Children

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · Aug 1

Stories that are piercingly true to their characters, revealing their layers and deepest feelings -- this goes for every category of children's and YA books. #MSWL

In that same vein, I like the idea of a mother fighting through something like that, survival either with children in tow or knowing that she needs to get to her children #MSWL

Multi-layered and culturally rich YA contemporaries exploring family dynamics between immigrant parents and their first generation children, please. #MSWL

Dear world, I would love to see more children's books with drag queens. In YA, MG, even picture books. I want it all! Please and thank you! #MSWL

Do you have a novel or reported nonfiction on the things I can't stop thinking about, like Morgellons, the Tamam Shud case, the Voynich manuscript, Hinterkaifeck, and the Sodder children? Gimme. ESPECIALLY if it's a novel inspired by Jestyn. Please. #MSWL

Updated my #MSWL page: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/jill…
I am currently looking:
Children's: PB, MG, YA Fiction and Non-Fiction
Adult: Non-Fiction only. Open to almost anything but author must have a platform, be it as a subject matter expert and/or an online following.

#MSWL An intersectional group of gfs (h.s.? middle?) organize to save the world (from climate change? patriarchy? prejudice? politics? all?) but stumble on and use their diverse intelligence, wit, and wisdom to solve all sorts of mysteries on the road to social justice.

I want more #poc authors who write children's books in my inbox, please!!! #MSWL

I would also like to see psychological suspense/thrillers with children, but not YA. I want adult stories of parents or something and children. #MSWL

#MSWL children's chapter books ages 7-9 (with a series in mind), very boy- or girl-centric. For Boys: Maybe something about a boy who considers himself a "Bugologist" & shrinks down to bug size to go on adventures. For girls: A story about a magical doll house that comes to life?
