Oh my word. I love Mark Rober videos in general, but this one is over-the-top amazing. I know there’s a #pb or #mg in here somewhere and I need it #mswl #squirrelsareawesome #STEM youtu.be/hFZFjoX2cGg

Currently obsessively consuming JINXED by Amy McCulloch, and not that I didn’t know it before, but it’s reiterating just how badly I want a MG STEM with a super smart badass girl MC. Adorable robots are a plus. Please and thank you. #MSWL

#MSWL Within romcoms, I’m looking for:
-diverse leads
-characters with clear entrepreneurial goals
-STEM components and smart characters
-small cozy towns or international travel

Lastly, until I think of more, definitely send me MG STEM-infused plots and POC characters and boys who are allowed to feel/girls who are smart and capable and sassy. Truly looking for tons of GN in the MG sphere #amagenting #querytip

What I'm hoping to see in my inbox? An upmarket fiction piece about a woman with a cool outdoorsy or animal-related job (think STEM). #MSWL

I’d be delighted to discover any STEM-focused fiction. I’m particularly intrigued by a MG heist novel where the whole planning stage isn’t just the brief montage one often gets in the movies. I want to see the nerdy figure out how it works stuff! #MSWL

Stephanie Winter @readbystephanie · Jan 6

Women in STEM
Groundbreaking and boundary-testing historical characters

Hi #writingcommunity! I have 9 middle-grade queries in my box right now. I WANT MORE.

In upmarket fiction, I’m looking for precise angles:
> Period pieces with women breaking into lively professions (think TV or comedy a la I Love Lucy).
> Women in S.T.E.M
> Anything geeky but accessible
> Gender fluid, masc. of centre, and non-binary protagonists. #MSWL

It's #MSWL day! (pt. 2) (Children's Fiction)

My door will always be open to picture books, running the gamut.
Fiction, non-fiction, funny, heartwarming, STEM, arts, anything. #MSWL

My number 1 #MSWL wish is for general nonfiction that teaches while it entertains. Have an obsession? Teach me about something I don't know!

Common winners: Creepy history, unsolved mysteries, common science topics with a twist (Space + X; STEM + X), folklore
