Are You Using #MSWL? You Should Be

If you’re a writer looking for an agent, check out the Manuscript Wish List (#MSWL) on Twitter. It’s a great resource where agents post exactly what they’re looking for–sometimes with great specificity.

There are tons of requests for YA manuscripts, which shouldn’t surprise me given the genre’s popularity. But if you aren’t writing YA, sometimes it feels like that’s all anyone wants.

That’s why another excellent option is the Manuscript Wish List website, which lets you search agent postings by genre–a great feature! I used it to search for agents looking for historical fiction.

Querying agents is time-consuming, and blind queries are mostly a waste of your and the agent’s time. The Manuscript Wish List gives us writers a better way to target agents who might be receptive to our work.

Have you ever used #MSWL? If so, what’s your experience?

  1. Love this! I immediately went to Twitter and over stimulated myself with all the info at #MSWL. I almost started hyperventilating, but in a good way. Thank you so much for sharing. I, too, am just at the beginning with some manuscripts in process. Learning all I can and this helps!
