I know it’s not a kidlit book, but THE HOUSE IN THE CERULEAN SEA cured my reading rut and was a hug I desperately needed. I would love to see something like this but for MG/YA with truly wholesome, chaotic, and lovable characters. #MSWL

For MG, I would love to see contemporary stories like FROM THE DESK OF ZOE WASHINGTON, STARFISH, and VIOLETS ARE BLUE. I’d also love to see more light fantasy projects inspired by non-western mythology! #MSWL

I love nonfiction and want to see all the STEAM stories out there, along with projects about little known history/heroes. I would also love a proposal for a MG book about body positivity and self image. #mswl

All the queer mg and ya stories! I would love to find more f/f first crush or relationship stories that give me butterflies. But I'm also very much open to stories that don't include romance! Overall, I’d like to see more submissions from LGBTQ+ authors. #MSWL

I follow so many incredible bakers on Instagram because I'm obsessed w/ fancy, colorful, and quirky cakes, and it's making me crave a contemporary #YA or #MG featuring a mc who has a passion for baking. Bonus points if it includes a fluffy romance or baking competition! πŸŽ‚ #MSWL

Super specific #MSWL: I'd love to find a fun, high-stakes contemporary #MG or #YA that takes place before or during a hackathon! Less specific: If you have a #kidlit story with witty & tech-savvy characters, please query me. πŸ€“

Like many astronauts, Kalpana Chawla was one of my idols growing up. I would love to find a #kidlit story about her in some way or form. #MSWL #PB #MG
β€œPeople remember Kalpana Chawla, the first Indian woman in space”
