Funny

[1/2] I watched @sexeducation on @netflix and I’m in love with how tender, funny, and nuanced this show is. I want to see a YA novel with a premise like this. #MSWL

Natasha Lyonne’s #RussianDoll is the darkest, funniest, most comforting show of 2019 so far. bit.ly/2RMqNi7 pic.twitter.com/w7z05HLpC3

YES! THIS! Also, I really want to work on some speculative fiction that's as sharp, funny, and layered as #RussianDoll. Something that uses the speculative element to say something, not just as a cool hook #mswl

I’m in the mood for a thoughtful and emotional yet still funny YA to hit my inbox. #MSWL

I'd love to read more funny stories that make me cackle with laughter.

(P.S. I am not a dainty giggler. I am a witch-like cackler. My sisters make me laugh the most and they can vouch for this.) #MSWL

Opening up our @DA_Childrens submissions for 2019! If you're working on an #ownvoices #MG adventure with an unusual mythology, a diverse #YA that's as funny as Louise Rennison, some ground-breaking children's #nonfiction #PB or ANYTHING ELSE #kidlit send it my way #MSWL

13) Cute, funny contemporary YA romcoms that are driven by dynamic characters. #MSWL

Looking for smart, funny & unabashedly geeky queer romcoms. Falling in love mid-RP? Theme park princesses finding each other? A heel and a face pretending to be rivals on the mat and lovers behind closed doors? Cosplayed Cap and Bucky searching for each other post-con? #MSWL

#mswl: A funny, modern middle-grade voice that reminds me of Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging. If you're out there, email me! ebewley@sll.com.

Lastly, as a PB writer... PBs! I have a stupid sense of humor so anything funny like Elise Parsley or Jason Carter Eaton. One of my favorites is RL Stine’s LITTLE SHOP OF MONSTERS. #MSWL

I updated my #mswl page to give a sense of what I've been reading for my own pleasure... go take a look! manuscriptwishlist.com

Some things I'd love to see come in to my inbox: How about a nice YA beach read? Something romantic & swoony without being sexist, misogynistic, stereotyping, etc... Something fun & funny & sexy! #ownvoices @POC #MSWL

Funny contemporary middle grade with a high concept twist #MSWL

#MSWL YR/MG/YA graphic novels! Great art is the priority: by great I mean clean, expressive, well--and cleverly!--laid-out. You can do a lot with a little, but if you do a lot, those details better suck my face into the page. That+adorable, funny, heartbreaking characters.

Ali Herring @HerringAli · 12 Sep 2018

#MSWL I’m drawn to high-concept commercial fiction with a literary flair! I also love a funny MG voice. I want all the YA & MG (contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal). Yes to spooky MG and coming age. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, (Secular and Inspirational).

I typically go for pretty dark & gritty, but craving some good FUNNY & voice-driven rom com ala TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE, WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR in YA #mswl

Jessica Sinsheimer @jsinsheim · 12 Sep 2018

For picture books: I want something funny, great to read out loud, and perhaps a bit surreal--like Dragons Love Tacos meets Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. #MSWL

Danielle Chiotti @daniellechiotti · 12 Sep 2018

MG that's funny, charming, and full of heart. Oh! And with just a touch of magic. #MSWL
