-I've said it before but: Emily Dickinson was queer and I wanna read about it (YA)
- Another oldie: impeccably researched historical fiction (YA or MG) about the misogynist persecution of midwives, esp re: accusations of witchcraft
- Queer friendships

- suuuuuuuuuper gay, well-researched historical fiction à la Gentleman Jack
- messy, unlikable, vulnerable girls who can't stop fucking up (think Fleabag)
- stories that center friendship > romance
- novels by/about trans girls & trans femmes

Good morning, agent friends! As you may have guessed from my #dvpit RTs, I want to see more queer novels in my inbox (MG or YA). I would especially love to work on a book that centers queer friendships #mswl

who wants to write me a YA novel about friendship forged through fandom. caveat: it has to be called "Stan By Me." #mswl

#mswl: a YA set at an all-girls school/camp about complicated & intense friendships, rather than stereotypical "cattiness" or "boy drama"
