Lauren’s The Worst (preorder Now💁🏻♀️)
Rebecca Barrow @RebeccaKBarrowbeen thinking for a while how.........interesting it is that abortion books are not deemed to be Important in the way that many other social justice issue books are
Okay. If you identify as a woman and are writing a YA that involves abortion (specifically from the POV of the girl having the abortion) please send it my way. #mswl
Ayana Gray @AyanaGrayHonestly:
1) This is a MOOD.
2) I really want a YA fantasy with girls of color training to be badasses inspired by this.
TLDR: I WILL ALWAYS STAN GIRLS WITH WEAPONS. #BlackGirlMagic #amwriting pic.twitter.com/4kPrupWTwa
