I read a friend's script today that made me LOL so hard I actually had to stop reading for a second to recover and this made me realize I need more comedy in my life.
Send me your funny manuscripts.
Specifically I'm look for funny thrillers, mysteries, & romance. Adult & YA
Send me your fresh, voice-driven MG realistic contemporaries! I’m looking for stories—esp from mariginalized creators—that feature unconventional families, first crushes, community & activism, family secrets, girls dealing w/ unwanted body attention, angry girls, enby MCs. #MSWL
A note: I don't accept queries to any email except submissions(@)howlandliterary(.)com
(Unless I have asked you personally to send a query elsewhere).
Please follow our website directions. They are small, but mighty! I will delete & feel heaps guilty, but also ruthless.
I love weddings so much and would love a wedding romance. Any trope! (Except cheating, I hate cheating stories!!!)
A wedding planner romance would be fun. Or a wedding cake baker!
I just really love weddings!
Caitlin McDonald @literallycaitArtemis was a 12yo criminal mastermind who figured out how to find what NO ONE ELSE believed was even real! And now we're giving that all credit to his dad?? I did not wait nearly 20 years for this movie just to see them do Artemis dirty like this.
Anyway if you've got a MG ms with an antihero genius protagonist like the REAL Artemis Fowl, please send it to me! Unlike Disney, I believe kids can be the architects of their own stories. #MSWL
I'm thinking about Biblical re-imaginings & can we re-claim Lilith? What about a feminist YA about the badass 1st partner of Adam? Remember how evil Morgan Le Fay was reclaimed as awesome Morgaine in The Mists of Avalon? Somebody do that for Lilith in a YA & SEND IT TO ME! #mswl
Updated my #MSWL. For #fiction I would love the next Something in the Water/Catherine Steadman or The Whisper Man/Alex North. Romantic suspense, romcoms, & juicy and/or heartfelt fiction a la Elizabeth Strout or Liane Moriarty. I like to laugh and cry. bit.ly/2Tztzdu
The Library Owl 🎄🎅🦉 @SketchesbyBozeI’m never not thinking about St. Werburgh (died 699), who raised a beloved goose from the dead after it had already been eaten by her foe and digested. The bones took on flesh and the goose returned to life “with a glad honk.” pic.twitter.com/9Soh7dtmRo
#MSWL THIS is the retelling I'm waiting for.
“Send me your baking cookbook proposals, especially allergy-sensitive ones. Reinvent the wheel on attention-grabbing cakes and easy-to-make recipes.” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
Barlow Adams @BarlowAdams9: Can I sleep with you?
9: Had a dream about the Lullaby Lady.
9: An old woman with no skin on her hands.
M: Why do you call her that?
9: Because she stands next to your bed and hums while you sleep.
M: Sure, just let Daddy put the house up for sale real quick.
Pretty much any weird, creepy, unsettling thing your kid comes up with unprovoked is on my #MSWL. 🤷🏽♀️
