I really want to see more #ownvoices refugee submissions for both MG and YA. North Korea especially, but also Colombia, the Middle East, and beyond. #mswl 🙏

In MG: Stories that are lyrical and on the more literary range of the spectrum. Especially ones that have some invisible chronic condition representation that I think so important and something I’d love to see for this age category. #mswl

Y'all, I super want a MG with a nonbinary MC and it's not a thing. They don't need to explain themselves. People use they and it's fine. Reading it as just natural will MAKE it just natural for kids #MSWL

On the totally other end of the spectrum, I want YA and especially MG contemporary graphic novels! I want heartbreaking friendships and first crushes and discovering yourself and coming into your own.
