Susan, A Cabbage Man Graham
Kiki Nguyen @kiananguLRT: The tragedy I want queers in the books I rep to suffer are the lovely “my parents/sibling/BFF/ex was murdered and arranged like the town’s scary nursery rhyme” rather than, you know, homophobic shit. Same with racism and other fucked shit. I’d like it threaded, not centered.

write me mg horror based on sam & friends lololol
but no serious, puppets are terrifying, i love clown & clown history in all its forms, it's fascinating, write that scary stuff for 8-12 year olds and send it to me #mswl
Susan, A Cabbage Man Graham @GrahamophonesReal talk - I would be into something in my inbox for kids or teens that, if not actively advocating for prison abolition, seriously treats it as an option and a pathway. Fiction or nonfiction. MG or YA. #mswl
Earlier this year this was just me hedging my bets, but seriously - send me your abolitionist works, I want to see if we can do a teamwork. I'm behind on submissions bc of my health, but trust, I'll read it. 💛#mswl
Alan Kistler @SizzlerKistler@Grahamophones @ahmarasmithart same. I am totally ok with a book or movie that was the emotional equivalent of Great British Bake-Off. No actual enemies, general support, drama is still able to happen. :-)

Susan, A Graham @GrahamophonesOrphan black is so good - like from a craft perspective, I want more media like it. Scenario, stakes, escalation, new scenario - always character. Honestly, masterclass in formula.
Oh uh #mswl I guess, would be smart lol
Fangirl Jeanne polluted the shades of Plemberlee. @fangirlJeanneI just want a Romance novel or movie about a fat woc pop signer having a wild, joyful romance with a queer Brit pop singer. Is that really a lot to ask?
Yeah! #mswl would read, send my way
Carolina Ortiz @pushthepanoramaA reminder to all that I am ALWAYS looking for own voices genderqueer, trans, and non-binary submissions in children’s and across genres #mswl
#mswl I would love something like the brothers bloom but with sisters - jokes, supportive relationships embedded in bad habits & baggage, ultimately love & kindness, heists or heists adjacent adventure? And Rachel weisz’s face. Would be good.
Re: ED I very specifically want a character who is already diagnosed and is not actively dying and is coping while they do Other Thing (preferably solving a mystery but ymmv). DO NOT send me your ED life or death books, I cannot. #mswl
My #mswl hasn't changed - still wanting books about clowns & queerness related to trickster figures, still wanting all types of found families, still wanting MG horror & spoop, I would LOVE more picture book illustrators, & a comedic YA protag coping w ED (incidental, not plot).
Ben Grange @BLGrange@Grahamophones Honestly I am here for a story involving post apocalyptica, glass armies, and chaos.
I've just realized the protagonists I'm most drawn to and the protagonists I've been asking for, especially in the MG space are just Amy March. Bratty, determined babies who don't want to read and are wildly jealous & resentful and full of joy. Send me your MG Amy Marches #mswl
Susan, A Graham @GrahamophonesSometimes I think as the age category gets older, the angst becomes a linchpin of sorts. The what do they want becomes what are they mad about? What are they running from? & then it's harder to find works with joy in that voice. I COULD BE READING THE WRONG BOOKS, please rec? 💛
Anyway, #mswl I guess.... joyful protags, or a joyful narrative voice. I love snark and sadness and anger, but I want this, too.
kaity ✨ @percahliaim haunted by the fact that twilight would be infinitely more interesting if you remove the romance from the plot and just make it about a lonely teenage girl on the cusp of becoming an adult just straight up becoming a member of a family of vampires because they all like her
