For the record, I always want #ownvoices disabled manuscripts. I am disabled myself and also have a degree in disability studies #MSWL

You know who I would like to meet in my inbox? The modern-day equivalent of the Quimby family. Where do they live? What do they look like? What conflicts are they facing? That's for you mg writers out there to imagine! #MSWL

Speaking of Nightfire, I want your dark supernatural books. Creepy/spooky/magical or maybe magical? Send them to me! #mswl (1/2)

#mswl MG I’d love to see a manuscript about the drama, the friendships, etc., that happen in an after-school aftercare program that’s part of a middle school but not really. A Breakfast-Club-esque kind of group.

I am hungry to buy something that sweeps me off my feet - YA, rooted in contemporary, with a great hook, strong voice, complex characters. Come at me, people! #MSWL

Thinking about some childhood favorites and how they didn't "break" any fairy-tale tropes, but instead smartly used them to challenge readers in this fantastically fun, wry way. Agents, I would love to see projects in this vein! #mswl

Julianna Haubner @jhaubner2 · Jul 25

my kingdom for a hogarth shakespeare/jon clinch-esque series of novels that retell contemporary classics (farewell to arms, gatsby, catcher) through the female side characters' POVs. #mswl

Heather Howland @HeatherHowland · Jul 24

In addition to historical (see my pinned tweet) I’m looking for fresh, high-concept contemporary romcoms for my list. Digital and/or mass market opportunities, depending on author track, writing schedule, and word count. Query + full to my attn via #MSWL

Random #MSWL: I'd love a MG that deals explicitly with periods: the pain, the missing school, gym class, worrying about your pants/your chair, all that. I got mine between 5th and 6th grade at Disney World -- DISNEY WORLD -- and it was a game. changer.

Harriet Low @litwitlow · Jul 18

FaceApp, 23andMe, etc. stealing your identity and somehow forever altering society is the next YA novel I'd love aka be terrified to read. #mswl

I just learned about the power of #mswl hashtag for acquisitions work, and now I mean to use it for our regional trade imprint, Three Hills #amediting HT @savranly
