Are there any SFF stories/novels about a pandemic that mostly kills white people (e.g. the reverse of the one we're living now) & its effects on society? If not, & a BIPOC writer wants to write it for YA: #MSWL

@chavelaque What subject would you like to see more books about?

A PB on the Atlanta washerwoman’s strike, or Pullman porters, or the Chicano rights movement; MG novels starring boys of color doing sports; MG or YA NF on topics of POC history #mswl

Coming late to #MSWL Day: Educational PBs that read like trade ones; character-driven MG; truth-telling YA; all of it diverse; #ownvoices preferred.

I'm reading a YA novel where the protagonist measures herself against her confident, bubbly, flirty best friend, & *just once* I'd like a submission where that best friend is the protagonist. #mswl

I'd love a YA novel about academic competition--debate, quiz bowl, Science Olympiad--that makes them as exciting as physical sports. #MSWL

1) I want to publish a YA with the astounding, hopeless, human, desperately romantic feeling as "Heroes." #MSWL youtube.com/watch?v=YYjBQK…
