Me again. Reminding you @TheTwilightZone is
SO.
DAMN.
GOOD.
๐ŸŒ€

Tonightโ€™s high-stakes thriller in an enclosed space (Six Degrees of Freedom) is exactly what Iโ€™m looking for. #MSWL

PS-Itโ€™s extra fun if you have the context of the old series.

MIDDLE GRADE HORROR

Allie Levick @AllieLevick · Apr 22

One of my biggest, most important career goals is to bring books (yes, plural) to market that talk about relationship violence in a constructive way for teens. If you have that, please know I am here and waiting for you. #MSWL

If you're making light of murder, I can promise your book is not for me. #MSWL #amquerying

I would love a story (I'm leaning toward middle grade) where a student takes on the school dress code. Dress codes are notoriously discriminatory (both sexist and racist) and I would love to see that tackled in fiction. #MSWL

Stories inspired by weird/haunting real places are a must. #MSWL

I am grateful for all the projects out in YA right now that deal with sexual assault, but I would really like to see more that highlight the differences in treatment when you arenโ€™t a straight, white, cis, privileged woman. #MSWL

Just finished EXIT, PURSUED BY A BEAR and really loved it. #MSWL for a friendship like Polly and Hermioneโ€™s.

I absolutely believe there is a way to talk about pain honestly and constructively that isnโ€™t exploitative or done by choosing to make the reader a voyeur. This is always what Iโ€™m looking for. #MSWL

I collected some of my favorite #MSWL tweets into one moment for ease of reference! You'll notice some similar themes โœจ๐Ÿ’€โšก๏ธ #amwriting #amediting #amquerying #querytrenches

Hello. I am not interested in stories where the love interest โ€œsavesโ€ the protagonist. I feel this is a dangerous idea to perpetuate. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk. #MSWL

That speculative book about a woman taking her power back? Using her power to effect change? Send it to me. #MSWL

Catalan surrealist Remedios Varo, Embroidering the Earth's Mantle, 1961 #womensart pic.twitter.com/0Weu5iwkPZ

@rosie_beez19 was lovely enough to introduce me to Remedios Varo's work and I immediately fell in love. I would love love LOVE to see a manuscript that evokes the same tone and surrealism as her work. #MSWL

Oh, yes? Itโ€™s an abandoned location? Itโ€™s most certainly on my #MSWL.

Would love to see some hard-hitting contemporary YA in my inbox! #MSWL

Allie Levick @AllieLevick · 11 Dec 2018

#MSWL PSA: I am NOT the match for a soapy, murder-mystery, contemporary YA. My best friend was murdered and I find these stories highly triggering. However, if you were to look at violence against women in a careful, nuanced and informed way, I could be your perfect match.

Allie Levick @AllieLevick · 1 Dec 2018

Iโ€™ve completely fallen down a #MSWL rabbit hole, but WOW I would also love a creepy YA or adult set in the Crooked Forest in Poland. I mean really, look at that. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’€ #amquerying

I could really use a near-future SF exploration of the Mariana Trench. (This tweet sponsored by my love of really bizarre ocean life.) #MSWL #amquerying
