🦇Cat Scully is working on Jennifer Strange🦇 @CatMScullyMiddle grade horror IS ABSOLUTELY A THING.
It exists. It's scary.
But not too scary.
Middle grade horror isn't only "spooky" it is also scary. Twelve-year-old scary. twitter.com/julianalbrandt…
I love MG horror!!! #mswl
My indefinite graphic novel #mswl:
-middle grade story about a kid and their deep relationship with dancing
-middle grade or YA story about a kid juggling two environments, “code switching”, and seeing their beloved neighborhood changing because of gentrification
Peter Knapp @petejknappHere are just SOME of the things on my #mswl in 2019 (but I of course often fall in love with the thing I didn't know I was looking for)... (1/13)
If you're querying MG or YA, here is a good sense of my #mswl for 2019! But of course one of the best feelings is falling in love with the story I didn't know I needed, so please consider submitting to me even if you're not sure if it's on my wish list!
Peter Knapp @petejknappWriters: I am hungry and excited to sign new clients in 2019, so if you're querying a MG or YA, please consider querying me! You can learn how to do so here: parkliterary.com/get-in-touch/ #mswl #askagent #tenqueries #mg #ya
It’s a full-on snow day here in Byn Mawr. Reminds me of the nor’easter that forced kids to stay the night at schools back in November…say, wouldn’t that be a fun premise for an MG book? My third grader dreams of it #wishlistWednesday #MSWL abcn.ws/2FpxPsj via @ABC News
Léonicka @leonicka#TheDragonPrince is back! So excited to watch Season 2. Yes, I am an adult. No, I don't have kids. Mind your business.
Magic, warring kingdoms, beautifully diverse characters. This is everything I want in a middle grade fantasy! #MSWL

Terrie Wolf @AKA_TerrieCapers! Over the top, I didn’t see that coming, who got away with what? Capers. Think Oceans 11 and Oceans 8, Fun With Dick and Jane, or Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, to name a few. #MSWL
I second Terri’s #MSWL - but for MG and/or YA, pretty please!
I've got a #mswl! I'd LOVE to see a #middlegrade or #youngadult novel w/POC Jewish characters, preferably by an #ownvoices author. Although I'm not currently open to submissions I am open for that. Use my submission guidelines emeraldcityliterary.com/lindaepstein/ & ignore the auto response.
Marisa DiNovis @dinovismsWhere are all the girls and/or queer kiddos who are really into sports in kid lit? The narratives about relationships with your body and your friends and your crushes, through the lens of your athleticism and relationship to sports? #MG and #YA! #mswl
Hey hi this is literally my dream project! #mswl
