Ok new #MSWL: nonfiction sexuality book for chronically single people, on the specific hurdles they face around sexuality (or lack thereof) #editor #amwriting #writerslife

I'm not usually interested in WWII stories, but this story, either nf or fictionalized, is definitely on my #MSWL: Freddie Oversteegen, Dutch resistance fighter who killed Nazis through seduction, dies at 92 wapo.st/2QBg2jf?tid=ss… Also, may Freddie enjoy heaven

Nonfiction kid lit writers! We’ve seen a ton of PB biographies acquired over the last year or so—the market is ready and open to fresh takes on PB nonfiction. Think outside the biography box! And after you do—send me your stuff :) #MSWL

Little late to #MSWL today, but I'd love for some agents to send some illustrated, quirky, pop culture adult nonfiction or some lighthearted, contemporary MG & YA with some strong nerd culture flavor! (I've been itching for some cosplay/comic con/food competition stories.)

Dipping out of sabbatical for #mswl!

First, I’d love to see more nonfiction. Especially interested in ecology/conservation & American history through the lens of marginalized people.

I’m also on the lookout for big-hearted, voice-driven middle grade—with plenty of humor, obv.

It's #MSWL day! Send me your voice & character driven stories about the immigrant experience, nonfiction projects with a super cool hook, super duper deadpan or dark humor, international mythology, mental health. Books that make the world a lil nicer. #MG #YA #PB

Meredith Bernstein @mgoodbern · 12 Sep 2018

As it’s #MSWL day, I’d like to find several things in my inbox: hypnotic family saga(multigenerational ); psychological suspense with wit and insight; love story with big emotional twists. And any truly platform driven non-fiction. Send it!!

Alexandra Weiss @akaweiss · 12 Sep 2018

Eager to find a smart and unique fiction or nonfiction #PB or #graphicnovel that discusses the importance of taking care of the environment and our oceans. #MSWL

Chloe Moffett @TheBookMechanic · 12 Sep 2018

#MSWL CULTS. Novels about cults, nonfiction about cults and/or the psychology behind them.

Liza Dawson Assoc. @LizaDawsonAssoc · 12 Sep 2018

Happy #MSWL Day! Any authors curious what Liza's wishing for? Here it is!

Zesty historical adventure/thriller
Literary women’s fiction about motherhood
Elegant, smart spy novel by someone in the intelligence community
Narrative nonfiction about a turning point in history

Emmanuelle Morgen @EmMorgen · 12 Sep 2018

In adult nonfiction, I’m always looking for self-help, pop science, psychology titles. #MSWL

Dara Hyde @dzhyde · 12 Sep 2018

Hey, it's #MSWL day! I've got my page over on the MSWL site (link below) and even though my inbox and to read pile are overflowing, I can say I'd love more comedy, narrative nonfiction, and travel writing. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/dara…

Emmanuelle Morgen @EmMorgen · 12 Sep 2018

Other wishes include kids nonfiction for any age. Also, picture books that are quirky/different and would make good board books #MSWL

Danielle Chiotti @daniellechiotti · 12 Sep 2018

Now for some nonfiction #mswl: cookbooks, food narrative/memoir, parenting, social issues, micro histories that bring an underrated event/person/movement to light.

Connor Goldsmith @dreamoforgonon · 12 Sep 2018

I could spend ages thinking about #MSWL day so I will just be succinct: in fiction still looking mainly for smart SF/F with a fresh hook, especially by/about ppl from marginalized POVs. In nonfic: ppl w/established platforms in pop culture/media, humor, social politics, history.
