Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · 6d

When I open in April, as always, I encourage #ownvoices submissions of YA and MG by #POC and #LGBTQ+ I will not be open to picture book submissions. #MSWL

Still waiting for my f/f romcom based in the world of elite gymnastics, and/or at the college level, so like Stick It but gay. Please, and thank you. #MSWL

I'm preparing to reopen to queries next week and wanted to share my current #mswl:

Contemporary Fantasy in the vein of the films About Time and Your Name
Diverse MG like Aru Shah and the End of Time and Amina’s Voice
Foodie Magic like Chocolat and Garden Spells
LGBTQ Retellings

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · Mar 11

So if someone has a feminist YA Purim retelling or a queer Vashti/Esther story (must be YA), definitely send it to me! Doesn't matter that I'm closed to queries right now. I want to see it! Submission guidelines are here: emeraldcityliterary.com/lindaepstein/ #MSWL #amwriting #WritingCommunity

Hear me out: A Hamilton and Eliza retelling, but f/f. A revolutionary and a debutante fall in love—possibly in space—and it's complicated. #MSWL

Also with nonfiction, I am on the lookout for stories that raise awareness regarding social issues, particularly in the area of LGBTQIA+ rights and undoc. immigrants/dreamers. These are two issues very close to my heart and I will fight tooth and nail to advocate for them. #mswl

"Very hungry to work on more LGBTQ+ YA novels and diverse, inclusive reads. I'd also love to see more YA non-fiction hit my inbox." @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

@inthesestones I see you're open to picture books. Yay! Do you have PB preferences you can share? Your MSWL is detailed for MG and YA, but not PBs. Thanks so much.

This is hard—I'm still figuring out what really trips my trigger. #AntiMSWL, no rhyming books. On the #MSWL side: I love message-centric that don't come across as preachy. Laugh-out-loud funny is always a want. I'd kill for my own JACK (NOT JACKIE) or something with LGBT-themes!

Another #MSWL today! A YA sex comedy like American Pie, but with a female and/or LGBTQ friend group.

Naomi Davis The Caffeinated @NaomisLitPix · Mar 3

#MSWL I really want fun queer romances. All across the LGBTQ+ spectrum, with smart, fully developed characters, sharp dialogue/witty banter, family/friend/career drama, and beautiful, totally explored settings.

"Upmarket, structurally interesting, sweeping love stories of all kinds. I’d truly love a LGBTQ in the vein of ONE DAY or THE VERSIONS OF US." @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · Mar 1

Good morning! It's March 1st and I'm officially open to queries again at @PSLiterary!

Here's my #MSWL on my website, and I'm going to tweet a little bit about what I'm looking for... let's go. ericsmithrocks.com/blog/2019/01/3…

Hey, #amquerying authors! I'm open to queries again would love to read your work! I'm looking for YA SFF, contemporary, you name it. I love complex ideas, strong conflict, LGBTQIA characters, and more! Email query and first ten pages with QUERY in the subject line! #MSWL

To list some some very specific things I love: posthuman anything, morally grey heroes, animal familiars, characters who have to make sacrifices, unique fantasy worlds, people grappling with their own monstrosity, angry girls seeking revenge, and more! #MSWL

#askagent Do you have a #CR tropes you particularly hate/love @NaomisLitPix

Replying to @HRuthMiller

Personally, I love contemporary romance that is less tropey, and deals with deep character issues. Right now I am actively seeking LGBTQ+ contemporary romance! #MSWL
