Flashback to @laurenspieller’s #MSWL for a YA Drop Dead Gorgeous that I literally haven’t stopped thinking about since—someone write this!

Here's something I haven't seen in my submissions: a frothy, compulsively readable YA that is enthusiastically & unapologetically socialist. Like, what would RED WHITE & ROYAL BLUE or THE PRINCESS DIARIES look like if they glamorized equality/working class interests? HMU, #MSWL

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

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

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

A ripped-from-the-headlines YA novelization of the #Fyrefestival debacle just shot to the top of my #MSWL

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