bog bodies, the age of sail, westerns (centering BIPOC and/or queer characters only please), stories about sports teams (that are maybe haunted??), gothic romances, medieval pilgrimages and any combination thereof!
emmy, purveyor of spines @emmy_of_spines8: I really, really want a western with a horse-girl-esque twist. Westerns are having a moment, I grew up riding and surrounded by equestrian culture, and I would love to see something fresh and progressive...
...by a rural author with something interesting and new to say. Think: Heresy, by Melissa Lenhardt; Outlawed, by Anna North.

Brenna “ACAB” English✨Loeb @benglishhhHello sweet writers! I will be closing to queries at the end of the month, so if you were planning on submitting to me (via query manager, I delete things that come into my inbox unrequested) this is your metaphorical five minute warning!
I'll be updating this thread over the next few days with #mswl thoughts and ideas as they occur to me, and I'll start with saying that if you have a western, especially a historical one featuring queer and/or BIPOC characters, please hit me up!
#MSWL Give me Space Western SFF, lawless new frontiers, Serendipity, Firefly-esque, but with African American space cowboys who mean business written by POC authors! Cinematic in scope, make me swoon, make me sit up, take notice, stay up all night reading! bit.ly/3lsXobY

Stephanie Winter @readbystephanieHey Wynonna Earp fans, serious question time for the new season...
But also, a mg Wynonna Earp sff western is for sure on my #MSWL
My most wanted wishlist:
Inspirational romantic suspense (55k words & 85-100K words)
Inspirational historical romance (70k words, would love to see a regency + Westerns and 85-100k words)
Amish (contemporary romance and romantic suspense 55k words)
At the weekend I had a chat with someone about the Western they are writing, and woke up this morning wanting to read a UK western about drovers coming up against enclosure. Is there such a thing? I have vague memories of Drovers' Gold on the telly #mswl
For #MSWL in horror
- Creepy Southern/Western Americana or non-Western world Gothic
- horror that interrogates sociopolitical fears
- anything you can see Bruce Campbell starring in
- no exploitative violence against femmes and POC pls
