It's only been forever and a day but I finally updated my #MSWL profile! Now including select genres of narrative non-fiction — and basically send me all your queer fiction or creepy, lyrical middle grade books! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/moe-…
Historical is hard in YA and Adult but ohhhh, I love it so. Tell me a great story of under-studied women, events, and areas of history. Give me spies and queens, codebreakers and slice of life, THE ALICE NETWORK and OUTRUN THE MOON. #mswl
I’m focusing a lot in Adult as well—women’s fiction, fantasy, and historical. With WF I want to see upmarket book club fiction (ELEANOR OLIPHANT) and romcoms (MEET CUTE). I want lyrical, historically-inspired fantasy (EMPIRE OF SAND, Juliet Marillier, anything witches). #mswl
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.
I'm also looking for accessible historical fiction with a great hook. I'm a big rom-com fan (in teen + adult), but my bar is very high thanks to my brilliant authors, who are pubbing some of the best in the game (if I can just brag on them a bit!).
Trisha de Guzman @trishadegMind blown. Can someone please write a historical YA about a girl at the height of society who has, like, the BEST jewelry collection ever but is actually secretly hoarding jewelry so she can make her escape from the patriarchy?? #MSWL twitter.com/o_waite/status…
OMG me this so I can love it forever #MSWL
Olivia Waite @O_WaiteJust an evening reminder that jewelry was a traditional gift demanded by women not because we’re frivolous magpies but because we weren’t permitted to have bank accounts in many times and places and needed shit we could sell for cash in a pinch.

You guys I am at the 90% mark of The Huntress and next I'm reading We Rule the Night to feed my Night Witches obsession. But what I'd really love to find #MSWL is adult and YA ft other female pilots - hello Bessie Coleman - whether historical or fantasy
Léonicka @leonickaThis exhibit was breathtaking and I wanna see more stories about this. #mswl #yeehawagenda twitter.com/NewYorker/stat…
