I'm always looking for YA or MG fantasy. Want it to feel NEW, and to really sweep me away. #MSWL

Many of the mothers I see in YA aren't that great. I'd love to see a book that includes a complex, positive mother. #MSWL

Always liked stories about cloning. If you have an original take on this theme, send it along! MG or YA. #MSWL

Interested in MG or YA that deals with the struggle of faith, what it's like to be a doubter in a community of believers. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · 30 Jun 2016

I'm particularly interested in YA that's about the nature of female friendships. Contemporary, but other genres too - fantasy esp. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · 30 Jun 2016

If you have MG or YA about the early days of TV, or radio at it's height, send my way! #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · 30 Jun 2016

I'd love MG or YA that's set in the 1950s - anything about the post-WWII world. #MSWL

I LOVE DORY FANTASMAGORY with a deep passion. Anything like that: hysterical, oddball, completely hug-able, I'd love to see it. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · 30 Jun 2016

A favorite PB of mine is SOPHIE'S SQUASH. If you have something that's similarly heartfelt and endearingly odd, send my way! #MSWL

Some general thoughts first: I'm closed to queries right now, but if you have something that fits, pls do query with #MSWL in subject.

I’m looking for hooky MG or YA, set in this world, with some magical element to the story. More details on the TBA blog! #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · 10 Mar 2016

I'd love to see literary MG or YA that takes narrative risks. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · 10 Mar 2016

MG or YA where main character is first generation American. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · 10 Mar 2016

Character driven MG and YA. If you've got high stakes and know your characters well, I'd like to see it! #MSWL

I'd love a YA set in 1980s Moscow, against backdrop of Perestroika and Glasnost. #mswl

I'd love, LOVE to find a YA contemporary with female MC, who's passionate about science, math, engineering, ie STEM. #mswl
