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

Want to make me bite through my pencil? Pitch me THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL meets Hans Christian Andersen. #MSWL

Nebraska girl DQ'd from soccer game because she was listed as a boy. So her teammates cut their hair in solidarity… https://t.co/nfIJw5IcVX

Here the climactic scene of my favorite, unwritten middle grade novel. #MSWL https://t.co/InbiUKJ2sz

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 ...

Please send me #YA & #MG stories about the immigrant experience. Can be set either in this world or another, but make it authetic. #MSWL

Alex Slater @abuckslater · Feb 8

What I wish for? Evidence that youre aware of the conversation already going on. Is your character underpresented in fiction? Send it. #MSWL

Alex Slater @abuckslater · Feb 8

"How about some great comps? Like, 'Atlanta' meets 'Bone Gap' or 'Speak' meets 'Moonlight'? Brave, bold, diverse #YA ...#MSWL...

Alex Slater @abuckslater · Feb 8

"Hmm...I'll also do some dark, literary middle grade...Ooo, is that a retelling? Of the Vanishing Hitchhiker? Throw that on... #MSWL ...

Alex Slater @abuckslater · Feb 8

I love #MSWL . It's like picking ice cream toppings - "I'll take some #YA fantasy based on Pakistani myths...#ownvoices please...

Alex Slater @abuckslater · Jan 30
