THIS!!! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 If a trope and/or trend has "already been done” but it's never been done by BIPOC authors, I want to read it 💜 This is forever on my #MSWL
I’m most actively looking for MG and YA graphic novels by BIPOC creators. I’d love to see contemporary projects or stories with a touch of magic. Would also love to see more nonfiction GNs. #mswl
⟡ Afrofuturist Fantasy, Africanfuturist SF, or any BIPOC SF/F story with BIPOC characters. Send me everything that comps Nnedi Okorafor or N.K. Jemisin.
⟡ Literary or Upmarket Magical Realism like Carlos Ruiz Zafón's THE SHADOW OF THE WIND.

⟡ Contemporary fantasy or magical realism like BIPOC ADDIE LARUE or THE MIDNIGHT LIBRARY.
⟡ Anything that comps SPACE SWEEPERS, THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY, Maniac (Netflix), or Warrior (HBO Max).

I'm *always* open to pitches, no MS needed, from BIPOC authors who have published romance novels (inc. self-published). To learn about pitching a Hallmark romance novel (not script), Christmas or no, slide into my DMs 🙂 Pass it on!

Almost 500 years ago, an African man arrived in Japan. He would go on to become the first foreign-born man to achieve the status of a samurai warrior pic.twitter.com/BrHfbjW6PC
I'd love to see in my queries:
- Atmospheric, woodsy, lush horror like THE YEAR OF THE WITCHING (YA, A)
- Domestic/psychological thrillers by BIPOC authors (A)
- Scavenger hunts (MG, YA, A)
- Eerie spec fic in isolated settings (CATHERINE HOUSE, THE WATER CURE)
Hello #AmQuerying writers! I’ll be closed to unsolicited queries 2/10-3/10. Meanwhile, here are my top #MSWL

✨Queer witchy rom com
✨Queer romantic fantasy
✨Queer domestic thrillers
I’m noticing a theme here 🏳️🌈📚
Hi all, back again with a #MSWL update.
I'd LOVE to get my YA romance list to match my adult romance list. @camilliemill and @chloe_liese have spoiled me rotten with inclusive, swoony romances.
For YA romance, I want all of the BIPOC rep, disability rep, and LGBTQIA+ rep 😍🤗
I loved everything about Sylvie's Love on @PrimeVideo: the 50s Harlem setting, the music scene, the love story. It's made me eager to find more historical romance/women's fiction featuring BIPOC characters. #MSWL
Feather Flores 🌸 @featherfullyPLEASE read this thread. Every publishing professional I know *needs* to read this thread. 👇🏼 twitter.com/laviecestmoi/s…
Also, if you are a BIPOC creator and you see yourself & your stories in this thread (heck, I know I do): I WANT THEM. I will always want them. And I will fight for them. #MSWL
Officially wrapped on 2020 submissions! Agents, here's my #mswl for this year.
Before I start: I will always be looking to foreground queer and BIPOC voices, and on the hunt for killer hooks I can't even finish pitching without someone mashing the preorder button.
Where is the Adult Women's Fiction that transforms The Hangover or Bridesmaids into something very black or BIPOC and very queer? #mswl Fuck, give me A Devil Wears Prada that's but with anything but the corporate world. Black, BIPOC, queer only.
