Dr Sarah Taber @SarahTaber_bwwImagine if mainstream sci fi showed us THOSE kinds of futures.
Not a future where Native people are canonically leaving Earth because even though folks who wanna colonize things have ALL OF SPACE now, they still won't leave Earth alone. pic.twitter.com/c98leabvEQ
This is my #mswl for science fiction manuscripts. New Visions Award submissions open in May.
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
Exception: I am starting to seek MG & YA nonfiction graphic novels with specific appeal to the school and library market #MSWL
I love SFF with strong curricular connections that would appeal to teachers/librarians incorporating them into curriculum/pairing with classics
Sabrina Vourvoulias @followtheledeThere are all kinds of Latinos in the real world, and there should be kinds of Latinos in sf. All of us should be represented, and faithfully so. — Isabel Schechter #FantasticLatinas #NeverthelessShePersisted #WomensHistoryMonth
#MSWL: MG SFF, contemporary realism, and historical fiction featuring Latinx kids from Central and South America and/or American kids whose heritage is from those areas. It's a big gap in children's lit and my list specifically.
