OwnVoices

Jessica Mileo @JessicaMileo · Apr 3

I'm so happy to be absolutely stuffed to the gills with fantasy/magic on my list, so please send me your contemp YA #ownvoice by WoC about WoC! #MSWL

#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.

A #mswl reminder: I'm always looking for more WoC / #OwnVoices writers in my inbox!

Still looking / always looking for WoC / #OwnVoices authors in my slush pile. #MSWL I'm really in the mood for a fluffy contemporary YA or Women's Fiction and craft related NF

I would LOVE a m/m teen romance featuring a #Intercultural #Latinx couple where friends become more like Benny & Nina do in #InTheHeights #MSWL Better if it's #OwnVoices too! pin.it/xognnfo7vze34k

(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

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Mar 15

I am scouring my inbox for psychological fiction, the next Big Little Lies, & more #ownvoices and #diversebooks #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Mar 13

I am definitely looking for more psychological suspense/thrillers. I'd really love more #diversebooks #ownvoices in that genre #mswl

All joking aside, I never actually wanted to make out with a person's voice until I heard Brendon Urie sing for the first time. Would love an #ownvoices retelling of Cyrano de Bergerac with three cute boys and a high school musical. #MSWL #LGBT

Random #MSWL I’m putting out into the universe: I would love a manuscript that tackles the disappearances of Native American girls and women, a la the movie Wind River. YA or Adult, #ownvoices. Ok universe...let’s make it happen. 🤞🏽

I'm still looking for this book. It doesn't have to be set in America, or even our world. What I'm really after is a book that engages with the abuses perpetrated against indigenous people, in particular women, and the colonizer's legacy of violence and oppression. #mswl

Ben Grange @BLGrange · Mar 9

Middle grade fantasy or contemporary Island (#ownvoices) stories a la Whale Rider. #MSWL

Alex Slater @abuckslater · Mar 8

Looking for weird #YA in #pitmad today...I want something surreal like FX's Atlanta, or A.S. King's 'Still Life with Tornado.' Can't really figure out what it is yourself? #Ownvoices writer? Query me. #MSWL

#MSWL would love to see more submissions #ownvoices Indigenous/First Nations stories rich in culture and history.

#MSWL literally any sports movie with a female MC, but she ends up with a female teammate or rival instead of whatever dude is around. #YA Bend it Like Beckham, Whip It, Cutting Edge, Mighty Ducks, Stick It, etc. #DvPit #ownvoices

#MSWL MG sports themed MS with culturally diverse characters. Does not have to be a U.S. setting--I'd love to see the project set in Latin America, Caribbean, Central America, #ownvoices Authors.

Today seems like a really good day to remind the twitterverse that stories by disabled authors, especially about disabled people, are top of my #MSWL Guidelines here: carinapress.com/blog/submissio… #actuallydisabled #ownvoices #wndb
