"I am passionate about representing under- or misrepresented voices, including BIPOC, LGBTQ2S+, disabled or chronically ill, and neurodivergent authors. I would especially love to get more submissions from fellow Latinx writers."
"I want unique cookbook concepts by BIPOC bloggers."

A sex scene in this bedroom.
But with kink & poly positive rep of queer ppl & bipoc
Nidhi Pugalia @makep1enotw4rI want a sultry romance you know not a spicy romance but like a season 2 Bridgerton all-about-the-near-touch romance BIPOC set perhaps extremely specifically in dark academia maybe the stakes are super high maybe it's P&P meets Ninth House idk I haven't thought about it that much
Before I open up to queries, I thought I’d share my shiny new #MSWL : manuscriptwishlist.com/?post_type=msw…
What I do love to see in the YA Contemporary field are thrillers, hauntings that can toe the line of horror without going overboard, rom-coms, friendship break ups, and grandparent relationships. I especially love to see all this with BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+ characters. #mswl
In addition to this, I’m packed on adult romance and rom-com writers right now, but will always be open for the select few that catch my eye. I specifically look for and ask for marginalized voices here from BIPOC. I also have a soft spot for K-dramas. #mswl
Agents! I am eager for new, exciting acquisitions and I updated my #mswl to prove it! Check out what I’m looking for here (spoiler alert: subversive horror, witty rom coms, & unique genre mash-ups): manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/alis…
-BIPOC-led mysteries and thrillers, especially those with romantic and cozy *elements* even if you may not consider them fully cozy. e.g. there are dogs. there is a bakery. there is a fluffy tooth-rotting romance
-again, more BIPOC in the great outdoors
MG and YA:
-mysteries, family dramas, tearjerkers w happy endings (especially autumn- and holiday-centric this time of year!)
-more BIPOC in the great outdoors
-really strong voices with messy feelings
-Specifically would love a PB about BIPOC learning to camp, visiting a national park, etc.
-outdoors. more outdoors, always
-gutsy, silly, obnoxious kids taking center stage
-unique aspects of culture (am always open to food, but am mostly looking for non-food entry points to story right now)
-author-illustrators whose styles feel ✨cozy✨
-NF about BIPOC history!
(Reminder that I only rep writers from systemically excluded communities, with an emphasis on BIPOC)
contemporary retellings of non-Western folklore have been on my wish list for a while now, but i'd also like to see BIPOC- and queer-led reinventions of ~the classics~ like @NghiVoWriting's THE CHOSEN AND THE BEAUTIFUL
Larissa Melo Pienkowski @lmpnkhappy autumn! 🍂 i am SO excited to open for queries again through the end of the year (possibly later than that, but we'll see).
you know what that means...#amquerying authors, my complete and updated MSWL! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/lari…
w/ specific wants below, a 🧵:
as always, my list focuses primarily on BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, disabled, neurodivergent, and other historically excluded voices. eu adoraria representar mais autores brasileiros especialmente!

This piece just renewing my bipoc vampire #mswl desires
Meg Reid 🦦 @megireidMy #MSWL: novels; single-topic nonfiction; nonfiction projects that blend memoir/reportage; projects by BIPOC writers, non-MFAs, writers over 40.
Modern and imaginative books that redefine/interrogate the modern or historic South.
boosting this CNF #MSWL on the occasion of the manuscript reading period opening on Saturday!
Juli IS AGENTED @ConduitOfMagic@KeirAlekseii BIPOC elves 🥲
This ole fogey grew up reading Forgotten Realms novels, okay? Evermeet was like, one of my fav books of ALL TIME (it's okay if #TeamBaby doesn't know what that is 😋)
Seriously. All-BIPOC Forgotten Realms-like work, or ALL BIPOC LOTR kinda vibes? #MSWL
Oh, BIPOC vampires, too (though I might have said that before) #MSWL
Keir Alekseii @KeirAlekseiiI've passed on several manuscripts recently (one with BIPOC elves that made me cry to say no to, in particular) ALL because the word counts were 180k and over.
Thank you, Ann, for explaining WHY we end up doing this. twitter.com/annmrose/statu…
In other news though... BIPOC Elves are on my #MSWL
