-LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, and neurodivergent narrators and stories are always welcome!
If your manuscript matches any of these items, I’d love to see your work! Submission guidelines can be found on the @fluxbooks and @JollyFishPress websites. 4/4
I'm watching the new Father of the Bride and I want to see a story about the sister. #mswl a story about a queer girl who is seen as a failure by her family and gets tasked to design the whole wedding parties attire.
Helen Lane @HFLane_writingSo, today I get to announce my big news.....
A few weeks ago, I joined The Booker Albert Literary Agency as a Junior Agent!!!!!!
I won't officially open to queries until the 1st September but I am actively building my client list (and may have some more news soon 👀)
My MSWL is not up yet, but I will be representing YA, NA, and Adult. Please send me Fantasy, Paranormal Romance (in a contemporary setting), Action and Adventure, Thrillers, LGBTQ+, Horror and Sci Fi.
Caitlin White @caitforestellI’m opening now for the last two weeks in August ONLY for writers traditionally marginalized from publishing, including (but not limited to), BIPOC and LGBTQ+ writers and those with a chronic illness or disability. You don’t have to disclose how you fit… (1/2) #amquerying #mswl
…and you don’t have to submit only work that mirrors your identity (though I’d love to see that too!) but please respect this space. I’m only open to #YA and #MG. Please query me here: QueryManager.com/caitlinwhite
Kiki @kiananguHappy Friday!
Want to let #amquerying folks know that my current #mswl is exclusively (hyperbole!) sapphic, dark, comedic horror feat. BIPOC casts!
I’m a fan of Scream, Fear Street 1994, Urban Legend (2001), The Descent
I’m that goofy bitch from the block w/as big mouth!!!
Needed more words 😅:
Looking for this in YA and Adult!
If you don’t have horror, my next wish is contemporary women’s fiction featuring a main character or ensemble cast in the mid-20 - mid-30s. I’m not married and don’t want kids; I have hangovers and lesbian drama 🥳 #mswl
I would also love to see:
💫female MCs with -ologist jobs (paleontologist, marine biologist, etc.)
💫regency era romances
💫literary fiction with happy endings
So, for any agents listening 👀 I would love to see more of the following adult fiction submissions in my inbox! #mswl
💫rom-coms where the MCs meet in Chapter 1
💫locked-room thrillers and mysteries
💫queer & BIPOC characters
I'm trying to put my #mswl together for y'all but every time I write something I want to read I get way too specific about it
like yes please I would like a queer retelling of the Morrígan myth set during the Irish War of Independence with speculative magic vibes
Angela Song @angelasong95asians are the original horse girls and I’m just begging someone to write about a girl and her 3500 BCE horse domestication adventures
Oooo yes give me this in YA or adult! Is it queer? Even better! #MSWL
I'd love to have in my inbox: a contemporary ya with voice for days, a strong hook, a lot of heart, and genuine humor. Preferably with queer, disability, and/or nd rep. #mswl
Here's a sweet #MSWL tweet from @AgentJessicaA!
"I want more joyful books—book club fiction, women’s fiction, romance, memoir—just books that are filled with positivity and hope. Uplifting, happy stories with BIPOC and LGBTQ+ characters are especially wanted."
Ernie Chiara @erniechiara✨In the generes I rep, I'd love to see more projects by writers from Black, Indigenous, Latine/x, Asian, AAPI, Middle Eastern, and African communities and their far-reaching diasporas, as well as the LGBTQIA+, trans and nonbinary, and disabled and neurodiverse communities. #MSWL
✨Open to #F, #SF, and #H for #A, #YA, and #MG
