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 aren’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 Hermione’s.

I absolutely believe there is a way to talk about pain honestly and constructively that isn’t exploitative or done by choosing to make the reader a voyeur. This is always what I’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 ✨💀⚡️ #amwriting #amediting #amquerying #querytrenches…

Hello. I am not interested in stories where the love interest “saves” 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

#WOMENSART @womensart1

Catalan surrealist Remedios Varo, Embroidering the Earth's Mantle, 1961 #womensart

@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? It’s an abandoned location? It’s most certainly on my #MSWL.

Alexandra Levick @AllieLevick · 17 Dec 2018

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

Alexandra 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.

I’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. 😍💀 #amquerying

Alexandra Levick @AllieLevick · 1 Dec 2018

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

Alexandra Levick @AllieLevick · 30 Nov 2018

Relatedly, I would LOVE nothing more than to see a YA novel where a young dancer calls out the stereotypical, racist caricatures in THE NUTCRACKER and designs to change them. 💪 If you’ve written that, don’t even send me a sample, send me the whole darn thing. #MSWL #amquerying

Alexandra Levick @AllieLevick · 24 Nov 2018

I would LOVE a YA novel about dance that shows just how much dedication and discipline it takes, the mindset that is necessary, while also discussing the privilege needed to participate at an elite level. I’ll be super picky about this as a former dancer. #MSWL

I've been working on this for a while (read: years). My Pinterest #MSWL -- ideas and images that have sparked intrigue and joy and hopes of a story.…
