Like many fantasy readers, I love a good boarding school novel. I want one that tackles the Anglo-American boarding school as a tool by which socioeconomic class stratification, western imperialism, and patriarchy are taught and reinforced among impressionable children. #MSWL
Mara Delgado-Sanchez 🇵🇷 @little_mswriterI love YA fantasy and I’m looking for diverse stories and #ownvoices here. Where are the Latinx witches and kingdoms? Take me to places based off of cultures like my own, and not like my own. I like contemp, court intrigue, plot twists and tropes (and spins on tropes too) #MSWL
Still looking for my Latinx fantasy! (And reading the gems in my inbox) #mswl
Tamar Rydzinski @trydzinski#MSWL a MG adventure featuring a kid and his/her/their dog. Can be fantasy or not, but I want the friendship between child and canine to be front and center
Seconded! This is a big #MSWL for me too! Love stories of friendship between human and animal.

Elana Roth Parker @ElanaRothMy consultation spots for Black #kidlit authors are now full. But I will add more every month (no end date planned) and post the links when available. Meanwhile, I'm always happy to chat on Twitter for general questions. elana.me/consultations
And not to conflate things, I have never stopped looking for Black voices to add to my list of authors. If you write fun, escapist stories for MG or YA, I'm here! Currently hungry for rom-coms and light fantasy, but open to an adventure. elana.me/wish-list #mswl
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeSo let's talk graphic novel #MSWL ahead of me opening on 6/1. Below are just a small sample of some of my talented clients and their work.
For graphic novels, art is such a big part of it for me. pic.twitter.com/nePULFddzM
But you don't have to be an illustrator to give me graphic novels. I also love script only graphic novels #MSWL.
One thing I have noticed about my taste is I read for escape. I lean towards fantasy, or contemporary-elevated (which is not my regular every day).
I'd love to see more upmarket/literary fantasy in my inbox, a la TEN THOUSAND DOORS, UPROOTED, A DARKER SHADE. I'm particularly drawn to books that play with fairytales and folklore, but I'm looking for anything that draws me in w/ great characters and excellent writing. #mswl
Trisha de Guzman @trishadegLike many of us in these strange times, I’ve been taking comfort in books. And it’s made me think of the kinds of stories I want to champion.
Most of this won’t be a surprise, but for what it’s worth, here’s my current #MSWL:
- high-concept, darkly comic modern fables with literary writing and crossover appeal like THE PISCES or GEEK LOVE
- eerie and atmospheric fantasies inspired by non-Western mythology
- sweet contemporary rom-coms about QPOC main characters
I don’t even know what I mean when I say I want a YA or Adult SFF with the vibe of the “Rain On Me” video, but I want it #MSWL
(Also, at first I misheard the lyrics as “I’d rather be drunk but at least I’m alive,” and thought that was a bold truth)
Are there any SFF stories/novels about a pandemic that mostly kills white people (e.g. the reverse of the one we're living now) & its effects on society? If not, & a BIPOC writer wants to write it for YA: #MSWL
