POC

Samantha Wekstein @SWekstein · 4d

A magic school book similar to IN OTHER LANDS. Give me your queer and/or POC protags, your questions of morality, how society should function, fluid gender dynamics, your charming creatures, painful growing up, learning to belong swoony romance, and enduring friendships. #MSWL

As a Southern person, working at a Southern publisher, I'd love to find Southern storiesβ€”in everything from contemporary to genre fiction! Particularly BIPOC and/or queer southern stories! #MSWL

What are some things you’d like to see more of in books? It can be ANYTHING. some of mine:

- non-binary folks
- bi men
- Black joy
- journey w an animal guide
- less romance
- intergenerational/generational storytelling
- Villain protagonist
- Black thrillers
- elder mc

I'd love to see:
✨ NF pop culture/geeky books from non-white authors
✨ BIPOC & POC fans being passionate & creative
✨ Positive, playful LGBTQA+ rom-coms
✨ Soft, beautiful, powerful friendships
✨ More empowering, playful, joyful stories with BIPOC & POC MCs
