Imagine if you could physically feel what other people felt. It could be connecting and isolating, all at once.… https://t.co/kpqWEtrFtR

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

who wants to write me a YA novel about friendship forged through fandom. caveat: it has to be called "Stan By Me." #mswl

Happy Nellie Bly's Birthday! Send me all your "nosy kids make great investigative journalists" manuscripts #mswl

advertisers keep trying to sell me things when all I really want is a spooky Victorian boarding school and a mystery to solve.

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?
