I literally wrote my graduate thesis on queerness and vampires in mg fiction, please send me all your vampires #mswl #ya #mg

In MG & YA, I'm focusing on high-concept contemporary that's sweet, funny, and layered, the kind of book that deals with a couple different kinds of relationship including the MC's feelings about themselves. #MSWL

All of this somehow in a MG romp #mswl

These elements can include character, theme, atmosphere, grit, style, voice, setting, world building.....any craft element that you want to highlight.

For example, "My story combines the humor of Shannon Hale's Austenland with the heart and action of Kenneth Oppel's Airborn in this MG role playing adventure gone wrong" (#MSWL, btw)

I’m really looking to beef up the MG part of my list. Please send your heart wrenching contemporary or fun fantasy adventures my way! #mswl

I would also like to see some heart-achey MG contemporary that doesn’t shy away from big issues. Socially and politically engaged, with humor and joy and hope but also courage and realness and empathy. #MSWL

I want urban fantasy in MG too please! Series potential and big friend groups, family-focused, heartfelt—would love to fight some surprise tears reading a fun, sweeping adventure. #MSWL

For my MG, right now I really want magical adventure! Send me something fantastical and fun, with a great hook, and friendships that shine. Especially if there are any non-human magical characters incorporated in a fresh way. #MSWL

I’m excited to be reopening to submissions today – so send me your magical middle-grade, your groundbreaking YA, your rich, imaginative fiction for adults or non-fiction that shows me the world from a new and eye-opening perspective. Writers from all backgrounds welcome! #MSWL

On this beautiful day, I am realllly in the mood for some LGBTQIA cinnamon-rolls-fall-in-love YA or MG contemporary #MSWL

Having been the kid who always kinda half-believed I was actually a miswired robot or an alien or a changling instead of human—oh hi signs of my MI as a child—I'd love a literary MG along the lines of Kesha's SPACESHIP. Surrealism a-okay 😉🤖👾 #MSWL

#MSWL MG/YA mock trial that turns into a real mystery to solve.

Family drama is the weirdest drama. Give me a middle grade with a family like the Belchers on Bob's Burgers and/or a YA with one like the Bluths on Arrested Development. #MSWL
