i feel like there is all this anxiety surrounding agents' mswl's because i think it can feel like a "skip the line" opportunity, and in some ways it is, but ultimately i think a lot of us are also looking to be surprised and find something in our inbox we hadn't thought of yet.

This applies to editors too: I don't always know what I want to acquire until I read it. If a ms doesn't fit my exact wishlist, a submitting author/agent shouldn't be concerned. I'm most excited by fresh ideas that surprise me. The only limitation is if we pub that genre.

Thinking about The Family Stone (MASSIVELY underrated) and how much I would love to edit a romance with that kind of complex, emotional family dynamic. #mswl

I'm super jonesing for more F/F romance in my submissions inbox right now, just FYI. #MSWL

Happy Friday, all! Excited to say that my editorial #MSWL page went live today! I'm only open to agented submissions, but if you want to know what kind of books I'm interested in seeing, give it a look:…

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

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

i can't believe the american education system led me to believe that emily dickinson was some spinster shut in when she was actually busy writing super gay love letters to her brother's wife

Is anyone writing a YA novel about a queer teen's mind being blown upon reading these letters and then petitioning their high school to change the curriculum's portrayal of Emily Dickenson? Because I super want to publish that #mswl

#MSWL (agented only) female-driven adult fantasy

And so I think I love the web-like drama and very pure emotion and I’d like it intersectional and inclusive in lovely and complicated ways, too. So, yeah, #MSWL! YA, pls. 4/4
