Getting this question a lot, so agent friends: I've been on a MG kick lately, but yes, I AM still looking for (fresh, hooky) YA! #MSWL

8 contemporary YAs set among high-stakes competitions. https://t.co/e1VNpuhA24 https://t.co/FaofAzvOln

Look, there will never be enough of these for me, pls send me more like them, thank you #MSWL https://t.co/BrT6llSvdW

I'd love a YA Fantasy where the setting is part of the magic system and not just a backdrop. Think SCORPIO RACES.… https://t.co/AKQgHp90In

Maybe a YA fantasy about the lowly shop sweeper or something? Give me a literal "nobody" and make her story remarkable w/o royalty. #MSWL

Yes!! A YA like THE REAL BOY or WING & CLAW would slay me!! #MSWL https://t.co/TZ5jrRMeqY

Can I get The Bold Type in YA novel form? Friendship girl gang! Supportive of one another's ambitions! Making big mistakes! #MSWL

First and foremost, I want stories that center marginalized experiences. Stories where being atypical in any way is not a curiosity. #MSWL

Just read this entire brilliant, articulate, incredible #MSWL thread by @agentsaba and send her everything, so I ca… https://t.co/W2FfAsmGRX

I'm still eager to find a STEM-friendly Middle Grade project, especially if the MC is female-identifying or non-binary. #MSWL

First: still looking for the f/f contemp YA of my dreams; funny, warm, layered, & more "coming of age" than "romance." #mswl

In the ongoing saga of me and @bredalot chilling on the exact same wavelength... #MSWL https://t.co/C4FE8qOEEO

Stephanie Stein @stephlystein · 2w

It will surprise none of you that I read a ton of fanfic. Bring me those tropes in a YA romance! Soulmate AUs, time travel, pining... #MSWL

I'm a sucker for gorgeous prose that sucks me in and makes me forget what time it is/where I am/that the stove is on. #MSWL

Literally missing my stop or connection on the subway, not being able to put the book down while walking... #MSWL https://t.co/mTIJ4TilJi

Stephanie Stein @stephlystein · 2w

A YA about a weird, immersive summer job & all the relationships that come out of it. Adventureland for teens. #MSWL

Yes, always! #MSWL https://t.co/lG34gT8k3z

I talk a lot about wanting LGBTQ YA—but lately I'm really dying for an LGBTQ middle grade! Self-discovery, first crushes, family! #MSWL

Stephanie Stein @stephlystein · 2w

A middle grade manuscript that makes me just break down crying on the subway. #MSWL

Stephanie Stein @stephlystein · 2w

Wry, smart, disruptive historical YA (+/- fantasy)! Think GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE and MY LADY JANE. #MSWL

Stephanie Stein @stephlystein · 2w

Asian version of The Golem and The Jinni-esp. if character is from pre-colonial Filipino mythology/folklore. Historical fantasy #mswl

😍!! #MSWL https://t.co/uW5QEoxsI7

Stephanie Stein @stephlystein · 2w

Evergreen: underrepresented #ownvoices across all genres, MG or YA. Identity informs story but doesn't need to BE the story. #MSWL

Stephanie Stein @stephlystein · 2w

#MSWL : a YA literary novel that examines the effects of polyamory on teens and their sense of romantic relationships.

Stories with a voice like Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett (tall order!). I am HERE FOR that combo of incisive humor, depth, & warmth. #MSWL
