In #MG I would love to see a kid's perspective living somewhere like Oak Island during the hunt for treasure. I want to see the history, the mystery, the gold, and how the kids are the ones who find it! #MSWL #amquerying #amagenting

#MSWL I'm so excited to share that I'm switching up my wish list! I am no longer accepting adult manuscripts but I AM now looking for amazing picture books, early readers and chapter books along with #MG and #YA! To see more, check out my updated page! corvisieroagency.com/kortney-price.…

After what seems like an eternity of editing, tweaking & rearranging, my website is FINALLY finished!! Check it out for my up to date #mswl, recent #writingtips blog posts, & to see what about my authors' writing made me fall in love with their stories! kortneyprice.com

Hi #amquerying folks! Just a reminder that Corvisiero will be closing to queries on Dec 1! If you have a dark #YA thriller/contemporary/mystery or a #MG survial, those are at the top of my wishlist right now 😁 #mswl

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

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 🔎

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 · 12 Sep 2018

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

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

Kortney Price @kortney_price · 16 May 2017

In #MG stories I love reading about mysteries, puzzles, adventure, survival & shenanigans! Think Westing Game, 39 Clues & The Goonies #MSWL
