I've been trawling our subs inbox for great middle grade. I thought I'd share some observations:
- Firstly, we don't get sent enough of it!
- Seeing a lot eco themes, historical, & animal protagonists - Not enough contemporary
- A lot of Upper MG, not enough Lower

Getting some traction for an old #mswl tweet so thought I should update with what I am actively looking for RIGHT NOW: Crime and psychological thrillers with a very, very, very clear hook, and wonderful MG - warm, funny, contemporary, magical - anything with a great voice!

So... right NOW would be a good time to send me contemporary YA. I'm prowling the submissions inbox for a strong voice and interesting relationships. katenashlit.co.uk/submissions/
(SFF - I see you, I love you, I respect you, but I am not looking for you at the mo) #mswl #amquerying

Oh, it is difficult to say what you are NOT looking for because you sometimes surprise yourself (or rather, a great submission surprises you)! Things I'm looking for at the moment includes 'uplit', great police procedural and contemporary issue-driven YA. #AskAgent
