Seriously, writers: if you can write this, this is a serious #MSWL. Must be either MG or YA, could be graphic novel or novel. Or even nonfiction, if you want to tackle the real-world facts of this. #submissions #amwriting #YAlit #MGlit
Always looking for the next Darlene Conner, middle grade with a "To Whom It Concerns" protagonist a middle of the country tomboy who is sharp on the outside and may seem too big for her surroundings but still very much just a kid & wants to be loved. #mswl
S.I. Rosenbaum @sirosenbaum@RoanhorseBex Every time one of these books shows up, I think about the fantasy novels and alt.history books that could be written from a Native POV. There's so much space there. And instead we get this.
FYI, #MSWL re: the good stuff you're talking about, for MG and YA.
Claire Draper 🏳️🌈 @draper_claireAnd can’t it be falling in love with someone in class on the first day? Or rival AYSO soccer teams with goalies who fall in love? That’s sounds great #MSWL
Claire Draper 🏳️🌈 @draper_claireSend me all the gayest #MG because it’s what I needed in my childhood for sure

Carlisa Cramer @carlisajcLooking for great MG and YA historical fiction! Show me a new angle of history through the lens of compelling characters #MSWL
Still so true! I’m on a historical fiction kick, so if you have a MG or YA historical novel, please please send it my way. #MSWL

Sabrina Vourvoulias @followtheledeThere are all kinds of Latinos in the real world, and there should be kinds of Latinos in sf. All of us should be represented, and faithfully so. — Isabel Schechter #FantasticLatinas #NeverthelessShePersisted #WomensHistoryMonth
#MSWL: MG SFF, contemporary realism, and historical fiction featuring Latinx kids from Central and South America and/or American kids whose heritage is from those areas. It's a big gap in children's lit and my list specifically.
My #MSWL Madness post is up on the BookEnds blog! I talk about what I'm looking for in #pb, #mg, #ya and #gn fiction and nonfiction, and showcase the type of illustration that I have on my list: bookendsliterary.com/2018/03/15/tra…

Jaclyn Corin @JaclynCorinI was just told by my math teacher that #NationalWalkoutDay will accomplish nothing and I won’t understand the complexity of this issue until I’m an adult & fully “mature.” Yeah, right...
YA FicShenwei (they/them) | 張軒瑋 @theshennersObviously interracial relationships don't end racism but tbh I would really love more MG/YA with interracial friendships & romances that don't involve white ppl
More of my friends growing up were POC than not even though (or possibly because?) I lived in very white areas
