Send me your charming MG family stories (a la The Penderwicks) featuring POC, non-traditional families, & non-able-bodied characters #mswl

Just RTing myself over here. Don't mind me. #MSWL https://t.co/55eUzh60lP

I would read the heck out of a smart/thoughtful/hilarious YA about a teen whose parent(s) relocate them to a tiny house. #MSWL

YA where the protag doesn't get the love interest (or any love interest) in the end and that's totally okay. Romance isn't everything. #MSWL

YES! THIS! #MSWL https://t.co/Pd5jOaTj6P

I'm in the mood to read a YA revenge story that could also be described as vaguely misandrist. Especially if it's a dark fantasy #mswl

Marm’s Grand Street School became the most successful training center for aspiring crooks in the city. Anyone want dibs on this MG novel?

Somehow it only just now occurred to me that I would really, really like a MG mystery with Dirk Gently vibes #mswl

ellen @ellencormier · Nov 4

A YA about slipping into (or back into) disordered eating behaviors w/o realizing what's happening, because it's not a full-blown ED. #mswl

Okay, so about 70 percent of the editors at this speed meeting event want magical realism. ME TOO. Where is it?? #MSWL

I am one of those editors! #mswl https://t.co/5PEVLbntei

A 19-year-old Florida woman seeking revenge on her ex, set fire to the wrong car 😐https://t.co/lwPyoiHfTa https://t.co/rwvqv5PRVO

I feel like this could also be the opening scene of a really amazing YA novel #mswl https://t.co/PR3fySKGs1

#mswl : a YA set at an all-girls school/camp about complicated & intense friendships, rather than stereotypical "cattiness" or "boy drama"

ellen @ellencormier · Jun 2

Would a YA retelling of WIDE SARGASSO SEA be too niche? #mswl

ellen @ellencormier · May 26

A picture book about pizzly bears that subtly and smartly addresses climate change #mswl
