“Stories that celebrate neurodiversity, from authors who are themselves neurodivergent, both in fiction and non-fiction, Middle Grade, Young Adult, and Adult.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
As a Black editor, one of my goals is to acquire diverse voices including LGTBQIA+, BIPOC, Latinx, neurodiverse, and other underrepresented identities. I’m very passionate about diversity and representation in publishing. #MSWL

Thank you all for the congrats on my promotion! For my #MSWL, I'd love to see more big diverse family sagas like @anndcardinal's The Storyteller's Death. I'd also love a high concept, high heat romance that is akin to what @katee_robert is doing with her Dark Olympus series.
If you’ve got a middle grade or YA high-concept fantasy where the diverse cast of protagonists try their best to be good and kind in the face of evil, like in THE DRAGON PRINCE, my inbox is open! #mswl
I’m so excited to open to queries Friday, March 26th, so here are some of my current top #MSWL items!
💫 Diverse romance is at the top of my list. I’m desperate for queer contemporary, historical or rom coms f/f or nb/f), as well as roms by BIPOC creators! All tropes welcome.
“Diverse adult fiction set in the fashion industry with popping visual imagery and lots of smart character-driven drama. Flagships, offices, shops, etc. welcome!" @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
Jean Kwok @JeanKwokMuch thanks to @meifung100 @kellyekell & the @thesundaytimes for this important article on the lack of diversity in thriller writing! twitter.com/johnmurrays/st…
This. Article. It's my entire career. My life.
PLEASE i am literally begging for more mystery/thrillers from BIPOC, queer, and neurodiverse writers. #MSWL
Eva Scalzo 🇵🇷 @evascalzoHi #amquerying friends, I'm reopening to queries at midnight tonight and I wanted to do an #MSWL thread to share my current #top5 wishes and wants. More details can be found on my website at evascalzo.com/mswl 1/7
But for all these wishes, I would love to see diverse stories from diverse authors. Not just BIPOC, but queer and disabled voices sharing stories that share their joy across a broad range of age categories. #MSWL 2/7
10: Feminist and/or queer romcoms, especially non-idealized depictions of polyamory and t4t romance. I don’t have comps for these! The closest I’ve come is the work of Xan West, parts of the TRANSCENDENT anthologies, and the gender diverse pronoun ed. of CAPRICIOUS.
