Tu Books, an imprint of @LEEandLOW , publishes diverse middle grade and YA books set at the point where imagination and real life collide.
A #NewVisionsAward #MSWL that would be perfect by the right indigenous writer: novel or graphic novel inspired by this teen water protector who was just named chief water commissioner by the Ashinabek Nation: cbc.ca/news/canada/su…
Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitmanJust realized it's #MSWL day. I've tweeted occasional MSWLs whenever they've come up, so feel free to search my history, but here's the gist of what I'm looking for:
All books must star IPOC
I only publish MG and YA fiction & graphic novels (see exceptions below)
Crystal Frasier @ NorWesCon @AmazonChiqueGod I love history!
...also, this would be an amazing setting for an RPG campaign pic.twitter.com/p4unNgiKBt
Seriously, writers: if you can write this, this is a serious #MSWL. Must be either MG or YA, could be graphic novel or novel. Or even nonfiction, if you want to tackle the real-world facts of this. #submissions #amwriting #YAlit #MGlit
Tu Books @tubooksRe: LRT: Our #MSWL hasn't changed much since we last tweeted on the HT, so go back through for more details, but couple things specifically:
We're actively looking for all sorts of MG/YA stories that star Muslim main characters--realism, SFF, graphic novels. #MSWL
Tu Books @tubooks<that's also on our #MSWL--MG/YA starring Muslim characters from any culture, and/or Middle Eastern origin (not synonymous).
We're also actively looking for graphic novels for young readers (MG/YA) starring Native & Muslim characters. #MSWL
Tu Books @tubooksFor writers, we'd like to see graphic novel scripts. Guidelines here: leeandlow.com/writers-illust… #MSWL
Tu Books @tubooksYou might have seen our 2 recent graphic novel acquisitions announcements. Use those for guidance. publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/ch… #MSWL
Tu Books @tubooksTo sum up: so many potential stories by Native authors that we're not seeing in children's/YA books right now. #ownvoices
Mackenzi Lee @themackenzileeToday we are talking about Pingyang, army-mustering teenage military strategist who overthrew a tyrant in Imperial China. And we’re off!
