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
Jordan Coombe @Jordan_CoombeA herd of elephants marched 12 hours to the house of Lawrence Anthony after he died – the man who saved them. They stayed there silent for two days.
Exactly one year after his death, to the day, the herd marched to his house again. It is something that science cannot explain. pic.twitter.com/xWJXJW3vJw
#MSWL MG or YA magical realism exploring elephants’ special connection to death and the afterlife/ghosts/life energy
I'm pickier with YA lately since it already makes up a large part of my list, but I'm still looking for magical realism, contemporary witches/magic, gothic stories, the influence of modern tech in romcoms, and fantasy or reimaginings that are different and fresh. #MSWL
- #OwnVoices magical realism, reimagined folk tales, and sweeping, character-driven adventures
- Literary, contemporary stories about tween female friendship and the ins and outs of tweendom (if that’s a word)
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
I'm also a speculative fiction (set in the contemporary world) and magical realism junkie, so dystopian elements, accessible science, and lite, real-world fantasy elements can catch my eye, too #mswl
#mswl (for agents) I'm looking for magical realism all along the spectrum from THE NIGHT CIRCUS to Helen Oyeyemi. I'm also looking for funny novels with sharp teeth and voicey novels with international settings (beyond UK, though those are of course welcome)
Fantasy, but make it fresh: unique settings, unusual formats, underrepresented mythology, magical realism, paranormal (yes, paranormal!). I've seen a lot of queries comping to GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE and MY LADY JANE. Keep 'em coming! #MSWL
