I'd also love a #middlegrade or #yalit story featuring poor people, that is filled with joy & short on trauma. Not having money doesn't have to mean alcoholism, drug addiction, rape, mental illness, etc. Of course it CAN mean that but it doesn't HAVE to. Send me that story. #mswl

I'm really trying to hone in on what kind of projects I'd love to see coming into my inbox, and (with the help of some of my lovely clients) here are some of the things I'd like to see... (a thread) #mswl #middlegrade #yalit #WritingCommunity #kidlit

As a grad of a performing arts high school I’d love to see a YA or New Adult novel about what happens when you love your art form but it doesn’t love you back in the way you expected. Think Larissa from I Wanna Be Where You Are. #MSWL

I made up a #MSWL! The main problem is that there are honestly more things that I DO want to see books made of than not, but hopefully someone finds this helpful✨

I have finished The Queen's Gambit and I am bereft I cannot watch it again for the first time.

This was easily one of my favorite shows of the year and if you have any project like this in the YA or YA crossover space, I am HERE for it.

#MSWL: a YA like the movie Frequency. Time travel fuckery. Dealing with grief/healing, family, memory, etc.

But without the cop element/storyline 🥴

I have not looked at my queries all week because sending a rejection this week would just be too mean. So, I don't know what's in there. I'm REALLY hoping for lots of queer stories & tons of submissions from #BIPOC & #Latinx authors. #yalit #romcom #middlegrade #MSWL 🤞🏽

My head is swirling around random thoughts today, but you know what I’d love to see in my inbox???? A sarcastic and wonderful holiday book: nonfiction—cooking book or DIY decorations and their meanings (love learning about traditions) or fiction—YA rom-com. #MSWL

I know this is super vague but I want to read a young adult manuscript that engages with that weird feeling of nostalgia you get before your life has even really changed. #mswl

Time for a #MSWL update! When it comes to genre, I’m omnivorous. In #MG and #YA, I’m especially hungry for:

High-concept genre elements combined with literary writing and an exploration of timeless themes.

Genre mash-ups! Give me that...

Right now, I'm very eager for realistic contemporary fiction in both YA and MG. As I just tweeted, I'd love it if it's funny and queer. Hit a home run if it's by a #BIPOC author. (Sorry for the sports metaphor. I don't even like sports.) #askECLA
