Morgan Al-Moor @MorganAlMoorOne thing about stories by BIPOC authors is that not only do they offer representation for the marginalized, but they also offer fresh takes on stories & tropes that might have been overdone, esp in SFF. Small thread👇🏾
Hey #AmQuerying writers, I’m closing to queries on June 1 for the summer, but will be open to #MSWL items (see below) through this link: QueryManager.com/AshleyBlake/MS…
✨Queer &/or BIPOC romance (rom com & contemp)
✨Mystery w/ WF (think FINLAY DONOVAN)
#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
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
Interested in working with me? Send query/synopsis/full ms to my attention via entangledpublishing.submittable.com/submit/. BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and all underrepresented voices are encouraged to query. #MSWL link in my bio 💛
*Historical stories that are feminist af
*Girls kissing girls
*Stories where the plot doesn't revolve around getting the guy
*Fantasies that feel fresh
*Make me laugh
I enthusiastically seek BIPOC, LGBTQAI+, disabled, neurodiverse, religious minority & otherwise underrepresented authors for my list & my goal is to publish books that prioritize making underrepped readers feel seen over making readers outside those groups comfortable
• Horror and supernatural fiction that radically represents and explores queer, female, and BIPOC rage
• Books that slide adeptly between humor and poignancy—if a book can make me laugh on one page and cry on the next, it wins my whole heart!
Hello writers! I am now open to queries! I'm looking for MG, YA, and adult books. Please find my full wishlist and submission guidelines on my website.
Below is a brief snapshot of my #MSWL. I look forward to hearing from you!
for RRP MG, i want snarky, funny, action-adventure 📚 featuring young BIPOC & deeply rooted in ✨mythology & magic ✨
here too i'd love to see even more intersectional protagonists & stories that subvert the typical RRP formula, like the upcoming SERWA BOATENG! (4/6)
#RickRiordanPresents does YA now! i'd love to see📚 that center BIPOC w/ an emphasis on intersectionality, & stories that feel deeply tied to culture & identity.
i want to explore genres outside of fantasy+cont. fantasy! i truly think this imprint can do it all ♥️ (2/6)
I would jump through hoops for submissions by Jewish #BIPOC authors, for picture books, chapter books, middle grade and YA. I'd love joyful stories, romances, fantasies, quirky and funny, and... whatcha got? #MSWL #writingcommunity
I'm especially on the lookout for stories from historically marginalized communities (but no trauma). For biographies let me see inventors, doctors, scientists! I love fantasy & romance & mysteries. Gimme all the #BIPOC, queer, religious, disabled characters doing awesome stuff!
