Harriet Low @litwitlowI’m getting amazing graphic novel and picture book submissions but not enough of them have wide range in body types. Where are the chubby, busty, fat, super tall, skinny-legged, big bellied characters? I want to feel like I’m walking into a room of real people when I open a sub!
THIS!!! So much #mswl. I'm looking!!!
Just so y'all know... I am so very here for the bi rep. Please friggin give me bi love triangles ❤️❤️ #mswl
Anyone have an Escape Room story?? Still dying for one (any age/genre!) #MSWL
medusa @tinykinseyscaleDo a lesbian period drama about two black lesbians who meet and fall in love during the Harlem Renaissance instead of another movie where rich white women look at each other longingly in polite society.
yup yup yup #mswl
Vicky @romancingreadThrowing this interesting history factoid out there, for anyone who would like to write me an f/f blacksmith romance:
In 1851 14 girls were employed as apprentice blacksmiths in England and Wales.*
*That’s in contrast to 15,066 boys. Stats from the census. pic.twitter.com/5uIGIl9V0E
Y'all, I would DIE for this. Please please please write it #MSWL
Becca Podos @RebeccaPodosWho’s going to write and query me an historical f/f or f/nb romance? I want the hopeful, penniless spinster to swoon at the dusty riding boots of the embittered, lonely duchesse #MSWL
(If you’ve got one, btw, you don’t have to wait for my QM to reopen. I want it 👀)
Jess Hernandez’s🦄 BOOK DROPS 1/1/21 @FinkHernandezThing I’d like to read: a gender flipped SANDLOT.
Basically, a group of girls working together to reach a silly, low-stakes goal. Where they can enjoy friendship & childhood without having to smash the patriarchy or worry about boys or body image. A book abt girlhood joy.
Not gonna lie, I've had this #mswl for a while. Doesn't have to be baseball, but the feel. The nostalgia of just kids being kids!
I've noticed some things I always fall for:
HIlariously awkward gay boys
Historical where they brush fingers and is a MOOD
MG where girls like ghosts and frogs and deep convos
Nerdy yet awe-inspiring talents
Still here for witches. Please & thanks.
Especially modern witches. Crystals. Herbs hanging from kitchen ceiling and running a clinic in town with remedies that don't poison you with chemicals.
Maybe solving a murder or two along the way 😉

I would LOVE an LGBTQ+ rom com where they just ARE. They love, they fight, they live.
Give me POC who don't have to justify themselves constantly. They can have their own plot and action and agency and not answer to others.

Paranormal? Give me non-US creatures/legends. I love mermaids, but creepy/dark over Disney. I'm not a huge werewolf fan, and I'm only looking at vamps at the moment if they're unique or an awesome POC perspective. Nothing even remotely Twilight, please!
