I’d love to find graphic novels in 2020, too. On the contemporary side, favs include ROLLER GIRL, BEST FRIENDS, AWKWARD. #mswl

YA contemporary will ALWAYS be a go-to for me. I particularly love stories that deal with heartache but lead hope-first, where the optimism always bleeds through. #mswl

#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

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 10 Oct 2019

Also on my #mswl always is YA contemporary, including mysteries, thrillers, and contemporary with a touch of magic or a speculative element. I particularly love grounded stories with magic such as THE RAVEN BOYS.

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 9 Oct 2019

Still high on my #MSWL is (you guessed it!) middle grade. I'd especially love a really sweeping, high-stakes & action-packed fantasy/contemporary fantasy, and/or something with cozy-magic. And I'm always on the hunt for MG contemporary!

#MSWL - Middle Grade! I'd love to find more: contemporary, fantasy, adventure, series, standalone, you name it!

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 21 Apr 2019

I'd also like a MG realistic/contemporary series. Something like Jason Reynold's TRACK series. I'd also be super excited to find brilliant literary standalone in MG. Something like WHEN YOU REACH ME or THE THING ABOUT LUCK. #mswl

#mswl 2019: A middle grade contemporary series as smart and pitch perfect as Jason Reynold’s Track Team series (6/13)

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 2 Jan 2019

#mswl 2019: Sweet, smart YA contemporary love stories: think TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE, WHAT IF IT’S US, SIMON VS., EVERYTHING LEADS TO YOU, etc. (3/13)

Here are just SOME of the things on my #mswl in 2019 (but I of course often fall in love with the thing I didn't know I was looking for)... (1/13)

#mswl 2019: Smart, hold-no-punches YA contemporary. One of my favorite titles of 2018 was SADIE by Courtney Summers so if you’ve written something like that, yes please! Other favorite recent contemporary YA: Nina LaCour’s WE ARE OKAY, Angie Thomas’s THE HATE U GIVE. (2/13)

#MSWL - #ownvoices YA & MG-- both realistic & contemporary, but also eager to find more #ownvoices fantasy & speculative fiction.

As always, MG is on my #mswl these days & all days. Everything from standalone contemporary and magical realism to big fantasy series.
