Happy #feelgoodfriday! This story from the summer has been on my mind as next week is #mentalhealthawarenessweek. I loved seeing these kids take a stand for students’ #mentalhealth and making a positive change in Oregon #kidlit #MSWL
Eva Scalzo 🇵🇷 @evascalzoI’m always talking about wanting to see books that represent my culture, but the other day I went out to dinner w a friend and her daughter who also happens to be a type 1 diabetic. And I don’t see many books who represent this part of my identity.
So my #MSWL would be a book where one of the characters have a chronic illness (like diabetes) but not where the plot is all about them having the illness. It’s just a character trait & sometimes you have to deal with it but mostly you just live & love & have GMC unrelated to it.
Happy 14 years of being a type 1 diabetic to me!!! With my agency's recent relaunch, I guess it's a good time to note I'd love to see some manuscripts with type 1 diabetic protagonists - or chronic illness, disability, neurodiversity rep in general. #mswl
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksWhat's your dream marketing-nightmare-of-a-book that you keep saying you'll write, but you're afraid to?
This tweet is brought to you by talking to a class today about how badly I want to write a historical YA about teens running a BBS in the 90's.
To everyone rting this, if it’s got a romance consider sending it my way! I love genre weird books 🖤 #mswl
Denise Williams @nicwillwrites@sharongracepjs This is on brand with Billionaire Bear Erotica in case your MSWL is in need of updating
#MSWL You've Got Mail but instead of emails it's a meet-cute in the comments section on the bear cam
Holly Butcher @HollyRoseWritesI also refute the YA is dead nonsense. It just needs some love #SCBWIchat twitter.com/guppybooks/sta…
#A6 Illustrators: so hard to define what you’re looking for here! But a portfolio full of animal and child characters in a distinctive, consistent style is always exciting to see. #mswl #scbwichat #scbwicon19
#A6 Non-fiction: I’d love to find an expert in a fascinating field, who can write with passion and real (age appropriate) depth of knowledge to bring their subject to life for young readers. #mswl #scbwichat #scbwicon19
#A6 I’d love to find an exciting MG mystery/detective story, especially if it’s funny too! I’m also always on the lookout for great YA with an unreliable narrator or an intense and overwhelming love story. #SCBWIchat #mswl
#A6 MG: I’m on the lookout for big characters, funny voices and magical worlds. Possibly eco themes. Definitely animals. Always surprises along the way! Stories with universal appeal. #mswl #scbwichat #scbwicon19
SCBWI British Isles @SCBWI_BI#Q6 Are you looking for something in particular at the moment? What is your manuscript wish list? #mswl #scbwichat #scbwicon19 @Arabella_Stein @AmberCaraveo @guppybooks @alicelovesbooks @Plum_Agency @MeganACarroll @em_dash_
