#MSWL I want to see more YA #ownvoices stories including the mythology of the Americas. I love me some Greek/Egyptian/Nordic retellings, but I'm looking for something closer to home.

Writers, agents: I would REALLY like a quality biographical #ownvoices picture-book MS about Bayard Rustin -- one that honors his integrity & complexity. Hook me up in 2019? #MSWL npr.org/2019/01/06/682…

Correction #2: Middle Grade: Humor--if you can make me laugh, I'll sign you up. Literary: I've never had a Newbery-winning client and I want one. Adventure stories, grounded fantasy (but not epic fantasy), sci-fi. #ownvoices for sure. Artists, MG graphic novels! #MSWL

also: trans & nb leads, particularly in YA. if you're writing them I want to read them! (with particular preference to #ownvoices) #mswl

YA: Much the same as MG--humor, realistic teen stories, #ownvoices, adventure, sci-fi. Also, love a good teen romance, horror, mystery, but not super-dark.

Children's NF at all levels: curriculum tie-ins, PB bios, multicultural history, science, sports, pop culture.

Opening up our @DA_Childrens submissions for 2019! If you're working on an #ownvoices #MG adventure with an unusual mythology, a diverse #YA that's as funny as Louise Rennison, some ground-breaking children's #nonfiction #PB or ANYTHING ELSE #kidlit send it my way #MSWL

One of my #NewYearsResolution2019 is to acquire an engaging contemporary #middlegrade novel, especially one featuring diverse or LGBTQIA+ characters, #girlsinstem, or an #ownvoices narrative. Anyone wanna help me make this happen? #MSWL

Hello #amquerying #writingcommunity - I open to submissions in less than 24 hours! Curious what I’m looking for? A full list can be found on the @MetamorphLitAg website or QueryTracker, but here’s a little #mswl to get you started. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS #MSWL - Diversity in all its beautiful forms. Stories that ask important questions. Neurodiverse voices and characters welcome. Lots of #ownvoices.

#MSWL a near-future America faces some cataclysm where we are the ones fleeing south to the safety of Mexico (no zombies pls, more real world). Except there’s a wall keeping us out. #POC #ownvoices author pls. Mexican protag dealing w/ US immigrants. Dual POV maybe?

1) I always want to see more writers with #ownvoices stories, across all genres and ages. #MSWL
