#MSWL for trans voices in speculative #A or #YA that comps @ryka_aoki's The Light from Uncommon Stars. I'm blown away not just by the voice, but by the originality of the story, the heart, the narrative scope. It's breathtaking. We need more trans joy in SFF. Send them my way.

I really want to see more #ownvoices refugee submissions for both MG and YA. North Korea especially, but also Colombia, the Middle East, and beyond. #mswl 🙏

Anything that deals with, examines, or plays with gender — I want to see it. YA, NA, and A are all welcome. I want to read stories from disabled writers, from queer writers, from Black, Brown, Indigenous, and Asian writers.

I won’t be open to queries til January, but in 2022, I’d love a genre book, YA or adult, that deals with reproductive health—birth control, abortion, infertility, PCOS, just the tough stuff that sometimes comes with an AFAB body—without it being the book’s central conflict #mswl

Forbidden love is a plus! YA writers, I love a good tear-jerker, but also an up-to-the-minute novel that gives us a look at 2021 teen-life, like THE HATE U GIVE. For me, YA is all about the character and their voice. (3/4).

Finished watching Dopesick (season 2 please?) and would love to see more submissions in my inbox on the growing opioid epidemic. It's an important topic and something that I think deserves a lot more coverage in the teen book space #MSWL #YA

I'd love to see more submissions from trans women and trans feminine folks. I'm currently considering YA, NA, and adult romance books. I love fantasy, contemporary books, and women's fiction. I'm not too keen on horror, thrillers, and suspense #MSWL

I’m YA: I would love to see stories from BIPOC creators that explores culture through things like music or food or art. The way those things can connect us to culture and also cross cultural barriers is a relatable way to explore identity, especially in the YA space. #mswl

In YA: I’m listening to Red (Taylor’s version) on repeat—my “All Too Well” ask in the Romance section might have given me away—but a story inspired by “Everything Has Changed” would be right up my alley. Bonus points if it’s set during summer vacation. #mswl

I keep thinking about this article on TikTok and mental health. There's got to be YA novel in this, or maybe a retelling of The Crucible. #MSWL

YA stories that combine social commentary w/ a fresh premise + a killer voice are my sweet spot. Does your story have feminist, intersectional, post-colonial, or environmentally conscious themes? Does it challenge readers to look at the world in a new way? Submit! #mswl (3/7)
