I know seeing Bad Queer Lit Takes on Twitter gets really anxiety inducing for authors, so lemme tell you as someone who gets piles of requests for very specific queer recs every day: all the things you fear no one wants are wanted very badly by somebody.

My favorite novels are literary stories focused on family, relationships, sexuality, mental illness, or recovery.

In particular, stories that explore sexuality are near + dear to my heart. I needed those stories when I was a teen (and still need/love/want them today) #MSWL

(I love queer fiction and queer stories, from all parts of the sexuality and gender spectra, including coming out and coming of age stories but also just LGBTQ people doing normal stuff people in books can do - solve crimes, fall in love, makes mistakes and find themselves)

I judge all my submissions on three criteria - strength of concept (is it marketable? is it individual? is it interesting?), confidence of voice (you get a sense of the fluency of a voice from one page alone) and sustained compelling storytelling (which I need a full ms to judge)

Right now I'm looking for contemporary fiction (both commercial and upmarket), historical fiction and crime fiction. I'm really keen to hear from diverse voices - BIPOC writers, LGBT writers, regional writers, disabled writers, working class writers, writers without a degree.

I'll be offended if I don't get a queer romcom in my box when I reopen.

Even more so if it's best friends to lovers!!!

#MSWL Would really like to see some LGBTQ+ contemporary YA in my inbox when I’m back from vacation, so, agents, if you’ve got something you think I’d enjoy, please send it over! I love complex characters, and deep, emotional stories. Hooky concept + voice, please!

Specifically, I'd love...plus-sized heroines, manuscripts with disabled rep, lgbtq+ stories, a mystery/suspense series with a female protagonist that is an expert in a thinky field (like the Temperance Brennan series by Kathy Reichs), deep MG with a lot of emotional gravitas 2/

Lastly, my #1 #mswl is a YA or adult queer VICIOUS. I love the dynamic between Eli and Victor, and it doesn't have to be SFF, I just want that best-friends-turned-"I want to kill you" enemies with lots of sexual tension. To add to that, I love Killing Eve and need that as well.

A F/F sports romance. I'm shipping Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird, so if you have a story you'd comp to their story, please send it my way. Or you can comp it to Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris. Doesn’t have to be soccer either. #mswl 5/
