Queer writers of color, this white cis gay man sez, LET'S DO THIS. #mswl

My kids are Chinese American. My son, in particular, doesn’t often see himself reflected in the books he reads. I’d love to see more #ownvoices MG books featuring male Asian American characters. #MSWL #askUpstart

I'm now open to submissions! Looking for YA & adult sci-fi, fantasy, and historical fiction, especially #ownvoices/queer/feminist stories and graphic novels for all ages and across genres.

Send your query letter + first 5 pages to: tkawar at icmpartners dot com. #MSWL

Hey there! Consider this your periodic reminder that I am always open to diverse historical romance projects, and am especially interested in #ownvoices. Send 'em, send 'em! #mswl

Jessica Mileo @JessicaMileo · Jul 27

Also while I'm thinking of #MSWL - MORE GRAPHIC NOVELS PLEASE, preferably #ownvoices memoirs or stories

Jessica Mileo @JessicaMileo · Jul 27

And as always--in every category--I'm looking for more diverse voices! I love seeing submission from marginalized writers--and you don't have to writing #ownvoices. I want to help make this industry more inclusive, so please feel welcome. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jul 20

I still want #ownvoices set outside the US of all types, but I'm (at least for now) especially interested in fish out of water #ownvoices which allows the reader to see it through the eyes of an outsider who has been let inside. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jul 20

Two of my top books for 2018 so far are #ownvoices set in countries outside the US (Singapore & Cuba). These are the types of books I want more of #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jul 19

It's not lost on me that some of my top books of the year are #ownvoices Inspiring me to write up an #MSWL calling for more #ownvoices in my Query inbox: QueryMe.Online/Jessica_Faust

Craving a Heathers-esque dark comedy with psychologically complex characters by an #ownvoices creator. #MSWL #YA

Saritza🇵🇷Hernandez @epubagent · Jul 13

I’d also love to see an #OwnVoices Latinx contemporary romance set in the barrio. Even better if it’s #LGBTQIA as well. #MSWL

Linda Camacho @LindaRandom · Jul 6

Looking for adult romantic comedies, especially #ownvoices ones. Any Native Americans writing them, please send them my way! #mswl

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Jun 29

I'd love to see India #HF. Caste systems. Occupation. Everyday life MG and YA dealt with (and maybe STILL deal with!). Also, #HF Australia, too, (though I'm looking for something lighter there rather than, say, the movie Australia). I'd love aboriginal #ownvoices #HF. #MSWL

Rebecca Brewer @RebeccaTheGeek · Jun 27

Agents, I'm expanding the types of books I'm acquiring! If you have any #ownvoices LGBTQ+ mainstream fiction or memoir books, please send them my way! #MSWL

I was telling my roommate that I hope to get an influx of #ownvoices & #LGBTQ+ queries in my inbox after coming out on twitter the other day.

She looked at me with a shit-eating grin and said: "I think you mean QUEERies"
I told her to go stand in the Pun Shame Corner.
