#MSWL - middle grade or YA graphic novel series, whether contemporary, contemporary with a twist of magic, or fantasy. Especially would love to find a great contemporary series with a great concept.

#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

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 - YA and MG stories with just that touch of magic. This is something that @EBain does so well!

#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

#mswl - a sweeping middle grade series with heart and humor! Related, but more specifically: a middle grade series with puzzle-y elements. And, always, middle grade with magic, especially cozy magic!

#mswl 2019: A great historical mystery with mythology and magic such as SERAFINA AND THE BLACK COAT (7/13)

#MSWL - related: I want everyday magic in YA and MG. And I want writing that makes the every day seem magical.

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 12 Sep 2017

#MSWL - books that reveal the magic pulsing just beneath the surface of things.

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 7 Jun 2017

#MSWL -- I still like to draw imagined cities & maps and always love fantasy that has cool, fresh & fully-realized worlds & magic systems.

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 30 Nov 2016

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

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 22 Oct 2016

#mswl - In terms of MG, I'd especially love to find contemporary & historical, magical realism, & stories that feel very classic & timeless!

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 5 Oct 2016

...books where you're not sure if magical things are happening or if it's just how a character processes the world (4/?) #dvpit #mswl
