YA: Much the same as MG--humor, realistic teen stories, #ownvoices, adventure, sci-fi. Also, love a good teen romance, horror, mystery, but not super-dark.
Children's NF at all levels: curriculum tie-ins, PB bios, multicultural history, science, sports, pop culture.
Jaqueline Snowe @JaquelineSnowe@rwchat I'm a sucker for sports romances, love to read and write them. But I'd love to see the roles flipped and have the heroine be the athlete. #RWchat
If you’re the person writing this, send it to me Jan 2019. #MSWL
For January 2019 #MSWL
Sports. Sports in YA F. In YA rom. In A rom. Nonfiction if it’s exceptional but I’ll be picky here. LGBT sports. I want the female QB and the female cheer captain - OR male QB and male cheer capt!
Cassandra Farrin @CassaCassaCassaI am so appreciative of everybody answering my #MSWL for beautiful, heartbreaking books. I'd still love more of those but I'd also love to see some fun, escapist projects especially in YA.
I'm still wishing for more "girls in sports" novels, too. Soccer? Ice skating? Gymnastics? #MSWL
When I was a kid/teen, I had so many complicated feelings about myself, my body, and my peers in all things related to sports (swimming’ll do that). I would LOVE to find a middle grade or YA narrative that takes on this kind of emotional arc. #mswl
NYT Obituaries @NYTObitsWomen have cleared many barriers in sports. But few exploits are as stunning — and shrouded in mystery — as the day Jackie Mitchell struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. nyti.ms/2DsFeVN

This got me thinking can I get a romance sub with a BOSS female athlete?!? Have repped lots of male athlete romances but know the women dominating in their sport deserve love too... if the hero happens to be an athlete cool, or he could be in a totally different field! #MSWL
1. #MSWL -- I want more of what I'm not known for. Past week, I've signed up two non-fiction projects, one on sports & one a guide for survivors of child sexual abuse. I follow sports, entertainment, business -- I and @awfulagent want more.
Hannah Allaman @hallaman13Watched the US gymnastics championships tonight (SIMONE 😍), and it reminded me how much I want a MG or YA (hs or college) sports book. Gymnastics. Swimming. Volleyball. Track. Cheerleading. Etc. As long as it's voicey and character driven, send it my way! #MSWL
One of my favorite books as a preteen was Amber on the Line (by Emily Marshall, part of the Going for Gold series), and Amber was a young gymnast who struggled with balancing school and her team. I would love to see something like that! #MSWL
