I want to read something about kids going on adventures #mswl

@stephlystein Is there anything you’ve really yearned for lately in your inbox? #okscbwichat

Always! I'm dying for some deeply emotional MG contemporary, smart MG fantasy/adventure, and a sweeping, EPIC YA romance. More of my recent wishlist items are on the hashtag #MSWL! #okscbwichat

💞 Also related, but I'm a sucker for contemp fantasy too! 🤸🏽‍♀️I'm a kid at heart, and to this day, I am convinced there is magic right around the corner, waiting to take me on the adventure of my life (and defeat some villians who maybe had nice hearts once upon a time) MG. #MSWL

Deeba Zargarpur @deebazargarpur · Mar 20

😂 Humorous and witty picture books! Would love something whimsical featuring a duo of adventure (and trouble making) siblings. #MSWL

On the subject of middle-grade, I'm still not seeing enough comedy by women. I continue to wax about it, but @sharnajackson's HIGH RISE MYSTERY is the perfect example of a funny, clever adventure with all the life and representation that I'm looking for.

I'm keen to escape into fun and funny stories at the moment. If you're writing a funny MG or a joyful MG adventure (including graphic novels), get in touch! #mswl

My Hollywood peeps...a question for you? Why can’t we get some Black kids doing light, fun stuff? Going on adventures? Like, what’s it take? Societal ills need to be addressed. Racism gotta get got. There are still 19 notable slaves yet to get a biopic. I get it.

This is one of my eternal #MSWL’s. I’d really love some middle grade here. Think Goonies. Think space adventure. Think Indiana Jones. Think Flipped. Think Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys. Maybe a contemporary about a boy gymnast. Something! Anything light & fun with diverse characters.

So, what I want is:
- A strong voice and clear concept that grabs you immediately
- Straightforward language
- Age appropriate story

If this is you and you are writing funny, magical, adventure or detective MG stories pleeease send in!

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Feb 10

For #MG I would love a sweeping fun adventure, contemporary that deals with the growing pains of middle school in a sweet way, or something that is atmospheric w/ just a hint of magic (to name a few!) #MSWL

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Jan 31

Closing out the day & week with a #mswl: I love middle grade adventure series (whether paranormal, sci-fi, or fantasy) with lots of heart & humor. If that's what you're querying, I'd love to see your project!

So, if you are an author of quirky, adventurous, challenging and bold sci-fi, fantasy, and horror, please be in touch. And if you are an author who isn’t quite sure whether your work is for the YA or adult market, query me and we’ll figure it out.

Last year, the PW salary survey reported that Latinx people only made up 3% in the industry.

As a Latina editor, I can use my acquiring power to buy and booze the stories of Latinx people. And this is how I can do my part for #DignidadLiteraria.

Agents, my MG & YA #MSWL is:

✨ Contemporary; slice of life; coming of age; LGBTQIA+; coming out stories
✨ Mysteries and adventures
✨ Paranormal/supernatural especially brujxs, witches, vampires, wolves
✨ Plays with tropes
✨ Comps to DON’T DATE ROSA SANTOS, LOVE SUGAR MAGIC
