This post reminds me that I need one of you YA authors to write a creepy gothic retelling of the story of green ribbon girl. Maybe a graphic novel?!? #mswl

Big #MSWL energy for a middle grade caper about neighborhood kids solving a mystery while social distancing, so they can only communicate through windows and tin cans connected by string. REAR WINDOW meets LITTLE RASCALS. Someone write it, I beseech you!
Laura Sebastian @sebastian_lkI know we're all about Hades/Persephone but you know what Greek mythology couple doesn't get the appreciation they deserve? Ariadne and Dionysus. Girl gets stranded on an island by the fuckboi "hero" who couldn't find his way out of a paper bag and runs off with the God of Wine.
THE LOVE AFFAIRS OF NATHANIEL P meets HADESTOWN just shot to the top of my #MSWL

Dawn of the Deadlines @kendrawcandrawHate when I fall in love with the man of my dreams only for him to insist upon asking about the green ribbon around my neck
Can 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
I'm on the lookout for middle grade nonfiction that specifically explores:
1. Climate change and ecology.
2. American History through the lens of marginalized people.
Bonus points for graphic novels!
Dipping out of sabbatical for #mswl!
First, I’d love to see more nonfiction. Especially interested in ecology/conservation & American history through the lens of marginalized people.
I’m also on the lookout for big-hearted, voice-driven middle grade—with plenty of humor, obv.
