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 YA, I want first job stories, gap year journeys, rom-coms with a big hook, and literally anything that could be comp'd to Sex Education or Never Have I Ever. #MSWL

As someone who identifies on the ace/aro spectrum, I’d love to find a YA project that doesn’t center on physical/romantic attraction. That said, please send me ALL your queer books! #mswl

Please send me all your YA rom-coms. I love competitions, enemies-to-lovers, and quirky friendships. I’d also love to see more of these stories set outside of the US! #mswl

I’m most actively looking for MG and YA graphic novels by BIPOC creators. I’d love to see contemporary projects or stories with a touch of magic. Would also love to see more nonfiction GNs. #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

Specifically, I’d love a contemporary #YA set in Prague (modern day or historical). Bonus points if it includes a love story as beautiful as the astronomical clock tower. #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€“
