Are you working on a coming of age graphic novel? Lemme see it! #MSWL #MG #YA

Heather Alexander @HeatherAlexand · Sep 13

I would LOVE a YA about the roots of Hip Hop / NYC in the 70s / graffiti culture, a la The Get Down. #MSWL

Heather Alexander @HeatherAlexand · Sep 1

Please send me your mss about vulnerable / sensitive jerks and a-holes. Redemption optional. #mswl

I have a hankering for a shipwreck / lost at sea novel, but WITHOUT pirates. Anyone got something? #MSWL #kidlit #mg #ya

Heather Alexander @HeatherAlexand · Aug 29

Time for another reminder: I don't represent adult fiction. The categories/genres on #MSWL I've checked are all within kids. #kidlit

I like historical fiction about the civil rights movement but would LOVE to see more about today's race issues. #MSWL #amagenting #kidlit

Sorry to interrupt you but, um, hear me out: a gay Pride & Prejudice retelling

@findmereading Oh yes please! #MSWL

Heather Alexander @HeatherAlexand · Jul 11

Just to be extra clear, the genres you see on my #MSWL page are all in the kids' range. I am looking for all those genres. For kids. #kidlit

Heather Alexander @HeatherAlexand · Jul 11

Send me your pb, mg, ya. But I don't represent adult fiction. #MSWL

Today I'm looking for manuscripts that make me laugh so hard I can't have beverages around. Smart ones, not gross-out or wacky. #MSWL

Heather Alexander @HeatherAlexand · Apr 5 2016

I would be in heaven if someone wrote a "Slippin' Jimmy" #YA . #BetterCallSaul #MSWL

Heather Alexander @HeatherAlexand · Feb 2 2016

I'm in the mood for a modern Miss Havisham. Who's writing about a manipulative recluse? #MSWL #YA #MG

Heather Alexander @HeatherAlexand · Jan 27 2016

Is anyone writing #MG or #YA about homosexuals in Berlin during the holocaust? Send it my way! #MSWL

Heather Alexander @HeatherAlexand · Jan 25 2016

Looking for some #YA that simultaneously makes the world seem bigger and smaller. #MSWL

Heather Alexander @HeatherAlexand · Jan 21 2016

Today I'm craving some really *meaningful* YA, a story that sheds light on a bigger issue through one kid's story. #MSWL

Heather Alexander @HeatherAlexand · Dec 3 2015

If you must write a #PB in rhyme, give it a cool beat at least. Like hip hop or Hamilton. #MSWL

Heather Alexander @HeatherAlexand · Dec 3 2015

Is anyone writing a #MG or #YA about actual contemporary pirates? Like, "I'm the Captain Now" pirates? I'd like to read that. #MSWL

Heather Alexander @HeatherAlexand · Nov 24 2015

This chilly morning is making me crave a creepy, atmospheric manuscript set in Appalachia or the Everglades. #YA #MSWL

Heather Alexander @HeatherAlexand · Nov 11 2015

Thinking about the "Showtime" dance crews on the NYC subways. I love them. Anyone writing a #YA about one of those kids? #MSWL
