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

@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.

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

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

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. pinterest.com/allielevick/ms…

Hey #amwriting twitter! I’m on the lookout for a banshee book — reimagined contemporary, classic with a twist — you name it, I’m in. #MSWL

Alexandra Levick @AllieLevick · 29 Sep 2018

Ex: Bridget Cleary, an Irish woman who had her own businesses and made her own income, whose husband murdered her because he was convinced she was a changeling. I’d LOVE a story about Bridget ACTUALLY being a changeling or witch and seeking her revenge. #MSWL #amquerying

Alexandra Levick @AllieLevick · 29 Sep 2018

I would love to see historically inspired stories of people who were harmed by the patriarchy taking back their own narrative. People whose otherness and differences were what made them “threatening” to white, cis men at their time. *particularly* with a speculative twist. #MSWL
