/_\! @babakganooshWhy hasn’t anyone ever made a police procedural that takes place in an action movie universe? Like the detectives are investigating the criminals at the same time the vigilante is murdering them by the dozen to avenge his family.
If you can find a way to make this MG or YA, consider this on my #mswl
Camryn Garrett @dancingofpensGive me coming of age movies where black girls get to be horrible and funny like in LADY BIRD or where they get to be weird and funny like in BOOKSMART or where they get to be cute and fall in love like in TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE
I don’t make movies, but I do make books & I’m very much looking for this in MG & YA #mswl

#MSWL These are the kinds of details that build a convincing, contemporary YA world. Teens are intertwined with digital communication, and they're secretive, which means they're going to figure this shit out on their own. So much to mine! Write it true.
hannah capin @tldaaollfanyone who thinks YA is "unrealistically dramatic" needs to sit down following today's college admissions bribery adventure
blair waldorf has NOTHING on aunt becky
NGL I'd LOVE a YA about a student finding out their parents did this to get them into an elite school and now the student has to reckon publicly and personally with their privilege, whiteness, and wealth + how these contributed to their own ignorance of their parents' plot. #MSWL
So if someone has a feminist YA Purim retelling or a queer Vashti/Esther story (must be YA), definitely send it to me! Doesn't matter that I'm closed to queries right now. I want to see it! Submission guidelines are here: emeraldcityliterary.com/lindaepstein/ #MSWL #amwriting #WritingCommunity
L. D. Lewis 🦊 @EllethevillainThe world needs more botanical fiction. More stories about Victorian orchid hunting and the horrors of obsession and forests of explorers entombed in carnivorous trees for treading in places they don't belong.
