Ok, so I love movies and stories about a group of kids going out and having adventures, so I'm looking forward to the new Ghostbusters, but have you noticed all these stories are usually all boys? Maybe one girl?

Give me an all girl cast adventure MG. #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

I’m reading a manuscript that’s reminding me of Lost Planet, and goodness, do I miss that game.

I wish the sequels had kept up with all the wonder of the first one. Someone reboot it, thanks.

Also, more fantasy adventure novels with giant monsters and snow please. #MSWL

I'd love a realistic contemporary #MG adventure featuring African American kids. Like, I REALLY want to read that. Something fun & lighthearted & exciting! #ownvoices #MSWL

My #MSWL part 6: I want all the MG!!! Give me cute & quirky, spooky, mysterious, funny, adventurous, magical--you name it. Probably not all in the same book, though. Show me familiar done with a different twist or something new. I want UNIQUE!!! #WritingCommunity #amquerying

Hi #writingcommunity! I have 9 middle-grade queries in my box right now. I WANT MORE.

Adventure, Fantasy, sci-fi, magical realism, horror, historical, everything!

Also, I am open to considering non-fiction middle-grade novels, especially LGBTQ+ and STEM for girls. #MSWL

i've reached the point where i'm itching for a FUN #MG or #YA submission. i'm down for a spiral into something fascinating but it has to be within a plot with adventure, hijinx, but most importantly, i want to laugh and enjoy the ride. #MSWL

Specific #MSWL request: I want a #YA ft. three brothers. An exploration of masculinity that isn't toxic. And adventure.

This is a very thinly veiled way of asking for "The Tale of the Three Brothers" but. Different.

Ok, cool, glad we're all on the same page.

Would love to find a fun #MG magical adventure. Think #EllaEnchanted for a new generation. #MSWL

On this #MSWL Day, I’m aiming high: Agents, I would be absolutely over the moon to get a modern-day Phantom Tollbooth. Adventure, innocence, sophistication, and my god the wordplay. My inbox awaits the next Lands Beyond.

MG (young or mature, w/or w/o illustrations, traditional or graphic novels): adventure plots, fantasy drawing from mythologies outside the Western and/or white canon, classics rebooted, LGBTQIA+ fantasy & magic realism, explorations of subcultures, hidden history. #MSWL

Middle-aged/older women on adventures! Adventure does not have an age limit! #MSWL
