What about The Breakfast Club, but in a youth group missions trip/mandatory community service backdrop? Either multiple POV or from the perspective of the self-declared social outcast who realizes these are her people, after all? #MSWL #Christian #YA #Contemporary

A Valentine’s Day #MSWL: grand, complex, diverse, epic science fiction and fantasy—with a fraught central romance that has lasting consequences for the world.

I like to call this list the T. S. Ferguson Is Good at His Job list:… @TeeEss @InkyardPress

LOL! I try. But yes, go read my books (PULP and ALL OUT) and the others on this list! Also, would love to find more POC and intersectional #OwnVoices historical fiction. #mswl

@AuthorLisaDunn reminded me about #FaithPitch coming up. I plan on scanning the feed for any great #Christian #YA especially #Fantasy and #scifi check out some of my older #MSWL

I've loved John Knowles since middle school. If you could call your MS "A Separate Peace" for Christian teens, I want to read it. I'm not sure how you'd make it "Christian," but I work for a Christian press, so I have to have some faith element. Just don't be cheesy :). #MSWL

One specific #MSWL for Christian #YA: I live in a small southern town, and I'd love a narrator with that undercurrent of commentary on everyone else and their "kin" who learns the hard way that the crazies around her are HER PEOPLE. Be sure to include a covered dish scene.

For #contemporary #YA, smart, humorous, introspective first person is more likely to draw me in, but I can fall in love with a sweet, dreamy voice, too. My tolerance for sap and cliche is pretty low, so be very careful with those. #MSWL

I DO love allegory, but I'm very particular about HOW it's done. Rich, gently tended symbolism is a must. Be clear, but not obvious; be original, but true to the source. #MSWL #CF #YA

I love Lloyd Alexander's simple, beautiful characters and the grace with which he treats even his villains, but most of all, I love his themes of honor being found among the lowly. I would love to work on a MS that makes me feel like I've found a new Prydain. #MSWL

With #FaithPitch coming up in a few weeks, I want to share a few #MSWL items...…

I'm just not into angels. Same goes for demons, werewolves, vampires, witches, and memoir, especially when pronounced meh-MWAH. anti-#MSWL

Natasha Lyonne’s #RussianDoll is the darkest, funniest, most comforting show of 2019 so far.

YES! THIS! Also, I really want to work on some speculative fiction that's as sharp, funny, and layered as #RussianDoll. Something that uses the speculative element to say something, not just as a cool hook #mswl
