Dana Murphy @manadurphyConsidering the fact that I basically swindled NYU’s v serious film department into giving me a degree in rom coms, my greatest joy is that this is a growing space in publishing. Please send them all to me. #MSWL twitter.com/bellcv/status/…
And then from there, have them sold to me. 😁 #MSWL
Carole V. Bell @BellCV“Romantic comedies take our primal hunger to connect with one another and give it a story. And at their best, they do much more: They make you believe in the power of communion.”—

Now that we as a nation have accepted that romcoms are amazing, I'm putting out a call: Agents, please send me all the fantastic YA novel or graphic novel romcoms you have! Especially keen for projects from LGBTQIA/POC creators 💫💫💫 #MSWL #YA #GN
See What's Next @seewhatsnextToday production began on "The Half Of It," a modern day Cyrano-meets-Pygmalion reimagining starring Leah Lewis as shy, straight-A student who helps the school jock woo the girl they both secretly love. pic.twitter.com/vHlj6sTrvV

ICYMI for the Monday crowd. a day later, any version of this is still firmly on my #MSWL
& in general: more f/f fantasy where the main pairing has a complicated history & maybe they're escaping narratives that weren't worthy of them please
Dana Chidiac @chidiaqianThe existence of this show is the most important news of my twitter hiatus.
Also, when I say "YA about religion" on my #mswl, I mean books that handle religion the way this show does: as one part of the push-pull of regular life, as one part of figuring out the complicated shape of the world
I’d love to get in more Women’s/General fiction! Here’s my current #MSWL: Multicultural stories; Women in STEM; High-concept historical; Millennial characters/themes; or Queer fiction. Can be a combination of any of the above.
chatting panels w/the brilliant @CarolinePerny and it occurs to me I crave a WOC take on the basic Hulk trope that plays with how complicated it is to be angry as a WOC, especially a BWOC. that gives permission for fury & recognizes that yeah, you're always fucking angry. #MSWL
