• Horror and supernatural fiction that radically represents and explores queer, female, and BIPOC rage
• Books that slide adeptly between humor and poignancy—if a book can make me laugh on one page and cry on the next, it wins my whole heart!
this means love stories ♥️, horror 👻, contemporary, scifi 🤖, speculative, & more!!
RRP is known for mythology & magic, & while those remain the pillars this imprint is built on, id love to see stories that explore culture & identity in new & unexpected ways (3/6)
Andrew Nurnberg Associates @nurnberg_agencyCalling all #fiction writers, we will be making weekly call-outs on behalf of agents @JennySavill1 and @ce_seymour. We're looking particularly for writers from underrepresented backgrounds but are open to all, as always, and can't wait to hear from you!
In our first call-out, @JennySavill1 would like to see literary ghost stories and speculative fiction, perhaps with a touch of creeping horror. Please submit as per our guidelines: andrewnurnberg.com/submissions/ #MSWL #Fiction #WritingCommunity
Going to do a weekly reminder that I want all kinds of queer BIPOC centered HORROR NOVELS PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE SAVE ME FROM MY HORROR-LESS AGENT LIFE ☺️ Bonuses if it takes place in non-traditional setting (like houses, asylums, small towns, etc) #mswl
A few specific #mswl bits I'm on the hunt for at the moment: character-driven sci-fi (THE LAST WATCH), gothic horror (THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE), immersive mystery (Attica Locke's Highway 59 series), and journalistic nonfiction (Patrick Radden Keefe is a favorite).
Horror / Speculative:
Grounded horror or speculative fiction that is creepy and unsettling, but rooted in the real world.
Think LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND, and THE CABIN AT THE END OF THE WORLD.
Other Favorites: Jennifer McMahon, Simone St. James and Alex North.
Hey Twitter. Some updates to my #MSWL:
My picture book list is quite full, so I am TEMPORARILY closing to PBs. I remain open to illustrators.
I'm very eager to find: ADULT mystery, crime, domestic suspense and horror/speculative fiction.
• gothic and horror in MG, YA, and Adult that haunts you with its writing as much as the subject matter (not one for gratuitous gore)
• contemporary fantasy with fresh hooks, strong character dynamics, immersive worlds, & romance subplots.
