In which my affection for Joel Gray only grows...

Playwrights, I am happy to read any Ghostlight YA, middle grade, or picture book manuscripts you write. #amagenting #mswl…

Listen to those lyrics sung by and to a transwoman. The meaning is only elevated and deepened. They make more sense. They meet today. I haven't seen the show as a whole, but I can only imagine that casting people of color does the same.

These choices apply to writing just the same. I am interested in inclusion that is just this purposeful, layered, and (as James Cordon so perfectly says) "beautiful." I want to see a YA with this Seymour and Audrey. #MSWL

And YA with a the high school Darlene Conner, all in black, surrounded by family who doesn't know what to do as she dies her hair in the sink. Not a capital D depression book, but a book about how things change when coming of age doesn't go smoothly. #mswl

I used to have an identical twin brother. Then this happened....…

Though I am not one for high fantasy or SF, I would raise my hand and say "me, me, me" for a YA set in the near future, back on earth that began with this sentence. #mswl

Is it a YA novel that passes the Bechdel test? I'm into it. #mswl
