People who cheat get so demonized, which look it’s charged emotions and shitty betrayal, but cheaters are people too? And that’s the kind of character I want to follow in contemporary YA. Well, specifically the person who sleeps with their bff’s partner. #mswl

I recently reread ALMA AND HOW SHE GOT HER NAME and it’s truly one of my all time favorites. I’d love to see more projects in my inbox exploring the things—names, food, places—that connect us with the generations before us. PB (author-illustrator only), MG/YA novel, GN. #mswl

Throwing a new #MSWL into the universe: a YA historical fiction about disco subculture! 🕺🏿

I’m particularly interested in a story that explores:

🌀disco’s beginnings in Black and queer communities

🌀 the commercialization and appropriation of the genre as it gained popularity

🌀 the (racist and homophobic foundation of the) anti-disco movement

I'm dying (lols) to get a locked-room mystery #YA. I want high stakes, high energy, and I want to be guessing who did what and why and then be surprised that I was wrong. Send it if you've got it! #MSWL

Just watched the finale of Superstore. I’d LOVE a YA version of this—diversity is a must. I mean reality is that high schoolers and college kids truly run most fast food restaurants, retail stores, and grocery stores, especially at night. Oh and the antics... #MSWL

Agents, I'm in the mood for some epic YA contemporary in my submission inbox! That moment that changed everything, that person that shifted the way you see the world, that secret you kept, or that summer you'll never forget. #MSWL

"I knew there was a special soul behind that wall." ❤️🥺

Thank you Giorgio and Emil for reminding us what pure neighborly love and kindness looks like.

#mswl A or YA. Music has such healing powers, brings people together. I’ve always wondered about musical neighbors sharing walls (wouldn’t it be neat if...?) & finally meeting (a meet cute, a healing remedy like these two) or never meeting @ all but finding peace w one another...

💫 In YA or MG, I’m looking for contemporary only: sapphic rom coms, f/nb roms, or super voicey contemporary from BIPOC creators. #MSWL

• gothic and horror in MG, YA, and Adult that haunts you with its writing as much as the subject matter (not one for gratuitous gore)

• contemporary fantasy with fresh hooks, strong character dynamics, immersive worlds, & romance subplots.
