In a poem, @Danez_Smif said, "there are no amber alerts for the amber-skinned girls." And now, I desperately need a badass thriller/suspense with POC about this. #MSWL

2. In #YA #SFF I'd like to see ensemble pieces with diverse representation. #LGBTQ & #POC in particular. Want to see comps like FOUR DEAD QUEENS/EMBER IN THE ASHES/RED QUEEN /Lunar Chronicles #MSWL

chatting panels w/the brilliant @CarolinePerny and it occurs to me I crave a WOC take on the basic Hulk trope that plays with how complicated it is to be angry as a WOC, especially a BWOC. that gives permission for fury & recognizes that yeah, you're always fucking angry. #MSWL

#MSWL LATINX VAMPIRES! (would be great if the author used latinx cultural connection to death as an element of the story). #POC.

Book twitter! I'm looking at my list for 2020 and I'd LOVEEEE a fluffy, happy, fun, winter-y (holiday?!?) romantic comedy by an author of color, featuring main characters of color! If you are writing this now... please send it to me at @avonbooks!!! #mswl #romancelandia

"Fluffy YA books by POC and LGBTQ+ writers. As much as I love angst and think “issue books” are super important, I also love ridiculously fun stories that make readers feel good about life (including their identities)." @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation/

#OwnVoices writers and illustrators, especially POC creators, please send me your work! I’m very eager to see and would especially love to see stories, and writers, based in Africa. #MSWL

Hello hello, I am very much seeking a YA novel like Darius the Great Is Not Okay that centers on queer WoC #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · Mar 19

When I open in April, as always, I encourage #ownvoices submissions of YA and MG by #POC and #LGBTQ+ I will not be open to picture book submissions. #MSWL

Me reading a query that promises a YA thriller, blending humor and horror, from a POC, and comps brand new media, and shows engagement with the convo within contemporary teen lit. #MSWL
