I'd love to see more illustrators who don't necessarily write in my inbox #mswl

I know this story is at least a year old, but since that society scammer girl was recently found guilty it reminded me: I very much want a YA spin on this type of con. #mswl…

Watching Maleficent and goodness do I want a flawed and broken main character like her!!! Omg, I love this movie so much. Having a BA woman like her in a manuscript is totally down my alley! #MSWL

tooootally unrelated #mswl....

all types of wlw stories are Good and I am loving all the soft lesbians I'm seeing, but also someone please send me something where the MC is just thirsty as hell for a girl who can benchpress her

Women come in all body types and are capable of all sorts of different things. I'd like to see a wider range of physicalities for women represented in queries! #mswl

Where are my super buff lady protagonists? I'm not talking rogue-buff, I'm talking barbarian-buff. I adore Catra and Beau and I'm delighted to see queries with women like them, but also where are my protags built like She-Ra and Yasha? #mswl

Here's a #mswl: I love all the stealthy, crafty, swift, creative, highly trained and skilled ladies I see in queries fighting with all manner of imaginative weapons. But there's still a lack of female characters wielding weapons that require brute strength.

#MSWL: Novels that would fit right alongside works by Deborah Harkness, Jennifer Donnelly, Leigh Bardugo, Erin Morgenstern, Sandhya Menon, Libba Bray, Alexander Chee, Maggie Stiefvater, Nicola Yoon, & Jandy Nelson

#MSWL: YA fiction: verse novels, serious subject books that are full of humor/candor (think Gae Polisner), female friendship stories, contemporary witches
