I'd be interested to see a YA nonfiction guide to money that acknowledges the gig economy, high cost of secondary education, lack of pensions, etc. How can today's teens/late millennials prepare for a much different financial reality than previous generations? #mswl
This year, I'd love to see more trade non-fiction for children and teens that goes beyond a traditional biography! Show me science, history, cultural movements, our planet, etc. in ways I haven't seen before! (bonus points if it's a graphic novel!) #NonFiction #pb #mg #ya #mswl
Melissa @melissasee@ericsmithrocks What YA would you like have come across your desk?
When I open up for queries again (Springtime?), I am desperate for some more YA SFF genre blending novels, with the kind of expert world building I've seen in @RantingOwl @heidiheilig and @SanguMandanna's books. #MSWL
Hello #amquerying #writingcommunity - I open to submissions in less than 24 hours! Curious what I’m looking for? A full list can be found on the @MetamorphLitAg website or QueryTracker, but here’s a little #mswl to get you started. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!
Molly O'Neill @molly_oneillThe bravest books about faith IMHO don't demand a certain response or conclusion from their readers, but instead give *the very questions themselves* to teens, then honor/respect the ways in which young people grapple/wrestle/engage with them & make space for answers that emerge.
YA about religion and faith is on my permanent #mswl because faith and growing up are both about Big Questions—finding them, answering them (or not), and living anyway.
Catherine Slavova @CSlavovaI remember after the success of Twilight, the deluge of love interests in YA that clearly took after Edward, but with everything heightened.
I hope that with all the YA authors screaming about Dragon Age on twitter, we see a deluge of Alistairs, Dorians, Cullens, Zevrans & more.
