Send me your YA or MG GNs that capture the immigrant family feel of Kim’s Convenience! #mswl

I'd love to find a multi-generational story that completely pulls you. Something that really highlights the complexity of family relationships—all the love and crazy. #a #wf #ownvoices #MSWL

"Commercial/upmarket fiction that handles family secrets/reconciliation w/tenderness like THE MEMORY GARDEN" @kurestinarmada #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Has everyone seen the trailer for *Mary Poppins Returns*? If not, it's an absolute must: bit.ly/2D7ARjL. I'd absolutely love a #novel that captures something of the vibrant imagination, color, humor, and family life portrayed here! #MSWL

Super voicey, dramatic, fun, sexy (or not!) stories that feature a big, nosy, means-well-but-talks-candid Latinx family. If you grinned at that, you know just what kind of family I'm talking about. #mswl

Is it still #MSWL day?

Someone send me an adult SFF novel centering a messy, diverse found family who have to overthrow the empire, or uncover a plot, or fight off invaders—but at the end of the day, you know they’re doing it to save each other as much as to “save the world.”

Meredith Bernstein @mgoodbern · 12 Sep 2018

As it’s #MSWL day, I’d like to find several things in my inbox: hypnotic family saga(multigenerational ); psychological suspense with wit and insight; love story with big emotional twists. And any truly platform driven non-fiction. Send it!!

Amanda is in the Endgame @AmandaIsA_Ram · 12 Sep 2018

Just had a great brainstorming meeting with the gals so, to completely rip-off of @thejumbles: #MSWL stories about death & dying & grief, family, and hope à la THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END and "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World"

Author/illustrator graphic novels for YA and MG. Something fluffy and with a good romance. I love found family stories and kids finding ways to resist corrupt power structures. A unique visual style and a distinct perspective is essential. #MSWL

Alyssa Jennette @AlyssaJennette · 12 Sep 2018

#MSWL A novel--for any age group--about the breaking point in a friendship or family relationship. Tell me about having the strength to end contact with someone who can't be helped/is actively toxic. Relatedly: a book about intentional familial estrangement and its effects.

Stephanie Stein @stephlystein · 12 Sep 2018

Thrilled to see 2019 already trying to make witches happen. Multigenerational, feminist, family-heavy witch book for YA or MG? Do want! #mswl

Allison Moore 📚 @allisonm610 · 12 Sep 2018

And I'm always looking for stories with perennial themes (love, fears, family) that could pop on holiday promotion, like my darling Dad By My Side #MSWL

Quressa Robinson (she/her/queen) @qnrisawesome · 12 Sep 2018

Stories about generational wealth in POC families. And stories about moving into a higher socioeconomic status than the rest of ones family. #MSWL

Jessica Felleman @jmfelleman · 12 Sep 2018

In the vein of What Will Be Wild (Julia Fine), contemporary, maybe magical, adventure with a young woman discovering her family’s dark past in order to break free of it. #mswl

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · 12 Sep 2018

I'd love a world like Fullmetal Alchemist. Alchemy is a HUGE hook for me! #MSWL I also love the family aspect and struggle the characters go through. It's not all happiness but it's not straight success either. Great confusion in morals here

Melissa Danaczko @mad2034 · 12 Sep 2018

#MSWL historical fiction from all around the world (I love my western-front WWII but there's more to life than that!); campus novels, especially about first-gen students; high-concept/speculative lit fiction like Age of Miracles or Station 11; family dramas always and forever

Claire Harris @claire_m_harris · 12 Sep 2018

Would love a cozy mystery where two sisters take over their family’s small-town bookstore and are determined to solve the disappearance of their favorite customer #MSWL
