When I was in middle school, I got bullied for saying I was Latinx bc I didn't look or sound Latinx. & that drove me to completely reject a core part of myself until I was AT LEAST 21.
So, a #MG about being white-passing is high up on my #MSWL.

#MSWL chapter book or middle grade novel. Here is our protagonist. Here is the feeling that pervades the book... JOY.

These three beauties all came from #pitmad pitches! We won't have time to stop by tomorrow, but please do check out our #MSWL :
And submit any #STEM #OWN or other #PB #MG #CB that you think would be a good fit for us!
What I'm currently looking for:
1) Culturally rich MG contemporary that will make me ugly cry.
2) Culturally rich YA fantasy or contemporary with unapologetic female protagonists who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty. #MSWL
Patrice Caldwell @whimsicallyoursSeeing several writers talking about their fear that their queer girl books won’t sell and how that’s stopping them. Please write these stories, find agents, etc. who will champion them. I certainly want to see them and I know SO MANY other editors who do as well. Please 💕🙏🏾
I've been standing on this soapbox for years. Send me your queer girl stories. Especially middle grade. Make me cry like the first time I saw FUN HOME and heard "Ring of Keys." These stories deserve to be heard! #MSWL
