Likewise, I always have room for more own voices work for children and teens from poc, lgbt+, queer, neurodiverse, disabled and other marginalized authors and illustrators. #mswl

#MSWL a near-future America faces some cataclysm where we are the ones fleeing south to the safety of Mexico (no zombies pls, more real world). Except there’s a wall keeping us out. #POC #ownvoices author pls. Mexican protag dealing w/ US immigrants. Dual POV maybe?

#mswl sweet contemporary romance fiction please. (also featuring POC a plus!)

I'm a huge fan of mysteries & crime thrillers. In response to recent news in the mystery community, I'm opening my closed sub policy thru 12/20 to queries from #POC #writers of MG & YA mysteries & thrillers. Query erin_submissions at emliterary.com. #mswl

Ladderbird Agency @ladderbirdlit · 16 Nov 2018

#MSWL We're looking for contemporary YA, featuring lgbt characters and POC. We look for authors from underrepresented groups. ladderbird.com

I would LOVE more cute, sweet romance submissions with black, Asian, or Latino main characters! 65K or more, winter, Valentine’s Day, or spring esp. ❄️❤️🌸Agents, I’d love to get these as proposals, too! #MSWL #Hallmark #OwnVoices #amwriting #publishing

Rewatching the 90s MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING and what hits me every time is that I forget that the plot revolves so much around the accusation of Hero not being a virgin. The parts I remember are the running around conspiring to make Benedic and Beatrice fall in love w/ each other.

I've often said I'd LOVE a YA retelling of Much Ado, and I stand by that, but I'd love a feminist reclaiming of it, too. That's a #MSWL, by the way--YA graphic novel retelling of Much Ado about Nothing starring modern-day POC teens. What would such a retelling look like?

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 26 Oct 2018

Had a great chat today while recording the podcast, about the lack of POC in YA novels centered around astrology.

I really love those books (ie: Summer of Supernovas), and would love to see that.

I'm closed for queries, but if you're writing a story like this, pitch me. #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · 26 Oct 2018

REMINDER: I'll be closed to queries after midnight EST October 31st. I'm currently open only to #YA by #ownvoices & #POC authors & I'm looking for realistic contemporary; magical realism; SciFi; speculative fiction; romantic; feminist; or Jewish. #mswl #WeNeedDiverseBooks

A Woman Reading @AWomanReading · 26 Oct 2018

ISO of #WOC in historical romance, especially Regency or Highlander, traditional mystery, cozy mystery, domestic thriller, science fiction, fantasy, supernatural, southern gothic. #MSWL

My updated #MSWL is up! Find it here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/amy-… Would love more upmarket/literary fiction from women of color and, since we're approaching Halloween, things with a bit of spook to them.
