#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

Melanie Fried @Melanie_Fried · 8 Dec 2018

#mswl: historical (1900s), romcom, immigrant stories, diverse voices, high society, light suspense or speculative hook, campus setting, southern, complex female friendships, family dramas, gothic, nostalgia. Upmarket with commercial hook. Agented only.

@thewhalenagency @louisesbay I’m trying to find your wish list on #mswl, but your name is not coming up.

Replying to @ellen_press

Just a reminder TWA is open to submissions and my #MSWL includes fiction of any kind, diverse characters, strong women. Horror, crime and thrillers. Watching Haunting of Hill House and reading my submissions from #PitDark has energized me!

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 13 Nov 2018

Mystery: historical--again, especially diverse historical--cozies, and mysteries with so much atmosphere you can practically wring it out of the pages. If your setting is integral to your story, I want to see it! #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 13 Nov 2018

Time for some #mswl tweets! Here's a peek at what I'd love to see in my query inbox. Romance: historical--especially diverse historical--rom suspense, and contemp romcom. As a general rule, I'm far more likely to fall for a story that makes me laugh than one that makes me cry.

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · 1 Nov 2018

I'm esp looking for bks that center marginalized voices & are intersectional. I don't see enough religious diversity. I’m fascinated by ritual & faith; how these intertwine to create belief. What does belief feel like? What's it like to want to believe, but find you can't? #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · 26 Oct 2018
