where is my suspense-driven womxn-powered YA heist story that centers on sisterhood, smarts, and femininity instead of cattiness, competition, or men?! oh @HustlersMovie is fantastic btw #mswl

I also refute the YA is dead nonsense. It just needs some love #SCBWIchat twitter.com/guppybooks/sta…

Replying to @HollyRoseWrites

I so agree with this. It does need to be special. The market is super-competitive. But stand-out YA will find a home. Send me your YA love stories and unreliable narrators! :-) #scbwichat #mswl

#A6 PB: texts with a strong narrative arc, whether funny or lyrical, and a clear theme that young children can relate to. #mswl #scbwichat #scbwicon19

#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 love a strong voice, so if you can write a protagonist with a really intriguing, fun and distinctive voice, please, please send your ms my way! #SCBWIchat #mswl

#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

I'd love to see more mixed media novels like Illuminae, Sadie, and Rules for Vanishing. #mswl

Heather Alexander @HeatherAlexand · Oct 3

Hi #Kidlit Twitter! I'm looking for some short stories, like 5,00-10,000 words. Got something great you couldn't publish because it was too short? Consider @audible_com! #MSWL

Anne Tibbets @AnneTibbets · Oct 3

Really hoping for some SF that goes beyond, "Oh look, bad aliens. Let's shoot them!" #MSWL

Feeling those early Halloween vibes and realizing how much I would LOVE to see something reminiscent of WIDE SARGASSO SEA but from Tituba's POV during the Salem witch trials #mswl

Hattie ☀️ @hatteatime · Oct 3

I love novels that feature: therapy, cooking, stage magic, queer women, horoscopes and tarot, good dogs that don't die, holidays that go wrong. #mswl

I'm looking for regional crime, particularly set in Yorkshire, Scotland or Ireland, particularly with a female slant #mswl
