Leslie Zampetti @leslie_zampetti#MSWL I’d love to see some Latinx/Jewish contemporary YA... Or a retelling of Romeo & Juliet with the protagonists both devout but different religions... Or a great MG mystery that more Mo LeBeau and less Nancy Drew & ClueCrew.
Oops! #MSWL Day is tomorrow!
Well, at least I’m on brand. I’m always the early bird! 😊🐥📚

Angie Manfredi @misskubelikcan't wait to write my YA novel where everyone is 14 and in 9th grade instead of where everyone is almost 18 and getting ready for college.
Great! If you’re not already repped, send it to me. Please? #MSWL
Rachael Stein @rachaeljsteinEating chicken and rice from a Chinese food truck for lunch and thinking about how this combo transcends so many cultures. Has there ever been a picture book about the many kinds of perfection that is chicken and rice? #MSWL
Emily S. Keyes 🧜🏼♀️ @esc_keyI like alternate history but why do so many stories involve rewriting history so bad people win? Nazis, confederates, etc. If we can rewrite history, why not give the Native Americans dragons or something to fight off Columbus?
Yes! Yes! Yes! #MSWL
Ashley Hearn @AshleyHearnTHIS IS WHERE I GREW UP. THEY BUILT THIS LAKE OVER A FREAKING TOWN AND SOME CEMETERIES. YET EVERY SUMMER MY PARENTS THOUGHT I WAS STRANGE FOR NOT WANTING TO SWIM IN IT.
Also I guess I know what my next WIP should be... pic.twitter.com/Aq7HhHRQmN
#MSWL! 😉📚❤️ Southern gothic MG or YA anyone?
Derek Milman @DerekMilmanMy 6 year old niece just got in a lot of trouble for some sort of Breaking Bad—Kindergarten—Black Market—lunch money scheme and I need to find out the details so I can write the world’s edgiest chapter book.
#MSWL right here. 😆
Terrie Wolf @AKA_TerrieCapers! Over the top, I didn’t see that coming, who got away with what? Capers. Think Oceans 11 and Oceans 8, Fun With Dick and Jane, or Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, to name a few. #MSWL
I second Terri’s #MSWL - but for MG and/or YA, pretty please!
Carol Nissenson @nissenson@leslie_zampetti The Dunham site says "Closed to submissions." Is there a way to indicate in the subject line that I'm querying because of your mswl tweet?
We are actually open as of January 7th. But please do put #MSWL in your subject line for me. 😊
P.S. When I say I'm looking for historical fiction from little-known times and places, I mean it. World War II? Roman Empire? Western Europe? Nope, nope, and nope.
How about Africa or Polynesia? Far Eastern or South American countries pre-colonization or Western contact? #MSWL
Norma @normajeanesaysHistorical romance with diverse heroes/heroines. I want to know about the Regency peeps of African/Indian/Jewish (&more!) descent. #MSWL
What she said! Regency romances with diversity - bonus points for settings outside of England. #MSWL

I ❤️spelling bees. Would love to see an MG spelling bee. Even better if actual Bee words are woven into the plot! #MSWL
