Lina Langlee @LinaLangleeSeeing a lot of 'timely' manuscripts (read 'dystopian') in our submissions inbox when all I want is ESCAPISM.
I want your fluffy romances, the book equivalent of a Bollywood film, feel-good cosy stuff with a great hook that make you WANT to stay in.
Since I am still getting some traction for this #mswl I should mention that I have recently moved agencies to The North Literary Agency. More about what I am looking for here: thenorthlitagency.com/our-friends-in…
I've reopened again to queries! Send me your stories. Check out #MSWL for what I most want to see right now. Sky's the limit! And if you need a feel for what my books look like, check out my pinterest boards for books I rep: pinterest.com/nataschamorris…
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeLet's do a thread of picture books that I recently read and loved and symbolize my brand for picture book.
So rather than do a PB #MSWL ahead of reopening today, let's just retweet a thread of great picture books.
Publishing is an industry that has always had the power to amplify Black voices and we need to do better. I want to do better. Agents, please keep me in mind when you sign up some these stellar and important voices because I want to hear them.
Talia Benamy @taliabenamyPublishing is notoriously white, and it's on those of us with our feet in the door to open that door wider for everyone else. So for the month of June, I'm opening myself up to queries from Black children's book writers and artists. Please, DM them my way. #BlackLivesMatter
Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRothMy consultation spots for Black #kidlit authors are now full. But I will add more every month (no end date planned) and post the links when available. Meanwhile, I'm always happy to chat on Twitter for general questions. elana.me/consultations
And not to conflate things, I have never stopped looking for Black voices to add to my list of authors. If you write fun, escapist stories for MG or YA, I'm here! Currently hungry for rom-coms and light fantasy, but open to an adventure. elana.me/wish-list #mswl

I'm so grateful to @VeronicaForand for letting me know about an RWA snafu! 3 Seas was vetted by RWA in 2001 but somehow we fell off the approved agent list. All is well and we're listed again. We are 100% looking for new romance writers in all genres. Pls send Amish, too! #MSWL
