Friendship

Marisa DiNovis @dinovisms · Feb 12

Where are all the girls and/or queer kiddos who are really into sports in kid lit? The narratives about relationships with your body and your friends and your crushes, through the lens of your athleticism and relationship to sports? #MG and #YA! #mswl

I’d love to read something with a hate-to-love relationship! It could be a romantic relationship or a close friendship. #mswl

Dear Universe,

I'd like to see some more contemporary MG submissions featuring video game nerds (and tournaments), awesome friendships, and relatable, diverse protagonists in the world.

#MSWL We're actively looking for books for our Teen Crush line with a lot of chemistry and humor. We love tropes like enemies to lovers, best friends to lovers, opposites attract, and mistaken identity.

Young adult realistic stories about female friendships and making your way in the world that can be comped to The Bold Type. #MSWL

I’ve become a total podcast junkie. Would love to see a #YA with a teen podcaster, podcasting sisters or friends. #MSWL

YA Friendship stories. Girls supporting girls without competition, judgement, or stereotypical high school jealousy (I'm tired of seeing the cliche mean cheerleaders). I'm still buds with all my high school girlfriends. I'd love to see more of this in YA #mswl #YAlit

#MSWL Lightning Round:

--MG with a unique hook and a focus on friendship

--f/f YA that explores the lines between friendship and romance

--Adult psychological thriller that *isn't* about a woman who might be crazy/imagining the whole thing

--Adult SFF that makes me cry

I love laughter, warmth, introverts, character-driven narratives, perseverance, being transported to different places and times, gorgeous and grounded world-building, heart, friendship, and family.

Here’s what I’m seeking this year! #mswl scribblesandwanderlust.com/2019/01/01/msw…

2/4 #MSWL Picture books: fiction-only; character-driven humor; quirky & well-developed characters; strong narrative; motivated page turn; heartwarming (but not suffocating); community; identity; friendship; self-esteem; LGBTQ; diverse families and ownvoices; author-illustrators.

How many times have I watched this video?
So many times.
Can someone please write me a YA with this level of friendship and support between teammates?
Please?

Okay so The Descent has everything on my #MSWL for 2019: complicated, dark female friendships, survival, suspense, and a dash of the supernatural. *grabby hands*
