kelly andrew @KayAyDrewI was just told by someone in my life that no one cares about reading d/Deaf or HoH own voices stories, and that I'm "barking up the wrong tree."
Maybe he was right, but I've never in my life been more motivated to prove anyone wrong.
Massive respect for the Deaf and HoH community! My college ASL Classes and time spent in the local community was an incredibly welcoming experience and I’d love to be a part of uplifting these stories. #MSWL

Ashley Congdon @AshleyCCongdon@jamerrson What themes, topics, styles, etc. excite you right now for picture books? #askagent
Is it fair to say everything? If I had to choose, non-fiction is most exciting to me right now, and I’m especially looking for some climate/environment related stuff. But I always love funny pbs. #MSWL
𝐬𝐡𝐫𝐢 🔱 श्रिया hiatus til 10/10 @sunandchaiyou’ve heard of warrior princess and unrivaled leader who needs no man (but gets one anyway) now get ready for:
lazy, jaded, openly bisexual princess/queen regent with a monstrous alcohol tolerance who lounges in pleasure houses and shows up to spear training late and hungover
#mswl honestly i'm here for the monstrous alcohol tolerance
it has been brought to my attention that today is #MSWL day! I'd love to see more:
- humor / sass
- lyrical prose in all genres - hit me like the prologues of STRANGE THE DREAMER / IN THE WOODS
- Family Emotions in the vein of FAR FROM THE TREE / THIS IS US
