Is it too much to ask for a modern, female-centric, MG version of THE SANDLOT? The varied friendships and subtle family drama and learning your fears aren't so scary and growing up/growing apart? So much to love! #MSWL

I really love the “spending the summer back home” premise in middle grade and YA, especially when “back home” is so varied for Black peoples. Grandma/aunty/cousin’s house is often the perfect background for all kinds of stories. More please! #mswl

I’d really love to read a hilarious chapter book or middle grade full of black characters going on silly adventures. #mswl

Today's #MSWL is a heist story. Young adult (like SIX OF CROWS) or adult (like MONEY HEIST), or even MG (for which I can't think of an example)—I want to see the mastermind behind the planning, the action, the drama, the romance that blossoms with danger around every turn!

How about a #middlegrade or #YAlit that kind of comps to A Night at the Museum, only set in the Louvre or the Guggenheim or something? Even better if it's written by/about #BIPOC! #mswl #WritingCommunity #kidlit #scbwi

Graphic & hybrid novels & series are welcome too! Some examples there from my past titles would be DORK DIARIES and THE OKAY WITCH. Quintessential MG stories about finding your way through the labyrinth of family, school, & friendship twists and turns.

As promised, here’s a little more info about my #mswl for Labyrinth Road! (Thread)

First & foremost—epic, accessible, *character-driven* MG fantasy & adventure series! I’m excited to build series that could sit well alongside my previous projects like KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES, STORY THIEVES, THE UNWANTEDS, FABLEHAVEN.

I'm not so into sitcom type television but I loved Schitt's Creek & Gilmore Girls, both of which are character driven small towns filled with quirky people, a strong set-up/hook, & all very... nice. The world is on fire around us. I want that "nice" vibe in a MG or YA book. #mswl

I'd also love a #middlegrade or #yalit story featuring poor people, that is filled with joy & short on trauma. Not having money doesn't have to mean alcoholism, drug addiction, rape, mental illness, etc. Of course it CAN mean that but it doesn't HAVE to. Send me that story. #mswl

I made up a #MSWL! The main problem is that there are honestly more things that I DO want to see books made of than not, but hopefully someone finds this helpful✨

I read DEAR SWEET PEA last week and fell in love—it was the perfect balm for the stress. I would love to see more MG that balances a sweet and funny voice with more serious themes, and any submissions that could be comped to SWEET PEA! #MSWL

I have not looked at my queries all week because sending a rejection this week would just be too mean. So, I don't know what's in there. I'm REALLY hoping for lots of queer stories & tons of submissions from #BIPOC & #Latinx authors. #yalit #romcom #middlegrade #MSWL 🤞🏽
