At the time of this tweet I have exactly zero picture books about bears or cats. It is a big problem. Let's fix that. #mswl

MG or YA speculative fiction that's as sharp, funny, and layered as #RussianDoll. Something that uses the speculative element to say something, not just as a cool hook #mswl

ellen @ellencormier · Jan 14

Impeccably researched and incredibly queer historical fiction (MG or YA) in the vein of Gentleman Jack, Wild Nights With Emily, and Greta Gerwig's Little Women (let me live!) #mswl

ellen @ellencormier · Jan 14

Classic-feeling, oh-so-charming MG family stories (à la The Penderwicks) but about found or otherwise non-traditional families #mswl

ellen @ellencormier · Jan 14

YA where the relationship at the center of the novel is intense, complicated and platonic. Think Amy & Molly in #Booksmart #mswl

ellen @ellencormier · Jan 14

Unapologetically enthusiastic main characters. Give me protagonists who cannot play it cool when it comes to what they love #mswl

In 2020, I want to acquire more books! (It is also my job.) So, agent friends, here's a #mswl thread that I'll add to all year long.

TL;DR: Send me PB, MG & YA projects that have a distinct POV and something to say. Bonus points for queerness & a net emotional outcome of joy.

Extra points if she's the real playwright and she's just using her husband's name. twitter.com/sebastian_lk/s…

Ummmm wouldn't it be wonderful if someone wrote this historical? Doesn't even have to be Shakespeare, just a famous playwright whose wife is actually behind it all 😍 #MSWL

I'd love a fun, punchy new procedural #MSWL

Watching Shark Tank, and a 13-year-old girl with social anxiety just got a deal for the product she invented. And now I’m dying for this as a MG novel. #MSWL

When I open up to queries next month, I'd love to see more #kidlit stories that tackle climate change and feature real, innovative solutions. Ideally nonfiction but open to fiction as well. Bonus points if it's a graphic novel. #mswl

i'm probably late on this bandwagon, but if i could get a #MG with some detective whodunnit like #KnivesOut i'd love to work on one*!!! #MSWL

I'm building out the adult side of my list in 2020, so if you have an exciting, fresh #romance, #WomensFiction, #cozymystery, #thriller, #suspense, or narrative #nonfiction project, PLEASE SEND IT TO ME!!! #mswl
