Some #MSWL things:
1) MG fantasy, please! Especially myth-based, w/a strong focus on character, & a beautiful world/setting.
2) Contemporary MG/YA with LGBTQ+ characters.
3) MG graphic novels!
4) Underrepresented voices.
5) YA or MG that deals w/grief and/or mental health.
Think THE NIX with a more reasonable word count, J. Ryan Stradal-type regional flavor but by/from/reflecting a wide array of people and communities. I gravitate strongly to contemporary over historical but do love a good multigenerational tale. #MSWL
Hannah VanVels 🪴🌙 @hannahvanvelsGood morning, #amquerying #amwriting community!
PitMad may be over. There were almost half a million pitches, which is an overwhelming turnout! Because of that, I know I 💯 missed some things.
Query me anyways!
I'm particularly eager to build up my MG and Adult lists, but I can't resist a good PB or YA.
I'm perennially on the lookout for BIPOC, LGBT, and Neurodiverse creators in all categories.
Check out my #MSWL: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/hann…
Hiii Writers!! 🥳 ❤️I’ve been looking at what’s on my list right now.
So I’d love to see more Mysteries, Suspense & Thrillers in my box! If you write from MG, YA, to Adult.
Please check my #MSWL here manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/anal…
Link to submit is in my BIO!! 🥳❤️❤️
#mswl I’m really wanting to find a great YA where one of the MCs is transgender. If it’s cute or funny or lighthearted, all the better. Although it can also have its serious parts too. #WritingCommnunity #amwriting #amquerying #amediting
ronnie 🧡 happy pride @mxronnierileyRep I'd like to see more of? NONBINARY CHARACTERS PLEASE!
Nonbinary characters who fall in love, who are messy and real, and just trying their best.
It's so, so important to me that there's more nonbinary rep in books.
(Agented submissions only, please.)
Relatedly, I would love a book on CTE and traumatic brain injury, contact sports, capitalism, identity, and culture from an expert on the subject and/or a contact sport athlete (I'm looking at you, #DerbyTwitter). #MSWL
#WritingCommunity: When folks wonder what kind of true crime I'm looking for, Killer Inside on Netflix is exactly it. This story weaves together questions about social norms, capitalism, culture, and deviation thoughtfully and with nuance. #MSWL
Aaron A. Reed 🤖🖋️🎲🏳️🌈 @aaronareedIn 1985, a mysterious group of women calling themselves the "Games Mistresses" released the first of a series of text adventure games. The story behind their creation is the wildest one you'll read today. #50YearsOfTextGames
If someone takes the bones of this—cultish women's group holes up in historic house & creates text-based adventure games (minus the hints of far-right extremism)—& write a novel, please dear god send it to me. "There are many Miss Martindales..."—Are you kidding?! #MSWL
The New York Times @nytimesEven if you don’t have a fear of heights, you probably won’t be able to try out the 82-foot-long, see-through swimming pool in London that sits more than 10 stories above the ground. Pool access is limited to select residents at a luxury apartment complex. nyti.ms/34F2hIy pic.twitter.com/BBCRnvehYW
