Shaula Evans @ShaulaEvansHow to make a character sympathetic
1. Moral code
2. Active selflessness/other-orientation
3. Victim of injustice/underdog
Totally not the only way to make a character sympathetic, but a GREAT way, and one that I am especially keen on #mswl

Dahlia Adler @MissDahlELamaDear publishers,
Someone please let me put together a Poe anthology. It will be so good. SO GOOD.
My favorite college course was my Poe seminar. YA writers, get the heck on this. #mswl
Kate Brauning @KateBrauningMy next several sets of #subtips are going to be about sexual content in YA! Buckle up, it's gonna be interesting.
This is all ama-a-a-a-azing food for thought, and #mswl to YA that handles these layers of sexuality (or asexuality) realistically!
beth phelan @beth_phelan@petejknapp I think also @syntactics where are you
Tehlor Kay Mejia @tehlorkayI want an anthology by women and femmes of color with essays about writing and craft. does that exist? if not...can we make it exist?
I don't know if I can make the case that this belongs in a children's imprint. But... #mswl
