Rewatching Tortilla Soup and now I want a YA version, maybe with Latinx witch sisters. A Tortilla Soup meets Charmed #mswl

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

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

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

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

I'm earnestly seeking romcom in YA. Particularly ones that subvert common romance tropes #mswl

You know that episode in Master of None s2 where it follows the lives of 3 different people in the same city? I'd like that in YA #mswl

As a fan of board games and escape rooms I'd love a puzzle-y or geeky mg/ya about them #mswl

Replying to @ThaoLe8

I'm also down for geeky conventions as a setting, role playing, cosplay, and gamer girls in my mg/ya! #mswl
