#MSWL - Anything that feels high concept and cinematic in YA, whether it’s sci-fi, fantasy, or contemporary with a speculative twist. Stories with big “what if” premises.

Hello! I'm looking to find some great projects while I'm home with lots (and lots) of reading time. Here's a quick #MSWL rundown: a thread.

#MSWL - MIDDLE GRADE. Any and all middle grade! I am hungry for it: standalone contemporary, sweeping fantasy series, sci-fi, horror, you name it. I’d love something high concept, like CITY OF EMBER, NEVERMOOR, ARU SHAH & THE END OF TIME, etc.

I'm also dying for more fun & high concept middle grade series, like THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD & EVIL, NEVERMOOR, ESCAPE FROM MR. LEMONCELLO'S LIBRARY, MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY, etc. And as in YA, in MG: monsters. #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.

I'm also searching for a MG series: something big & fun! It could be set in our world or a secondary world fantasy. I'd love it to be fun & perhaps funny. Ideally it has a high concept, but most important to me is that it has that page-turning quality & irresistible voice. #mswl

Hello! I remain excited to sign up new MG & YA authors in 2019! I love anything from quiet middle grade standalones to high concept YA series, and everything in-between, so if you're querying MG or YA, please consider sending my way! A thread with some specific #mswl items...

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 25 Feb 2019

Monday #mswl thoughts: I would love to find an epic YA paranormal series or a sweeping, action-packed, high concept YA sci-fi series (but not necessarily set in space).

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 19 Dec 2017

High on my #MSWL for 2018: high concept MIDDLE GRADE! If you've written anything like THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL, THE CANDYMAKERS, NEVERMOOR, THE MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY, etc. then please query me! parkliterary.com/get-in-touch/

#MSWL - fun, high concept MG adventure series! I love adventure, puzzle-y stories, and bonus points for humor. petejknapp.com/post/155644067…

...a standout, high concept YA series; books about how identity is both passed down and reformed with each generation... (2/?) #DVPit #mswl

#mswl - I'm also still looking for my DARK MATTER or READY PLAYER ONE: a voice-driven, smart, high concept sci-fi novel.

On my #MSWL -- literary YA, fresh high concept YA, gorgeous MG & anything really funny or spooky or both. petejknapp.com/tagged/wishlist #askagent
