Stephanie Stein @stephlysteinSomeone pls write the high-school newspaper, YA rom-com version of this? PLEASE? #mswl twitter.com/jeandenki/stat…
I would love to find such a project, too. See below—> #MSWL
John Cusick @johnmcusickFirstly, of course, I'd love some more #ownvoices, and specifically contemporary (rom-coms, perhaps?), like TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE and DUMPLIN' (can never get enough). #MSWL
Top of my #MSWL: women's fiction and romance by/about underrepresented voices. Contemporary. Historical. Contemporary or historical with a magical element. Grounded SF. Romcoms. Happy books. Also, maybe a big, sweeping gothic romance?
Emilia Rhodes @emiliarhodesYA thrillers that feel surprising and new. I'm a murderino at heart and am currently loving Sadie by Courtney Summers. Also would really love to see thrillers written by POC writers and other writers from marginalized backgrounds. I know they're out there! #MSWL
And last one for now, YA love stories! Funny or heart-breaking or anything in-between. I'm on the rom com bandwagon after To All the Boys and Crazy Rich Asians just like everyone else and always love a heart-tugging romance, too. #MSWL
Jessica Sinsheimer @jsinsheimGood morning! It's #MSWL day!
Agents + editors will be tweeting what they wish they had in their inboxes.
Writers can take note of which agents may be a good fit, and then submit work traditionally.
Need any help? @kkhendin and I are standing by!

Rachel Stroll-eek says preorder SUMMER BIRD BLUE @recitrachelHey publishing I know there are people much better than me speaking to this issue, but my library teens would love more rom-coms starring black teens (written by black authors, since clearly that needs to be specified!)
#MSWL Yes please!
still on adult romance:
*sexy romantic comedy
*looking for a fresh take on tried-and-true tropes
*looking for laugh-out-loud humor
*looking for unique situations/conflicts and character relationships
*a fun story that also has emotional depth and resonance
John Cusick @johnmcusickSo before it gets too late, let's do some #MSWL tweets!
