MG

In MG & YA: I ❤️ stories that feel a little off-kilter. Something is up in the town/neighborhood & it may be otherworldly...or is it? That kind of thing #mswl

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 21 Apr 2019

Side note: I love big-hearted middle grade, regardless of genre. I love kids who are both brave and vulnerable; stories about finding your place of belonging, and learning whose opinions matter to you--and whose do not. #mswl

I'd also like a MG realistic/contemporary series. Something like Jason Reynold's TRACK series. I'd also be super excited to find brilliant literary standalone in MG. Something like WHEN YOU REACH ME or THE THING ABOUT LUCK. #mswl

I'm also searching for a MG series: something big & fun! It could be set in our world or a secondary world fantasy. I'd love it to be fun & perhaps funny. Ideally it has a high concept, but most important to me is that it has that page-turning quality & irresistible voice. #mswl

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · 21 Apr 2019

For MG and YA, I love books that explore family dynamics. I can go both ways here: books exploring family problems, or books where the family acts as something of refuge from the main conflict. #mswl

Hello! I remain excited to sign up new MG & YA authors in 2019! I love anything from quiet middle grade standalones to high concept YA series, and everything in-between, so if you're querying MG or YA, please consider sending my way! A thread with some specific #mswl items...

I don’t get a lot of nonfiction in my inbox, but I would love to see more. Especially for YA & MG. I like baseball, sports in general, food, cooking, baking, lgbt+ studies, and little known women of history. Please send me more NF! #mswl

As a huge astronomy buff myself, and in lieu of the first image of a black hole being released, I would love to get some more #YA and #MG submissions with characters who have a passion for fields in STEM. THE LAST TIME WE SAY GOODBYE is a perfect example of this #MSWL #amagenting

Would love to find a #MG or #YA novel that will make me cry! #MSWL @ManuscriptWList

I have so many wonderful funny books on my list right now, but I'd love to read a sensitive, tender-hearted mg tearjerker #mswl

Léonicka @leonicka · 17 Apr 2019

Looking at sales reports this morning and yo. The appetite for funny illustrated middle grade is HIGH and not stopping. Capt Underpants: 1997; Dork Diaries: 2001; Wimpy Kid: 2007. We're just about due for another breakout series. If you're writing it send it to me. #MSWL

#MSWL Please send me stories about learning how to lose (or handle rejection) with grace.

#MG especially, but also #PB and #YA.

Karen Chaplin @CapChapReads · 16 Apr 2019

I would love a poignant mg novel that explores ADHD and Aspergers and all the social issues that come along with navigating middle school. #MSWL
