I would LOVE more #ownvoices Filipino YA or MG (set in the US or the Philippines) in my slush. My SIL is from the Philippines, my niece/nephew are being raised bilingual, I would love to find a gem to champion! #mswl

If I distilled my research properly, then teens want contemporary YA with friendship stories and diverse protagonists, but de-emphazing "issue books." #MSWL

For goodness sake, somebody PLEASE deliver my a plucky fun queer YA historical in the vein of Gentleman Jack #MSWL 🙏🏼

What character are you in a YA?

"Clueless jock coming of age"

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

I’m caught up on submissions 🎉 If we’ve been talking and you haven’t heard, please chase me.

If you’re writing/illustrating & looking to query, HELLO. I want contemp F/F romance (YA/teen), funny MG series, FRIENDSHIPS across all ages & Eighth Grade as a book.

Also, while I do love dark fantasy, I would love to see some fantasy that can serve our younger YA readers. Like Tamora Pierce and Sherwood Smith use to. Diverse reads we can give 12-15 set. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 3d

I wonder if there is a way to do a YA Nonfiction True Crime book. #MSWL Not sure what it would look like but it would be interesting. This is different than my fiction request for murder mysteries.

College 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

#MSWL YA book like TRULY DEVIOUS. I love true crime and I think there are alot of teens who do too so I would love to see more YAs that involve teens obsessed with solving mysteries.

Still (and most likely forever) looking for witchy Hocus Pocus-like fiction in #MG and #YA fiction #MSWL, please! 🧙‍♀️🎃
