Is there a way to do an updated EMPIRE RECORDS style YA? Teenage co-worker drama? #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 27 Jun 2017

I'm feeling really into MG/ YA with specific settings these days. Transport me! #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 24 May 2017

Honestly, I want all the queries. If you've got a commercial book living inside your fingertips, send it my way. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 24 May 2017

I'm feeling very into MG right now. Send me all your sweet, lovely, exciting, cinematic, fun, funny, silly, super MG! #MSWL

#MSWL for stories with Jewish characters living secular lives, getting into hijinks, etc.

MG/ YA featuring unusual hobbies. Kids are into all sorts of stuff, right? #MSWL

I spent time w/ my teenage cousins this weekend. They shared fave YouTube vids, which were all really effing strange. So #MSWL for weird.

Office discussion of platonic soulmates (a la Michelle Williams & Busy Phillips, Gayle & Oprah), now I want that book in my inbox NOW. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 16 Mar 2017

Was just thinking about Now and Then, which has stuck w/ me for over 20 years (gasp). Something that sticks to kids in the same way. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 15 Mar 2017

I'd love to see fiction set in the communities highlighted in HILLBILLY ELEGY. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 15 Mar 2017

I'd love to see some more socioeconomic diversity in MG + YA, especially from the lens of healthcare. #MSWL

#MSWL Fixer Upper for kids? (feel free to mock me.)

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 8 Mar 2017

Given my love for @RuPaulsDragRace (and the new upcoming season!), I'd really love some fiction by/ about a drag queen. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 8 Mar 2017

What about YA or adult commercial fiction involving some sort of treasure map? and clues? National Treasure but less Nic Cage? #MSWL
