Leon Husock @LeonHusockI'd love to see more books set in a post post-apocalypse, i.e. the world ended but it was a while ago and we've rebuilt, just not to pre-apocalypse standards. @austin_walker and the @Friends_Table crew know what I'm talking about. #MSWL
I want this too! In the same vein, post-dystopian settings. #MSWL
Marisa DiNovis @dinovisms@HannahFergesen I was thinking clear manifestation of my severe perfectionist tendencies, but now I kind of want a YA UF about a badass girl with self-changing body art she uses to solve crimes in dreamscape sequences... #mswl
Patrice Caldwell @whimsicallyoursSeeing several writers talking about their fear that their queer girl books won’t sell and how that’s stopping them. Please write these stories, find agents, etc. who will champion them. I certainly want to see them and I know SO MANY other editors who do as well. Please 💕🙏🏾
Hi I am an agent who 200% wants these books #MSWL

I have been asking for something like this for a while now- help us out, writers! #MSWL
Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen#MSWL: Lyrical, gorgeously-written YA fantasy with lush worldbuilding and fascinating magic that can be comped to the masterpiece that is #StrangetheDreamer. twitter.com/Brian_Geffen/s…
Books like this are perennially on my #MSWL
Magic Realism Bot @MagicRealismBotA 12th century notebook describes a universe where misogyny does not exist.
Okay well THIS kind of feminist utopia is one I can get behind. The story of the person who finds this notebook is totally on my #MSWL
rachel syme @rachsymeif you are a writer looking for a new story or book project or thread to pull: let me suggest that you get ambitious about looking backwards for the women no one is talking about, whose stories have been obscured, twisted, forgotten, or told through a gaze that wasn't their own
These stories are on my perennial #MSWL - if you need inspiration, check out the #BygoneBadassBroads hashtag - Mackenzi Lee has done so much amazing work in compiling stories of incredibly women throughout the ages.
Trust Black Women and Paid Them Damnit @CreatyveBooksDear YA,
Stop saying certain genres are dead. I'm still waiting for my Black Witches. My Black shapeshifters, vampires, fairies, demon slayers. Hell I'm still waiting for my Black Love story. Also fluffy carefree fat girls.
There's a demand so make it happen
Hi yeah this is my #MSWL
