contemporary retellings of non-Western folklore have been on my wish list for a while now, but i'd also like to see BIPOC- and queer-led reinventions of ~the classics~ like @NghiVoWriting's THE CHOSEN AND THE BEAUTIFUL
Larissa Melo Pienkowski @lmpnkhappy autumn! 🍂 i am SO excited to open for queries again through the end of the year (possibly later than that, but we'll see).
you know what that means...#amquerying authors, my complete and updated MSWL! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/lari…
w/ specific wants below, a 🧵:
as always, my list focuses primarily on BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, disabled, neurodivergent, and other historically excluded voices. eu adoraria representar mais autores brasileiros especialmente!
i would love to see:
✨ BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled, neurodivergent, undocumented, historically excluded voices
✨ adult fiction set in latin america (esp brazil) across genre, own voices
✨ MG fantasy feat. non-western folklore and high personal stakes
i have SO many incredible queries in my inbox and i'm reading from my couch so keep 'em coming! some of my #MSWL : heartwarming YA w/ mixed-race families, gorgeous essay collections on queerness/sex/sexuality, and adult fic w/ a protagonist of color figuring out their early 20s
