Specific #ownvoices #MSWL I’d love to see: a YA historical retelling of SOME LIKE IT HOT about a teen trans girl discovering her identity when she joins an all-girls musical group to escape vengeful mobsters

#MSWL Fantasy and historical fiction about female characters engaging in traditionally-feminine pastimes. Give me seamstresses breaking curses, wetnurses playing politics, noblewomen arranging marriages for their kids

EVERGREEN #MSWL: Historical fiction where a secret from the past influences the story's present (if it's a bit creepy or twisty, even better!)

#mswl I’m also looking for Romance. The higher the heat level the better. I love historical romance, and one of my favorite tropes is enemies to lovers.

Alex Arnold @alexyarnold · 13 Sep 2018

YA historical fiction set in the 1950s-70s, where the story offers insight/parallels to contemporary culture #MSWL

Julie Gwinn @JulieGwinn · 13 Sep 2018

#MSWL I'm looking for something I've never seen before primarily adult or YA in fantasy, romance, historical, suspense, mystery #ownvoices

Ali Herring @HerringAli · 13 Sep 2018

I’d love to see someone take a modern/contemporary well-loved/well-known story and flip it on its head to a historical. A flipped retelling if you will. Bonus points for some magical realism. #MSWL

Catherine Laudone @CatherineLaud · 12 Sep 2018

It’s #MSWL day! Agents—I’m desperate to see more #MG in my inbox! Looking for voice-driven contemporary and magical realism like #Rooftoppers and historical like #TheWarThatSavedMyLife and #BostonJane Also open to a fun fantasy—looking for the next #EllaEnchanted!

Taylor Haggerty @tayhaggerty · 12 Sep 2018

Top of my #MSWL: women's fiction and romance by/about underrepresented voices. Contemporary. Historical. Contemporary or historical with a magical element. Grounded SF. Romcoms. Happy books. Also, maybe a big, sweeping gothic romance?

I absolutely loved the German film THE MARRIAGE OF MARIA BRAUN and would love to see some historical fiction in Germany post war world II. It is because of that movie that I better understood my own Opa. #MSWL
