I'd love to see a MG or YA novel based on/related to the Flint Water Crisis. #MSWL

As a former children's librarian, I'm always hunting for PBs, MG or YA about libraries or librarians - the more fierce the better! #MSWL

@susanhawk anything particular you are seeking in chapter books?

@ShanahSalter My fav CBs have truly dynamic characters and are hysterical. All-time fav: DORY. Really want a diverse CB series. #MSWL

I'm a fan of Molly Idle, Christian Robinson & Sergio Ruzzier. If your work is as fresh, original and thoughtful as these, query me! #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · Dec 22

Epistolary novels; a novel-within-a-novel; a journal format; secret letters; found documents – MG or YA that uses these elements. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · Dec 22

MG and YA fantasy! I want to fall in love with your MC, be completely immersed in a world that's surprising and original. #MSWL

@susanhawk Hi Susan, it says, at the Bent website, that you're closed from unsolicited submissions, is this still the case?

@frostedhills I am closed, but if you have a project that matches one of my recent #MSWL posts, pls send. Incl #MSWL in subject. Thanks!

@crazywriter2 I LOVE historical fantasy. Am most interested in non-Western settings, but open to all. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · Jun 30

An American Agatha Christie, for MG or YA! #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · Jun 30

HUMOR. If you're writing something funny - esp like wry, smart humor - I'd love to see it. PB, CB, MG, YA. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · Jun 30

I want to be surprised! If you're doing something different, send it to me! #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · Jun 30

I'd love a fantasy that's based on American tall tales and folklore. YA or MG. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · Jun 30

I'm always looking for YA or MG fantasy. Want it to feel NEW, and to really sweep me away. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · Jun 30

Many of the mothers I see in YA aren't that great. I'd love to see a book that includes a complex, positive mother. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · Jun 30

Always liked stories about cloning. If you have an original take on this theme, send it along! MG or YA. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · Jun 30

Interested in MG or YA that deals with the struggle of faith, what it's like to be a doubter in a community of believers. #MSWL

Susan Hawk @susanhawk · Jun 30

I'm particularly interested in YA that's about the nature of female friendships. Contemporary, but other genres too - fantasy esp. #MSWL
