My incredibly specific #MSWL tweets have born some SPECTACULAR results lately, so I thought I’d gather the stories I’d still love to see in one monster thread 🙏🏼

As someone who has been to quite a few music festivals & is a huge fan of them, I would LOVE to see a YA in my inbox that takes place at one. Give me those HBO’s Euphoria vibes mixed with Electric Forest. #MSWL

Also peep at how small @lizzo’s name was when I saw her in 2015 lmao

I'd love to find a dark fairy tale retelling in the vein of UPROOTED that plays with form/timeline/expectations. Looking for MG/YA/Adult! #mswl

Dying to fall for a high-concept, unputdownable contemporary. Give me super strong voice. Some kind of mystery to be solved. Dynamic character relationships. #mswl

I’m desperate for some YA nonfiction in my inbox. Not so much nostalgic adult looking back, but urgent, voice-driven, high-tension, poetic language for young adults. Think: Jacqueline Woodson! #mswl #amquerying

“With non-fiction I want to learn something by accident, tell me a good story in a fun new way that keeps me thinking. I really enjoyed Carlo Rovelli’s SIX BRIEF LESSONS ON PHYSICS.” @maureen_moretti #MSWL
