At the time of this tweet I have exactly zero picture books about bears or cats. It is a big problem. Let's fix that. #mswl

MG or YA speculative fiction that's as sharp, funny, and layered as #RussianDoll. Something that uses the speculative element to say something, not just as a cool hook #mswl

ellen @ellencormier · Jan 14

Impeccably researched and incredibly queer historical fiction (MG or YA) in the vein of Gentleman Jack, Wild Nights With Emily, and Greta Gerwig's Little Women (let me live!) #mswl

Classic-feeling, oh-so-charming MG family stories (à la The Penderwicks) but about found or otherwise non-traditional families #mswl

ellen @ellencormier · Jan 14

YA where the relationship at the center of the novel is intense, complicated and platonic. Think Amy & Molly in #Booksmart #mswl

ellen @ellencormier · Jan 14

Unapologetically enthusiastic main characters. Give me protagonists who cannot play it cool when it comes to what they love #mswl

In 2020, I want to acquire more books! (It is also my job.) So, agent friends, here's a #mswl thread that I'll add to all year long.

TL;DR: Send me PB, MG & YA projects that have a distinct POV and something to say. Bonus points for queerness & a net emotional outcome of joy.
