For my personal #MSWL I adore a wide range of genres but especially sci-fi, fantasy, horror and romance (or any mix of the above!) Particular interest in stories with LGBTQ+, disabled and diverse characters. Incidental representation a plus - no more bury your gays pls! #WMPitch

We always want more submissions from BIPOC and LGBTQ authors (outreach is also key here, of course) and we’re eager to publish diverse books, including from debut authors. #MSWL #HallmarkPublishing

& similarly, diverse Southern voices, always, for every audience/genre I represent. As an agent, I'd love to fill bookshelves about the breadth of the real South, not the stereotyped South.

Forever #mswl : nonfiction books that help diversify publishing ***without*** being /about/ DEI.

(If you’re wondering, diversity to me is basically the @diversebooks definition of diversity + of subject matter/expertise)

#MSWL. Would love to see some historical fiction set in the 1950s. I am also a fan of most New York City history and stories about hidden figures who played a key role in the city's culture and arts. Continuing to look for YA and adult rom coms, especially with diverse casts.

I want "American Unearthed" but in a MG or YA series, with an odd mix of characters who don't normally hang out together but search for the truth while they discover they aren't so different after all. Diverse charcters will get precedence in slush pile! #MSWL #query
