Agents, a #MSWL for a nonfiction graphic novel: biography or just general nonfiction covering the indigenous and POC climate and environmental activists risking their lives (and sometimes losing them) around the world as they work against corporate interests.
Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitmanRewatching 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?
Also actively seeking Muslim stories, both contemporary and SFF. In particular, science fiction, as I'd love to see stories of POC we don't normally get to see having adventures in the future. Also goes for SF starring indigenous characters. #MSWL
Just realized it's #MSWL day. I've tweeted occasional MSWLs whenever they've come up, so feel free to search my history, but here's the gist of what I'm looking for:
All books must star IPOC
I only publish MG and YA fiction & graphic novels (see exceptions below)
Quressa "Tryna be the Beyanna of Agents" Robinson @qnrisawesomeSpeaking of Shakespeare, wouldn't mind seeing a modern take on MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING or MIDSUMMERS NIGHT'S DREAM in a YA contemporary or YA/Adult Fantasy.
Much Ado about Nothing has been my favorite Shakespeare since the 4th grade. I wonder what it would look like set in a high school. Definitely a #MSWL. Must star IPOC.
Tu Books @tubooksSeriously, writers: if you can write this, this is a serious #MSWL. Must be either MG or YA, could be graphic novel or novel. Or even nonfiction, if you want to tackle the real-world facts of this. #submissions #amwriting #YAlit #MGlit twitter.com/AmazonChique/s…
Totally serious. Preferably POC writers from related cultures. #MSWL
Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitmanI have a hard time telling a good fit for me from a pitch anyway, so check out sub guidelines #DVpit leeandlow.com/writers-illust…
