“Stories featuring morally ambiguous protagonists! Give me your liars, your thieves. Your unlikeable peeps! I do NOT like reading about perpetually happy characters who spend their lives being good and moral (snooze).” @ceciliaclyra #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

I have a weird biography #mswl for any European historians with who can write cinematically and with the 100-proof WTF energy of, say, “Amadeus.” If you think you might be that person, DM me! Especially if you like a good 19th century German.

Had to make some tweaks to my #mswl page because a few updates on what I’m looking for + more books I’ve read and adored (also all my accounts are AMARI AND THE NIGHT BROTHERS stan accounts and the world should know that)

And my weirdest, ~vibey~ wishes: fierce mothers, not-quite-humanness, houses of ill repute, body weirdness, punk rock, craftsmanship, Over the Garden Wall-ish, grotesqueries, cowboys (any gender), seafaring (feminine), convents (hijinks), and characters who remind me of Roy Kent.

Some more specific interests: Religious faith and/or grappling as a lens on coming of age, generational stories, old timey cities, family secrets, hauntings, mistakes that were meant to happen, and optimism in spite of it all.

I am taking a good chunk of much-needed vacation time this week, and looking forward to fitting in a lot of fun reading over the holiday. But when I’m back, I would love to dive in on new submissions! Here’s my #mswl these days:

Elements I’m always looking for: Historical fiction that reaches across the years (particularly stories we don’t see enough), family dynamics, settings as character, interesting narrative formats, clever humor, and writing that pulls you along to the next page.

Here's your second #MSWL! "Amanda would love to see submissions that feature coming-of-age stories like Stranger Things, stories that trend more psychological than bloody, and fresh takes on Gothic or haunted house stories." @wensday95

In MG: Stories that are lyrical and on the more literary range of the spectrum. Especially ones that have some invisible chronic condition representation that I think so important and something I’d love to see for this age category. #mswl

I’m YA: I would love to see stories from BIPOC creators that explores culture through things like music or food or art. The way those things can connect us to culture and also cross cultural barriers is a relatable way to explore identity, especially in the YA space. #mswl

In YA: I’m listening to Red (Taylor’s version) on repeat—my “All Too Well” ask in the Romance section might have given me away—but a story inspired by “Everything Has Changed” would be right up my alley. Bonus points if it’s set during summer vacation. #mswl

In Romance: I also wouldn’t say no to a “tis the damn season” inspired holiday story. Doesn’t have to be Christmas either, can just be about homecoming. #mswl

In Romance: Hear me out, a second-chance romance inspired by Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well”…Like a story where the timing was all wrong, but they’re older now and maybe they needed to grow up in order to work? #mswl

In Romance: All the grumpy-sunshine tropes. Seriously ALL OF THEM. If your couple comps to Roy-Keeley or Roy-Ted or whatever the f/f version of that would be, please send it to me. #mswl

Hi friends! I have updated my #MSWL for #reasons possibly relating to a celebrity breakup but also because it’s been a while & it needed a refresh! You can find my full #mswl here: evascalzo.com/mswl
But I’ll thread a few highlights #amquerying #amwriting #WritingCommunity
