#MSWL have a strong voice start to sound the same. Don't write in the "proper" voice for kidlit/literary/fantasy/whatevs. Go deeper. 5/

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Sep 12

#MSWL Most of all, I want to see voice. Whether its commercial or literary, voice will make your project stand out. Projects that don't 4/

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Sep 12

#MSWL I'd also love to see an NF book or a fictional character like ADAM RUINS EVERYTHING. Taking something we know and diving deep 3/

#MSWL I'd also love to see more gut-busting funny--I love smart, witty, clever, but also fart jokes. Ask @jsinsheim or @magicjetski . 2/

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Sep 12

We're always looking for MG/YA in which the protagonist regularly uses pain medication to deal with chronic pain & meds aren't demonized.

Oh, and really good mysteries. Fun capers, or darker, both okay. Full of twists and good characters, stakes, and red herrings! #MSWL

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Jun 13

And send me funny! I want to fall off the couch laughing. Send me the next Georgia Nichols, Ilana/Abbi, Knope, any age or genre I rep #MSWL

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Jun 13

Send me all the books about food, geek culture, intersectional feminism, and girls kicking butt (both literal and metaphorical) #MSWL

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Jun 13

And still looking for the #ownvoices ace/aro deep dive into why our culture is obsessed with sex, love, romance, etc. MG, YA, other #MSWL

Roseanne Wells @RivetingRosie · Jun 13

I would love to see more queer MG and YA books. Maybe a masc/masc lesbian relationship? Breaking the masc/femme dynamic in queerness #MSWL
