Middle grade animal (or animal-adjacent...) (light) fantasy, because I still desperately need something to fill the Wild Robot-shaped hole in my heart. 🤖💖 #mswl

Jordan Hamessley @thejordache · Mar 14

If you have middle grade or YA project that feels like #OneDayAtATime with all of that amazing diverse representation, please send it my way. I’ll need to fill the hole created by its cancellation. #mswl

It’s #piday! I’d love to see more STEM MG & YA in my inbox ☺️ #mswl

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Mar 14

#mswl - a sweeping middle grade series with heart and humor! Related, but more specifically: a middle grade series with puzzle-y elements. And, always, middle grade with magic, especially cozy magic!

While I’m more partial to (keylime and apple) pie than pi, I sure do love a fun math book that might have had me loving math more as a kid. In honor of Pi Day tomorrow, I'd love something like BEDTIME MATH or for MG like MISCALCULATIONS OF LIGHTNING GIRL #WishlistWednesday #MSWL

Thao Le @ThaoLe8 · Mar 12

I'm preparing to reopen to queries next week and wanted to share my current #mswl:

Contemporary Fantasy in the vein of the films About Time and Your Name
Diverse MG like Aru Shah and the End of Time and Amina’s Voice
Foodie Magic like Chocolat and Garden Spells
LGBTQ Retellings

Does anyone have a a manuscript with delicious food playing a starring role in it? I’d love to read some gorgeous descriptions of food! Bonus points if YA or MG sci-fi/fantasy! #mswl

Seeing some great #MSWL tweets today from agents I admire. In that spirit, I'd love to share some of mine!

- MG or YA fiction with a character who might become AOC-- that spirit, that drive, that persistence would make for a great story!
- always looking for funny

I’d really love a YA or MG fantasy rooted in Korean culture right now! I’ve been looking to sign once since I’ve started agenting, so yeah, let’s catch this great white whale! #mswl

Alyssa Eisner Henkin @AgentHenkin · Mar 1

To kick off the First #FeelGoodFriday: 11-Year-old Girl Has Been Granting the Simple Wishes of Nursing Home Patients! This would be a sweet MG book too wouldn't it? #MSWL #intergenerational @Ludington this reminds me of your grandparents event Sunday! goodnewsnetwork.org/11-year-old-gi…

I get a lot of great queries from marginalized voices (thank you, keep them coming!!), and one gap I've noticed is characters with disabilities. Define that however you choose, but I want to see more of this kind of representation in kidlit, and on my list specifically. #MSWL

John Cusick @johnmcusick

Hellooo #amwriting friends, I am looking to sign new authors, so here's a #MSWL thread. (And for new followers, please note I'm only seeking books for the kidlit market at present).

As a colleague pointed out to me, you can find truth in tragedy, but you can also find truth in joy. I'd love to see YA and MG that find truth in joy. Give me your funny books, effervescent love stories, your joyous and triumphant journeys, adventures, relationships. #MSWL

Penny Moore @precociouspenny · Feb 27

I’m going to put it out there again. I’d really love to see younger YA contemporary that focuses on young teens starting high school for the first time with all of the mixed up feelings that come along with them!

And as always, send me great MG of all genres! #mswl

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · Feb 27

#MSWL: Currently, I am specifically looking for YA rom-coms, funny MG, adult suspense, and high concept Women's Fiction.
