I'd like a MG Fantasy that features lesser-known creatures of myth and legend (be that because they don't figure as prominently in mythology, or because they are from traditions ignored by the European-centric literary canon). #mswl

#MSWL I can't get the animated film "The Breadwinner" out of my head. Beautiful, jarring, sad, strong, hopeful... all the emotions. I really want MG or YA with cultural depth.

Gearing up to reopen to submissions (possibly in the next couple of weeks). I want to see more Middle Grade and Contemporary YA! Especially stories from POC and non-binary voices. Please no issue books. I want fully developed plots, strong hooks, and nuanced characters. #mswl

Literary Agent Mark Gottlieb @Mark_Gottlieb · Feb 24

Looking for a #YA or #MG writer well-versed in the character of Grendel and Grendel's mother from BEOWULF for a book idea. DM or query via email if interested. #MSWL en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grendel

Ali Herring @HerringAli · Feb 21

Would love commercial high concept #MG, written in a literary style, that explores some important emotional competency for the characters (death, loss, catastrophe, violence, race, differences/disability, social justice, growing up, etc) contemp, fantasy, sci-fi, etc. #MSWL

I know I'm not going out on a limb here by saying how much I loved HELLO, UNIVERSE, but I read it this weekend and good heavens I loved it! If you are querying a MG like this, please send it my way. This book was amazing, and my heart belongs to Gulliver. #MSWL

@KiraWatsonESA Hello! What are your Top Three #MSWL at the moment? :) #askagent

Replying to @BevTwomey

1) 90's YA with a young woman trying to enter the metal scene
2) Emotionally hefty contemporary YA. (Think #GirlInPiece)
3) YA/MG/PB on weightlifting and powerlifting #MSWL #askagent

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

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

Alex Slater @abuckslater · Feb 13

#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

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Feb 13

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