Jill Gutowitz @jillboardMore people should be talking about this: 'Gentlemen Jack,' a lesbian period drama series, is out April 22 on HBO. It follows Anne Lister, a real lesbian landowner in the 1800s, in her pursuit of finding a wife when female queerness was simply unheard of. It's must-see gay TV.
1. This is the first time I've heard of this!! Thank you for doing the Lord's work!
2. Make it at least a little bit magical/speculative and shove it in my inbox ASAP, thank you #MSWL
jem zero @jem_zero@LindaEpstein Clarification question: Are you exclusively considering #OwnVoices Jewish characters? My contemporary fantasy WIP has a disabled/queer main who is Jewish. I am physically disabled & queer like the character, but while I have Jewish family, I am not personally Jewish.
I'm currently open to middle grade and YA submissions. If you think your manuscript fits what I'm looking for, send it. You can go to #MSWL or their website, to see what I'm interested in. I'm not exclusively looking for anything.
I'm starting to catch up on my submissions. I've answered all queries and have read all submissions sent before January 15th. To celebrate, I'm reposting my pretty #MSWL pic.
#MSWL: On the hunt for some non-fiction! I'm a huge fan of pop culture (I worked with actors for 8 years and am an avid television fan), true crime (no mobs or cartels), and books about mental health (I recently read On Edge: A Journey Through Anxiety which I related to A LOT).
Those who know me know I’m a sucker for a beautifully-conjured sense of place. My heart broke to see #NotreDame in flames, so this week’s wish is for stories that conjure the places, large and small, famous and not, that we each hold dear. #MSWL #WishlistWednesday
Looking at sales reports this morning and yo. The appetite for funny illustrated middle grade is HIGH and not stopping. Capt Underpants: 1997; Dork Diaries: 2001; Wimpy Kid: 2007. We're just about due for another breakout series. If you're writing it send it to me. #MSWL
Watched #ThePerfectDate yesterday and now I want a YA romcom based on a relationship where one person is paid for platonic lessons on how to not be awkward/how to talk on a date but then THEY fall in love. Like Hitch, but Will Smith and Kevin James fall in love instead #mswl
chatting panels w/the brilliant @CarolinePerny and it occurs to me I crave a WOC take on the basic Hulk trope that plays with how complicated it is to be angry as a WOC, especially a BWOC. that gives permission for fury & recognizes that yeah, you're always fucking angry. #MSWL
beth phelan (semi-hiatus & closed to queries) @beth_phelananyway, if anyone out there ever wanted to shine another light on these things, hit me up. i’m slowly trying to be open about this stuff.
....this is also on my eternal #mswl
