Claire Friedman @clairefriedman8Doing my 2023 #mswl wishlist early this year, because Twitter might implode at any second! Here’s a non-exhaustive list of what I’m looking for (in all age ranges!) for 2023:
Upmarket fiction! Anything with a big hook and accessible writing has my name all over it. Does it feel like something your book club would love? Send it my way! Recent faves include LESSONS IN CHEMISTRY, TRUE BIZ, TOMORROWx3, and CARRIE SOTO. The bigger the concept, the better!
Catch-all #mswl: Adult mystery/thrillers, book club/upmarket, women's, historical, & contemporary fiction. Make me laugh and cry, transport me to someone else's life, surprise me. Some faves are here, come join them on my shelf: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/abby…
Queries reopen 12/1!
Accessible literary and upmarket reading group. Beautiful writing with something to say. A novel that digs into an issue or theme and introduces me to nuanced, unforgettable characters, all structured around a plot that keeps me turning the pages. #mswl
#amquerying authors: I'm dying to find the perfect Cosy Fantasy (Comp: T.J. Klune) and/or the nerdiest, puzzle-or footnote-filled upmarket Literary Fantasy (Comp: R.F. Kuang's BABEL). Send similar manuscripts my way! 😍 #MSWL (PS: Animals are a plus! 🐧)
For Adult: I’m also interested in romcoms, fantasy romcoms, and upmarket fiction. I love books set in the South with queer narrators, and I gravitate toward sharp, witty prose. 💖

first, I'm someone who's always been gripped by VOICE, WRITING STYLE, and PROSE. so I'm looking for:
- anything in the book club, upmarket, literary spaces
- lush, poetic writing
- deep and intricate world/lore-building (when applicable)
#MSWL: My adult #fiction list will be smaller but think upmarket #BookClub fiction or domestic suspense--something that will keep me up at night. Really enjoyed Angie Kim's Miracle Creek. Has to feel #contemporary, braiding together issues of social import & identity.
I'm eagerly seeking commercial thrillers, horror, and domestic suspense, as well as upmarket speculative fiction.
In all of these genres, I'm looking for high concept stories with something new to say.
✨Diverse, inclusive adult literary
✨Literary fiction with speculative elements
✨Upmarket/literary fantasy in the vein of Alix Harrow, V.E. Schwab, or Carlos Ruiz Zafón that explores folklores or mythologies.
Bonus points for stories rooted in multi-generational secrets
where oh where is my upmarket/literary retelling of the Tiresias myth from a trans perspective, I will beg for it once a month until it materialises into existence by sheer force of will #mswl
