Am I too late for #MSWL Day? I’m looking for laugh-out-loud MG with a great ‘voicey’ protagonist! Also fab twisty mysteries in MG. And a swoony romance/love story in YA, especially (but not exclusively) LGBTQIA please! See my profile & sub guidelines at skylark-literary.com

Alex Arnold @alexyarnold · Sep 13

A smarty, juicy rom com; would especially like to read a queer rom com #MSWL

I’m always looking for #YA contemporary romcoms written by diverse authors that feature POC and LGBTQ+ characters. The lighter and fluffier, the better! #MSWL

I'm still dying for a Count of Monte Cristo retelling. Genderbend it. LGBTQ it. Make it contemporary. Or fantasy. I'm down for it! #mswl

I really want a ballet book in NA contemp romance where both love interests are dancers in the same company - even better if they are rivals of some sort
this can be f/f, m/m, or m/f

If everyone in your book is queer, I want to see it #MSWL

Lydia Sharp @lydia_sharp · Sep 12

still on YA:
I want a queer mermaid book
I want a queer pirate book
both of those in one? yes that too
better yet - make it sci-fi - space pirates and space mermaids and they're all queer

I have a short break now between the close of a meeting and the start of a new edit so here is a quick thread of my current #MSWL 😊
Happy MSWL Day!
I am an editor for a small romance publisher. We accept submissions from authors and agents. Here is what I want to see more of:

my main interest is YA - all genres - I'm open to nearly *anything* in YA
I'd like to see more:
*diverse lead characters and a range of diversity rep
*more queer characters in sci-fi and fantasy especially
*stories that explore uncommon places and themes

24/7/365 I welcome #ownvoices. I welcome all and would especially love stories by&about people of color, with disabilities (esp invisible), who have mental illness, who are LGBTQ, or who are economically disadvantaged #MSWL #wndb

Hannah Fergesen @HannahFergesen · Sep 12

Been asking for a fun YA f/f rom com for a long time now and I still want it. Sweet, salty, unique. I want my cinnamon rolls in love! #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 12

I wanna touch on contemporary romance real quick. I love cute awkwardness. I want gut-wrenching love (think Just One Day by @gayleforman). I need LGBTQ+ that isn't just "coming out" or "issue-driven". If you give me Andy Anderson, I'll love you forever #MSWL

MARIA @msmariavicente · Sep 12

Random topics & things I’m into (idk it might help???): animal rights / boy bands / comics / crows / design / the environment / friendship / ghosts / LGBTQ+ characters / mental health / pop music / teen dramas / Zelda / the 90s. #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 12

Give me badass females and POC in your historical! Big plus if it's LGBTQ+ #MSWL just don't give me Shakespeare, Henry VIII, or Greek gods - a little worn out on WWII, as well, unless it has a totally new POV

Michelle Richter📚 @Michrichter1 · Sep 12

I would love to see more crime fiction from writers of color and LGBT writers in the world and in my inbox. If the main characters are also POC/LGBT, even better. #MSWL

Jessica Mileo @JessicaMileo · Sep 12

#MSWL When I open up my queries again, I want the fluffiest most uwu romance / contemporary (adult or children's) fiction with PoC and/or queer protagonists (Not secondary characters fitting the bill and no one is allowed to die!)

Samantha Wekstein @SWekstein · Sep 12

8. As always, I'm interested in diverse, queer, own voices, and feminist narratives. #mswl
