- Adult and YA speculative fiction like VE Schwab and Madeline Miller.
- Fluffy, happy romance.
- Have you read anything by TJ Klune? Because I'm looking for the next TJ Klune. Hilarious, emotional, awesome.

“I loved THE DREAMERS by Karen Thompson Walker. Send me more spec fiction, even better if it has an environmental angle. Adult, YA, and graphic novels welcome!” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

#MSWL Alert: I'd love to see a #MG or #YA with a #climate or #environmental theme, speculative/near-future or contemporary. Bonus if it's #ownvoices from a writer of color or about an under-served community!

Writers: I want all your quirky coming of age (adult) novels. If it’s slipstream, speculative, weird, dreamy, send it my way. I want witches. I would like to see anything that gets weird in similar ways to Daisy Johnson. If it feels like a punch to my face, great! #mswl

prose-forward crossover speculative fiction that traffics in "what-if"s, wonder, & what the inimitable @clarebeams calls "the living strangeness of the world" #MSWL

Agents, I am actively acquiring MG, YA, GN, and the occasional PB. Commercial-Literary. Immigrant, LBGTQIA+, BIPOC voices. Speculative fiction, horror, fantasy, contemporary. Big fan of underdogs, flawed characters, impossible situations. #mswl #ya #mg #pb #gn

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

Replying to @writerswkend

Here is my #mswl darleyandersonblog.com/2020/02/25/mee… Generally, outside of crime, things that are uplifting & are about finding/making connections. High concept, feel-good, love stories. And across children's uplifting again, funny, things inspired by kindness and nature.

#mswl In adult -- voice and hook. Contemporary, historical, fantasy, speculative fiction, fantastical realism. Books I’ve recently called faves include The Interestings, A Gentleman in Moscow, Nothing to See Here, The Starless Sea, The Power, and the Broken Earth Trilogy 8/?

YOUNG ADULT:
- Literary, character-driven stories featuring diverse ensembles and strong points of view
- Joyful romcoms about marginalized protagonists
- Light fantasy / speculative fiction

I’m still looking for my Black Mirror comp! Had some close ones, but still no dice. Although now, I’m leaning more towards stories like San Junipiero or Hang the DJ as opposed to dark and grim. Still twisty, but more full of heart. #mswl

Speculative

Sarah Guan @🏡 @Sarah_Guan · Apr 29

#MSWL: Speculative novels that feel like poetry, that call to mind specific poems, without being entirely in verse. Specific poets I like for these purposes: Tennyson, Donne, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Langston Hughes, Omar Khayyam, Wallace Stevens (There are more! Surprise me!)

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Apr 15

#MSWL - Anything that feels high concept and cinematic in YA, whether it’s sci-fi, fantasy, or contemporary with a speculative twist. Stories with big “what if” premises.

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Apr 15

#MSWL - Smart, commercial YA thrillers & mysteries! Think Tiffany Jackson, Karen McManus, E. Lockhart. Also, YA horror! I’d love something like MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, with a good speculative twist.
