Now let's all submit a bunch of stories about gay black boys to every lit journal, agent, and editor you know. Okay. Go.

I've heard 2 #AWP17 YA panelists say editors don't allow couples w/ 2 black teens. Fellow eds, if you're saying this: REALLY? Ugh. STOP.
This is bull. I would like couples with 2 black teens please. #MSWL https://t.co/vhWaJDbJvq

Books (in my categories) about food. Can you tell it's almost lunch time? #MSWL
Do you have historical YA, romance, or SFF? Is it set in a place/time not often written about? #MSWL
MG and YA horror. Scare me! #MSWL
I'm a sucker for poignant contemporary MG/YA that's also really funny. #MSWL
#blackgirlmagic . Literally. Figuratively. Don't Care. #MSWL
Contemporary books with a strong sense of place. I love the setting to be almost its own character! #MSWL
Fantasy adventures with slow-burn romance and ALL the sexual tension #MSWL
YA and MG characters with specific and varied enthusiasms, Got a kid who is nuts about bees? Chemistry? A little-known Dutch painter? #MSWL
SFF with worldbuilding with highly logical and fresh elements that shape who your character is #MSWL
Enemies-to-lovers romance. #MSWL
Literary F and SF. Cinematic action/adventure SF. #MSWL
Give me complex, sympathetic villains. Heroes who aren't necessarily good. MCs who roll with the punches but aren't happy about it #MSWL
YA inspired by the DAPL issue. Black Lives Matters. PP. #MSWL
Is your book (especially YA) about social justice, protesting, and movements? #MSWL
Steamy romance with verbal consent, and a twist on the normal dynamic. DO you have a lady billionaire and her male secretary? #MSWL
Geeky/nerdy characters. #MSWL
