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!

I would LOVE to edit a satirical MG or YA novel about student government. Think Mean Girls meets Wag the Dog. Or, like, Election without the gross teacher. #MSWL

Hiya, #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.

I'm not really a horror person, but I would totally dig a MG or YA graphic novel about an escape room that turns deadly... #mswl

Cold weather and cozy, tea-clutching nights are making me crave classic-feeling middle grade fiction ala GREENGLASS HOUSE #MSWL

Seeking strong-girl YA & MG that would suit the tagline:
"She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted." #MSWL
