5/ About 31% of my list is SFF, but I am at an agency with a fantastic track record in literary fiction. I would love to read more upmarket, contemporary, and lit fic by emerging authors, especially (but not exclusively) living in Canada.

4/ Only 26% of my list is KidLit of ANY kind. I'm super picky about what I take on, but I represent PB, chapter, MG, and YA, and would love to see more voicey, character-driven stories in all of these categories in my inbox in the new year.

3/ Only 11% of my list is non-fiction! Please send me your deep-dive journalism, progressive true crime, essay collections, and science books! Think @esmewang's COLLECTED SCHIZOPHRENIAS or @yourewrongabout.

2/ My primary focus is #OwnVoices stories by Black and/or BIPOC authors, disabled and chronically ill authors, and LGBTQ2S+ authors. I love the #SpineSquad with all my heart, but it is still a majority white group and my goal is for that to change in the future.

1/ 2020 is coming to a close and I am at query inbox zero! I have a small stack of partials and 10 fulls to read and consider. I remain open for queries, but I won't be reading anything new before 2021 at this point. What am I looking for in 2021? GLAD YOU ASKED! πŸ‘‡ #MSWL

Just spent part of a check-in call gushing with an editor about how much we would love to collaborate on a project about the present/future of accessibility in a COVID-affected world by a disabled and/or chronically ill author. If this is you... #MSWL #CripLit

I would be so interested if there was a Chinese journalist who wanted to do a deep-dive true crime and sociocultural analysis of this case. #MSWL

#WritingCommunity, I always hear from editors who want sprawling, epic, family sagas. I TOO want one of those, especially one that’s from a marginalized author subverting the genre a bit and giving me all the feels. If you have this, PLEASE query me! #AmQuerying #MSWL
