#MSWL: I want a #YA about a girl gamer. What’s it mean to prove your place there? SF element a lá READY PLAYER ONE is cool too (but not necessary).

Here I stand, speaking my truest desire into the universe:

BODY POSITIVE YA ROM COM #MSWL

(don't forget the com, the com is important)

if anyone has a MG or YA with a PROTAGONIST who has ADHD, i'd love to see it. in particular, a type that isn't the more commonly associated hyperactive but features the inattentiveness, procrastination, disorganized thoughts, etc. would be open to realistic or fantasy #MSWL

Cleared my reading list and caught up on submissions! I'm hungry to read more across chapter books to New Adult, including graphic novels. All genres except horror!

Can't stop watching #FourWeddingsAndAFuneral miniseries and now I really want a YA version: diverse, tight-knit friend group, romance abound, lots of drama with just as much heart #MSWL

Where is my YA historical novel about teens trying to make it in a ska band in the mid-90’s you cowards. #mswl

Annual #MSWL request:

Novels about adoptees, written by adoptees. Adult or YA, I want those stories.

Send me your books, friends. <3

Still dying for nonfiction history projects #MSWL adult or YA. Weird history, history of women, fun history, lesser known history, creepy history. History! Not super into war history or battles. I like reading about culture and people.

Sony’s Stage 6 Films Plots Sequel To Sundance Sleeper ‘Searching’ starring a @CAAM favorite, John Cho. bit.ly/2Z15mO9

In light of this amazing news, I'd love a gritty, contemporary YA thriller that, like the excellent film SEARCHING, utilizes the unique quirks and challenges that technology/social media have introduced into our lives #mswl

i can't believe the american education system led me to believe that emily dickinson was some spinster shut in when she was actually busy writing super gay love letters to her brother's wife

Is anyone writing a YA novel about a queer teen's mind being blown upon reading these letters and then petitioning their high school to change the curriculum's portrayal of Emily Dickenson? Because I super want to publish that #mswl

Alice S-H @alibelle

Writers, I really want to add something like Anna & The French Kiss to my list. Gimme your angsty teen romances, please!

#MSWL

ALSO, I am watching One Tree Hill, the most YA TV show ever, and I would like to read something like it but set today. You know where to find me! (childrens@madeleinemilburn.com)

And so I think I love the web-like drama and very pure emotion and I’d like it intersectional and inclusive in lovely and complicated ways, too. So, yeah, #MSWL! YA, pls. 4/4

Tara is open to queries. 🔮✨ @Literary_Tara · 13 Aug 2019

#mswl romance edition.
I'd love to see something where the two protags are trying to bump up their TV ratings or their popularity rating (in YA or adult) and start fake dating and post cute pictures if themselves on insta. Only to actually fall in love!
Make it queer.

I'm caught up on agented submissions through 7/15! I'm hungry for all kinds of PB, MG, and YA. #MSWL of the moment: funny-sad MG, sex-positive YA, something in the vein of ANGUS, THONGS, AND FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING. (Please note: I can't consider unagented subs.)
