I am grateful for all the projects out in YA right now that deal with sexual assault, but I would really like to see more that highlight the differences in treatment when you aren’t a straight, white, cis, privileged woman. #MSWL

Where's the YA author writing a rom-com in space? #MSWL

Give me the Nora Ephron quality swoons and smiles from @LaurenEMorrill's books mashed together with the flawless SFF world building from @SanguMandanna and @rhodabee.

It'll be weird. A marketing nightmare. Send it to me.

#MSWL: Anyone out there have a YA manuscript with some fencing? I’ve got a hankering for a little foil work.

Samantha Wekstein @SWekstein · Mar 4

Another #MSWL today! A YA sex comedy like American Pie, but with a female and/or LGBTQ friend group.

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · Mar 4

Seeing some great #MSWL tweets today from agents I admire. In that spirit, I'd love to share some of mine!

- MG or YA fiction with a character who might become AOC-- that spirit, that drive, that persistence would make for a great story!
- always looking for funny
