Gearing up to reopen to submissions (possibly in the next couple of weeks). I want to see more Middle Grade and Contemporary YA! Especially stories from POC and non-binary voices. Please no issue books. I want fully developed plots, strong hooks, and nuanced characters. #mswl

So I totally misinterpreted The Wanderings of Dessa Rose to be a contemporary story abt a black girl named after Dessa Rose (badass female slave who led a rebellion) and was going on a journey to uncover her ancestry and heritage. So now I have an #MSWL...

It's past #MSWL day, but I was just thinking of things I'd like to see... (a thread)

Replying to @ThaoLe8

Often in YA the MC is the only bookworm in her circle. What about a whole GROUP of bookworms? Like a squad of bookworm chars? #mswl

Finally watched Your Name after all the hype and I really loved it! I have a thing for soulmate/time travel romances. #mswl

That C. S. Pacat announcement reminded me that I want a YA in the vein of a sports anime w passionate teens & is extremely shippable! #mswl

Reply with the fictional character type you always find yourself draw to (for whatever reason).

Not a fan of manic pixie dream girls but I love manic pixie dream grandmas who are full of life & wisdom & inspire you to be better #mswl

I have a thing for characters who are cursed (ex. Howl's Moving Castle, Ladyhawke, The Six Swans, Ella Enchanted) #mswl
