Definitely always on the lookout for contemporary. I want all the feels, the angst. In YA, I really want mental health focus on LGBTQ+. DEFF want LGBTQ+ middle grade crushes! GIMME! #MSWL
Currently on a HUGE hunt for historical! Any age. I want lesser known historic events and locations. I want MG trusted to become enmeshed in important/involved moments. I want YA and Adult to show rebellion or championing against the common law. #MSWL
Ok, real quick #MSWL thread that I'm squeezing in today.
Basics: Upper MG, YA, Adult.
DO NOT send me PBs, Short Stories, Chapter Books, Nonfiction, Thriller/Mystery/Suspense, or Erotica
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeAnd finally my evergreen #MSWL right now: mermaids. Evil mermaids. Magical realism mermaids. 13th Year Mermaids.
And Ren Faire contemporary.
And Spice Girls friendship break-up MG or YA.
Here are the genres I'm open to: Fantasy (all kinds), Contemporary, Cont. Romance, select Romance, light Sci Fi, Magical Realism, Historical.
Upper MG, YA, and Adult only
I want LGBTQ+ and diverse characters, themes, and worlds. I want mental health and disability rep. #MSWL
I'd love to see India #HF. Caste systems. Occupation. Everyday life MG and YA dealt with (and maybe STILL deal with!). Also, #HF Australia, too, (though I'm looking for something lighter there rather than, say, the movie Australia). I'd love aboriginal #ownvoices #HF. #MSWL
Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13okay, #writers, I'm gonna do a #HistoricalFiction (#HF) #MSWL tonight. Hold on to your hats! #amagenting pic.twitter.com/h7HmHnCHOp
#MSWL for MG, I want mature voices. Upper MG storylines. LOVE historical fiction for younger characters, contemporary that makes me like who I'm reading about, urban fantasy/magical realism where the child is strong & proud.
Lauren Spieller @laurenspiellerI'd like a MG Fantasy that features lesser-known creatures of myth and legend (be that because they don't figure as prominently in mythology, or because they are from traditions ignored by the European-centric literary canon). #mswl pic.twitter.com/LZ06ndP0L0
Always #mswl for this in MG & YA. Historical fic, urban fantasy, and magical realism!
