& my #MSWL currently looks a little like this: #ownvoices LGBT & mental illness, where those aspects aren't necessarily the main plotlines.

Alex Arnold @alexyarnold · 30 Jun 2016

Diverse, underrepresented stories and perspectives from #OwnVoices #MSWL

jennifer "v spooky scientist" laughran @literaticat · 30 Jun 2016

Surprising MG and YA that breaks new ground, POVs that are under-represented, particularly from #OwnVoices creators. #MSWL

Michelle Witte @michellewitte · 30 Jun 2016

I always forget to mention that I want ms with diverse characters and authors, especially #ownvoices. It's like a no-brainer for me. #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 30 Jun 2016

#MSWL more books that deal with collective trauma. Especially transgenerationally. #SFF #YA #C #ownvoices

Laura Zats @LZats · 30 Jun 2016

Feminism and diversity in all forms, especially from #ownvoices #MSWL

Linda (not very spooky) Epstein @LindaEpstein · 30 Jun 2016

Yearning for a voice-y solidly MG story with a non-white main character in a non-urban setting. #ownvoices #mswl

Lauren E. MacLeod @Lauren_MacLeod · 30 Jun 2016

And I’m always looking for QUILTBAG YA or MG, especially #ownvoices. #MSWL

While I wait for this lunch meeting to start: I want all the epic YA fantasy with intersectional diversity and #ownvoices. #MSWL

Caitie Flum @caitief · 30 Jun 2016

YA/MG with intersectional diversity, especially w/ characters with disabilities, #ownvoices make me extra happy. All genres #MSWL

Jennifer Ung @JenPanda · 30 Jun 2016

my perennial #mswl: funny, sad, and emotionally true contemporary YA starring POC protagonists, written by #ownvoices

Serene @serenemaria · 30 Jun 2016

But a few things I always like: strong women, #ownvoices, #POC, #LGBTQ+; I want underrepresented voices to just be represented #MSWL (3/3)

Caitlin McDonald @literallycait · 30 Jun 2016

Also when you're sending me diverse queries, I love to know if they are #ownvoices! That is always a plus in my book. #MSWL

Caitie Flum @caitief · 30 Jun 2016

❀️ πŸ’› πŸ’š πŸ’™ πŸ’œ all genres - YA contemp, YA SFF, book club, romance, thrillers, historical fiction, ALL OF IT. Especially #ownvoices #MSWL

T.S. Ferguson @TeeEss · 30 Jun 2016

An #ownvoices high fantasy set in or inspired by a non-white culture (i.e. set in an African analog world, instead of medieval Europe) #MSWL
