I’ll be coming through queries this week and I REALLY REALLY REALLY NEED a contemporary please. No rich kids, no white suburbia. Forget the standard girl-meets-boy.

I want the mother/daughter dynamic of EMERGENCY CONTACT. A black/POC Kara Thomas. A raunchier-voiced rom-com #mswl

I would love to see more interracial couples with a non-white SO in YA! #MSWL

If there's any YA out there framed around the circumstances of Beware The Slenderman Documentary, I am ALL ears #mswl

The Evolution of Mellie #mswl *omg where are all the decent Mellie gifs*

I have fantasy overload, so I'm really interested in contemporary/real world grounded speculative stories right now! #mswl

Rebecca Schaeffer @rrschaeffer

I just scrolled through my feed and started seeing editors and agents asking for vampires and please

Please let this happen

Please bring back vampires

Just realized I haven’t made this clear, but I am SO. VERY. INTO. VAMPIRES.

Give me a Blade.
Give me a Louis.
Give me a little child whose ceaseless hunger leads to bloodbaths, ok.

I am ashamed to say that it never occurred to me to want "black swan but w/figure skaters" until @thedaysbetween and I am totally ashamed. Y'all this is a #MSWL call!

✨also it's gotta be full on queer

YA writers, I just want a contemporary that captures the mood, tone, and heart @HayleyKiyoko latest single #Curious.

MUST have a happy ending for the MC: romantically or not! 🌸 #mswl
