#MSWL Cyberpunk from a non-white perspective, preferred #ownvoices

Across everything, Diversity is a huge priority for me and @bookendslit. I’d love to see any type of #Ownvoices across all of these genres. #MSWL

BUT, if you've got something in the same vein as say... Children of Blood and Bone! Or like... Six of Crows! I'M IN. I want to see that! #ownvoices #POC #mswl

Just so you all know though, in general I usually steer clear of Holocaust stories and/or other stories set during WW2. Shanghai Ghetto would be an exception for me. #ownvoices #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · Sep 29

Also, I know this is very specific, but I'm dying for a YA set in the Jewish ghetto in WW2 Shanghai. I've literally been thinking about this for years...If it's a love story, even better! #ownvoices #MSWL

I updated my #mswl page to give a sense of what I've been reading for my own pleasure... go take a look! manuscriptwishlist.com

Some things I'd love to see come in to my inbox: How about a nice YA beach read? Something romantic & swoony without being sexist, misogynistic, stereotyping, etc... Something fun & funny & sexy! #ownvoices @POC #MSWL

#MSWL As far as retellings go, I'd love to see more historicals, fantasies, urban fantasies, or paranormal based on Aztec myths and legends. Preferably #ownvoices please.

I'd love to find a multi-generational story that completely pulls you. Something that really highlights the complexity of family relationships—all the love and crazy. #a #wf #ownvoices #MSWL

ZR/Zabé Ellor @ZREllor · Sep 24

Specific #ownvoices #MSWL I’d love to see: a YA historical retelling of SOME LIKE IT HOT about a teen trans girl discovering her identity when she joins an all-girls musical group to escape vengeful mobsters

#MSWL I'm looking for something I've never seen before primarily adult or YA in fantasy, romance, historical, suspense, mystery #ownvoices

Cheryl B. Klein @chavelaque · Sep 12

Coming late to #MSWL Day: Educational PBs that read like trade ones; character-driven MG; truth-telling YA; all of it diverse; #ownvoices preferred.

I’m seeking #MG and #YA that explores the mythology and folklore of cultures from around the world by #ownvoices writers. Would love to see this in a graphic novel! #MSWL
