I would LOVE more #ownvoices Filipino YA or MG (set in the US or the Philippines) in my slush. My SIL is from the Philippines, my niece/nephew are being raised bilingual, I would love to find a gem to champion! #mswl

Authors! I've been closed to queries for 3 months due to ill health in my family. I am re-opening today, but being somewhat specific on what I'm seeking. Please read this thread or my #MSWL manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara… (The tulip is just for fun.) ....

I've tumbled into a research hole about the Jewish-American Mafia, and...folks, this is so specific...but if anybody's sitting on an ownvoices YA set during the turn-of-the-20th-century and following a teen swept up by the Purple Gang, I'm your girl #MSWL

For romance, my current #MSWL is Romantic Suspense; Amish or Inspirational; Feminist AF contemporary romance; and #OwnVoices love stories. <3

I'm starting to catch up on my submissions. I've answered all queries and have read all submissions sent before January 15th. To celebrate, I'm reposting my pretty #MSWL pic.

Hey, #amquerying peeps! I really, really, really want MG projects. #OwnVoices and #diversity = bonus! I also really, really, really want some I-cannot-put-this-down thrillers. Send query & 1st 5 pages to: querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (dot) com. #mswl

I'd really love to see a historical fiction MG that provides an #ownvoices perspective on the past. Please please please. #MSWL

#OwnVoices writers and illustrators, especially POC creators, please send me your work! I’m very eager to see and would especially love to see stories, and writers, based in Africa. #MSWL

Would love to see an #OwnVoices cozy mystery featuring Latina sisters in the vein of Anne George’s Southern Sisters series. Whether they be senior sisters or teens, I’d love to see a sibling cozy mystery with a latinx MC. #MSWL

I'm looking for #OwnVoices children's nonfiction writers. If submitting, please send to submissions at stonesong.com and put "query" and "children's nonfiction" somewhere in the subject line. Thanks! #MSWL

In all categories, I welcome writers from marginalized backgrounds, writing #ownvoices or not. Your voice deserves to be heard, and even if we're not the right fit, I'm rooting for ALL OF YOU. #MSWL

When I open in April, as always, I encourage #ownvoices submissions of YA and MG by #POC and #LGBTQ+ I will not be open to picture book submissions. #MSWL

As a Korean-American, I'm on the hunt for anything that showcases my culture and heritage. I want to boost our stories across genres: contemporary, historical, SF/F...again, own-voices only. #mswl

Hey #writingcommmunity I'm looking for some specific things in my queries so here are a few #mswl items I'd love to see!

In #YA I'm looking for a few things. 1) Diverse, inclusive contemporary by #ownvoices authors 2) Send me something that will absolutely break my heart 3) strong voices in any genre 4) I always love a MC with an attitude and witty comebacks. #MSWL
