Rebecca F. Kuang @kuangrfi learned about nüshu, a Chinese script that only women could write and understand, a long time ago but ran across it again in a reading today and now i can't stop thinking about it. where's the SFF treatment of this? the possibilities!
nüshu magic—ink witches sending spells and messages through hidden script that changes on the page, empires crumbling on the strength of a carefully wrought character, sworn sisters taking vengeance for their own—I want every iteration #MSWL

I'd love a witchy romance! What happens if you spell the wrong guy? What happens after the spell wears off? What happens if it never does? Better have back up with this book, my friends. (Open to subs 6.1.19!) #mswl
I love YA fantasy and I’m looking for diverse stories and #ownvoices here. Where are the Latinx witches and kingdoms? Take me to places based off of cultures like my own, and not like my own. I like contemp, court intrigue, plot twists and tropes (and spins on tropes too) #MSWL
Chelsey Emmelhainz @CKEmmelhainzMy current #MSWL:
- toxic female friendships
- spooky suspense (maybe w/ supernatural/horror bent)
- suspense featuring cults and witches (a la, THE CRAFT)
- family dysfunction + messed up secrets
- female serial killers
It appears my #MSWL list is evergreen, because I'm definitely still hunting for all these elements in my mystery/suspense/women's fiction submissions...
It's January 15 & that means I'm now open to queries again -- and hungry to find some new talent for the new year! Send me your lyrical MG fantasy, your heartfelt MG contemp, your weird and/or witchy YA, your adult or YA romcoms, and anything else amazing. #mswl
Andrea Walker @_AndreaWalker_I’d love a #PB that’s a lyrical exploration of the stars, moon, and/or Mars.
A #MG at space camp.
Or #YA Historical in a town close to the Kennedy Space Center during the Apollo program.
Nonfiction- anything and everything space
#MSWL for 2019
In YA, I’m dying for a
- twisty psychological thriller
- dark sister story
- glimmering fantasy that’s grounded in reality
- contemporary witch story
- historical fantasy
I’m open to most things in YA, so if you think we’d be a good fit, query the agency! #MSWL
Henrietta Rose-Innes🎲 @HenriettaRISealed flask containing a witch, c 1850. Obtained from old woman in village near Hove, Sussex, around 1915. She remarked: "They do say there be a witch trapped in it, and if you let un out there'll be a peck 'o trouble."
