I am on #MSWL! Though I am currently closed to submissions it is never a bad practice to research potential editors/agents for future submission opportunities so go check me out at manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/jack…
Been meaning to mention that I have an editor #MSWL page a la @ManuscriptWList.
#Writers: this may also be a helpful starting point to see what a #literaryagent is looking for in #submissions.
Maria Vicente @msmariavicenteThrowing a new #MSWL into the universe: a YA historical fiction about disco subculture! 🕺🏿
I’m particularly interested in a story that explores:
🌀disco’s beginnings in Black and queer communities
🌀 the commercialization and appropriation of the genre as it gained popularity
🌀 the (racist and homophobic foundation of the) anti-disco movement
Agent V @VeroniKaboomBRING BACK THE ROMANTIC ADVENTURE FILM NOW*
*also please make WAY more romventures that feature BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ love stories, thanks! pic.twitter.com/bBelGSCesW
but also in book form for I have a NEED #mswl
💫 Adult magical realism from Latinx creators. Think the gorgeous, atmospheric, queer af writing of Anna-Marie McLemore and Samantha Mabry, but age it up into adult fic. #MSWL
💫 I’d love a messy dysfunctional mother/daughter adult contemporary in the vein of VERY NICE, or a family saga a la THE MOST FUN WE EVER HAD, I’m here for it, particularly if you’re a BIPOC author or have a queer story in this realm! #MSWL
💫 Paranormal adult rom com. I’m still on the hunt for a vampire or witchy rom com, and queer it if you got it. I’m talking charming, quirky, funny, steamy, tropey, just add witches and/or vamps. Easy peasy. 🤩🧛🏻♀️🧙🏻♀️#MSWL
💫 I would looove a cozy mystery in the vein of FINLAY DONOVAN IS KILLING IT, but make it queer and from a BIPOC creator. Non cop-centric lighthearted mystery with some serious patriarchy ass-kicking & maaaaybe a sexy time or two. Not steamy necessarily, just sexy. #MSWL
💫 Fat main characters in romance. I’d like some please. Body positivity only, no dieters or weight loss stories. If she just happens to be queer and wooed and adored by a super sexy love interest, I might use the phrase “dream come true” when requesting your full. #MSWL
I’m so excited to open to queries Friday, March 26th, so here are some of my current top #MSWL items!
💫 Diverse romance is at the top of my list. I’m desperate for queer contemporary, historical or rom coms f/f or nb/f), as well as roms by BIPOC creators! All tropes welcome.
Monthly reminder that I'd really love some darker small town dynamic stories especially if they have found family, queer characters, a spooky forest and a light magical element.
Super Sailor D.J. @OhHeyDJLRT. I’ve said it once end I’ll say it again, more stories about messy queer adults. Romantic is fine too but stories about platonic relationships would be cool too.
My forever #1 on my #mswl 🥺
Okay, time to share my #MSWL:
Children's, YA, & Pop Culture Nonfiction are my 🍞&🧈. I love stories of hope and humor, a good rom-com, strong female leads, and magic of all sorts! Big fan of LGBT+ and BIPOC joy. I don't love murder. DM me for query guidelines!
Jean Kwok @JeanKwokMuch thanks to @meifung100 @kellyekell & the @thesundaytimes for this important article on the lack of diversity in thriller writing! twitter.com/johnmurrays/st…
This. Article. It's my entire career. My life.
PLEASE i am literally begging for more mystery/thrillers from BIPOC, queer, and neurodiverse writers. #MSWL
