#MSWL #YA: I love RomComs and anything with a ghost-y or #supernatural quality. #LTBTQ+, #OwnVoices and #BIPOC authors are always welcome. I do still like issue-driven YA, but am looking for something super-edgy in this realm.

Y’all know the drill! I want a character driven coming-of-age contemporary YA centered around a queer BIPOC girl that feels like Sour by Olivia Rodrigo. #mswl

Hello, 2021, and hello to writers seeking representation this year. Happy New Year! Here's what I'm looking for...a new year, a new #mswl thread...

Hello, everyone: I did a #mswl tweet at the start of this year, and it's all still true. I'm particularly excited to find YA thrillers and mysteries, and middle grade anything: series, contemporary, fantasy, etc.

TBH, I was just thinking about A DOG's PURPOSE, and then I was all like, "oh yeah but make it YA, and smoochie, and like darkly romantic, and not about dogs, but people, and maybe the world has magic already ..." So, that's my brain.

#MSWL I think it'd be really cool to get a YA fantasy (probs with a heavy romance subplot) with reincarnation as the crux upon which the pendulum swings. Doesn't have to be set on a realistic earth. Could be a fantasy world to make the world building deeper. Either way.
