Disability representation/stories are crucial and a big priority on my #mswl, so I’ll be browsing #PitchDis tomorrow. If I like your tweet, send 30 pages and a query to my submission email on the Stimola website. If I miss your pitch, but you think we’d be a good fit, try me! ✍️

Because I can’t think of anything else right now, DM me if you are a BIPOC or disabled writer and have a YA or MG novel that in anyway demonstrates the importance of abortion rights as essential health care. #mswl

In an author call today I found myself saying “girls need strong representations of female villains, too.” Smart, cunning, complex girl (or non-binary) villains, anyone? #mswl (when I’m open again next month).

Happy New Year! I've updated my #mswl and am open to submissions this month. I'd love to find a compulsively readable page-turner in 2021, anchored in hope. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/alli…

Big Edition @BigEdition

Would you recognize Julius Caesar or Cleopatra in modern clothes?

I'm mesmerized by this. And it feels like there is a good book concept/retelling hidden in one of these renderings. Authors, go! #MSWL

Speaking of #PitDark and #MSWL, does anyone have a thriller as nuanced and developed as the Swedish book/film LET THE RIGHT ONE IN? What that book did for (spoiler alert) vampires I'd like to see your book do for...surprise me.

#MSWL send me your timeless books for middle grade readers that will encourage kids to get off their screens, appreciate the natural world and have real social interactions. (Although a great text message exchange in a book is also fun if it feels real!)

#MSWL I'm looking for strong YA/adult crossover titles with voice, sense of place, and a unique POV. Keep momentum going. Also, please something with a unique format or story structure that will be appeal to reluctant readers.
