I would LOVE an #ownvoices story featuring a Black Jewish main character. If there's a lot of food involved, even better. And loud relatives. And opinions. #MSWL

Send me All the Queer Things™️, but specifically send me #ownvoices stories where the #LGBTQIA representation isn't "the problem." Love stories! Mysteries! Saving the planet! Fighting evil! #mswl

On the #kidlit side, I am particularly interested in Non-Fiction at the moment. I would love to find innovative pb's teaching approachable science (a recent fave is Cats are Liquid) and stories that focus on marginalized communities from #ownvoices authors. #mswl

I’m looking for YA fantasy that is ownvoices/by marginalized voices! MENA authors, Black authors, queer authors, send me some! I love commercial fiction that’s character driven, with voice that drips off the page, high concept and tightly plotted. I’m an avid fantasy reader #MSWL

As it’s 2021, here’s a new thread of my #MSWL! Of note:

- own voices and stories by marginalized voices are always welcome

- I do not accept pitches or subs on Twitter

- agented subs only

I’m looking to actively build my list, so please consider me! I do YA and Adult

Hey writers! As my QM page says, I’m closed to queries for the rest of the year, and aiming to respond to all queries within the next few weeks with a goal of opening up on January 4 (time and toddlers willing). So, what am I looking for in 2021? Here's a handy #MSWL thread:

Jewish YA fantasy, from contemporary with “incidentally” Jewish characters to second-world fantasy with Judaism built into its bones. IN FACT, any ownvoices fantasy featuring or built around a minority religion (just, you know, be honest with yourself about what that means) #MSWL

Just learned there’s an apartment complex in Seoul specifically for Korean-Americans adoptees to return & connect with their culture/identity and I NEED THIS as an #ownvoices YA novel. Would consider based on sample chapters & work with you to develop it. #MSWL
