Nina Strohminger @NinaStrohmingerI asked Wharton students what they thought the average American worker makes per year and 25% of them thought it was over six figures. One of them thought it was $800k. Really not sure what to make of this (The real number is $45k)
#MSWL crossover Non-Fiction re: Financial Literacy & for youngish people. We can call it EARNIN' & BURNIN' and I'm only sort of half kidding here...
I’ve opened to picture books. I’ve missed my PB community. (Go easy on me.)
I’ll be prioritizing authors and/or illustrators from marginalized communities, books with side-splitting humor, and fascinating nonfiction (that’s not a bio).

Sabrina 민용 Pyun @sabrinampyunReinventions of Korean folk tales and/or creating a new story following the folk tale structure #MSWL
Bonus points if it incorporates any of the following stories:
Heungbu and Nolbu
Son of the Cinnamon Tree
The Tale of Shim Cheong
#MSWL Who must I sell my soul to for a fantasy retelling of A ROOM WITH A VIEW? The manners, the beauty, the romance. The whole book (and movie) feels like you've walked straight into an impressionist painting, and I want that but, like, with magic.
rebecca kuss @reebsthereaderi have a new most-hated phrase in kidlit publishing ("too niche") 🤮🙃❌💩
i also have a new most-loved phrase in kidlit publishing ("dark whimsy") 💖🖤🦄🧝🏽♀️
please send me “dark whimsy” (adult & YA); i need more whimsy in my life and the world demands darkness… #mswl
In YA I'm hoping to find:
🌱#OwnVoices folklore-inspired fantasies with lush, immersive aesthetics and series potential
🌱Heroines that are equal parts gentle and resilient
🌱#DarkAcademia fantasies with morally ambiguous, sharply intelligent protagonists
Hayley Steed @hayleyemmasteedMy latest wishlist for exciting new submissions! Though often the best books are the ones that I never asked for and surprise me... Either way, send me your books! 👇 #MSWL bit.ly/3A9VUw9
