I think it's time to #MSWL.

I want all the YA romance. Swoony and sweet, fun and flirty.

Seeing some great #MSWL tweets today from agents I admire. In that spirit, I'd love to share some of mine!

- MG or YA fiction with a character who might become AOC-- that spirit, that drive, that persistence would make for a great story!
- always looking for funny

MG or YA about a kid with an unusual hobby or interest. #MSWL

What about a YA novel involving enmeshment and helicopter parenting? The good and the bad. #MSWL

Body positivity in YA or WF, with a character who actually *likes* exercise! We exist!! #MSWL

Always on the hunt for contemporary romantic YA with a twist. #MSWL

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

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

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 10 Feb 2017

No one sends me MG or YA NF. I'd like some. Consider this my call to the void. #MSWL
