I studied journalism and will always have a soft spot for it -- I'd love a fascinating and teen-centric narrative journalism story like The 57 Bus, or a celebration of the power of the press like Spotlight #MSWL

Yes please. I worked for 2 years at a large metropolitan newspaper (as both a reporter and copy editor), so I'd love something with the feel and energy of the newsroom, but in a high school or jr high newspaper (since I only do kidlit). Fic or nonfic. #MSWL

The other day I stumbled upon DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) Twitter, and I would LOVE to see manuscripts and short story collections (fiction and nonfic) from writers with DID. #MSWL (No need to wait until I reopen to queries on this one, but I only rep kidlit.)

A note for writers: I'm currently closed to queries, but I'll sometimes post things I'd love to see to #MSWL because I will most likely forget by the time I reopen to queries. So take it as a "for future reference."

With all of the attention and love that teen rom-coms are getting right now, I'm wondering if we'll start seeing a resurgence of light, fun romances in YA. I AM HERE FOR THIS. #MSWL

Now to get publishers interested in acquiring them...

Oh man, a YA along the lines of W or Goblin would be AMAZING. #MSWL twitter.com/sarahrmccabe/s…

A YA historical fantasy would also be fantastic. Faith (aka The Good Doctor) is still one of my favorite kdramas. Secret Healer (aka Mirror of the Witch) is another that I love. Plus, I've been fascinated by the cdrama Tientsin Mystic. So much fun. #MSWL

ok this is my new fav letter to the editor pic.twitter.com/KGfX8BgZlH

A middle grade novel starring a girl like this would be amazing. Something along the lines of Frankie Landau-Banks for the mg set. #MSWL

Reminder: I am currently closed to queries. I'll announce when I reopen and pin that tweet, so be sure to check this space before asking.

Also, I sometimes tweet #MSWL while I'm on query hiatus as a "for future reference" type thing.

If I was an agent I think something that would be on the #mswl would be a Pirates of the Caribbean style YA except it's pirates from colonized lands going after the British Empire (@ericsmithrocks plz find this book and rep it thank you) pic.twitter.com/ge9r0SeIUA

Replying to @runwithskizzers

For years I’ve been wanting alternate history where North and/or South America, Africa, etc., conquered and colonized Europe instead of other way around. I’ve pondered it but can’t quite visualize the full scope of the differences. I’d love to see how writers envision it. #MSWL
