Super hungry for middle grade in the vein of Peasprout Chen by @HenryLienAuthor and The First Rule of Punk by @CeliaCPerez. POC kids with a passion! #mswl

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

Seeking middle grade that is funny in a witty, clever way (I'm not the agent for slapstick, i.e. Captain Underpants, Dork Diaries) #mswl

I'm dying for more contemporary YA and middle grade to add to my list (particularly from marginalized voices) #mswl

As a fan of board games and escape rooms I'd love a puzzle-y or geeky mg/ya about them #mswl

I'm also down for geeky conventions as a setting, role playing, cosplay, and gamer girls in my mg/ya! #mswl

Dying for a middle grade like THE GIRL WHO DRANK THE MOON
By Kelly Barnhill <3 #mswl

Thao Le @ThaoLe8 · 8 Feb 2017

I want to see poignant MG/YA refugee stories. North Korea, Syria, Colombia, etc... #ownvoices highly encouraged #mswl

This one is oddly specific, but would love a MG/YA about an aspiring beautician dealing with natural hair and embracing it! #mswl

More middle grade. Fantasy, contemporary, sci-fi, etc... I want to see them all! #mswl

Replying to @ThaoLe8

In particular, I really want to see a MG about an immigrant family, having come from one myself (my family are Vietnamese boat people) #mswl

Inclusive stories, feminist stories, powerful stories about fighting against bigotry & injustice. #MSWL ALWAYS! #SFF #YA #MG #PB #ROM
