Some ✨personal news✨
My entire personality is now Turning Red. What a PERFECT film. I loved the kids, Mei and her mum, the aunties, 4-Town, ALL OF IT!!!
Huge #mswl for the friendship dynamic.
Across all ages I would love to see the friendship vibe Otis and Eric have in Sex Education. #mswl
I’m really craving joyful and funny stories at the moment. Would love to see more in my queries, particularly from marginalised voices. Romance, friendships, adventure, all with a side of LOL. #mswl
Alice S-H @alibelleListening to Fearless (obv Taylor’s Version) and it’s the very first time I’ve heard the album - I came to her with 1989 - and it’s an absolute banger, unsurprisingly.
It’s so YA?? I want the book of this album, please.
(Genuinely I really want more romance and friendship in my queries, please, particularly from marginalised voices.) #mswl
Really feeling in the mood for some fantastic MG.
- Weird and wonderful worlds
- Joyous contemporary stories
- Epic adventures
- Strong friendships
Looking across novels, highly illustrated (particularly author-illustrator created) and graphic novels.
I’m caught up on submissions 🎉 If we’ve been talking and you haven’t heard, please chase me.
If you’re writing/illustrating & looking to query, HELLO. I want contemp F/F romance (YA/teen), funny MG series, FRIENDSHIPS across all ages & Eighth Grade as a book.
In 2018 I REALLY want some brilliant MG, tween and clean teen. Great voice, strong friendships, adventure, and a brilliant story. Let's chat if you've got something up your sleeve. #amwriting #mswl madeleinemilburn.co.uk/contact/submis…
Two things I'm particularly keen to find: MG on anxiety (fiction) and STRONG FRIENDSHIPS in MG. #MSWL
