Katie Henry @KT_NREI see your con artist YA heroine and raise you this legendary teenage girl who infiltrated Queen Charlotte's court, escaped execution for theft, escaped indentured servitude, successfully posed as a German princess despite NOT SPEAKING GERMAN, and somehow lived happily ever after pic.twitter.com/5BrhYrhDNw
Excuse me while I #MSWL the hell out of this..
I’m half-Peruvian and would love to represent more children’s and YA authors and illustrators of Peruvian heritage—and Peruvians who live in Peru are great too! Does anyone know any Peruvian artists in instagram I can check out? #MSWL
Thao Le @ThaoLe8Am reading Annihilation and now I kinda want a weird nature YA #mswl
I'm still looking for this BTW. Atmospheric, creepy, invasive nature. Not quite right flora fauna. The feeling of something unnerving, watching you from the forest. I love settings that feel like characters, as if they have a motive. #MSWL
Ellen Scordato @EllenScordato@MelissaLaurenE @AlisonFargis #extra wood paneling, wrist corsage. I did love a good tan. F'Coppertone. Baby oil 4EVR
Baby oil 4EVR should be the title of a YA novel set in the 70s. Another #mswl FTW!!!
Joker Movie @jokermoviePut on a happy face. #JokerMovie - in theaters October 4. pic.twitter.com/TxF3Jqxjjr
This is the kind of villain as protagonist origin story i want in YA #MSWL. I might be too scared to watch the movie though, but damn do I relate to Joker now.
This year’s #BCBF2019 is inspiring! I’d love to find more great voice-led fiction, MG or YA, that is funny & warm & brilliant! Contemporary, maybe with a touch of magic. If you’re writing something that fits the bill, please send it my way. Oh, & graphic novels too please! #MSWL
Sarah is revising @slochDo you think there's room for a resurgence in contemporary fantasy? It seems like all I'm seeing right now is second world/high fantasy #asklitAOC
#mswl yes please! I'd love to see more contemporary fantasy in YA and adult!
In YA, I’d love to see more high concept coming of age stories: self-contained conflicts where teens learn about themselves against the odds: Magical realism; contemporary fairies; realistic YA mysteries or thrillers with a sense of place #mswl
