Oh, don't mind me, just my weekly plea for more diverse historical romance. kthx #mswl

You know what I'm not seeing enough of? I'm not seeing enough diverse, #ownvoices psychological suspense. Give me something other than the white urban/suburban couple, please. #MSWL

Most of all, MOST OF ALL, if you're worried your character is not the usual star of a sci-fi fantasy because of elements of diversity (color, religion, LGBTQ+, neurodiversity, disability) QUERY ME PLZ plz plz plz plz! #MSWL

I love certain messages in PBs and am always seeking LGBTQ+ diverse & neurodiverse voices in PBs. But remember: story needs to be written for KIDS who read those books, not the parents/adults, in order for the message to be absorbed. Make it fun AND informative. #querytip #MSWL

#MSWL I am DYING for Historical Fiction & Historical Fantasy featuring POC, females in male-dominated industry, LGBTQ+. Also looking for settings other than the overplayed American/European countries

#MSWL : women, diversity, and #ownvoices in sci fi.
Also desperately in need of a fantasy that takes me to an unexpected, far off land. Preferably with LGBTQ+ elements.

I love rom-coms and would love to see more projects w/ a great voice and a diverse cast in my inbox #MSWL #A

I follow lots of body-positive Instagram accounts & self-made makeup/style experts who are not white, who have a disability, etc. Would love to see a WF title (or romance) with these sorts of elements. #mswl

#MSWL call for diverse mysteries like Kellye Garrett's Detective by Day, Tina Kashian's Kebab Kitchen, and Vivien Chien's Noodle Shop Mystery series.

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Mar 25

POC in Space,
Subverting/Twisting Tropes, Murder Mystery, Witty Banter, Revenge. That's today's random #MSWL

#MSWL for picture books. This is the diversity and fun books I NEED more of. @JessieSima can do no wrong and this is my gold standard now for PBs.

We need more diverse children's historical fiction. Because history.

🙋🏼🙋🏼🙋🏼 #MSWL & watch for THE WIND CALLED MY NAME and ALL THE STARS DENIED from @tubooks this fall!

Wishing for some stunning epic diverse Fantasy and SciFi to appear in my inbox. Bring me retold fairy tales like we’ve never seen them, and ALL the futurisms. Anyone got any? #MSWL

Vicki Lame @thedaysbetween · Mar 22

#MSWL a totally delicious YA romantic comedy that is diverse; still trying to find my perfect Paris novel (YA or adult); a historical YA mystery (think Jennifer Donnelly's These Shallow Graves); magical realism 4-ever

(This is why so much advice to writers is read, read, read: you can only see what's new if you already know what's old) #MSWL #querytip #amquerying

As a reminder, for fiction & NF I like: #ownvoices; campus novels; narratives featuring chronic illness, disability, nonbinary, queer characters; gentrification from POC perspectives; complications caused by class differences; books that make me think & laugh #MSWL #amquerying

Plot points I'd love to see #MSWL -- trapped in the wilderness, mom/school/PTO type stories, set in Alaska, magical food & always #ownvoices #diversebooks
