Sony’s Stage 6 Films Plots Sequel To Sundance Sleeper ‘Searching’ starring a @CAAM favorite, John Cho. bit.ly/2Z15mO9

In light of this amazing news, I'd love a gritty, contemporary YA thriller that, like the excellent film SEARCHING, utilizes the unique quirks and challenges that technology/social media have introduced into our lives #mswl

An end of day #MSWL: I would love middle grade or young adult novel that takes a no-holds-barred look at colorism in marginalized communities and the damage it does to the people in them. #YA #MG #Children

And I'm still anxiously awaiting a YA inspired by Onna-Bugeisha, the women samurai of feudal Japan ⚔️☠️🇯🇵 #MSWL #YA #Historical

Just an evening reminder that jewelry was a traditional gift demanded by women not because we’re frivolous magpies but because we weren’t permitted to have bank accounts in many times and places and needed shit we could sell for cash in a pinch.

Mind blown. Can someone please write a historical YA about a girl at the height of society who has, like, the BEST jewelry collection ever but is actually secretly hoarding jewelry so she can make her escape from the patriarchy?? #MSWL

just finished my second read of Madeline Miller's CIRCE and more than ever it's making me crave beautifully told coming of age stories of strong women coming into their power #MSWL #YA

Craving a Heathers-esque dark comedy with psychologically complex characters by an #ownvoices creator. #MSWL #YA

I've seen a couple mermaid mss in my inbox but I have yet to read one that leans into the monster angle—give me your vicious, gory, immoral mermaid stories please! #MSWL #YA
