I ❤️ BROADCHURCH. How did I miss this when it first came out?? It's so good! A YA mystery with that level of ensemble and such brilliant handling of suspects (I truly never know who it is until the 🤯🤯🤯 ending) would be fantastic. Bonus for tight-knit community 💣. #MSWL
Taking my own advice, I am asking for middle grade that will make me laugh! I've said it before, if you've got the comedic timing of Mitch Hedburg or a particularly funny art style, please send me those funny middle grades! 🤣🤣🤣 #MSWL
Katherine Harrison @KidlitKatSomeone please write a YA novel called The Boyfriend Loophole twitter.com/irin/status/12…
😂 Yes, I would love to see this as a YA romance (not gun violence issue book). #MSWL
Maris Kreizman @mariskreizmanCan we please stop saying that diabetes is something that happens to people who are overweight? That's not how it works.
Diabetes is so misunderstood. Coming from a family with many T1 diabetics, I would love to see a diabetic mc in MG and YA where the disease is truly well-handled. Doesn’t have to be the focus/issue! #MSWL

Graphic Novels: I’d love classics reimagined with SparkNotes Twitter energy 😂 Would also love nonfiction w/Drunk History vibe! #MSWL
I LOVE THESE BOOKS. High concept, character-driven, bold, brilliant writing that explores Big Themes. Sentences you want to read aloud to the person sitting next to you. Also, 🖤 the novella length! Send me your tight speculative fiction. #MSWL
Katherine Locke @BibliogatoA Jamaican dog sled team?! WHERE IS THIS CHILDREN'S BOOK, FRIENDS? WHERE IS THE JAMAICAN KIDLIT WRITER WHO CAN WRITE THIS WITH NEWTON?! twitter.com/95hannahlouise…
rebecca mix says drink water @wordmixrrthat moment in the fleabag season 2 opener where everything is vaguely chaotic & there’s blood & something bad clearly happened & you know cathartic pain is coming & she looks at the camera & grins & says “this is a love story” & it cuts to black?
that’s it. that’s my brand
I’d love to find an author who can pull the rug out like this and then deliver on the promise the way Fleabag did in this episode/season. #MSWL
Full #MSWL to be posted this week on the agency's site and Pub Marketplace. But if you have a MG, YA, children's graphic novel proposal, are a PB author/illustrator, or write women's fiction, send me your queries following Greenhouse Literary's sub guidelines!
I love a fractured fairy tale! But please surprise me with something new. And while talking about fairy tales and myths, I'd love a MG fantasy with the cultural specificity and the fresh contemporary voice of Sayantani DasGupta's THE SERPENT'S SECRET. #MSWL
One regret as an editor is that I never had my "kid and their dog" story. It doesn't have to be a dog... but the sensibility of an animal teaching a MG character to better understand Big Truths in a bring-your-tissues kind of read is so satisfying! #MSWL
Send me your great Southern voice in MG and YA! Specificity of setting with clear stakes and hook, please. I loved WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING, great Southern voice and a murder mystery/courtroom drama to boot! How to do this younger? #MSWL
