Here's a new #MSWL for you all: I am dying for a novel inspired by the pirates Mary Read and Anne Bonny. Could be an epic YA love story.

YES. #mswl

New updates to my #MSWL Manuscript Wish List post, full of magic, feminism, #ownvoices , and occasional heartbreak:

Seriously craving some historical MG & YA. Bonus points if it's a less commonly depicted time/place! (i.e. outside WWII Europe) #mswl

Wait, but, #mswl ? Not Millennials, but teens who can be hired to kill an idea.

Ummmmm #mswl

Sitting here getting angry at the idea that bisexuality has to be "established organically" so as to not startle the reader.

Thread! And why I am always looking for more and more nuanced bi characters. (PS, #mswl )

Have I mentioned my ongoing love for slow-burning romance and mutual pining? #mswl

Stephanie Stein @stephlystein · May 15

Hungry for YA contemporary with a strong, jump-off-the-page voice & a fresh perspective that makes me cry or laugh out loud. Or both! #mswl

Literally always! #mswl

#MSWL : YA with the wistfulness and delicate, complex ensemble friendships of Ichigo Takano's ORANGE, which I am finally reading and ~loving~

I am so here for fun, funny, light-hearted romcoms with girls crushing on girls, for fantasy, for high concepts... you get the idea #MSWL

Possibly unpopular opinion: Muslim kids need joy in their books along with discussions of Islamophobia so please keep a balance.

Yes! Always looking for more hopeful, joyful, celebratory representation. #MSWL

Really dying for more contemporary MG--friendship drama, multi-gen family stories, LGBTQ tweens... hit me up! #MSWL

#MSWL I'm always up for a good YA Shakespeare adaptation. Not just the tragedies, either. Comedies, even histories are good.

This tends to result in so much witty banter, which I am HERE FOR. Seconded. #MSWL

My Friday #mswl : a story with an "Arrival"-like twist that unfurls across many layers rather than pulls the rug out from under you

Dear @Tiff_Liao , I'm totally stealing this genius #mswl . Yes!

I'd love more friendship, summery YA to hit my inbox. Think Jenny Han, Huntley Fitzpatrick, Robin Constantine, Dessen, Rowell, Matson #mswl

YA BFFs are always on my #MSWL . Friendships forged between teen girls are so powerful, complex, and fun.
