Agents! I am caught up on subs through 6/19 and am hungry for more. A few things on my #MSWL today: a twisty YA thriller I can read at the beach, an #ownvoices MG novel with queer representation, a picture book in the vein of ESCARGOT with a protagonist that should be a plushie.
Kat Kerr @thekatsmewsHappy Monday, everyone! Today is brought to you by the letter "M" so I figured, why not do some #MSWL! (See, what I did there? Yeah, no one ever said I was cool.)
So, if you have a MS that matches something I'm looking for, please query me! I'd love to see it in my inbox.
When it comes to literary, I actively search for #ownvoices works, but especially those from the POC, immigrant, and LGBTQ+ communities. I'm not really looking for Americana stories right now. Nothing wrong with being the next John Steinbeck, it just wouldn't be for me. #mswl
Caitlin McDonald @literallycaitI will be reopening to queries on Monday, July 29th. Polish those pitches! In the meantime, I'll be tweeting some updates on what I am (and am not) looking for. #askagent #querytip
There is not enough representation of people with chronic illness (whether visible or not) in literature.
I would LOVE to see an #ownvoices YA featuring a protagonist with a chronic illness. The story needs to be told. #MSWL bit.ly/31Jy0pg

Hey #MSWL: Am seeking a great love story with dimension, humor, and a strong commercial hook. Think ONE DAY or THE LIGHT WE LOST, but not necessarily a weepy. I am esp eager to read #ownvoices stories or underrepresented narratives in this space.
#MSWL: These are true heroes and we need to hear their stories. #ownvoices
To earn extra money, aged just 10, Kami dropped out of school and began trekking with his elders up peaks exceeding 3,000m. #sherpa #nepal bbc.co.uk/news/world-asi…
Mara Delgado-Sanchez mostly away 🇵🇷 @little_mswriterAladdin-inspired/Aladdin retellings are on my #mswl. I’d love to find some! 😍 pic.twitter.com/J6GdXf0JI1
Would love an own voices Roma story set in/around Sacromonte, Granada! It would be lovely if it had a touch of fantasy too, but interested in more Roma stories! #mswl
#MSWL contemp w/ #ownvoices rep for mental illness.
I don’t want a pretty glittering version of it bc lets be real mental illness sucks a big back of dicks.
Give me the thoughts none of us voice that make us feel like the world is going to swallow us whole.
&then give me hope.
Cheryl B. Klein @chavelaqueI enjoyed TSIAAS, but I kept being distracted by calculating their routes & travel times around NYC. “She could *maybe* get there in half an hour if she takes the B to the A & all the trains arrive just right...”
FYI, if it’s legally possible, I would 100% publish an #ownvoices YA novel about a teenage girl or boy in the Motown star system. Signed, someone who read DREAMGIRL: MY LIFE AS A SUPREME in high school & *loved* it. #mswl
Dahlia Adler @MissDahlELamaPublishing, on behalf of the LGBTQReads Tumblr, please publish more:
1. Harry Potter, but gay, especially wlw
2. "Something mlm like the Raven Boys," because then they read THE WICKER KING and love it and then I'm stuck
3. ownvoices m/m fantasy
4. Lady knights
Hello please consider this whole thread a #mswl for me personally
Authors! I've been closed to queries for 3 months due to ill health in my family. I am re-opening today, but being somewhat specific on what I'm seeking. Please read this thread or my #MSWL manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara… (The tulip is just for fun.) ....
I've tumbled into a research hole about the Jewish-American Mafia, and...folks, this is so specific...but if anybody's sitting on an ownvoices YA set during the turn-of-the-20th-century and following a teen swept up by the Purple Gang, I'm your girl #MSWL
I'm starting to catch up on my submissions. I've answered all queries and have read all submissions sent before January 15th. To celebrate, I'm reposting my pretty #MSWL pic.
