Katherine Locke @BibliogatoAnd how does #DiverseJewishKidLit play into #futureofJewishbooks? I'd like to see more books by Jews of color, more books by observant Jews published in the mainstream, and more books about Jews. In general. Where we aren't dying. *extremely pointed look at YA publishing*
Yes please #mswl
Since I'm caught up on queries and subs to Jan 11th, I will take this time to say that for 2019, I'm on a major hunt for some diverse YA (in any genre). It's my #1 goal this year to find some books like those by Samira Ahmed & Jason Reynolds, or Neal Shusterman & Marie Lu #MSWL
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife(Last tweet didn't make sense cause lack of food) BUT What I meant to say was we don't live removed from our actions. We are interconnected. So what does that mean for the next generation? How do they grapple with their history? How do they move society forward?
History is doomed to repeat itself if we don't learn from our actions. And even when we do, as a whole, how do we as a society correct the course? I'm not sure what a YA would look like that deals with these issues and themes, but I'd love to see it. #MSWL
Lydia Sharp ☕❄💙 @lydia_sharpone of my lesbian friends just told me about how she was at a Cher concert last night and called it a Cherventure bc a fight broke out but it was ok bc a gay dude stopped it and she's like "I was being watched over by my fairy god gay"
what I'm saying is I have the best friends
and now I want someone to write a YA about a lesbian at a Cher concert who meets her fairy god gay, please and thank you much
I am dying to read a YA romance featuring two neurodiverse characters. I want lots of tension. Maybe one character struggles to be mainstream (family expectations) and another makes it work with no ishts given. Please send this to me. #MSWL

check out my #MSWL for specific interests, but you can submit here for me for YA Christian fiction, specifically genre fic like SFF slanted stuff :-)
#MSWL update! Looking for YA or A: clean Victorian romances; cozy mysteries with quirky sleuths; esp. if you have either with unreliable narrator. Any "artsy" connections would be a plus! Send QL+first 15 pages to email@example.com, with my name in the subj.
Jennifer Azantian ❄️☃️❄️ @jenazantianWithin the immigrant experience, there's so much I'd like to see reflected in all subgenres. (1/2) #MSWL
The desire to both assimilate & hold tightly to your culture, the very real fear, food-is-love, the closeness of family. Of course, there isn't only one way this plays out, & I want to read them all! #MG #YA #MSWL (2/2)
I badly want to see more first or second gen immigrant stories and ones that reflect the multi-generational experience in mg and YA. I want to read about others experiences and hopefully, see my own reflected as well. #MSWL
