Hannah Fergesen @HannahFergesenIt's #MSWL day! Here are some specific things I'd love to get. I'm closed to queries currently but reopen in October, so tuck these in your back pocket for that day. Here we go!
Forever on my #MSWL: stories about women/girls/feminine folx in history. I'm personally tired of WWII, Vikings, the sixties - but there are SO MANY stories from all across history to choose from. I do a podcast about them for this very reason.
Time for some #mswl tweets! Here are just some of the things I'm looking for right now.
In general, I rep adult mystery, romance, women's fiction, some SF/F, and upmarket projects, and love to see historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction.
Carlisle Webber @carliebeth#MSWL day! To start I’m on the lookout for high-concept MG, YA, and adult fiction. More on what that means here: en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-conc…
Within that realm, I’m looking for pop fiction, contemporary, suspense, mystery, thriller, horror, women’s fiction #mswl
Ok- for my #MSWL I want fun, fresh, smart, feminist Commercial/Upmarket WF, out of the box MG that makes me want to be a kid again, unique and diverse Romance voices, and an edge of your seat YA Thriller.
I also want to add that I'm open to all kinds of historical fic--thrillers, fantasy, mysteries, women's fic, YA, etc, etc. I JUST LOVE BEING IN A DIFFERENT TIME PERIOD. #mswl

It's #MSWL day! Seeking high-concept romantic comedies, YAs with some mystery, WF not about grief or divorce, psych Thrillers with great twists. Love fierce women, humor, intelligent characters, banter/quick witted dialogue. Submit 3 chaps + synopsis to QueryMe.Online/OTLA
Speaking of nonfiction for young people, query me with:
--Deeply reported narrative of historical events
--Bios of underappreciated historical women or POC
--Self help from columnist of mainstream publication or popular blog
Chiming in to share my #MSWL: Adult Fiction (sry no YA etc.) #OwnVoices #RomComs #LGBT+ #SciFi #Fantasy #WomensFic #Romance
I’d love to have a Diverse RomCom in the #LGBT+ space, add a dog or cat to a WF or RomCom & 😍
It's #MSWL day. Topping my list is commercial women’s fiction--particularly #ownvoices contemporaries; mother/daughter, sisters, or best friends stories for women in their 30s or 40s. Romance isn't necessary though I do love romance.
Norma @normajeanesaysIf I ever got a romance/women's fiction like Jane the Virgin/Ugly Betty, I'd die with happiness. #R #CR #WF #MSWL pic.twitter.com/YKaTAMA6nh
It's been over 2 years for this one, and I have a field of crickets in my inbox too. #MSWL
#MSWL I am always looking for a strong Cozy Mystery with a female protagonist, 70-90K words with a strong hook. I am also looking for Amish Romances, Romantic Suspense, Women's Fiction, Psychological Suspense, Middle Reader Mysteries, Historical Romances, Historical Mysteries.
And I'm always looking for: own voices stories in pb, mg, and ya – would love to see more neurodiverse, LGBT+ and/or stories from people (particularly women) of color. Intersectional stories always welcome! #mswl
