For Young Adult, my biggest #MSWL is fun, lighthearted novels by POC and LGBTQ+ writers. I see so many submissions for issues-based stories—which we need, don't get me wrong—but I want to put a little more joy into the lives of teen readers who already deal with so much shit.

Reminder that not all work by POC must be weighty, dramatic books. White authors got to write thousands of fluffy books and cash the checks. We shouldn't be appreciated only when it gets dark and horrible.

I so badly want these “fluffy” YA books by POC and LGBTQ+ writers. As much as I love angst and think “issue books” are super important, I also love ridiculously fun stories that make readers feel good about life (including their identities). #MSWL
