POC

Dang it. I’ve watched so many forensic shows even when I find a new one it covers the same cases. 😔 Also: #mswl forensic-based crime/mystery/thriller! Would love one featuring a non-white protagonist!

Reminder that not all work by POC must be weighty, dramatic books. White authors got to write thousands of fluffy books and cash the checks. We shouldn't be appreciated only when it gets dark and horrible.

I so badly want these “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). #MSWL

I’d love more submissions from artists of color and/or queer artists #MSWL

This should go without saying but FILL MY QUERY INBOX WITH BLACK PRINCESSES. I want them across all genres, ages, space, time YOU NAME IT! #mswl

Princess? Not princess? I'm open to it all. No genre is dead.

(But seriously, send my your POC royalty.) #MSWL

Penny Moore @precociouspenny · 17 May 2018

You can send me all of your stories about POC princesses. #MSWL

In honor of the upcoming royal wedding, I’d love to see a modern day royalty related contemporary YA romance featuring POCs in my inbox!!! #MSWL

So I guess I want more books about POC with dual timelines and historical details that teach me something I don't know or don't know enough about. #MSWL

Give me the next L.J. Smith: I want your #YA sexy vampires, your Camelot-inspired witches, your Norse gods and psychic teenagers, grounded in a semi-timeless "contemporary" setting. Better yet if they're POC and #ownvoices. #mswl

Our interests are listed there @ Prentisliterary.com But wave a wand @ my inbox 2day? I'd want some POC, magical funk realism-w/lush, succulent prose that dribble down your chin. Prose like @halleluyang,@chrisabani or Kai Ashanti Wilson. Could list more but not with 140 #MSWL

I want more #poc authors who write children's books in my inbox, please!!! #MSWL
