Diverse

John Cusick @johnmcusick · Jan 16

Secondly, YA: I love genre stuff, fantasy, sci-fi, even the right historical. I'd love to see some really high-concept stand alone, too. And in all things, diverse voices, diverse stories, under-represented points of view, ALWAYS. #MSWL

#MSWL Diverse adult SFF. Unique worldbuilding and complex characters.

3/ 2019 #MSWL Agents: 1st and always, I want to curate a list of authors (and books) that accurately reflects the world around me--one that is filled with diverse creators and content--and support them in our shared goal of creating more mirrors (and portals) for kids and teens.

Opening up our @DA_Childrens submissions for 2019! If you're working on an #ownvoices #MG adventure with an unusual mythology, a diverse #YA that's as funny as Louise Rennison, some ground-breaking children's #nonfiction #PB or ANYTHING ELSE #kidlit send it my way #MSWL

Kelsy @kelsythompson · Jan 2

One of my #NewYearsResolution2019 is to acquire an engaging contemporary #middlegrade novel, especially one featuring diverse or LGBTQIA+ characters, #girlsinstem, or an #ownvoices narrative. Anyone wanna help me make this happen? #MSWL

#MSWL. One 2019 resolution is to expand my representation to Middle Grade. I love these books, especially ones w/messages of hope/inclusion/diversity that may also address difficult emotional situations. And ones w/fantasy/superpowers. Please query me at atuttle@dystel.com.

Likewise, I always have room for more own voices work for children and teens from poc, lgbt+, queer, neurodiverse, disabled and other marginalized authors and illustrators. #mswl

Naomi Davis The Caffeinated @NaomisLitPix · 31 Dec 2018

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS #MSWL - Diversity in all its beautiful forms. Stories that ask important questions. Neurodiverse voices and characters welcome. Lots of #ownvoices.

Goals for 2019 inspired by @NaomisLitPix & @SoCalledYALife
- Stop using "I think" so much
- Help the Agents of @bookendslit achieve their goals
- Rep more psychl suspense & women's fiction--especially diverse & own voices to my list. #MSWL

James McGowan @jamerrson · 12 Dec 2018

Send me your #ownvoices and diverse books! I want to read your stories. I want to be a part of bringing them to shelves.

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 11 Dec 2018

I want more diverse books and #ownvoices stories. I'd like to see books set in other countries like CRAZY RICH ASIANS or NEXT YEAR IN HAVANA. #MSWL

Q5. For Kate: Following on from the previous question: what would you like to see more of in romance, or possibly less of? #ukromchat @katenashagent @linalanglee pic.twitter.com/bjQY5tWKDS

Replying to @ukromchat

I'm looking for 1. Sweeping epics in war, like Gone With The Wind. 2) Romance reflecting today's UK diverse communities, such as inner cities or very rural. 3) a real Victorian rags-to-riches tear-jerker. 4) In romcom, new settings like @KarenAldous_ Alps #MSWL #UKRomChat
