anyone who thinks YA is "unrealistically dramatic" needs to sit down following today's college admissions bribery adventure

blair waldorf has NOTHING on aunt becky

NGL I'd LOVE a YA about a student finding out their parents did this to get them into an elite school and now the student has to reckon publicly and personally with their privilege, whiteness, and wealth + how these contributed to their own ignorance of their parents' plot. #MSWL

Half the afternoon has been spent ranting with @far_ah_way about wanting more YA that feels like Mass Effect and @ashposton’s Heart of Iron.

Gimme character driven space opera with making out please. #mswl

After watching Salt Fat Acid Heat I am craving a food-related contemp fantasy! #MSWL

I'm preparing to reopen to queries next week and wanted to share my current #mswl:

Contemporary Fantasy in the vein of the films About Time and Your Name
Diverse MG like Aru Shah and the End of Time and Amina’s Voice
Foodie Magic like Chocolat and Garden Spells
LGBTQ Retellings

I want a #WF about a college administrator who is all like “fuck these cheating rich kids” and makes it her personal mission to get each of them expelled by any means. Starring Octavia Spencer, obviously. #MSWL

Can somebody please, please write a book based on this woman's life? Non-fiction, fiction, either way, I want to know everything about Freddie and publish her story. #MSWL…

Hi there, I’d really love a YA novel that’s the spiritual equivalent of Jitterbug Perfume. #MSWL

"Would love an East/West Germany or Berlin Wall historical with a romantic hook. Something sweeping and heartbreaking." @carlywatters #MSWL

So if someone has a feminist YA Purim retelling or a queer Vashti/Esther story (must be YA), definitely send it to me! Doesn't matter that I'm closed to queries right now. I want to see it! Submission guidelines are here: #MSWL #amwriting #WritingCommunity

A picture book or a literary novel about "Boston marriages." (Notably, Katharine Lee Bates--who wrote America the Beautiful--and Katharine Coman, or Amelia Van Buren and Eva Watson-Schutze.) #MSWL

The eeriness of this line always gets me in any book ever: She could sense something was wrong, but she couldn’t work out what. #MSWL
