I would love a #MG or #YA about a protag obsessed with physics, esp since I know so little of the subject. #MSWL

I went to Catholic school until 8th grade & we had really great sex ed. I'd love a MG like this #MSWL bc religious schools can be liberal!

#MSWL Did u know PR women were sterilized in NYC in the '60s? I'd love a story of a #MG who realizes his/her family was almost halted by it.

Send me your whimsical, your self-conscious, your intersectional, your silly. #MSWL #MG

I'd really love to work on a #YA non fic about the War on Drugs akin to The New Jim Crow. Any leads would be so appreciated. #MSWL

I'd really like a #MG with a Puerto Rican protag, please! Doesn't have to (but could!) take place on the island. #MSWL

I'm always down for puns for #PB but erring on subtle, if possible. More points for hte premise itself being the pun. #MSWL

Realizing my #MSWL tweets are very stream of consciousness today, which coincidentally is something I'd like in #MG or #YA if done well.

Liz Kossnar @liz_adventures · 30 Jun 2016

I would love a #MG historical fiction that takes place in Puerto Rico--or about a family immigrating from PR to mainland USA. #MSWL

I'm also into #MG #NF but it has to be a topic that is hyper interesting that makes learning history in school seem relevant. #MSWL (1/2)

Liz Kossnar @liz_adventures · 30 Jun 2016

I'd love a really funny & poignant #MG with POC main protags. I guess a MG version of Dope is what I'm asking for here. #YA, too tho. #MSWL

I would love a #YA that plays with a format like Ifemelu's storyline in Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's incredible novel, Americanah. #MSWL
