Me After Watching Teen Witch and all four Halloweentown movies: MORE WITCHES.

So Salem witches historical or contemporary MG/YA/Adult but make it Black. Also, BIPOC witches forever and ever. #MSWL

I was just thinking that I would really love to see a young MG or chapter book with series potential, fantasy grounded in reality, to do with a girl and fairies. Not YA. #MSWL

And finally...

5. MG with a Big Hook! I like funny books and magical books and sad books and creepy books. In other words, I'm open to any genre, as long as it has a fun, snappy premise that'll get a kid's attention!

4. LatinX representation in kidlit- all ages, all genres, though I am particularly interested in finding a YA contemp & a MG fantasy! A few favorites: @LauraTNamey, @Nina_Writes, @acevedowrites, @djolder, and @CeliaCPerez. (You should be reading *all* of them!)

I want both MG and YA paranormal. And while it doesn’t need to be paranormal romance, let’s be real: I love romance. I love love. So if you’re writing a paranormal romance with a sweeping, high stakes story, I’d love to take a look! #mswl

In addition to commercial MG series, I’m eager for strong middle grade contemporaries with singular voices and that pull no punches. #mswl

Heading into fall (my favorite season!), I am excited to find fantastic new books to fall in love with in my submissions pile. Here’s what I’m eager to see… a #mswl thread:

First and foremost: MIDDLE GRADE. I am extremely hungry for a big middle grade series with stellar world building, cool magic, and a strong emotional core. I love my middle grade with lots of heart that works hand-in-hand with the high stakes adventure. #mswl
