#MSWL. Still looking for great MG projects, especially contemporary stories that foster kindness, empathy and understanding. Especially drawn to stories with strong female lead characters.

It brings me so much joy to see the youth and their gifts keeping musicianship alive. Love and respect.⁣ pic.twitter.com/d0GQ7Yck19

❤️ somewhere in the midst of how cool it is that THE Lenny Kravitz is retweeting these talented kids is a #MSWL middle grade novel I would love to see.

I've just realized the protagonists I'm most drawn to and the protagonists I've been asking for, especially in the MG space are just Amy March. Bratty, determined babies who don't want to read and are wildly jealous & resentful and full of joy. Send me your MG Amy Marches #mswl

I'm caught up on agented submissions through 7/15! I'm hungry for all kinds of PB, MG, and YA. #MSWL of the moment: funny-sad MG, sex-positive YA, something in the vein of ANGUS, THONGS, AND FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING. (Please note: I can't consider unagented subs.)

#MSWL middle grade about about a beauty pageant, preferably funny and with a protagonist who likes it (instead of “I’m not like other girls”)

I’m really hungry for #MG stories where the protagonist uses #STEM in badass and witty ways. Gimme? Query me. #mswl

Last one before i run is inspired by my new RBG socks "Dawn of Justice". I remember being a student mediator. I would love to see a MG about a kid who doles out the justice of the streets without using violence, and instead their words and their mind. #MSWL

One of my friends only discovered his love of drag after college and it made me wonder what if. And he always loved make-up (he did the theater make-up since he was an actor) What would this MG look like? Please show me. #MSWL

I really love the Descendants so I would love to see a MG about a kid that deals with growing out of the family shadow. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Aug 8

So it would have to be paired with a plot A that is hella cool but I would love to see a book that deals with parent that is absentee, or infrequent in a kid's life. That does a number on people (personal experience) and I think having a book showcase that is important. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Aug 8

And I'd love to find a book that deals with poverty and homelessness in a sensitive and kid friendly way #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Aug 8

I love diverse voices. So I want to be swept into other cultures. I want to be immersed into new experiences.

We are all human and the universal is in the specifics #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Aug 8

Kid entrepreneurs! Kids standing up to authority! MG is when you are finally getting a sense of identity outside of the family unit and this would be perfect! Undergorund slime business out of the bathroom? YES #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Aug 8

Magical realism in MG is another one. This was the time when most of us in TX wanted to grow up, but it was also when I think we also still had a sense of wonder. So MG magical realism feels perfect here. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Aug 8

I love DERRY GIRLS and I think you can totally pull that off in MG as well. Would also love to see a book that deals with friendships and break-ups. #MSWL
