Morgan Al-Moor @MorganAlMoorDid we ever get rom-coms with speculative elements? Witches fake dating or student rivals to lovers in a lunar academy?
Always a YA #mswl!
Ely Kreimendahl @ElyKreimendahlwhen I was ten, a witchy girl read my palm at recess, looked deep into my eyes and said “what are you afraid of?” I laughed nervously and ran away but later on the bus ride home I was like “fuck I’m gay”
Mainlined all of Lupin last night & this afternoon, and it is SO EXTREMELY MY SHIT! A kind-of retelling where the source material exists in-universe and the characters are consciously riffing on it? Meta af, sign me up. Also an eternal #mswl

Extreme #mswl. Ashley is singing my song!
9) I am always a sucker for stories with what one agent friend spot-on named "a gimmick": epistolary novels, frame stories, timeline shenanigans, mixed formats, text messages, etc. Yes, I am that girl who wrote her college thesis on frame stories.
8) Yes, I do graphic novels! In addition to cozy fantasy, looking for MG fantasy/adventure more broadly and for moody, literary-feeling YA coming-of-age stories (the queerer the better).
4.3) Cozy MG fantasy that feels both literary and commercial. Think Studio Ghibli, Halloweentown, a touch of Anne Ursu. (I am also extremely looking for this in graphic novels!)
3) High-concept YA contemporary or contemporary-with-a-twist, especially if it comes with an irreverent, self-referentially funny voice. Sarcastic or endearingly self-deprecating humor to the front of the line. I love a protagonist who feels like a co-conspirator.
