There’s a ghost ship #MSWL story in here somewhere
Just gently cried my way through the end of Alice Hoffman’s The Red Garden, and I’d very much love a multi-generational MG or YA novel that lovingly explores the ties that bind us to our ancestors and our homes. And, well, a little magic never hurts ✨ #MSWL
Just a reminder that I (and many other editors!) are eager to acquire and amplify trans voices. Agents, I’m always looking for picture books, graphic novels, and MG/YA novels that uplift the trans community 🏳️⚧️ No more room in this world or on our pub lists for bigotry & hate!
Joyce Carol Oates @JoyceCarolOates"they" will not become a part of general usage, not for political reasons but because there would be no pronoun to distinguish between a singular subject ("they") & a plural subject ("they"). language seeks to communicate w/ clarity, not to obfuscate; that is its purpose. twitter.com/JoyceCarolOate…
Hi! I’m looking for more picture books, novels, and graphic novels that feature non-binary characters, people who use they/them pronouns, etc.! Shouldn’t be a problem, since kids easily get the fact that language is mutable ❤️ #MSWL
#MSWL if someone would like to write a picture book biography about all the marvelous, kind, beautiful things Robin Williams did with his brilliant and complex life, I would like to be first in line to see it!
JOANNA NEWSOM BOT @jnewsombotLife is thundering blissful towards death
in a stampede
of his fumbling green gentleness.
You stopped by;
I was all alive.
In my doorway, we shucked and jived.
And when you wept, I was gone;
see, I got gone when I got wise.
But I can’t with certainty say we survived.
#MSWL for a YA that carries this same heart

I am SO happy to see more Native representation and celebration!! Agents, I am always looking to amplify Native voices in any genre or age range (with children’s publishing), so just putting that out there ;) #MSWL
