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

I've got a #mswl! I'd LOVE to see a #middlegrade or #youngadult novel w/POC Jewish characters, preferably by an #ownvoices author. Although I'm not currently open to submissions I am open for that. Use my submission guidelines emeraldcityliterary.com/lindaepstein/ & ignore the auto response.
