I'm in a serious mood for complicated New Adult or WF that has me huddled in a corner SOBBING. Hit me with all your angsty feels and desperate emotion! (But preferably find a way to end happily so I'm not devastated for weeks, thanks.) #MSWL
2. Emotional stories and series ideas specifically geared toward Mahogany original movies, romance or women's fiction. Robyn Carr's Virgin River series on Netflix is a good comp here.

Bryn Donovan @BrynDonovanHey authors and agents! I'm looking to acquire several books for @HallmarkPublish in Sept. We make deals with agents on 3 chapters and a synopsis. Here are a couple of specific things I'm looking for, but I'll have more wishlist items later in the month!
1. Romance or women's fiction with higher stakes than you might expect from us; think Kristin Hannah, but make it Hallmark. Focus on family, friendship, and/or community. Contemporary only, happy ending only.
#MSWL #romancelandia #WritingCommunity
Women's fiction: My interests in wf kind of align with general fiction, but I'd love millennial wf that isn't focused on a woman's romantic relationship, and is more about everything else in their life (some romance ok). If it can make me ugly-cry & snort-laugh, that's a plus :)
@GlamEditor_Girl Latoya would love to see high-concept commercial and upmarket fiction, particularly women's fiction and thriller. I am also open to nonfiction proposals but an established platform is a must! #MSWL #literaryagent #amquerying #WritingCommunity #writers
I'd love to see high concept inspirational fiction for Love Inspired Trade. Though we mainly look for genres like romantic suspense, womens fiction and historical romance and fiction. I'm open to considering others as long as they are inspy. Agented submissions only #MSWL
Hannah Schofield @hannschofieldGood afternoon #amquerying writers! I am BACK (or my submissions inbox is)
As well as my #mswl on the LBA website, you can find out some more about me in this interview I did with the lovely people at @RNAtweets: romanticnovelistsassociation.org/2021/04/ask-an…
I include some pointers about how to catch my eye with your query letter - title; clear, snappy pitch; & comp titles
Want to know what we are looking for? Here is our #MSWL: Women's Fiction, LGBTQ+ Romance & Coming of Age, Stories Featuring Differently Abled Voices, and Stories about Body Positivity and/or Neutrality
I’m interested in seeing WF (w/ a romantic thread) about starting over. Not divorce, but a new direction. They never married because they prioritized career and/or caring for a family member over their own romantic life. Babies aren’t their be-all end-all. #MSWL (sub info pinned)
Hey #AmQuerying writers, I’m closing to queries on June 1 for the summer, but will be open to #MSWL items (see below) through this link: QueryManager.com/AshleyBlake/MS…
✨Queer &/or BIPOC romance (rom com & contemp)
✨Mystery w/ WF (think FINLAY DONOVAN)
#MSWL #A #WomFic: In this genre, I need to you tomake me gasp, cry, or LOL in your opening pages. MAKE me want to turn the page. Make me impatient for your full submission. I love sibling relationships, family secrets, and quirky characters w/funny or serious storylines.
Solomon Georgio @solomongeorgioI once served a table on their first date. While I was pouring wine, the guy said he was a “student of life”. The lady wrote an F on her napkin and passed it to him. I hope that savage is out there thriving
#MSWL I would so love a women’s fiction or rom-com with a heroine like this.
Women's fiction - psychological thrillers (the darker the better) & mystery/suspense. Think Lifetime movies!
Paranormal romance & thrillers/suspense. School settings are a plus. Dark elements are welcomed!
Mara Delgado is lost somewhere @little_mswriterI am actively looking for Latinx voices.
For YA, I would adore a fantasy (or all of them), magical realism and romcoms. I like the light and fluffy in contemporary.
For adult, historical romances, romcoms, WF focused on relationships and magical realism. Commercial fic #MSWL
Kiki @kiananguWomen’s Fiction should be more than middle aged white women rediscovering themselves after a goddamn divorce, Jesus fucking Christ.
my #mswl pretty please (also petition to stop using women’s fiction because exclusionary to non-binary and trans folks ❤️)
#mswl Very interested in receiving submissions from authors who write screenplays, and screenwriters who are also novelists in the genres: small-town romance, holiday romance, beach ready-y women's fiction.
#MSWL alert! I’m always on the hunt for romance and women’s fiction in general but this illustrates what I’m especially hungry for right now. Thanks to @jmcgowanbks for the graphic! Query me at querymanager.com/KimLionetti
