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

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


(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-90โ€™s you cowards. #mswl

โ€œI read widely in YA, and enjoy just about every genre in it. I love moving contemporary reads, thrilling sci-fi, and lush fantasy.โ€ @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

Annual #MSWL request:

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

Send me your books, friends. <3

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · Aug 16

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.

Sonyโ€™s Stage 6 Films Plots Sequel To Sundance Sleeper โ€˜Searchingโ€™ 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

๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ adorable queer love stories for mg and ya
๐ŸŽƒ spooky & silly mg with lots of magic
๐ŸŒ funny contemp ya that takes place outside of the US
๐ŸŽ‚ pb or mg about baking & sprinkles

#MSWL YA with #Euphoria -deep characters... esp. along the lines of Jules, Kat (& Ethan), and Nate. And high schools need more girls dressing up as Bob Ross for Halloween.

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


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)
