Friendship

Cate Hart @CateHart · Mar 9

I just finished watching The Favourite and I have so many #MSWL wants. I want powerful women in historicals, as opposed to empowered, with power plays and antics, friendships and romance, deep nuanced character relationships and falling outs.

To shake things up, I'd love to see more submissions for friends-to-lovers romance novels - especially full-length (90,000 word) contemporaries. Could be standalone or first in proposed series.

#MSWL I really want fun queer romances. All across the LGBTQ+ spectrum, with smart, fully developed characters, sharp dialogue/witty banter, family/friend/career drama, and beautiful, totally explored settings.

"A modern-day Sweet Valley Twins series, ideally featuring best friends instead of siblings." @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation/

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
