I also reallllllly want to see nonfiction. Again, MG to adult. I love memoir. I'm also into intriguing takes on history and science, anything to do with the arts or pop culture. #MSWL

WHAT. ELSE. I want more MG and more adult. I'm hungriest in these areas because it's what I see less often than YA. In the MG space, I want stories I haven't heard before and voices I haven't seen before. Which is BROAD but basically means: I want all of it. #MSWL

And that’s just a few ideas off the top of my head. I’m always looking for MG, YA, and adult, and I’d love to find something that knocks me out! Happy new year! #MSWL

Broader #MSWL: fantasy whose settings are non-Western analogs. Funny as hell MG. Dark comedy for any age.
