when i updated my website, i also updated my wishlist! please bookmark this for the new year, when i finally, at long last, reopen to queries! #mswl #amquerying #querytip
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
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
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
✨ @kzabrekkeri'm all for the Longing but i want more stories that explore already established relationships that have tension and fraction stemming from good people trying their best, growing and changing and learning, and just as often, failing and screwing up or making the wrong choices PLS
This! Give me people in healthy relationships going on adventures, facing everyday life together, &/or navigating self-work with each other’s support. That shit’s my jam 🥰 #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.
Talia Benamy @taliabenamyOn 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.
A THOUSAND TIMES YES! #MSWL

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharptaking a quick break from editing to post a few #mswl wishes!
I can't tweet everything I want here, so please don't take this as a complete list
remember I am an EDITOR not an agent--please research the publisher I work for before sending, make sure we're a fit
here we go...
YA - I will consider ANYTHING that's YA, but more specifically...
**fantasy--ALL types, yes even paranormal
**also something spooky, I want chills when I read
**and sci-fi - I particularly like sci-fi with a thriller element and it has to have a lot of action/adventure
