2. Teenage socialites deciding the adults aren't going to solve this crime, so they're going to have to. Gossip Girl x Nancy Drew #MSWL #YA

1. Mysteries based on lost, legendary works of art. I've said it before & I'll say it again: museums & libraries & cemeteries, oh my! #MSWL

I'm dying (haha) for some mysteries! Stayed tuned for specifics 🔎 #MSWL

A M A Z O N S (and/or ancient women warriors in general) #mswl

I know somebody is working on something inspired by Aladdin, and I want it. #MSWL

My medievalist heart would love to see a reimagining of the Song of Roland. ⚔️🛡️ #MSWL

Approximately 85% of everyone I've ever met in my life have sent me this article. They know me so well. https://t.co/kbyb0MfYMQ 👑🗡️

also #MSWL obviously

I would LOVE a YA retelling of the Three Musketeers. Just saying. #MSWL

How about a Legends of the Hidden Temple/Indiana Jones-esque MG? #MSWL

PSA: There's more to history than military campaigns and violence. #MSWL

Oddly specific #MSWL : Is anyone writing fiction about Belle Boyd? Or about Belle Boyd types? I want historical lady spies.

I feel like the dating app scene totally has the potential for a great Shop Around the Corner/You've Got Mail update. #MSWL

Oh! Also, my inbox could use more adaptations/retellings of fairy tales/myths/folklore -- stories we think we know, but with a twist! #MSWL

Madelyn Burt @maddestofburts · Sep 13 2016

Would be interested in seeing MG fantasy/magical realism that focuses on a really tight-knit group of friends: think The Thief Lord #MSWL

Madelyn Burt @maddestofburts · Sep 13 2016

I love groups trying to pull off a heist/mission. Even better if team dynamics aren’t what they seem to be #MSWL

Madelyn Burt @maddestofburts · Sep 13 2016

Definitely looking for some YA mystery -- esp of the updated Nancy Drew variety #MSWL

Madelyn Burt @maddestofburts · Sep 13 2016

If you’re writing about something that happens at a museum or in a library, I’m here for you #MSWL
