I'd be interested to find a really sparky young chapter-book series (+ a great hook, characters) by an #ownvoices author. #MSWL

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · Apr 13

I love quality writing + strong concepts & hooks + emotional resonance + diverse authors/cultures + cool POVs/structures in MG & YA. #MSWL

I loved the love stories in THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR, ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES. Real, unique, difficult? I want spare writing; a great hook.#MSWL

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · Mar 17

I'm looking to fall in love with a new voice, a new story. A hook, layers, meaning; a story bigger than the sum of its parts. #MSWL

I want more diverse authors. A unique vision, a unique selling point. A great romance? A MS I can spout about joyfully at Bologna! #MSWL

Would love to see anything quirky, uncategorizable, unique. Go for it! I enjoy ambitious writing, even if it's not quite "there" yet. #MSWL

Much enjoying THE ACCIDENT SEASON by @moirawithatrema . Just the kind of novel I love. Great writing, fresh,mysterious, a bit strange. #MSWL

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · Sep 13

#MSWL A great new YA voice & a premise that does something different. Could be any genre! History, magic mixed with reality?

I'm looking for a voice. A standout voice. Sure, a good plot; but a plot delivered with VOICE! It's top of the reasons I request MSS. #MSWL
