Rebecca Barrow @RebeccaKBarrowbeen thinking for a while how.........interesting it is that abortion books are not deemed to be Important in the way that many other social justice issue books are
Okay. If you identify as a woman and are writing a YA that involves abortion (specifically from the POV of the girl having the abortion) please send it my way. #mswl
Shannon Doleski @ShannonDoleskiWhat character are you in a YA?

First of all, how dare you, second of all I have been #MSWL-ing this forever, and someday my dream will come true!
Because I was talking about it today and still haven't seen any in my #queries. I'm still looking for #fantasy in adult and young adult inspired by Mesoamerican folklore. #MSWL realmofhistory.com/2018/08/01/12-… via @RealmofHistory
So.. I've been in #Poland for the last few weeks. Needless to say, I'm updating my #mswl. Please send me all of your royal Polish family stories (YA history, YA fantasy), stories based on Polish mythology (YA) and historical women's fiction. Who's writing about queen #jadwiga?
So, I mention that I like horror of the downright creepy variety. This will give you a sense of what that would be. As soon as I saw the trailer for this game I almost evil laughed 😉 👻💀 supermassivegames.com/games/man-of-m… #MSWL #YAhorror #ghostship #manofmedan @SuperMGames
Ayana Gray @AyanaGrayHonestly:
1) This is a MOOD.
2) I really want a YA fantasy with girls of color training to be badasses inspired by this.
TLDR: I WILL ALWAYS STAN GIRLS WITH WEAPONS. #BlackGirlMagic #amwriting pic.twitter.com/4kPrupWTwa

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhDCollege YA is another area that has been brought up in my informal polling, @ReadWriteandMe also mentioned it. I wish that publishers were more open to it, but if you send me a great one, we may make it happen saleswise. My next #MSWL: College YA.
Seconded! As someone who grew up with the same kids from kindergarten to 12th, college was the first time I was with new people, and allowed to reinvent myself (as it were) but it was also the first time I was out on my own. There are alot of rich YA themes in this setting. #MSWL
