“I am on the hunt for non-fiction in MG. Show me glimpses of history that haven’t been taught to younger students before, collections of pieces, anthologies.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

For graphic novels both MG and YA, give me your messy, flawed, embarrassing, relatable coming-of-age. Think Roller Girl, Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up with Me, Invisible Emmie, El Deafo, Stargazing, Check Please.

Again in MG, I’d love to find more grounded or just slightly speculative adventure stories. Spies, detectives, quest and adventure seekers. I’m a sucker for a good competition!

On the more fantastical side of MG, I love weird! Send me the stories that Henry Selick would turn into animated movies.

In MG, I love heart-tugging, honest voices that are either grounded or have a slight magic touch. Think Tae Keller, Karina Yan Glaser, Rebecca Stead.

It’s that time of year when fall submissions start flying, so here’s a little #MSWL thread! Big picture, I’m acquiring MG and YA novels and graphic novels in all genres and am always looking for more underrepresented voices in all categories.

Penny Moore @literarypenny

When I was a kid, I had to change elementary schools four times across different countries and states. It was difficult for me to make friends and adjust every time. I’m sure a lot of children go through this, and it’s hard because they never have control in these situations.

Often times parents have to move for work or family dynamics change in a way that requires them to be uprooted from familiar places. So I think it’d be great to see more coming-of-age MG stories about transient children, especially ones with diaspora backgrounds. #MSWL

#MSWL - I need a gripping, chilling YA mystery. A laugh out loud MG. And some striking voices!

And I’d LOVE a great upmarket adult mystery or romantic suspense!

I really love finding a good magical MG novel, but I’m open to a wide range here. Voicey contemporaries, mystery, magical realism/contemporary fantasy, graphic novels, historical fiction, verse, epistolary. When in doubt, send it my way! #MSWL
