Just finished @taekeller’s WHEN YOU TRAP A TIGER. Magic tigers! Stars in jars! Relatable sister relationships (raise your hand fellow peacemaking siblings 🙋🏼♀️)! And the writing 🤩 Writers, I’d love to see more enchanting stories like this in my inbox by diverse creators #MSWL
Nightfire Books @TorNightfireWe are actively looking for submissions from BIPOC authors. As a reminder, we are going to open for one week to un-agented subs starting July 15th. *Please note this will specifically be for BIPOC folks only.* We will share the link to submit on July 15.
Also, I am still doing AMA Twitter chats, for any BIPOC authors who write horror and are thinking of submitting. #MSWL
#amquerying #writingcommunity #writerscommunity #MSWL What I would love to see in my QueryManager. Keep in mind sometimes I don't know what I want until I see it, so don't hesitate to query me if your story doesn't match this list. I am only accepting YA queries at this time.
“For me, literary fiction lives and dies in its characters and writing, send me your complex, diverse characters grappling with what it means to be human something in the vein of Tom Rachman’s THE IMPERFECTIONISTS.” @maureen_moretti #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
Emily S. Keyes 😷 @esc_keyWatching the History Channel show ALONE. Reminds me I still looking for a female survival story (MG preferable but YA also maybe). Like MY SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN or HATCHET. #mswl
Or maybe like CASTAWAY. This idea of being alone for so long is particularly interesting to me now. #mswl
i wrote this in an introduction to my ~taste~ that i put together for our ed director & realised i never said it in public so:
i would really really really really love to work on a picture book biography or MG NF graphic novel about grace lee boggs #mswl
Kerstin Wolf @Kerstin_WolfI've noticed that I don't have as many acquiring editorial assistants or assistant editors on my submission lists as I'd like.
If you are an acquiring EA or assistant editor, please like, comment, and share this post so that me and other agents can contact you! #WritingCommunity
“LGBTQIA+ novel in the vein of ONE DAY (high concept, unique structure, deep and sweeping love story).” @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
(Note: Carly will be reopening to queries July 1st!)
In speculative fiction, I'm looking more for folklore, magical realism, surrealism, cozy fantasy, light fantasy, and atmospheric fantasy with lush world building and gorgeous prose, than traditional high/ epic fantasy. #MSWL
As a Southern person, working at a Southern publisher, I'd love to find Southern stories—in everything from contemporary to genre fiction! Particularly BIPOC and/or queer southern stories! #MSWL
