Historical

I love “near” historical fiction (for lack of a better term). Books set in the 70’s, 80’s & 90’s. #MSWL

Time for more #MSWL! In terms of categories, I am really hungry for MG. Stand-alone or series, classic-feeling or not, contemporary or historical, mystery, fantasy, sci-fi, adventure - I’d like to see more MG!

I'd really love to see a historical fiction MG that provides an #ownvoices perspective on the past. Please please please. #MSWL

I want more YA nonfiction! #mswl A deep dive into a really interesting part of history that has modern resonance; an investigation into a recent news event; a cool historical anthology; a topical memoir; books by real inspiring teens; how-to books & guide books. Send to me!

Just a reminder: I'm a huge fan of historical fantasy, especially if you've got a setting I haven't seen before. #MSWL

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

I would LOVE (I mean REALLY love) a feminist historical Purim re-telling. Extra points if you ship Esther & Vashti. #MSWL

I have been rereading CODE NAME VERITY for the first time since my initial flurry of passion for it, and I still have the same reaction: good Jesus Christ what a VOICE.

My #mswl always includes historical fiction, but I want to have *this* reaction to it. I want a voice that's vibrant and ALIVE, that feels immediately like a person I could know, that makes the quiet parts feel intimate and the stakes feel personal.

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

As a Korean-American, I'm on the hunt for anything that showcases my culture and heritage. I want to boost our stories across genres: contemporary, historical, SF/F...again, own-voices only. #mswl
