Seriously, writers: if you can write this, this is a serious #MSWL. Must be either MG or YA, could be graphic novel or novel. Or even nonfiction, if you want to tackle the real-world facts of this. #submissions #amwriting #YAlit #MGlit

We're also actively looking for graphic novels for young readers (MG/YA) starring Native & Muslim characters. #MSWL

For example, we love what @arigonstarr & Theo Tso are doing w/ Super Indian & Captain Paiute respectively. Seeking full-length GNs. #MSWL

2.6% by African Americans

The numbers for Native American/First Nations are dismal, as well. Our #MSWL includes MG & YA contemporary & SFF by/abt indigenous ppl.

(I need to update illustrator guidelines w/ graphic novel illustration information, sorry!) #MSWL

Replying to @tubooks

In general, we love MG & YA SFF, mystery & historical fiction that grabs readers & hooks teachers & librarians handing them the books. #MSWL
