One thing that I am constantly on the look-out for in my inbox: stories within the Asian American community that focuses on body-positivity, for both YA and Adult. Please feel free to flood my inbox with them! #MSWL
eija sumner @eijasJust saw notes from winter scbwi that there isn’t a place in publishing for quiet stories and that makes me sad. I love quiet stories.
I know quiet stories are still being published, and maybe they don’t do huge numbers, but quiet stories are good and valid stories.
I think I yell about this fairly often on here, but know I am ALWAYS looking for quieter and more intimate stories.
These have a special place in my heart.

Linda Epstein @LindaEpsteinWhat I'd love to see in my inbox: #YA #romcom by #BIPOC authors. I like realistic contemporaries but could be open to other genres, if done well. Queer, straight, whatever. Send me your swoon-worthy love stories. #mswl
I seem to have forgotten to close my inbox to queries, as I'd intended to. As such, I'm staying open until the end of the month. Hit me up, peeps! Check out my #MSWL and/or this thread.
Mara Delgado is lost in a time warp @little_mswriterFor Latinx voices, I mean all Latinx voices: Afro-Latinx, Indigenous, etc.; every one of your stories are welcome in my inbox, if you think I might be a good fit. I want to shepherd more of our stories out there #MSWL

I would kill for a Vicar of Dibley romance. Plus-size female vicar/preacher, incredible cast of characters, HOT HOT new neighbor in the town??? It's everything I've ever wanted #mswl #dawnfrenchmyqueen

Little known fact about me (that often embarrassed me when I was a kid):
I grew up eating venison 3+ times per week. My father was a farmer and a hunter, and he fed our family, farm to table, range to table.
So now, I am always intrigued to receive ag/hunting stories. #mswl
#MSWL Would really love to see a thriller where the person being pursued is just as ruthless as the pursuant. A real "oh you messed with the wrong woman." Has been trained in combat, is a recreational fighter, HOME ALONE style traps—give me all of it. In both YA and adult.
I love nonfiction and want to see all the STEAM stories out there, along with projects about little known history/heroes. I would also love a proposal for a MG book about body positivity and self image. #mswl
