MG

I’d love to see some really fun, quirky, voicey commercial MG in my inbox as of January. (I mean, feel free to send it in December, but I’m working through my current submissions rn.) #MSWL

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

It's that time of year when I'm really in the mood for cozy mysteries. I'd be really excited to see a contemporary YA or upper MG that has diverse characters, a playful, intriguing hook, and isn't dark or super serious--like Goldie Vance / Scooby Doo / Hallmark level drama. #MSWL

I hope people understand that when agents post #MSWL wishes that's not the only kind of projects they represent. You all do know that, right? For example, many of my clients don't write any of the things I'm asking for. That's why I want them!

I want my list to be balanced with PBs, CBs, MGs, YAs. Some serious, some not; some weird & quirky, some chock full of muggles; some lighthearted, some deep & thinky. And there are all the things I don't know I want until I get them. #MSWL

I’m looking for more plot-driven contemporary fiction (realistic, magical realism, or fantasy) for adults, YA or MG or a graphic novel set in New York, Florida, California, Dallas, Houston, Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Maddison, San Juan, Seattle or Vancouver #mswl

I get a lot of Ashkenazi Conservative/Orthodox submissions, which is FINE but send me #mg & #YA novels with casual Judaism too & w/all kinds of representation like Jewish people of color; Sephardim; Mizrahi; Reconstructionist & reform; non-affiliated or practicing; atheist. #MSWL

I probably don't need to say this, but I will: I want ALL THE QUEER THINGS™️in both #MG and #YA Realistic contemporary, historical, speculative fiction, light fantasy, light scifi, mystery, romance, etc... #MSWL

Is it possible to have a #MG or #YA story about a popular kid where that's ok? I know so many of us book people felt like oddballs as kids, but what about a popular kid who's not a jerk, not getting bullied, not mean? Things HAPPEN to everyone. We all have challenges. #MSWL

I'd love to see a #mg or #YA novel with art & art museums or something historical including artists. Like Girl w/a Pearl Earring for kids or something like that? Something at the British Museum? The Louvre? Wouldn't that be awesome? #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · 3d

I've asked for this before, but I'm DYING for a #YA or #MG novel set in the Jewish Ghetto in Shanghai, preferably written by someone who's connected w/that history. It's the only kind of WW2 novel I want to read, tbh. #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · 3d

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

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · 3d

Is it possible for a #mg novel to be both high concept AND literary? If so, I want THAT. Something with a BIG hook but also beautifully written, complex characters, a story that will make me both LOL & weep. #MSWL

Kerstin Wolf @Kerstin_Wolf · 4d

#MSWL I’m open to queries until December 19th! Please send me more MG! I’d love some more middle grade!

OK, so I just updated my #MSWL.

And just as a warning, y'all....it's long.

I'm not sure if it is more or less helpful now...

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
