i am THIRSTY for some stories that play with visuals. not strictly graphic novels or illustrated #MG or #YA but something that feels fresher in a way i don't even know what that means! agents, i'd love to talk about any ideas you have about something like this, too! #mswl

i've reached the point where i'm itching for a FUN #MG or #YA submission. i'm down for a spiral into something fascinating but it has to be within a plot with adventure, hijinx, but most importantly, i want to laugh and enjoy the ride. #MSWL

Can I please have a #YA with a convo like the one in @sexeducation when Maeve shows Jackson her trailer and they open up to each other. Also i love this show so much. #mswl

Related: can i still have a #YA with a scene where all the teen girls support each other and claim to be the subject of a leaked sext like in @sexeducation? Or a similar female-supporting-female scene. #mswl

I don’t naturally gravitate to teen, but could someone PLEASE send me a #YA of EVERYTHING SUCKS? That scene when she tore down JTT to put up Tori and Fiona posters gave me life. #mswl

Was just chatting with @KeriHoran about how millennials are going to spawn THE WORST kids. Like, imagine being a teen & crushin on someone & being able to creep on their Disney trip when they were 4. & geotag tells them they stood in the same line in Epcot. #MSWL #YA

I would love a speculative or fantasy #YA #MG that is actually contemp--because really horrors exist & aren't theoretical. #mswl

Liz Kossnar @liz_adventures · 12 Sep 2017

A #YA or #MG about a SJW being forced to see their own privilege/nuances-like a griff becoming a slytherin. #mswl

(this is v half baked)

Liz Kossnar @liz_adventures · 12 Sep 2017

Could I get an #YA or #MG Insecure? I'm still reeling from that season finale. #mswl

Liz Kossnar @liz_adventures · 9 Jan 2017

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

Liz Kossnar @liz_adventures · 22 Aug 2016

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

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'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

Liz Kossnar @liz_adventures · 30 Jun 2016

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

Liz Kossnar @liz_adventures · 25 May 2016

I'd love a #YA that treated a human/earth issue like @OITNB handles the problems and nuances of incarceration. Idk exactly what tho. #MSWL

Liz Kossnar @liz_adventures · 23 May 2016

How about a #MSWL #YA about a foreign exchange experience? Either going to another country, or adopting a new person into your home?
