"According to the Cooperative Children’s Book Council’s (CCBC) 2019 study, only 3.4 percent of all children’s literature had a disabled main character."
Disabled representation will always be on my #MSWL.
#MSWL time. Does anyone remember Cybersix? It was a comic, I watched the television series. I'd love to see another gender-bending story (graphic novel or fiction) in my inbox. Also think Nikita with Maggie Q.
Rounding off my #MSWL tweets today, in NF I’m looking for the following topical themes:
-cultural criticism (e.g. gender, race, sexuality)
-YA books about the +/- effects of the beauty industry
-parenting, reproductive health, physical wellness
#MSWL In adult fiction I'm looking for:
-LIFE IN PIECES in book form (& ensemble casts)
-something commercial with delicious vacation drama
-characters with an entrepreneurial spirit (again and always)
-clever arc structures and use of form
#MSWL I would love to read more YA non-fiction graphic novels that:
-showcase proactive groups of people (think GIRLS WHO RUN THE WORLD)
-deal with serious topics (reproductive rights, loss, mental illness, etc.) in a positive way (can be fiction too)
-are inspiring memoirs
Stephanie Winter @readbystephanieWith #DVpit just around the corner, I want to share a few more #MSWL asks over the next week.
A thread. 🔖
#MSWL I want to grow my list of comic creators. I’d love to see protagonists/characters who are:
-have various body types
-come from marginalized communities
-struggle with mental illness
-defy gendered stereotypes + representation
Brit Brooks-Perilli @Britny_PerilliIllustrated/graphic novel style non-fiction is something that I really want to see more of in my inbox!
Cookbooks and food are great, but I would love to see author/illustrator teams work on other topics as well like film, books, nature, science, pop culture, etc. #MSWL pic.twitter.com/tFCywHcKIF
This #MSWL is a big ask for me as well! You don't see enough of these.
Stephanie Winter @readbystephanieWriters! If you had to describe your first chapter in gif form, which gif would you use?
