After going through the fantastic #DVpit pitches this week, there's one particular #MSWL that I didn't see but am dying to find. I'm a bit obsessed with Wuxia—Chinese historical tv shows—right now, especially Legend of Fuyao. I would lovelovelove to find a YA fantasy like that.

Just watched the second episode of The Passage and man, I would give anything for an MG with heroine like Amy. Or pretty much anything that could star @SaniyyaSidney. #MSWL youtube.com/watch?v=m--WB1…

I studied journalism and will always have a soft spot for it -- I'd love a fascinating and teen-centric narrative journalism story like The 57 Bus, or a celebration of the power of the press like Spotlight #MSWL

Yes please. I worked for 2 years at a large metropolitan newspaper (as both a reporter and copy editor), so I'd love something with the feel and energy of the newsroom, but in a high school or jr high newspaper (since I only do kidlit). Fic or nonfic. #MSWL

The other day I stumbled upon DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) Twitter, and I would LOVE to see manuscripts and short story collections (fiction and nonfic) from writers with DID. #MSWL (No need to wait until I reopen to queries on this one, but I only rep kidlit.)

A note for writers: I'm currently closed to queries, but I'll sometimes post things I'd love to see to #MSWL because I will most likely forget by the time I reopen to queries. So take it as a "for future reference."

With all of the attention and love that teen rom-coms are getting right now, I'm wondering if we'll start seeing a resurgence of light, fun romances in YA. I AM HERE FOR THIS. #MSWL

Now to get publishers interested in acquiring them...

Oh man, a YA along the lines of W or Goblin would be AMAZING. #MSWL twitter.com/sarahrmccabe/s…

A YA historical fantasy would also be fantastic. Faith (aka The Good Doctor) is still one of my favorite kdramas. Secret Healer (aka Mirror of the Witch) is another that I love. Plus, I've been fascinated by the cdrama Tientsin Mystic. So much fun. #MSWL

ok this is my new fav letter to the editor pic.twitter.com/KGfX8BgZlH

A middle grade novel starring a girl like this would be amazing. Something along the lines of Frankie Landau-Banks for the mg set. #MSWL
