#mswl MG or YA NF on "lies" taught in schools (particularly interested in the Civil War, myself. Immigration also a good topic). In honor of James Loewen.

The Olympics have reminded me. I always want GIRLS in sports. Especially in #MG. #YA okay too. Wacky teams are even better, like "the Breakaways". Maybe the kid isn't "good" but really likes it anyway? Just spitballin'. #mswl

My MerMay #mswl: adorable PB with synchronized swimming mermaids. Adult feminist horror about douchebags who go on boys’ fishing trip and scary mermaid who hunts them. That is all.

And, like everyone other publishing person in the world, I would like more graphic novels. (There were two I was very excited about that went to other agents. Sad trombone.) Particularly about MG kids doing fun things? This is vague. #mswl

Not those "episode of the week", let's learn to be nice to people who have disabilities. I want the cool fun stuff they get to do after people stop being jerks! #mswl This also applies for POC, LGBTQIA and other groups that usually have "issue books." JOY BOOKS.

I guess I should post some #MSWL? I'm still a bit ~fragile~ since I'm having a lot of symptoms from my chronic illness. What I want is to find something joyous in my inbox. Especially, I was thinking last night, about people with disabilities or illness.

As promised, I am opening to queries again today. QueryManager.com/EmilyKeyes I hope I'm not jinxing it by opening before the ceremony. But I am feeling hopeful and it's been awhile.

Why some of Kamala Harris' biggest fans are in Canada mercurynews.com/2019/05/07/kam… via @mercnews @boogiedownbooks pointed me to this article about teen Kamala's protest with her sister. Ooh. I love teen activists. #MSWL

I kind of want a YA about a Claudia Conway figure? Her dad is part of the Lincoln Project and her mom works for the White House. She is whistle blowing. Throw in a love interest from the opposite side of the aisle and it's a novel. #mswl

Students reporting unsafe conditions at their school, and fighting the administration is my new #mswl. Not necessarily COVID

Watching the History Channel show ALONE. Reminds me I still looking for a female survival story (MG preferable but YA also maybe). Like MY SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN or HATCHET. #mswl
