I would love to find more authors who can write about immigration (whether US or European) from an authentic POV. The painful experience of being considered "other" in some way. Fiction or NF. #MSWL

I love @lynnweingarten’s YA. Dark, twisty, sexy, stylish, lean in the writing. Totally my #MSWL - I adore suspenseful stories with fresh twists & cool structures/POVs.

Read this on my flight yesterday & loved it. Like The Science of Breakable Things, this kind of smart, perceptive, funny, poignant MG is top of my #MSWL. Thanks @CarolineAbbey!

I love the novels of @NicolaYoon & @jenniferniven. Smart, contemporary, emotionally powerful. If you're writing in this vein & have a new concept, a strong voice, do send me a query. #MSWL

My #MSWL in MG or YA? A memorable voice. A fresh concept. A pitch that hooks, and writing that grips. Genre? I'm always open on that.

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

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

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 17 Mar 2017

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

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 8 Feb 2017

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

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 8 Feb 2017

Always keen to see unique YA fantasy derived from other cultures/mythologies. #MSWL

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 8 Feb 2017

I love interesting structures, perspectives, innovative ways of telling stories, which lead us to see the world in a new way. #MSWL

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 8 Feb 2017

My fave YA recently? THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR by @NicolaYoon. Love smart, diverse, new ways of portraying teen journey. #MSWL

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 8 Feb 2017

I'd love to find more rich, warm, layered, heartfelt MG - it's my sweet spot! Must have great hook, voice, memorable characters. #MSWL

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL A Middle Eastern writer, either fiction or non-fic, who can powerfully depict that part of the world..

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 4 Nov 2016

Always seeking YA fantasy that has roots in another culture (non Anglo-Saxon). Must be rich & different. #MSWL

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 4 Nov 2016

Wd also love to find authors with backgrounds in Scandinavia/Nordic countries or France who can write gr8 fiction evoking place/time. #MSWL.

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 4 Nov 2016

Renewing my call for a Cambodian writer . . . MG, YA? I'm interested in anything/everything.#MSWL

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