Mandy Hubbard (she/her) @MandyHubbardI will forever want more survival stories-- Hatchet was one of my faves growing up, I loved THE RAFT, OBLIVION ROAD, FIVE TOTAL STRANGERS, etc. If they're snowed in, stranded at sea, stuck in a desert, I want to read it. MG & YA. #MSWL #AskECLA

I'm looking for #YA survival stories in the vein of #Yellowjackets (the teen timeline), #TheWilds or even something like Wilder Girls. Questions! Mysteries! A hint at mystical or fantastical without going full fantasy. #MSWL #amquerying
(Thread 3/7) #Fantasy -> Action and Adventure: We mainly want thrilling stories, with disasters, expeditions, survival stories, anything with space and aliens, treasure hunts, technology, or with romantic elements. #MSWL
• Stories about (non-anthropomorphic) animals, human-animal bonds, nature & high-stakes survival
• Select author-driven nonfiction, primarily with a radical, social justice–oriented focus—think prison abolition, open borders, union organizing, anarchy, socialism
I am still looking for my womxn-in-the-outdoors book! Camping, hiking, survival, etc! But give me something more to dig my teeth into - how is this story in conversation with our world today? How will it stand out from other books in its genre? #MSWL
...Stories of Black joy (any age), funny, escapist YA, forced proximity survival stories (stranded on an island? plane crash in the mountains? snowed in? Any age. I loved Baby Island AND Six Days, Seven Nights) 4/
Emily S. Keyes 😷 @esc_keyWatching the History Channel show ALONE. Reminds me I still looking for a female survival story (MG preferable but YA also maybe). Like MY SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN or HATCHET. #mswl
Or maybe like CASTAWAY. This idea of being alone for so long is particularly interesting to me now. #mswl
Here is my #mswl darleyandersonblog.com/2020/02/25/mee… Generally, outside of crime, things that are uplifting & are about finding/making connections. High concept, feel-good, love stories. And across children's uplifting again, funny, things inspired by kindness and nature.
As well as #ownvoices and stories set outside the United States. I want stories of survival and grief and characters who overcome obstacles. Ah, who am I kidding? I just want a good book to lose myself in. #MSWL
Rutger Bregman @rcbregmanThe real Lord of the Flies: what happened when six boys were shipwrecked for 15 months
Adapted from my new book HUMANKIND -->
This is such an incredible story of survival, friendship, and a HEA?! Love it.
Add this to my #MSWL.
This pandemic is hitting all of us differently on an emotional level, I know, but it's kind of making me crave stories about people worse off than we are... Does this make me a bad person?
Even so, I'd love to see more apocalyptic survival stories in my submissions box! #mswl
