Hi! I’m putting it out into the universe that I‘d love to acquire more middle grade novels! I want to find strong personalities and big hearts, stories about finding confidence and discovering friendship, magical stories, contemporary tales, amplifying marginalized voices. #MSWL

Hi I would give ANYTHING to acquire a middle grade novel that’s like the nostalgic, slice-of-life, utterly precious gift that is Only Yesterday. #MSWL

I want to believe that stories can change hearts. I’m actively seeking stories about immigrants, refugees, and the marginalized, so please send me your graphic novels, your picture books, your YA, your MG! Love and empathy and awareness can be radical. #MSWL

Hi it’s Brooklyn Pride and I just want to publish and celebrate sweet, earnest, cozy queer stories until the cows come home—picture book, MG, YA, you name it! Open to any and all reading recs, definitely also on my #MSWL

I’d be honored to help amplify Native American voices through literature, and am very much seeking Native stories—picture book, MG, YA—as part of my #MSWL .

Friendly reminder that picture books, MG, or YA novels about Brasilian culture or protagonists are at the top of my #MSWL ! Very hype to hear that @fsgbooks is publishing O sol na Cabeça by Geovani Martins!

I really want to read/acquire YA and MG featuring Brazilian and/or bicultural characters (I am a teensy bit biased). Cadê os meus brasileiros?!

Another deeply-desired #mswl involves magical realism + bicultural characters negotiating their identities, MG or YA
