so here's my updated #MSWL! Contemporary women’s; rom-coms; high concept crime & thriller; horror; historical fiction; feminist fiction & non-fiction; compelling memoirs; popular science. thebentagency.com/sarah-hornsley

Authors! I've been closed to queries for 3 months due to ill health in my family. I am re-opening today, but being somewhat specific on what I'm seeking. Please read this thread or my #MSWL manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara… (The tulip is just for fun.) ....

After going through the fantastic #DVpit pitches this week, there's one particular #MSWL that I didn't see but am dying to find. I'm a bit obsessed with Wuxia—Chinese historical tv shows—right now, especially Legend of Fuyao. I would lovelovelove to find a YA fantasy like that.

And I'm still anxiously awaiting a YA inspired by Onna-Bugeisha, the women samurai of feudal Japan ⚔️☠️🇯🇵 #MSWL #YA #Historical

I love historical fiction, but I am picky. Because I want to see a historical voice. I love Ruta Sepetys for this reason. Give me histories I have never seen, give me view points never known. Immerse me in the setting, and culture. #MSWL #YA #MG

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Apr 23

In light of my query 0, I am going to do a #MSWL tomorrow. For now, here is a snapshot:
-Fluffy YA rom-com.
-Well-written psychological friendship book (YA)
- Literary-esque but cinematic fantasy YA and MG
- Historical Fiction like @RutaSepetys
- Quirky, Fun, Voicey MG
