Kind of thrilled to be reading a #YA mss right now that's like, The Semplica-Girl Diaries, told from the SG's point-of-view. Hello #MSWL .

Please send me your creepy fables and hilarious quests. The more offbeat, disturbing, surreal, and slapstick...the better. #MSWL

Do you read a lot of Junot Díaz? Jesmyn Ward? If writers like them are your heroes, we will get along. Send me their progeny. #MSWL #YA #MG

Alex Slater @abuckslater · Jun 8

I'm also looking for the weird, surreal, hilarious literary #YA that blends genres and punches guts. #OwnVoices are 🔑. #MSWL

Alex Slater @abuckslater · Jun 8

While these excellent #PitMad pitches are scrolling by, thought I'd re-up the old #MSWL ...
