I would LOVE an LGBTQ+ rom com where they just ARE. They love, they fight, they live.
Give me POC who don't have to justify themselves constantly. They can have their own plot and action and agency and not answer to others.

Kaitlyn Johnson - closed to Queries @RedPenKaitlynIt's almost time!!! Given how I'll be opening my query box again in November, here's my new and improved #MSWL 😆 #amagenting #querytip #amquerying pic.twitter.com/nbD7rKjsCl
In YA & MG, I really want historical, paranormal, contemporary, fantasy (of all kinds!), and non-graphic horror
Keep in mind, I'm super on the hunt for LGBTQ+, diverse voices, and new settings/events/creatures that aren't mainstream

Stephanie Kim @stephaniemkimI decided to become an agent because I want to be part of the change to help diversify publishing (an industry I love very much).
To that end, I’d love to see fiction and non-fiction queries from #OwnVoices, the BIPOC community, LGBTQIA writers and every voice in between.
aboolish the police @captainstephHello i want YA with the POWERFUL pining and lush worldbuilding of The Untamed #mswl bonus points if it's a graphic novel except then I'll have to duel @rosepleuler to the death about it
Yes please also my #MSWL—by queer East Asian authors!
Queer YA or adult horror by an author of color, I need it. Maybe it’s because it’s October, but I’m craving a queer MEXICAN GOTHIC or THE YEAR OF THE WITCHING, or something like in the vein of WILDER GIRLS by an author of color. #MSWL
Kiara 👉🏾#ACAB @dezinpubMSWL: I really want a contemporary vampire graphic novel pitch with queer POC characters. 😭✨
Omg yes 👀 #mswl
And now, for funsies, lets get some #MSWL up in here! I'm super excited to be getting more queer subs but would be very happy to see more BIPOC in my inbox. In this spooky season I would particularly love to meet more "monsters" (scary or not so scary) from other cultures.
In the same vein...someone please send me queer Midsommar. As my brilliant coworker @jruoxichen pointed out, the plot SHOULD have been: "Florence Pugh rejects mediocre man and joins Scandinavian lesbian collective to sing crop rites and do craft." I need it. #mswl
SEND ME QUEER HORROR PROJECTS. I've got a personal soft spot for bi protagonists (because...hi), but I'm looking for horror characters/stories from every part of the LGBTQ+ community. Give me characters grappling with sexuality/gender and ALSO monsters #mswl
Countdown #MSWL Day 2:
Queer rep for days especially by authors of color.
I'd love a rom-com, a story that follows queer teens having to stick together, and stories where queer characters get a happy ending.
