I'm eager for fun middle grade series, humorous or not -- but definitely heartfelt. Sweeping worlds, sweeping adventures, kids wrapped up with gods and monsters and magic. Bonus points for fun animal (or magical-creature) sidekick characters! #MSWL
Hello! Just a #MSWL reminder as we look ahead to next year: I'm hungry for MG and YA across all categories, and particularly excited to find MG series/SFF/adventure and YA paranormal, contemporary, and thrillers/mysteries...and anything fun & soapy or spine-tingling & spooky!
Peter Knapp @petejknappHeading into fall (my favorite season!), I am excited to find fantastic new books to fall in love with in my submissions pile. Here’s what I’m eager to see… a #mswl thread:
First and foremost: MIDDLE GRADE. I am extremely hungry for a big middle grade series with stellar world building, cool magic, and a strong emotional core. I love my middle grade with lots of heart that works hand-in-hand with the high stakes adventure. #mswl
Closing out the day & week with a #mswl: I love middle grade adventure series (whether paranormal, sci-fi, or fantasy) with lots of heart & humor. If that's what you're querying, I'd love to see your project!

Peter Knapp @petejknapp#amquerying writers, I'm going to dedicate time over the holidays to read submissions, so now is a great time to query!
I'm eager to find more middle grade, from contemporary standalones & illustrated MG to sweeping adventure & fantasy series. I'd love more YA contemp & grounded YA fantasy or "twist of magic" stories, too. And YA paranormal (I'm here for your vampires & werewolves) #mswl
#MSWL - In MG, I will say I'd love, love to find a big middle grade series, something with heart & adventure. I'd love a sweeping MG fantasy-adventure, a new take on magical schools, or something high concept, high stakes, and FUN.
Peter Knapp @petejknapp#MSWL -- I'm still on the hunt for middle grade, and would particularly love a fun middle grade series with action, adventure, and perhaps some magic or a dash (or heaping cupful) of the paranormal!
Continuing to put this out in the universe: my hope is to find a big MG series in the next few months: MG fantasy, adventure, paranormal, scifi, etc...something exciting & brimful of imagination and heart, with characters who are at once brave and vulnerable. #MSWL

T.S. Ferguson @TeeEssI would love to find a teen girl super spy/action adventure. Something that can be pitched as Kim Possible meets Kingsman. Or in the vein of Kiki Strike (which I haven’t read, admittedly). #MSWL
