#MSWL for the new year pt 4: light fantasy or contemporary stories with magical elements, especially if they have quieter stakes.

Not saving the world but instead asking someone out or fixing a fight with a friend.

This time every year I wonder why we don't have a YA retelling of the Christmas story (Mary, Joseph, etc): the characters are the right age, the conflict is strong and, depending on your beliefs, it could be read as miracle or magic a la GRAVE MERCY. Hard to pull off, but...#MSWL

Nonfiction #MSWL—a how-to guide for making friends and finding social circles after college

Now feels like a good time to mention that I am very interested in your messy and complicated villains and also characters who seem like the villain but are actually *coughs* the love interest #MSWL

#MSWL for the new year pt 3: stories from trans and nonbinary writers.

Your words matter and I want to help them get out into the world. ❤

Would love a #NF project in 2020 by an #ownvoices author that deals with cross-cultural appropriation. #MSWL

#MSWL for the new year pt 2: feel good YA romance, especially if it's queer!

First crushes gone right, awkward pining, best friends to lovers, fake dating turned actual dating, I hate you but oh wait, we're actually similar af and I may like you.

ALL OF IT.

#MSWL for the new year: found families, best friends who don't need to say anything to communicate, friends who live together because sometimes families are difficult.

Just signed my third Steve. Don’t know how many more Steves my small list can carry. Authors not named Steve: I’m open for submissions! (Also open to Steves with extraordinarily good #nonfiction manuscripts.) #mswl #querying #literary

Her other book, THE AGE OF MIRACLES, is similarly dazzling.

This is top of the list for things I’d love to see in my inbox for ‘20: sci-fi that puts the SFF elements as the backdrop for telling stories about humanity. #MSWL

For instance...

TAOM is a teen coming-of-age story—but the Earth’s rotation is slowing. In THE DREAMERS, shifting family dynamics are painted on the canvas of a town quarantined bc of a sleeping sickness.

Kind of TWILIGHT ZONE? BLACK MIRROR? THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES?

Send me this please. #MSWL

The thing I want when I say climate fiction, eco-fiction, even more than work that imagines futures, is work that grapples with the overwhelming grief & anger, confusion, guilt, of being a person now. It's crushing, & I crave the mirror of fiction. #mswl

A reminder to all that I am ALWAYS looking for own voices genderqueer, trans, and non-binary submissions in children’s and across genres #mswl
