WRITERS! New #MSWL w/ a few changes. Still looking for Adult NF (lifestyle, parenting, sports, current events, etc) and YA/MG/PB, but expanding YA/MG to fantasy and still including dystopian/sci-fi/horror/contemporary. Make me laugh, make me sob! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/shari-maurer/

I just watched Challengers and I don’t know how to feel but I think it would be really good in book format
- dual/multiple timelines
- competitive sports
- love triangles
- morally grey MC

BIG #MSWL item for me:

Upmarket fiction, #ownvoices #Indigenous stories that feature sports. Think Olympics, long-distance running, rock-climbing, snow sports, mountaineering, etc.

Ideally with strong character arcs and a commercially appealing external plot.

I recently finished a novel set in the world of sports. Any tips for finding agents who’d be interested in sports fiction?

Oh gosh, aside from doing a search for #MSWL , I’m not sure. I’m actively searching for (preferably) a high-level gymnast or diver who is forced to give up their sport due to extenuating circumstances and how they cope. But I’d be open to other sports.

#MSWL : sports romances! Especially queer and/or BIPOC.
I was hugely into sports as a kid and am specifically looking for super fun rom-coms in this area that'll give you all the feels! (No preference on which sports are featured!) Adult, New Adult, and YA welcome.

I updated my #MSWL page for the first time in... a decade? And I'm looking forward to reading some great submissions in 2024.

Agents, among other things, I'd love to find a feel-good underdog sports story to weep over and/or edit. Hit me up! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/katherine-harrison/

Taking the opportunity to add one more desire to my #MSWL I’d love to see a good contemporary romance with a hot sports guy. Steamy? Sure! If you have it, I’d love to see it. #amquerying #amediting #WriterCommunity #writers #ContemporaryRomance
