Diverse

“Within culture I’m looking for diverse takes on current events, politics, niche cultures and interesting voices.” @maureen_moretti #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

#MSWL Looking for adult contemp romance: primarily queer or neurodiverse. I really want to focus on queer and/or autistic relationships and show the broad range of experiences that heterocis/neurotypical creators/characters have tons of page space to show already.

“For me, literary fiction lives and dies in its characters and writing, send me your complex, diverse characters grappling with what it means to be human something in the vein of Tom Rachman’s THE IMPERFECTIONISTS.” @maureen_moretti #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Historical fiction that showcases diversity and tells the kind of historical stories we're not used to hearing, and the kind of historical figures we're not used to seeing #mswl

And of course my evergreen #MSWL is to rep more creators of diverse and marginalized backgrounds.

Kat Enright (they/them) @katenright · Oct 1

And as always -- all marginalized voices are welcome! Believe me, I understand how hard it is for queer, poc, disabled, and other marginalized individuals to succeed in publishing. You are always welcome in my inbox. #MSWL

And another #mswl in the thriller space: I am horribly obsessed with true crime about cults, and family secrets that lead to deadly outcomes, and wild stuff like this. In Adult, especially, and in YA!

Adding to the #mswl because I think I botched a previous ask in this thread! I LOVE small town stories, (ESPECIALLY Adult romance!!) I just want them diverse and from a different voice! I also think of suburbs and small towns as completely different settings, sorry for confusion!

IN GENERAL:
- Mother / daughter relationships
- Diverse stories by diverse creators
- And of course, stories that I don’t even know I want. I love to be wowed. (And proceed to ramble about how much I love something to @GraceKendallLit) 😉❤️

YOUNG ADULT:
- A fresh, self-aware diverse romance ala #JaneTheVirgin for teens
-A LGBTQIA+ story that doesn’t feature a coming out story
-A freshman year of college story!!
-A gritty, heart-pounding thriller rooted in character with a slow-burning romance

All ages: Female friendship, gender subversion, Southern Gothics, wordplay and puns, under-explored chapters in history, Jewish characters beyond WWII/shtetl, economic #diversity, genre blends, stories set in the deep South, rural America, and the Southwest. That's my #MSWL.

In SFF, I love a kickass heroine doing kickass things. I want to see a diverse group of people (in a multicultural/gender/sexuality sense) coming together to fight whatever BIG BAD there is. While High Fantasy isn't a good fit, pretty much everything else is.

i’m still digging my way out from under a pile of submissions (sorry agents!!!) but there’s always room on my #MSWL for:
- unapologetically self-indulgent, diverse #YA
- YA historical fiction, mystery, & fantasy
- YA contemporary, either dark & spine-tingly or warm & lighthearted

the rest of this is ROMANCE ❤️
**rom-coms - and I'd really like to see some diversity here in the characters, their identities, and their backgrounds
**it's gotta be funny but not like slapstick humor - give me witty banter, and funny scenarios that aren't over the top

Middle grade: looking for page turners, sci-fi, mysteries, and HUMOR please! Also, always fantasy! More diverse friendships among characters. Would love a dual (or multi) perspective MG too. #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 24

I LOVE Fantasy (Urban, Contemporary, Epic, the whole wazoo). Give me lush worlds, fabulous magic systems, diverse and deep cultures. I'd love to see these also grappling with environmental issues or disability/mental health #MSWL

Contemporary YA! Especially commercial and high concept YA that can be pitched as x meets y. Especially especially a rom com. The next TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE, a younger RED, WHITE, & ROYAL BLUE, etc. Diverse voices!
