I would love to see some smart horror or speculative fiction that veers toward the literary #MSWL

(And for the search engines: that’s, yes; please send me adult or YA second-world fantasy with Jewish elements, or YA Jewish magical realism, Jewish Speculative fiction, literary Jewish fantasy novels, et cetera #mswl)

Today's #MSWL:
I'd love a literary mystery. Some twisty suspense that feels *new* and avoids the girl-gone-missing trope (or turns it on its head).
More #ownvoices, please!
HORROR/a fresh ghost story.
Yr big ensemble cast that will make me cry. Make me cry, dammit! 🤗

Hey writer friends!

I've been closed to submissions since the summer and... I'll be opening up again on March 1st!

Literary fiction! Young Adult books! SFF! Cookbooks! Quirky non-fiction and moving memoir! Here's what I'm looking for in 2019. #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/2019/01/30/man…

If you're meeting with me at the @SDSUWritersConf I'm mostly looking for mysteries, women's fiction, suspense, thrillers, literary and upmarket fiction. #MSWL

A literary novel about any of these women; their relationships; the 1950s New York art scene in general ... GIVE IT TO ME #mswl newyorker.com/magazine/2018/…

It's January, which means it's cold & gray & I hate leaving the house, so send me your work to keep me company! #MSWL: would love a more literary thriller a la THE TWELVE LIVES OF SAMUEL HAWLEY or BARBED WIRE HEART; writing from marginalized writers a la THE LEAVERS or

Correction #2: Middle Grade: Humor--if you can make me laugh, I'll sign you up. Literary: I've never had a Newbery-winning client and I want one. Adventure stories, grounded fantasy (but not epic fantasy), sci-fi. #ownvoices for sure. Artists, MG graphic novels! #MSWL

A couple corrections to my previous thread. For Adult fiction: I do very little adult fiction, but I do love reading it. Offbeat/literary but not experimental, commercial and book club, adventure/mystery. No fantasy, sci-fi, category romance. #MSWL

Happy New Year! For 2019, I thought I'd throw out some #MSWL ideas for writers. Broadly, I'm looking for all kinds of picture books by author/illustrators, MG, YA, Childrens' NF, Adult Narrative NF, and adult Lit Fiction. Details thread follows:
