I'd be interested to see a YA nonfiction guide to money that acknowledges the gig economy, high cost of secondary education, lack of pensions, etc. How can today's teens/late millennials prepare for a much different financial reality than previous generations? #mswl
This year, I'd love to see more trade non-fiction for children and teens that goes beyond a traditional biography! Show me science, history, cultural movements, our planet, etc. in ways I haven't seen before! (bonus points if it's a graphic novel!) #NonFiction #pb #mg #ya #mswl
Melissa @melissasee@ericsmithrocks What YA would you like have come across your desk?
When I open up for queries again (Springtime?), I am desperate for some more YA SFF genre blending novels, with the kind of expert world building I've seen in @RantingOwl @heidiheilig and @SanguMandanna's books. #MSWL
Hello #amquerying #writingcommunity - I open to submissions in less than 24 hours! Curious what I’m looking for? A full list can be found on the @MetamorphLitAg website or QueryTracker, but here’s a little #mswl to get you started. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!
Molly O'Neill @molly_oneillThe bravest books about faith IMHO don't demand a certain response or conclusion from their readers, but instead give *the very questions themselves* to teens, then honor/respect the ways in which young people grapple/wrestle/engage with them & make space for answers that emerge.
YA about religion and faith is on my permanent #mswl because faith and growing up are both about Big Questions—finding them, answering them (or not), and living anyway.
Catherine Slavova @CSlavovaI remember after the success of Twilight, the deluge of love interests in YA that clearly took after Edward, but with everything heightened.
I hope that with all the YA authors screaming about Dragon Age on twitter, we see a deluge of Alistairs, Dorians, Cullens, Zevrans & more.
AN #MSWL UPDATE:
I have inherited three middle grades. For a grand total of five MGs making up my entire list.
... safe to say I’m trying to find that perfect YA to balance it out right about now. Keep that in ya noggins for 2019 (but I’m still v much interested in seeing MG!)
