We need more trans stories!
When I reopen to queries, I'd love to see your trans stories in any age range and genre, please!

JackieWrites @JackieKhaliliehIs there room for young ya (protagonists who are 14 & 15)? I hear there’s a gap....then why aren’t we filling it? This is such a great age to write for and read about. #YoungYA #askagent #ownvoices
Yes, and this is a giant #mswl for me!!
Tamar Rydzinski @trydzinski#MSWL a MG adventure featuring a kid and his/her/their dog. Can be fantasy or not, but I want the friendship between child and canine to be front and center
