Give me LGBTQ+ character–centered submissions that *don't* revolve around their trauma, sadness, or death. 🙏 #MSWL

I want a mythology retelling with a contemporary PNW twist more than I want most things in life. Or a convincing contemporary YA fantasy (magic or monsters!) that really pushes into its setting. #MSWL

Super high up on my #MSWL: a contemporary YA set in a rural PNW high school. I'm dreaming of badass female friendship and/or a protagonist who realizes that her parents' beliefs are not her own.

Winter term at @ooliganpress is upon us, and the Acquisitions team is ready for your queries to blow our minds!

Check our submission guidelines here:

Things high on our #MSWL include YA sci-fi, contemporary fantasy, and unique local history.

Remember that we’re looking for authors and/or stories based in the PNW!

(Still crossing our fingers for an alternate history Oregon Trail with robots or something.)

YA fantasy standalone? Yes please. Dreaming of someday getting a sub as good as this. #MSWL @MarRogerson

I'm obsessed with the snake pouring tea. It's delightful. I want a whole book about it. What is its backstory? What are its dreams? #MSWL 🐍
