As well as #ownvoices and stories set outside the United States. I want stories of survival and grief and characters who overcome obstacles. Ah, who am I kidding? I just want a good book to lose myself in. #MSWL

Lori Steel (open to queries until May 1) @Bookishsort · Apr 27

In this April homestretch before closing to queries, actively seeking diverse voices across all age audiences. Would love to see contemporary and historical #ownvoices MG stories told w/ distinct voice and plenty of heart & humor. #amquerying #amwriting #weneeddiversebooks #mswl

#mswl #ya #ownvoices gimme all your monster books. Especially monsters based on non-western legends and folklore. The wendigo! Chupacabra! La llorona! I want to feel uncomfortable and scared and uncomfortably excited to be scared

Read the late great Barbara Neely’s BLANCHE ON THE LAM yesterday. So sad we only have 4 of these. I’m going to have to dole them out to myself as treats...

I’d love a contemporary #ownvoices mystery that tells it like it is, just as Ms. Neely did. #MSWL

Dear #amquerying writers,

I'm working from home (as is everyone) and I really need some escapist queries in my inbox. Send me your upmarket women's fiction, contemporary romances, thrillers, and contemporary fantasies (+1 if it's queer, +1 if it's diverse and #ownvoices). #MSWL

I just heard the tale of Mongolian princess/pro wrestler/warrior Khutulun and wanted to use it as a short #mswl discussion. I'd love to see an #ownvoices novel about her, but I also thought I'd explain why this is catching my eye

House-bound #MSWL I’m looking for the next big YA or adult rom-com with a unique, compelling premise and #diverse characters #OwnVoices #MSWL #makemecry

Alyssa Roat @alyssawrote · Mar 13

#mswl I REALLY want an #ownvoices diverse sci-fi or fantasy YA or adult series. We Hunt the Flame? Children of Blood and Bone? Why are manuscripts like this not in my inbox? If you have something like this I would LOVE your proposal in my inbox alyssa@cyleyoung.com.

Rachel Mann @rachelphilippa · Mar 13

More #ownvoices queer and trans love stories in YA would be excellent! And YA graphic novels, too.
