Between my new found love for Oumi Janta and binge-watching Betty, I am so ready for some rollerblading/skateboarding YA magic to happen #mswl

Something I would love to see is plus-sized protags in graphic novels proposals for children. It's rare to this representation in prose novels but even rarer to see it in visual mediums. #mswl

Never Have I Ever truly destroyed me--I haven't cried this hard over a show in a while. But can I just say, seeing a girl of color being able to make a wide array of mistakes and still get a happy-ish ending really does something for me--more stories like this please #mswl

Oh #TheHalfOfIt, you are everything I knew you would be and more. I adore Ellie's journey, her path to finding herself. An ideal coming-of-age story and I want more like it #mswl

Agent friends! Please know that I would love to see more middle grade, young adult, and graphic novel projects from trans women and trans POC #mswl

Soooo I'm just going to pop in to say that a Sisterhood of Traveling Pants like friendship story with an all queer and/or POC cast of character has been on my #mswl for aaaawhile.

Watching Shrill just reminds how desperately I need some POC plus sized protags in my YA and MG #mswl

Sooooo...guess who’s an Associate Editor now?!?!? 🎉🎉🎉

Also, feels like the right time to mention by #MSWL page 😉Check out all the many wonderful things I would love to see on submission!

To any agent who may see this, please please please send me more submissions by Latinx creators. I am always looking for Latinx middle grade, YA, and graphic novels. #MSWL here 😉…

A reminder to all that I am ALWAYS looking for own voices genderqueer, trans, and non-binary submissions in children’s and across genres #mswl

Agent friends! I did my college honors thesis on Japanese American literature on internment and I would love to see any projects that engage with this part of history from an own voices creator. #MSWL

Between Pride and Copa América, I've got two new #mswl. The first: send me your MG/YA own voices projects starring genderqueer, non-binary, and trans protags. I'm especially trying to get more transmasc representation out there
