On the YA side I want more SFF that features friend groups over “the chosen one” trope - I love a chaotic but loving found family! #mswl
I’m really grabbed by adult science fiction that takes place in near/far futures or invented worlds with technology that makes us question what it means to live well, with stories focused characters' unique lives like in Becky Chambers’ Wayfayers & Monk and Robot series #mswl
i'm also over on #mswl and i've had a great time putting together my profile! please take a look here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/hana…
Welcome to 2023 everyone
Pleased to announce my official #MSWL is live and available. For details on what I’ll be looking for please refer to this page⬇️
I especilly want: Fantasy romance! (Not paranormal romance - needs to be fantasy!) Near-future adult sci-fi. Epic fantasy based on non-European settings. Space opera with non-European/American influences!
I am always looking for adult and YA SFF! That includes pretty much any speculative fiction you can think of, although I prefer my sci-fi on the heavier side. (So not really near-future stuff that's "just" dystopian without awesome tech etc.)
Hey #writingcommunity! We are open to manuscript submissions! Future House Publishing is currently looking for and accepting family friendly adult manuscripts in the Sci-fi and Fantasy genres. Learn more here: FutureHousePublishing.com/submissions

Oh no I have one more for now: Pre-Raphaelite inspired fantasy, sf or horror
Rebecca Matte @RebeccaLMatte4) Keep up to date with current trends/comps. I've seen a few queries described as "unique" with a premise that is reminiscent of a 2022 release. Obvs 2 people can have the same idea, but keeping up to date will give better comps and help you distinguish yours.
5) Finally, do keep in mind my #mswl for queries. I really only accept romance & SFF, and so general contemporary fiction is not for me, even if it features the type of characters/relationships that I like.
Thank you all for your amazing queries, and I hope this helps some.

✨I'm now an SFF agent @ladderbirdlit & open to queries! Super excited to join such an amazing team— I look forward to connecting w/editors in Jan !!
While I remain at UPC acquiring nonfic, I always knew I'd get back into the world of SFF someday. 😊 Read on for a #MSWL thread
"I read widely in YA, and enjoy just about every genre in it. I love moving contemporary reads, thrilling sci-fi, and lush fantasy."
I have a manuscript wishlist now 🥰🥰 i'm but a humble EA but send me things and if I love them i'll do what i can! #mswishlist manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/tova…
This also goes for sci-fI! I’m not the best fit for hard sci-fi, but anything that feels “five seconds in the future” (ex. “Black Mirror”) is right up my alley. I couldn’t get enough of THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD MOTHERS and “Severance,” and would love to find something similar!
Give me books for #generationartemis! All the space books EXCEPT space opera (sorry!)! Think Andy Weir, Mary Doria Russell, and Fonda Lee. Also more fiction picture books with space themes! Non-fiction is good too, but I want something fresh.
Anjanette Barr @bookbarristaSo thrilled that the official announcement went out today that I have been promoted to Associate Agent at Dunham Literary. Eternal thanks to @JennieDunhamLit for taking a chance on me and being an excellent mentor! Now who wants a #MSWL ? 🧵
First, you can find out more about me and what I'm looking for anytime on our website: dunhamlit.com/anjanette-barr…
Still hunting for the perfect Mystic Owl novel. Under 75K, Spicy heat level, and some form of fantasy or sci-fi. #MSWL
I am looking for stories from Black creators and from marginalized communities.
Bring on the MG fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary, and/or coming-of-age stories centered around black characters, experiences, and BLACK JOY!
Sam 🌈 @SleepySamReadsI desperately want more queer disabled rep in books. Give me gay wheelchair users in space. Give me an asexual autistic queen in high fantasy who is a badass and takes no shit. Give me a deaf non binary space commander who’s team has adjusted so wonderfully that they can (1/2)
this is the stuff of #MSWL for sure
GUYS! No matter how amazing it is, I DON'T ACQUIRE CONTEMPORARY. Only fantasy or sci-fi (or any sub genre thereof) romance. What I REALLY want is a High heat, under 75K words. Things I'd love to see:
Monster romance #MSWL
Before I open up to queries, I thought I’d share my shiny new #MSWL : manuscriptwishlist.com/?post_type=msw…
