My #A #MSWL page is live! Agents, send me your BIPOC myth-retellings--your dark, lyrical novels that dip into fantasy--your REBECCA-esque gothic fiction--your quirky, voicey nonfic. Make me hungry, teach me something, whisk me away: bit.ly/2Udh4Is📚

Only #YA and #MG. Whodunit mysteries like Truly Devious (riddles!). Closed door thrillers/mysteries. Witchy stories like Undead Girl Gang and The Craft, grounded in the real world. #mswl

Always looking for BIPOC writers!

If you have it and I miss it, please send anyway!

#MSWL #YA: I love RomComs and anything with a ghost-y or #supernatural quality. #LTBTQ+, #OwnVoices and #BIPOC authors are always welcome. I do still like issue-driven YA, but am looking for something super-edgy in this realm.

As a Black editor, one of my goals is to acquire diverse voices including LGTBQIA+, BIPOC, Latinx, neurodiverse, and other underrepresented identities. I’m very passionate about diversity and representation in publishing. #MSWL

Y’all know the drill! I want a character driven coming-of-age contemporary YA centered around a queer BIPOC girl that feels like Sour by Olivia Rodrigo. #mswl

Hey friends, I'm a little pitch contest-ed out (I'm sorry!!!) but I *would* love to see some adult queer and BIPOC horror in my QM. I'll be closing to queries at the end of May to go through my inbox, so please do send me yours if you feel I'd be a good fit! #mswl

I’d love an LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC friend group fantasy adventures style MG or YA story. Think the Stranger Things gang or Losers Club. #MSWL
