Lauren Is Open To Queries!
Current #MSWL wishlist:
❤️ YA/Adult Rom Com— high concept and swoony
✨ Magical stories with fun, pacey plots - MG/YA/Adult
If your project doesn’t fall under these two categories but it is still uplifting and joyful, I’d love to see it!
Stephanie Stein @stephlysteinI turned 30 (!!!) last weekend, an occasion I'm seizing to share my #MSWL this year:
- sweeping YA romance
- ✨queer magic✨
- savvy, commercial MG fantasy
- joyful queer & POC stories
- & POC authors with something to say
- emotional contemporary MG
- cozy af graphic novels
Diana M. Pho 📚 @writersyndromeI have some #MSWL asks floating that I'd love to see:
For young adult:
M. T. Anderson's Feed for the post-Instagram, post-TikTok generation
a YA version of The Wire (but with more funny bits and maybe an explosion or two).
a modern queer version of Ten Things I Hate about You
👀 #3 #MSWL
ellen @ellencormierMG or YA speculative fiction that's as sharp, funny, and layered as #RussianDoll. Something that uses the speculative element to say something, not just as a cool hook #mswl
Send this to meeee! #mswl
Molly Cusick @molly_cusickLet's start 2020 off with a #MSWL! Over the holiday I read & enjoyed THE STARLESS SEA (possibly 2019 fave?), GIDEON THE NINTH, and THE FAMILY UPSTAIRS. If you have any YA that's similar to one of these (great world building! fresh voice! dark, pacey, & twisty!) send it over, pls!
110% ditto #mswl
Stephanie Stein @stephlysteinBack at my desk with this #mswl thought from the holiday weekend: I would love a book about advice columns! (Do I read not one but several? Yes. Did I write one for my high school newspaper? MAYBE.)
Omg YA #mswl 😍
Katherine Harrison @KidlitKatCan someone please write a YA gothic horror novel with a simmering f/f romance about the green ribbon girl? I want it soooooo bad #MSWL twitter.com/kendrawcandraw…
YES. PLEASE. #mswl
