Literary Agent at Writers House, LLC. I believe in books. Always learning. Opinions are my own. She/Her.
Erin Hahn @erinhahn_authorI’ve read 3 gooey, out of this world YA romances in the past few months, chock-full of heart, hard-learned lessons & swoons. I’m SO lucky to have this job and to count myself among their numbers. YA authors are doing the work, showing healthy examples of love and I’m HERE FOR IT.
THIS. THIS. THIS. #MSWL
Too often we see unhealthy/abusive relationship behaviors modeled in YA lit without having those behaviors inspected or questioned. This subsequently helps normalize those behaviors IRL. #noexcuseforabuse
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
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
Allie Levick @AllieLevickBecause of that, I’d like to see *nuanced, thoughtful, and respectfully handled YA* that: discusses a friend’s addiction #MSWL #amwriting #amquerying
