I’m particularly interested in historical fiction and nonfiction for adults and juveniles. Give me the hidden backstory on an iconic event or person, or a pivotal but lesser-known character or incident. I want stories of people and issues that moved the needle. #MSWL
Los Angeles Times @latimesTV has a new kind of heroine: The Latina genius. Here's why it matters latimes.com/entertainment-…
1000% seeking MG (& YA & GN) w/ similarly strong, memorable Latinx leads (genius is not a specifically-required trait, but they *do* need to have agency, fresh/compelling story arcs, & be buoyed by masterful writing from creators who share the main character’s identity). #MSWL
Daniel Barnes @ C2E2 L12 @Danny8bitThe 2014 Ninja Turtles movie might be a bit of a mixed bag, but I’ve always loved the scene where they all start beatboxing in the elevator, on the way to their battle with Shredder
It perfectly captures the fact that they’re goofy teenage brothers pic.twitter.com/pTgs2Oh615
I think abt TMNT a lot, lol.
I want a YA ft. a friendship dynamic (esp. w/ a group of boys!) that reflects this sibling dynamic, & directly opposes—
The societal idea that boys aren't allowed to show they love each other the way these idiots did!
I JUST REALLY LOVE TMNT! #MSWL
Tiffany D. Jackson @WriteinBKHello Writers,
-If you're a black debut with a YA THRILLER, send it to me to blurb.
-If you are on submission, have your agent send it.
I would love to see more of us with me in this very white genre.
Ooh, also, #MSWL!
This is fascinating. What if, like tomorrow, Earth captured a new moon that was even larger than a car? Then what might happen? Could we go to it? Could we build on it? #YA #mswl newscientist.com/article/223542…
I'm open to queries and currently very caught up. (Hint, hint) I'm hungry for ya romance, queer romance for YA and adult space. Queer fiction in general. Chick lit/romcom. Women's fiction. I'd love a beach read in winter. #mswl
Oh, hello! At long last, my #MSWL page is up! I will try to keep this as up to date as possible. (I also regularly tweet things I'm looking for here.) Check it out:

Look, I don’t know how you could turn the The Svalbard Global Seed Vault into a YA novel about a teenager living at the edge of the world while helping to caretake seeds that are the literal fruits of many cultures, but if anyone’s got an idea... #MSWL
