#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
The Horn Book @HornBook#CallingCaldecott: "History has been made today in that We Are Water Protectors is the first #Caldecott win for a Native illustrator and, more generally, the first solo win for a BIPOC woman" hbook.com/?detailStory=2… #alayma #ALAMW21 #ALAMW21 #alamw @MichaelaGoade @CaroleLindstrom pic.twitter.com/wCjRgfLmxP
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
Cora Harrington @lingerie_addictI would believe literally any story so long as it takes place in a Waffle House. Waffle Houses exist at the intersection of all dimensions. Anything is possible once you step in.
Waffle House as a gateway to alternate dimensions and the goofball teens who meet there is 10000% on my #MSWL
Emily Feinberg @EmilyFeinbergI don't do much YA but if someone wants to write an alien contact SF, I'd take a look! #mswl
YES! Always always thinking about what first contact would look like. Basically, gimme YA or MG Arrival ❤️

This this this is always my #MSWL and also I am here for these Avatar/Korra vibes and eternally here for queen Kelly Marie Tran 💜💜💜
Hi! I’m putting it out into the universe that I‘d love to acquire more middle grade novels! I want to find strong personalities and big hearts, stories about finding confidence and discovering friendship, magical stories, contemporary tales, amplifying marginalized voices. #MSWL
I cannot believe that I am one day away from watching @LovecraftHBO . So I‘m gonna channel this energy and The Secret some stuff into the Universe: Please send all supernatural horror YA that centralizes PoC and examines racism and intersectional feminism via monsters thx!! #MSWL

C.G. Drews @PaperFury"you're not like the other girls," the boy said.
"oh actually most of us are like this," the girl said comfortably as she shifted back to her true dragon form and ate him.
Hello! I am on the hunt for a dark, magical YA that has elements of romance but is more largely focused on Some Grand Mystery/Threat, in the vein of Chime or The Witch of Blackbird Pond. Gimme that spooky, transportive grit, especially if it’s from a BIPOC perspective! #MSWL
