For picture books, I’d love to see more stories about communities and family or cultural traditions. I’m also down for totally silly, wacky stories that make kids giggle. ☺️

I’d also be interested to see some more author/illustrated projects with bold, colorful styles! #mswl

As someone who identifies on the ace/aro spectrum, I’d love to find a YA project that doesn’t center on physical/romantic attraction. That said, please send me ALL your queer books! #mswl

Please send me all your YA rom-coms. I love competitions, enemies-to-lovers, and quirky friendships. I’d also love to see more of these stories set outside of the US! #mswl

I’m most actively looking for MG and YA graphic novels by BIPOC creators. I’d love to see contemporary projects or stories with a touch of magic. Would also love to see more nonfiction GNs. #mswl

I gravitate towards books and authors with a clear, definitive voice full of intensity and emotion, and showcase deep meaning and character work through commercial fiction tropes #MSWL 7/7

For all of the above:

-Diverse experiences and marginalized voices are essential.

-Books that uplift women and are intersectional are a must.

-I love both books fueled by rage, as well as books that make me believe in love and joy #MSWL 6/7

In young adult:

-Romance! Rom com all the way through "the universe must have put us together" love.

- voice-driven contemporary set against a big, pivotal point in the MC's life

-psychological horror that has something bigger to say about who we are as a society #MSWL 5/7

-locked room mysteries/thrillers with a big cast of characters

- I like historical-set fiction but only if it is a genre I love (horror, rom com, etc) set in a different time period #MSWL 4/7

-what I'm calling the "rom dram," or romantic drama, with deep emotional conflict, rather than plot-driven drama

-social thrillers and horror w. commercial pacing, but have a deeper level of weight to them about something that occupies the social consciousness today #MSWL 3/7

I've spent the last month formulating my 2021 #MSWL (agented). I look forward to reading the great projects that this year brings! 1/7

In Adult:

-a big, gorgeous love story that rips your heart out

-voice-driven fiction for millennials and Gen Z that encompasses the social, romantic, and professional dynamics of the generation, preferrably with a light touch or dash of humor #MSWL 2/7

speaking editorially for a moment: this is one of the reasons that my general/historical fiction #MSWL includes "immigration stories that are not from Ellis Island."

ditto for Jewish stories--tell me a story that isn't about Ellis or the Holocaust (or the US, for that matter)

If someone writes a YA romance between two emo teens who go to a lot of concerts together, I’ll take that #mswl yesterday. It’s been over a year since I saw a live show and I want those feelings! Think 2004-2007 alt rock/emo extravaganza
