#MSWL Looking for very commercial, highly aspirational YA with own-voices, diverse characters, especially contemporary YA, or contemporary fantasy YA. Please put in referral line of Query manager link: "#MSWL: some combo of the above language."
Hey, writing peeps! My inbox would love more queries for #OwnVoices YA contemporary, all MG fiction, and all kinds of adult thrillers. Please paste query and 1st 5 pages in email and sent to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #diversity #MSWL #WritingCommunity
Read the late great Barbara Neely’s BLANCHE ON THE LAM yesterday. So sad we only have 4 of these. I’m going to have to dole them out to myself as treats...
I’d love a contemporary #ownvoices mystery that tells it like it is, just as Ms. Neely did. #MSWL
Dear #amquerying writers,
I'm working from home (as is everyone) and I really need some escapist queries in my inbox. Send me your upmarket women's fiction, contemporary romances, thrillers, and contemporary fantasies (+1 if it's queer, +1 if it's diverse and #ownvoices). #MSWL
I just heard the tale of Mongolian princess/pro wrestler/warrior Khutulun and wanted to use it as a short #mswl discussion. I'd love to see an #ownvoices novel about her, but I also thought I'd explain why this is catching my eye
#mswl I REALLY want an #ownvoices diverse sci-fi or fantasy YA or adult series. We Hunt the Flame? Children of Blood and Bone? Why are manuscripts like this not in my inbox? If you have something like this I would LOVE your proposal in my inbox email@example.com.
Rachel Mann @rachelphilippaWhile we're all locked up reading and writing / glued to social media, I thought I might do a thread about the kinds of submissions I'm looking for, because it worked pretty well last time...
Always, always, #ownvoices stories from under-represented writers and characters – including neuroatypical protagonists; characters with visible and invisible disabilities; stories involving unpaid carers and young carers; the broadest definition of queer love / sex stories...
Mara Delgado-Sanchez 🇵🇷 @little_mswriterSince I’m actively acquiring, here’s a bit of my mswl. A couple of things:
1. Diverse and Own Voices stories are always welcome in my inbox
2. Please don’t pitch me on twitter.
3. And of note, I’m only accepting agented submissions at this time!
Agents, here’s my #MSWL as we shift to wfh for a while! Time to get cracking!
Agents, if you snag something great today that would be a good fit for @BeamingBooksMN please keep me in mind! Send me a DM if you need my email address. #PitMad #kidlit #PB #OwnVoices #MG #CB
My #MSWL: naomikrueger.com/about/mswl/
Updated #MSWL: humorous PB's with a surprise twist, and non-fic focusing on unsung heroes (pref. #ownvoices), MG with a clear narrative arc, unforgettable characters and a strong emotional core. Stories that bring out the magic in the ordinary. And ghosts!
I'm looking for #ownvoices and diversity rich speculative fiction stories, but I’m open to all stories compelling enough #YA #NA #A #Romance #mswl
Send your query and FULL ms to my attention (Amy Acosta) via entangledpublishing.submittable.com/submit/
