I would like more #SFF from scientists please. I love it when somebody's work informs their writing. #MSWL

In post-election SFF, many of us are worried that "diverse stories" is no longer as shiny as specifically "resist fascism!" stories.

This thread has been on my mind lately - I for one would love some feel-good #SFF from authors from underrepresenteā€¦ https://t.co/VVMN8ugWQb

Happy #MSWL day! I am seeking #SFF and #NF by marginalised/underrepresented authors and I keep my wish list here: https://t.co/IzTXDL8EWk

More fantasy worlds where females aren't oppressed. Why does this prejudice still show up in virtually every time and universe? #RBWL

Still getting a lot of queries through #mswl that don't mention this post https://t.co/WVvDD0vfbG. Pls read before querying me this summer!

Also historical fiction by Indigenous writers! #mswl #postscript #editbuttonpls

Nonfiction writer friends: I can only find a few essays, not a book, about the human computers (women) of NASA. *That* is an opportunity!

Marginalised voices writing space opera, steampunk, solarpunk, literary fantasy, folktale retellings and other fun SFF. #mswl

Lydia Moed @LydiaMoed · Feb 11 2016

I would LOVE some #ownvoices historical fiction/historical fantasy set anywhere that is not Western Europe. #MG , #YA , #A all accepted. #mswl

Areas covered by my non-fiction clients: alcohol, Shakespeare, cephalopods. Still open to narrative non-fiction on most other topics. #mswl

Green ball gowns tinted with arsenic. Top hats made of mercury. Flammable crinoline. https://t.co/feajVmqbdG https://t.co/1urNtnfJfU

This is the kind of book I'd like on my non-fiction list. More weird, dark, quirky history proposals please! #mswl https://t.co/lKpXaatkbb

Seriously, give me a diverse cast of women carrying out a heist and I'll see that movie 3 or 4 times at a minimum

I have the same thing but with books. #mswl https://t.co/ULNzl6dMmd
