"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 A YA or MG novel comping #DeadbyDaylight that is still totally character-driven and emotional.

#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.

#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

With #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:
-differently-abled
-have various body types
-come from marginalized communities
-struggle with mental illness
-defy gendered stereotypes + representation

#MSWL Modern co-parenting (think bird nesting) in a commercial romance where getting back with the ex is not even a thing.

Stephanie Winter @readbystephanie · Apr 9

#MSWL an accessible infographic-rich or GN NF about women's rights and health. Could be international.

Stephanie Winter @readbystephanie · Mar 21
