Raw & nuanced high-fantasy that instead of romanticizing it, honestly grapples with the loss & grief of war & rebellion #MSWL

Yes! This! #mswl https://t.co/NAXwX2rH3e

I'd be really into a YA in which a Rory type realizes that Dean is boring garbage & not just b/c there's a Jess waiting in the wings. #mswl

And not because he's a monster. He's just terrible in the way that so many high school boys / first boyfriends are terrible. #mswl

#MSWL : A Riverdale-esque YA retelling of a classic, non-murdery tale. But less soapy, more literary, and turn the noir up to 11.

LGBTQIA folk/fairy tale retellings for MG or YA #MSWL

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

ellen @ellencormier · Feb 8

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

Now more than ever I want to see picture books featuring diverse characters & non-traditional families #MSWL

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
