-More nonfiction in MG and YA, esp science, art, history, etc. NF graphic novels are great here too.
-I'd love to see more mysteries, in MG, YA, and adult. I'm really into Veronica Speedwell and Veronica Mars.
-More intergenerational stories in MG, YA, and SFF. #MSWL
-More graphic novels, especially queer OGNs. I grew up reading Calvin and Hobbes and Amar Chitra Catha, but I got back into comics through queer stories.
I <3 Steven Universe, She-Ra, THE PRINCE & THE DRESSMAKER, NIMONA, LAURA DEAN KEEPS BREAKING UP WITH ME, & many others #MSWL
-More underrepresented creators, esp creators of color and disabled creators, telling #ownvoices and stories from the margins that need to be shared. #MSWL
-More stories that show the range of experiences of black and brown people, especially in MG and YA.
Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie🎉🎉The news is out! 🎉🎉
I've been promoted to agent!!!
Big huge thank you to Jennifer and @JDLitAgency for their support! pic.twitter.com/RWM9TOUHxQ
To celebrate my promotion, I'm updating my #MSWL:
-more queer stories, especially those outside the femme/masc duality. Butch/butch romances! More trans and non-binary characters! Queerness not as a conflict! Not just white queers!
Court @courtdanee2I wanna write a movie where a Black woman in her 40s/50s/60s discovers she has supernatural abilities and uses them to exact revenge on anyone who has ever gotten on her last nerve.
Yes, this please. 100% would read. #mswl
Katherine Locke @BibliogatoAnd how does #DiverseJewishKidLit play into #futureofJewishbooks? I'd like to see more books by Jews of color, more books by observant Jews published in the mainstream, and more books about Jews. In general. Where we aren't dying. *extremely pointed look at YA publishing*
Yes please #mswl
Rebecca Mix (hiatus! yes, a real one.) @rebeccarmixsomeone write me a book about a sex-repulsed ace girl who keeps making pacts with witches and demons and fae, promising them her firstborn for awesome spells and shit, because jokes on them she's NEVER HAVING KIDS and the shenanigans that follow when they all figure it out
Yeah, I want to read this #MSWL

Kaye Dreams of Fluffy Romcoms @gildedspineThis is your Wednesday reminder that if you are a marginalized author writing a magical school, I AM SO HERE FOR IT AND YOU. Write it. Please.
Also, there are no limits to writing magical schools with different functions, experiences and value. Do not cancel yourself out.
Yes please! #MSWL
Turing Police @turing_policeis there an sf story where the richest people flee to space because the planet is going to die but end up entombed in a slowly dying mars habitat as they watch people successfully undo the damage they caused and rebuild civilization back on earth
I want to read this #MSWL
Preeti Chhibber @runwithskizzersIf I was an agent I think something that would be on the #mswl would be a Pirates of the Caribbean style YA except it's pirates from colonized lands going after the British Empire (@ericsmithrocks plz find this book and rep it thank you) pic.twitter.com/ge9r0SeIUA
Hell yeah, I'm into it. #MSWL

YA FicShenwei (they/them) | 張軒瑋 @theshennersObviously interracial relationships don't end racism but tbh I would really love more MG/YA with interracial friendships & romances that don't involve white ppl
More of my friends growing up were POC than not even though (or possibly because?) I lived in very white areas
