I'd love a really funny & poignant #MG with POC main protags. I guess a MG version of Dope is what I'm asking for here. #YA, too tho. #MSWL

But a few things I always like: strong women, #ownvoices, #POC, #LGBTQ+; I want underrepresented voices to just be represented #MSWL (3/3)

On my #mswl: MG & YA fiction that handles mental illness & its intersections in POC & NA communities with kindness & thoughtfulness.

One thing I should note: if I say I'm looking for XYZ kind of book and don't mention it should star a POC, it should still star a POC #MSWL

A miniseries based around PoC cowboys. Perhaps members of a ranching dynasty? #MSWL

I'm looking 4 subs by and featuring PoC for *all* series lines. I'd love to see PoC cowboys, SEALs, CEOs, billionaires. #MSWL

Also, a lot of religions (for ex: Mormons) have large populations of POC but are not seen as having POC members. Stories welcome. #MSWL

Also on my #MSWL: other stories about POC who are religious, whether that means Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, and so forth.
