Hey #WritingCommunity, if I missed your #iswgpit and you think your project might be a good fit, or if you're simply in the #amquerying trenches: here are some things on my #MSWL (a thread)

- unique character-driven #YA contemporary with a voice that grabs you and won't let go
- #ownvoices and underrepresented narratives (I'm still looking for that #ya refugee/immigration story!)
- feminist, #LGBTQ , and sex-positive narratives
- shorter (~50k) contemporary #mg

To those #amquerying folk, here is my #MSWL for 2020 (and a few reminders)! I am still primarily looking for #YA fiction. I’m yearning for stories written by underrepresented writers with their #ownvoices. Please send them ALL💯

Replying to @LindaEpstein

For anyone who doesn't already know me, let me state loud & clear once again: Please send me your #BIPOC #LGBTQ+ #ownvoices #middlegrade & #YoungAdult manuscripts! Look at what I'm asking for in my other #MSWL tweets to see if we'd be a good match. (Ah! So many hashtags!)

see previous retweet: I could go for a reindeer herder novel (reflective antler paint optional but encouraged) #mswl

i'm picturing #ownvoices, maybe a coming-of-age. I feel like the setting could make for a great suspense. and/or something that engages with climate change...

I am very interested in seeing something that poignantly captures and works off the abject horror of what we’re doing at the borders (literal children in CAGES), especially #ownvoices #mswl

Current adult sci-fi #MSWL

Epic gay love stories in space
#ownvoices stories about women of color finding their place in a vast galaxy
Complicated, morally grey characters

Would love a #NF project in 2020 by an #ownvoices author that deals with cross-cultural appropriation. #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · 6 Dec 2019

I'd love a realistic contemporary #MG adventure featuring African American kids. Like, I REALLY want to read that. Something fun & lighthearted & exciting! #ownvoices #MSWL

OK, so I just updated my #MSWL.

And just as a warning, y'all....it's long.

I'm not sure if it is more or less helpful now...

Jennifer '🐍' Grimaldi @JA_Grimaldi · 10 Nov 2019

*romance* I love love 😭. I'm looking for own voices, fluff, every trope in the book (slow burns! enemies-to-lovers! trapped somewhere overnight & it's COLD & they have to HUDDLE omgomg) #MSWL
