Replying to @LindaEpstein

For anyone who doesn't already know me, let me state loud & clear once again: Please send me your #BIPOC #LGBTQ+ #ownvoices #middlegrade & #YoungAdult manuscripts! Look at what I'm asking for in my other #MSWL tweets to see if we'd be a good match. (Ah! So many hashtags!)

The query inbox at @PSLiterary opens on Monday, and I’m so excited to add new clients to my list in 2020.

Representation info and my updated #mswl is at the link below. Let me know if you have any questions.

More books about POC fae in 2020. Can we make this a thing, please? #MSWL

Jessica Reino @JNRlitauthor · 15 Dec 2019

When @MetamorphLitAg opens back up for queries in the new year-very high on my #mswl are holiday romances featuring LGBTQ, POC, characters with disability, chronic illness/invisible illness. #amquerying #writingcommunity can’t wait to see your work!

#MSWL I would love to see more vampires! Send me your PoC and LGBTQIA+ vampires!

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · 6 Dec 2019

I am particularly looking for realistic contemporary and romcom #YA from #POC. I want love stories (straight & not); sister or brother stories; stories about finding oneself or finding a best friend. I want to really feel the setting, too. #MSWL

OK, so I just updated my #MSWL.

And just as a warning, y'all....it's long.

I'm not sure if it is more or less helpful now...

Tara is open to queries. 🔮✨ @Literary_Tara · 4 Dec 2019

OOoOOO it's #pitmad tomorrow! Here is what I'm going to be looking for...

🏳️‍🌈Diverse voices! LGBTQ+, Neurodiversity, POC, and other marginalized communities.
❤️Contemporary Romance in YA, NA, Adult!
😭Contemporaries in YA!

@chavelaque What subject would you like to see more books about?

A PB on the Atlanta washerwoman’s strike, or Pullman porters, or the Chicano rights movement; MG novels starring boys of color doing sports; MG or YA NF on topics of POC history #mswl

Trevor Ketner @TKetner · 11 Nov 2019

#mswl: YA novels-in-verse and bios of bad-ass queers throughout history; and as always more BIPOC voices in my query pile

#MSWL I’d love to see more #ownvoices books about PoC that don’t center racism as the conflict/hook

Do Black writers know that everything we create doesn’t have to be about our trauma? I don’t wanna see another get out the hood, police brutality, abusive relationship, segregation, or slavery story. We deal with that shit every day. TF I WANNA WATCH THAT IN MY FREE TIME FOR

This is why I keep asking for the stories that feature POC and more specifically black teens and adults in happy situations like falling in love, figuring out who they are, having great friendships because the world is already hard enough for us as it is. #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · 29 Oct 2019

Something I VERY much want more of: submissions by Jewish people who aren't Ashkenazi! I want to see more stories by/about Jewish #POC, Sephardic, Mizrahi, & Ethiopian Jews. Love stories. Fantasy. SciFi. Humor. Historical. Non-scary mysteries. Literary. Bring 'em all! #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · 29 Oct 2019

You know what I really want to see in my inbox when I'm open to submissions 11/1-12/15/19? Super romantic, swoon-worthy & humorous YA in all genres (well, not horror or thrillers). I'd particularly LOVE to see stories by #POC & always welcome the full spectrum of #LGBTQIA #MSWL

Tara is open to queries. 🔮✨ @Literary_Tara · 18 Oct 2019

Some ideas? How about:
- 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU, but gay.
- a POC BRIDGET JONES DIARY
- a millennial SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE
- a neurodiverse YOU GOT MAIL
- a plus-size of FIRST 50 DATES (or any book because I need more plus-size characters) #mswl 3/3
