Sylvia Liu @artsylliuMicrochimerism: where your mother's or children's cells live on in you & can help or hinder your health. Eg your child's fetal cells can repair your heart, prevent breast cancer & Alzheimer's; your mom's cells can prevent preeclampsia. #science #sciencefact twitter.com/newscientist/s…
This is *wild* to think about... (#mswl nonfiction for middle grade or YA readers)
I'm reading I'M WITH THE BAND on my break, and wasn't prepared for Pamela Des Barres' teen diary entries. She nails what it's like to be young, hormone-fueled, and utterly obsessed.
I hesitate to suggest it for #MSWL, but...done well, a YA along these lines could be awesome.
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!
taylor thompson @taylormegonsince the next #PitMad pitch party is on 12/6, I’ll be tweeting out my #MSWL as Acquisitions Manager of @ooliganpress over the next couple days, so stay tuned! please remember that this is JUST for my work at Ooligan—unrelated to my agenting work📚
Currently battling strep reminds me of a battle won in ICU 8 yrs ago. In the new year, I want to read a YA story about a protagonist that's won a battle. But, the story doesn't revolve around the battle, it's a mere stair step to many great things AND bigger battles. #MSWL
Caitlin Fa La La La La La LaRue @CaitlinLaRue@Nicbeawrites What are you dying to see in your inbox right now? #askagent
Mermaids! YA contemporary stories. Adult cowboy romances. My whole wish list is available on the @MetamorphLitAg website, but I post it here on Wednesdays as well when my query inbox is open. #wishlistwednesday #mswl
Goodness do jukebox musicals bring me so much joy.
Where's my YA novel about one? Teen decides to put on a jukebox musical to get the attention of estranged rockstar parent? Hijinx and music ensue.
Written in the voice of @SarahNSmetana? Thanks. #MSWL
Relatedly, I would LOVE nothing more than to see a YA novel where a young dancer calls out the stereotypical, racist caricatures in THE NUTCRACKER and designs to change them. 💪 If you’ve written that, don’t even send me a sample, send me the whole darn thing. #MSWL #amquerying

Cassandra Farrin @CassaCassaCassaLooking forward to catching up on the agent subs & #DVpit queries currently in our TBR pile! I am reading some truly phenomenal projects right now.
I 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.
