It's almost Purim! Who's going to send me a YA retelling of the Book of Esther (and my girl Vashti)? Perhaps a little f/f/ queer? Definitely feminist though and #ownvoices Jewish. #MSWL

Replying to @LindaEpstein

For anyone who doesn't already know me, let me state loud & clear once again: Please send me your #BIPOC #LGBTQ+ #ownvoices #middlegrade & #YoungAdult manuscripts! Look at what I'm asking for in my other #MSWL tweets to see if we'd be a good match. (Ah! So many hashtags!)

I'd love a realistic contemporary #MG adventure featuring African American kids. Like, I REALLY want to read that. Something fun & lighthearted & exciting! #ownvoices #MSWL

Linda ~washing hands~ Epstein @LindaEpstein · 19 Mar 2019

When I open in April, as always, I encourage #ownvoices submissions of YA and MG by #POC and #LGBTQ+ I will not be open to picture book submissions. #MSWL

Linda ~washing hands~ Epstein @LindaEpstein · 13 Feb 2019

I've got a #mswl! I'd LOVE to see a #middlegrade or #youngadult novel w/POC Jewish characters, preferably by an #ownvoices author. Although I'm not currently open to submissions I am open for that. Use my submission guidelines emeraldcityliterary.com/lindaepstein/ & ignore the auto response.

Linda ~washing hands~ Epstein @LindaEpstein · 26 Oct 2018

REMINDER: I'll be closed to queries after midnight EST October 31st. I'm currently open only to #YA by #ownvoices & #POC authors & I'm looking for realistic contemporary; magical realism; SciFi; speculative fiction; romantic; feminist; or Jewish. #mswl #WeNeedDiverseBooks

Linda ~washing hands~ Epstein @LindaEpstein · 29 Sep 2018

BUT, if you've got something in the same vein as say... Children of Blood and Bone! Or like... Six of Crows! I'M IN. I want to see that! #ownvoices #POC #mswl

Just so you all know though, in general I usually steer clear of Holocaust stories and/or other stories set during WW2. Shanghai Ghetto would be an exception for me. #ownvoices #MSWL

Linda ~washing hands~ Epstein @LindaEpstein · 29 Sep 2018

Also, I know this is very specific, but I'm dying for a YA set in the Jewish ghetto in WW2 Shanghai. I've literally been thinking about this for years...If it's a love story, even better! #ownvoices #MSWL

I updated my #mswl page to give a sense of what I've been reading for my own pleasure... go take a look! manuscriptwishlist.com

Some things I'd love to see come in to my inbox: How about a nice YA beach read? Something romantic & swoony without being sexist, misogynistic, stereotyping, etc... Something fun & funny & sexy! #ownvoices @POC #MSWL

Linda ~washing hands~ Epstein @LindaEpstein · 9 Jan 2018

I'd REALLY like submissions by #POC writing #ownvoices stories. Realistic contemporary #middlegrade & #YoungAdult manuscripts. I want love stories & coming of age stories & stories about kids & their dogs. I want stories about the awkwardness of puberty & 1st kisses. #MSWL

Linda ~washing hands~ Epstein @LindaEpstein · 30 Jun 2016

Yearning for a voice-y solidly MG story with a non-white main character in a non-urban setting. #ownvoices #mswl

Linda ~washing hands~ Epstein @LindaEpstein · 19 Apr 2016

#mswl I would <3 a realistic contemporary middle grade graphic novel by/about a #poc #ownvoices Just saying. Magical realism ok, too.
