Christina Miller @chrissymiller__As I'm social distancing, I want to escape into my query inbox, and decided to do a quick #MSWL thread on what I'm currently looking for:
#MSWL ALL! THE! ROMANCE!
Send me your contemporaries, your historicals, your suspense, your fantasy, and anything and everything in between!
Currently seeking contemporary MG/YA stories with distinct voices, unique perspectives & compelling stories. Representation matters. Actively seeking POC and diverse voice submissions. #amquerying #amwriting #kidlit #mswl
A reminder to all you aspiring #mg authors right now that I am spending this year building up my middle grade clientele. I'd love to spend this dreary quarantine time getting lost in enrapturing stories and narratives. Send me all your fiction, nonfiction and graphic MG! #mswl
Ali Herring @HerringAliThe “rat invasion” part of this story was pretty scary (not intended to be by the author) but still the thought ... unsettling. nbcnews.com/politics/natio…
Remember MRS. FRISBY & THE RATS OF NIMH? I’m not much for animal protagonists but if you can give me RATS OF NY, entrenched societies, famine, turf wars, kings, democracies, dictators, but a FRISBY w/heart & make it a little scary & 3D world building, I might be in. #MSWL
This pandemic is hitting all of us differently on an emotional level, I know, but it's kind of making me crave stories about people worse off than we are... Does this make me a bad person?
Even so, I'd love to see more apocalyptic survival stories in my submissions box! #mswl
Philip Parker @parkerpj01@HistoriumU @FolkloreThurs Virtually unique to British Isles, #Bee Boles are recesses in walls were straw baskets containing #honeybees were kept (before bee hives invented). Mostly from C17 and C18, thousands remain. pic.twitter.com/g9Zdd7WTmI
#MSWL I'm always looking for nonfiction on bees. History of bees. Beekeeping. Beekeeper fashion. Honey recipes. Art featuring bees. You get the picture. ;)
A. 👏 gufeng or bust @anonflailWu asserts that these young actor-prostitutes had a lasting effect on the popularity of Beijing opera, much more than its artistic merits.
As Beijing opera is considered a national treasure, its rise with the involvement of these actors was deliberately obscured by officials
Very specific #MSWL from an OV author: this thread about theater, same-sex relationships, and imperial Chinese politics
