Especially interested in HistFic that takes place during the second half of the 20th C, in a non-Western setting, though I’m open to all places and periods…#MSWL 2/3

Hi all! I’m open to queries after a break and would love to find gripping, immersive historical fiction that centers the experience of a marginalized person… #MSWL 1/3

Putting this obscure #MSWL want out into the universe, but if any querying writers are working on a Hist Fic about Florence Cook and the Crookes investigation, I would love to see it.

I’d love to see a fun YA historical fantasy, especially if it’s queer and/or features POC! #MSWL

I’d love to have a YA set in Ancient Egypt. It can be historical, or a YA fantasy with magic, and gods and all the details. This is something I’ve always wanted to read! Send me some! #MSWL

I’d love to see some YA historical fantasy. I love seeing twists to history and the fantastical elements. #MSWL

I love myths, legends and fairytales. I’d love to see some retellings or adaptations. They can be contemporary, historical, fantasy, etc. #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

"Would love an East/West Germany or Berlin Wall historical with a romantic hook. Something sweeping and heartbreaking." @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Yep, I’m still looking for a #historical #YA take on Outlander (or any historical time travel premise). #MSWL
