I updated my #MSWL page. I’m looking for MG, YA, kids/teen GN, and author-illustrators. Great writing a must, high concept a plus, and diversity in all ways is welcome. I love your queer, weird, funny, beautiful, nerdy SHENANIGANS. More info: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/jenn…
Carolina Ortiz @pushthepanoramaIn general though, any POC authors take on vampires, werewolves, sirens, witches, and any manner of myth/supernatural is always #MSWL for me
hello yes thank you. still waiting for my YA banshee novel but will also take all of the below. #MSWL
Yes! I would like to see more surreal/sci-fi/folk horror #YA because WILDER GIRLS is bloody awesome. I want more of what Aykut Aydoğdu, who painted the cover & this below, captures in his art: that unique feeling of teenage dread & disquiet. #MSWL
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeAnd finally my evergreen #MSWL right now: mermaids. Evil mermaids. Magical realism mermaids. 13th Year Mermaids.
And Ren Faire contemporary.
And Spice Girls friendship break-up MG or YA.
Naomi Davis is thinking about planets @NaomisLitPixIn contemporary YA, I want stories where teens have departed "their usual world" for some reason. Humanitarian trips, visits to ancestral places. Immigration/refugee stories rooted in truth. An updated GIRL: INTERRUPTED style departure from their usual would be amazing. #mswl
Still looking for these too! Really want that updated GIRL: INTERRUPTED for YA readers. Bonus points for LGBTQ+ rep. #MSWL
Isabel Ibañez @IsabelWriter09Guys. An idea just hit me.
Starring Latinx vampires. Family obligations. Honor. Respect and upholding tradition before anything else.
and The Matriarch.
Who everyone calls Abuela.
Tia Rose Mele is Closed to Queries @TiatheTigerYou know those bmx groups that put on demonstrations at festivals and other events? I’d love to see a YA (or MG!) set in that world! #MSWL
#MSWL Especially YA featuring women from Puerto Rico who joined the Nurse Corps. J. R. Eyerman Group of Us Army Nurses Relaxing During Stopover on Guam En Route to their Final Destinations pin.it/k6stndz6cnwemr via @pinterest
Joseph Gordon-Levitt @hitRECordJoeToday’s the 10 year anniversary of “(500) Days of Summer.”
Where did all the time go, @ZooeyDeschanel??? pic.twitter.com/9eR6WGMoOT
Fun fact: (500) Days of Summer is my favorite movie. In honor of its 10th anniversary, send me the YA novel version! #MSWL
What I really want to see in my inbox, US edition: MG with fantasy elements that isn't straight-up high fantasy; YA that makes me feel the way Sandra Newman's THE HEAVENS did (what do you mean you haven't read it, GO READ IT) #mswl
Agents! I am caught up on subs through 6/19 and am hungry for more. A few things on my #MSWL today: a twisty YA thriller I can read at the beach, an #ownvoices MG novel with queer representation, a picture book in the vein of ESCARGOT with a protagonist that should be a plushie.
