Dying to fall for a high-concept, unputdownable contemporary. Give me super strong voice. Some kind of mystery to be solved. Dynamic character relationships. #mswl

Agents! I am both in a buying mood AND doing a better job in 2020 about responding to submissions quickly. Send me your YA - esp. stuff featuring characters from marginalized backgrounds, interesting formats, high-concept contemporary. #MSWL

I am hungry to buy something that sweeps me off my feet - YA, rooted in contemporary, with a great hook, strong voice, complex characters. Come at me, people! #MSWL

Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski · 7 May 2019

Who wants to write me a YA novel about a group of female vigilantes who murder men who tell them to "smile"? #mswl

Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski · 14 Nov 2018

I am reading and loving THE DISTANT HOURS by Kate Morton and craving a YA that does the same thing - flipping between different POVs, time periods - uncovering secrets. Someone send me this! #mswl

Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski · 11 Oct 2018

In the mood for a breakneck paced, twisty and quick thriller this weekend. Something like WE WERE LIARS. Someone send me one? #MSWL

Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski · 20 Sep 2018

Someone please send me a YA version of Yaa Gyasi’s HOMEGOING - where the stories are linked in some super creative and compelling way. #mswl

Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski · 17 Aug 2018

I am craving contemporary stories that do something creative with time or story structure, or novels with bite-sized chapters, etc. Something contemporary but with a high-concept delivery in the structure. #mswl

Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski · 23 May 2018

Really craving edgy, messy characters in my YA manuscripts - especially young women who make mistakes and fail and try and succeed. Send me some messy YA contemps, people!

Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski · 12 Sep 2017

A YA novel that captures the camaraderie and female support on @TheBoldTypeTV. #mswl

Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski · 20 Nov 2016

A YA novel that captures the warmth and humor and heart of Gilmore Girls. #mswl

Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski · 14 Apr 2016

I want to buy a teenage version of LUCKIEST GIRL ALIVE. Someone send that to me, k thx. #mswl

Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski · 30 Mar 2016

I'd still love to find a great Gothic horror set in a creepy house (although it's gotta be as good as @RL_Stine... NO PRESSURE). #mswl

Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski · 30 Mar 2016

I'm super into Gilmore Girls right now (duh), so I'd love to see a YA about a close mother-daughter, for better or worse! #mswl

Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski · 30 Mar 2016

Always hunting for great adult (OR YA!) in the vein of my faves - Liane Moriarty, Tana French, Kate Atkinson! #mswl

Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski · 30 Mar 2016

Still looking for wonderful YA and women's fiction about complicated friend/sister/mother-daughter relationships #mswl

Kat Brzozowski @KatBrzozowski · 30 Mar 2016

I always love books set in New England (see previous tweet re: @Lexa_Hillyer's PROOF OF FOREVER, set in NH) because I'm from there! #mswl
