#MSWL in all the contemporary YA (or MG) I read, I like to see boys being feminists and practicing healthy relationships and consent. ALWAYS queer-positive. I'd also love to see a #nonfiction proposal talking directly to boys about feminism and consent.

Adult historical fantasy (show me a location or pivotal moment in history I've never seen in SFF)
Contemporary YA (show me how powerful& combustible teenage relationships are)
Middle grade sci fi, contemporary, or fantasy (I'm pretty wide open; nothing is off the table!) #mswl

#MSWL I am working through queries received January 20th. I would love to see more of a few things in my inbox!
β€’ YA contemporary. Bring me an up-to-date Girl: Interrupted! Combustible, all-consuming friendships, high stakes situations, departure-from-everyday-life stories.

@bookendslit Sigh. No threats, just threads. #EditButtonNeeded

Jumping on this @bookendslit #MSWL pile of awesomeness! I'm still desperate for my contemp YA updated Girl: Interrupted (NOT SFF for this). Mental health, mental health, mental health.
Also seeking MG SFF.
I'd love to see some new adult space opera with #ownvoices elements!

#MSWL Would also really love to see more picture book and YA contemporary stories written by Native American/First Nations, Metis, or Inuit creators. Authors or author/illustrators welcome.

#MSWL In YA contemporary, I think some authors think "I went through something that was wild and powerful but I was a strange/uncool kid so probably no one else experienced something similar."
Not true! Write that! Wring every drop out of it! Put it on the page and query me.

#MSWL queer elements in YA contemporary always a bonus for me, because I am absolutely queer too. Show me teen friendships that influence us for life. Show me connections that fracture in devastating ways.
I am closing to YA Fantasy & Sci Fi. List is full on those for the moment.

Updating my #MSWL!
I desperately want YA contemporary. Powerful female friendships fraught w/tension & drama. An updated YA Girl: Interrupted. Show me how a peer catastrophe in high school truly feels like the end of the world. Validate those moments & their impact.

Still really really looking for an updated YA GIRL: INTERRUPTED type story! Powerful, combustible friendships between teen girls, and stories that talk about the weird, emotionally-fraught ups and downs of teen friendships. #MSWL

I really love moments when someone you respect makes an offhand comment that affirms your deepest wishes for the perceptions people have of you. It means little to them at that moment, but it fuels you for years to come. Build these into YA contemp stories for me plz! #MSWL

I really want a YA contemporary with a powerful female friendship. Like one of those fast, somewhat combustible friendships that takes 100% of you in the high school years and maybe cannot last forever but leaves that soul-deep mark... #mswl
