MG

Stephanie Stein @stephlystein · Feb 12

I turned 30 (!!!) last weekend, an occasion I'm seizing to share my #MSWL this year:
- sweeping YA romance
- ✨queer magic✨
- savvy, commercial MG fantasy
- joyful queer & POC stories
- & POC authors with something to say
- emotional contemporary MG
- cozy af graphic novels

Getting some traction for an old #mswl tweet so thought I should update with what I am actively looking for RIGHT NOW: Crime and psychological thrillers with a very, very, very clear hook, and wonderful MG - warm, funny, contemporary, magical - anything with a great voice!

Also my eternal #MSWL is a project that features horses in some unique way (LOVED Sawkill Girls and The Scorpio Races). #MG or #YA

Lauren is open to queries! @laurenspieller · Feb 10

I would really like to find a 30-40k MG Fantasy. Something short and sweet and magical. #mswl

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Feb 10

For me, it's all about voice. Sometimes it's the project that I least expect that pulls me in. If in doubt (and if it is something that I represent😀), query! #MSWL #MG #YA #Adult

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Feb 10

For #MG I would love a sweeping fun adventure, contemporary that deals with the growing pains of middle school in a sweet way, or something that is atmospheric w/ just a hint of magic (to name a few!) #MSWL

I’m ALWAYS looking for underrepresented voices and stories told through new or unique lenses #MSWL #YA #MG #Adult

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Feb 10

I’m OFFICIALLY open to queries again!! PLEASE fill up my inbox. I’m actively taking on new clients & can’t wait to see your project! I represent #MG, #YA and #Adult and you can query me here: querymanager.com/query/Kristy_H… #MSWL #querytip

I've received a wave of queries from incredibly talented LGBT authors lately, so it seems like a good time to send the reminder: I'm always looking for diverse voices of ALL varieties and cultures, in YA/Adult/MG. I want to know your unique story. #mswl #ownvoices

Finally saw Midsommar last weekend. Still thinking about this scene.

What I loved about it is that the horror is always out in the open. There's no dark. You can't turn away. And what's scariest sometimes is what you can see and not ignore.

#MSWL: #YA folk horror #MG weirdness

Replying to @erin_clyburn

I'm hungry for middle grade. I would also love more literary YA. & I would love an adult memoir/nonfic with an amazing hook (think MY BRAIN ON FIRE, EDUCATED, or FULL BODY BURDEN, not that summer you spent nannying in Europe [I'm sorry but I see so many queries like this]). #MSWL

In MG I'm really drawn to books that include deeply flawed adult characters who influence the narrative beyond the standard parent/teacher roles. Examples: SEE YOU IN THE COSMOS by Jack Cheng; THE BOOK OF BOY by Catherine Gilbert Murdock. #MSWL

Sam B. Farkas @SamBFarkas · Feb 5

My SFF feelings apply to YA, too -- although in YA I am more open to Contemporary Fantasy/Paranormal than I am in Adult.

In YA and MG, I'm really looking for everything and anything, but lately my tastes have skewed more Contemporary. #MSWL

I would very much love to see a non-white author reimagine The Secret Garden for today’s middle grade readers. #mswl
