Saturday Evening Thoughts

I would really love to find an exciting, middle grade adventure/ fantasy set somewhere other than the US or Europe.

Great example: THE SERPENT'S SECRET by @Sayantani16

The weekend is here! Writers: send me AMAZING queries for picture books, middle grade, and YA to read first thing Monday morning!… #MSWL

I’ve been listening to THE GREATEST SHOWMAN album all night—it’s so good! Now I’m craving some #circus themed submissions in my inbox right w/ a hint of #magicalrealism (& by circus, I don't mean clowns!) #A #WF #YA #MG #MR #MSWL

#Querying? Send me your contemporary #MG, especially if it plays with structure like Jack Cheng's See You in the Cosmos. Send me your historical fantasy #YA, especially if it has a multicultural cast like Heidi Heilig's The Girl From Everywhere. #MSWL

Okay, I need a MG about a dog show. Let's do this. #MSWL

I would love to find a fun, queer, #ownvoices MG that makes me as happy and hopeful as STAR-CROSSED by Barbara Dee. #MSWL…

On my wish list— engaging stories with #STEM / #STEAM focus or tie-in…#MSWL #mglit #YAlit (And a belated happy #IDWGS2018!)

Agent friends, are any of your clients writing middle grade novels about outcast tweens trying to start a hobby-horseing team? Because I would read the hell out of that. #mswl…

Ali Herring @HerringAli · Feb 9

I am seeing lots of agents #MSWL quirky humor and MG. I love this too! What editor friends are in the market for off-beat humor done well?!

Katherine Harrison @KidlitKat · Feb 8

I'm not really a horror person, but I would totally dig a MG or YA graphic novel about an escape room that turns deadly... #mswl

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Feb 7

I'd really love to find a high concept, literary middle grade novel, be it realistic or otherwise. Please, universe? #mswl

Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen · Feb 7

Agents: Forever and always, I'd love to edit a YA or MG with an MC who is a rapper. A man can dream! #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · Feb 7

#MSWL Send me a #mglit or #YAlit story that reclaims women's/girls' voices in history. Not necessarily a rewrite/historical, although those are fine, too. Might be a side story to a larger plot.
