Anyone with queer or BIPOC centered fiction/nonfiction/short story collections and humor, feminist memoirs & essays, please send my way! #MSWL
Over at #MSWL, I've got a little list of what I'm looking for up, as well as some musings about the importance of LGBTQIA2S+ books!
Looking for more LGBTQIA+ horror, including in the vein of Carpenter’s PRO-LIFE, so eff SCOTUS, the GOP, and TERFs. #mswl
(Addendum: For the rom-com requests above, I always want to see LGBTQ+ stories!)
I'd love to have in my inbox: a contemporary ya with voice for days, a strong hook, a lot of heart, and genuine humor. Preferably with queer, disability, and/or nd rep. #mswl
Here's a sweet #MSWL tweet from @AgentJessicaA!
"I want more joyful books—book club fiction, women’s fiction, romance, memoir—just books that are filled with positivity and hope. Uplifting, happy stories with BIPOC and LGBTQ+ characters are especially wanted."
Ernie Chiara @erniechiara✨In the generes I rep, I'd love to see more projects by writers from Black, Indigenous, Latine/x, Asian, AAPI, Middle Eastern, and African communities and their far-reaching diasporas, as well as the LGBTQIA+, trans and nonbinary, and disabled and neurodiverse communities. #MSWL

It's the last day of Pride Month and there still isn't a single proposal for a book on Melville in my inbox. Shame on all of you. #MSWL

“YA non-fiction: Memoir, essay collections, you name it. Queer There & Everywhere is probably my favorite YA non-fic title in recent memory, and a great example of what I’d like to see.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Sabina Nordqvist @sabinapostsI'm just a girl, standing in front of publishing, asking them to publish stories about disabled characters... by authors who have those disabilities. 🙏
Yes!! I’m opening to queries on July 1, and I’d love to receive manuscripts with disabled characters! Also #BIPOC & #LGBTQ+. Would especially love indigenous characters/stories. Check out my #MSWL while you wait! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/cath…
#mswl BIPOC mythology! I don't know half as much as I should and I want stories that show me your glorious culture, your timeless stories, and your characters in all their facets. Bonus if it's gay (although strikes me all mythology should be gay!!)
A queer middle grade (any genre) with the big-hearted joy of @jhillmanbooks’s BIG WIG!
✨I would LOVE to see some queer rom-coms in my inbox✨#mswl
