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 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
