LAST one! Somehow it completely slipped my mind to mention that I'm now opening submissions for MG GRAPHIC NOVELS!!! I'm so excited to work on these stories so send them my way! #mswl

Kortney Price @kortney_price · 6d

I would LOVE a super atmospheric historical story featuring a mystery or an element of the paranormal or fantastical. Think The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd #mswl

Kortney Price @kortney_price · 6d

Atmosphere is absolutely the key to my YA magical realism/paranormal/fantasy #mswl heart! I LOVE it when a story has that creepy, fog-in-a-haunted-graveyard feel to it.

Kortney Price @kortney_price · 6d

I'd love to see a gritty or dark YA thriller/suspense/mystery/contemporary story. #mswl

Kortney Price @kortney_price · 6d

And on to YA! I'd love a sweet contemporary romance that's "artsy" or "geeky," MAJOR bonus points if you have #disability rep in your story #mswl

Kortney Price @kortney_price · 6d

Another MG #mswl (I'll get to YA in a bit) is a clever mystery with lots of moving pieces. Think Westing Game by Ellen Raskin or Clue πŸ”Ž

I'm also still looking for my MG sci-fi "Shenanigans on the space station" manuscript... think prankster, trouble maker, or majorly accident prone characters who go on a wild adventure #mswl

Kortney Price @kortney_price · 6d

I'm still searching for my MG survival story! Please send me your shipwrecks, deserted islands, mountains, forests, jungles, deep sea diving, lost in the big city, kayaking, camping trips gone wrong, treasure hunts… I'll take them all! #mswl

It's #MSWL day! Here's a thread of some of the things I am dying to see in my inbox! Remember, you can always check out more about my submission wish list on the @CorvisieroLit site or on my site 😁 kortneyrprice.com

I aim to rep stories that rep characters with disabilities. Someone dealing with losing a limb, a hard of hearing or blind character, or someone with Down syndrome or Autism, I’m looking for characters who represent the broad range of people in these communities #mswl #disability

Absolutely DYING to see a super atmospheric ghost story, for YA or adult in my inbox. Murder mysteries, gothic settings/themes, haunted mansions, gardens, rain, fog... all the things! With a dash of romance 😁 #mswl

These elements can include character, theme, atmosphere, grit, style, voice, setting, world building.....any craft element that you want to highlight.

For example, "My story combines the humor of Shannon Hale's Austenland with the heart and action of Kenneth Oppel's Airborn in this MG role playing adventure gone wrong" (#MSWL, btw)

I am absolutely dying to see some MG adventure or survival stories in my inbox! Shipwrecks, deserted islands, mountains, forests, deep sea diving, lost in the big city... whatever you've got I'm probably looking for it! #mswl

Okay so circus is always in my #mswl (minus killer clowns) but I just saw The Greatest Showman and so now I want ALL THE CIRCUS THINGS 😍

Saw Newsies @TheMuny last week... It. Was. Amazing! So, naturally, I have some Newsies based #MSWL to throw out there!

Replying to @kortney_price

1) The setting, early 1900's New York as a setting in any genre I'm currently looking for is something I would be super excited to see #MSWL
