I binge watched THE WORST WITCH over the weekend. Please, someone, give me an MG like that. All the magic! #MSWL

The pumpkin candles are burning & fall is in the air! Please send me your dark & spooky #MG and #YA. Anything that will get me in the mood for the most wonderful time of the year🍂☕️🍂#MSWL

A YA or MG twist-y game in the vein of CARAVAL, please! #MSWL

Clelia Gore @MadmoiselleClel · 19 Sep 2018

It's fall, I'm in the mood for something spooky/eerie. PB and MG, please! #mswl

Am I too late for #MSWL Day? I’m looking for laugh-out-loud MG with a great ‘voicey’ protagonist! Also fab twisty mysteries in MG. And a swoony romance/love story in YA, especially (but not exclusively) LGBTQIA please! See my profile & sub guidelines at

Little late to #MSWL today, but I'd love for some agents to send some illustrated, quirky, pop culture adult nonfiction or some lighthearted, contemporary MG & YA with some strong nerd culture flavor! (I've been itching for some cosplay/comic con/food competition stories.)

Alex Arnold @alexyarnold · 13 Sep 2018

Would especially love a MG graphic novel that could be described in the above way! #MSWL

Alex Arnold @alexyarnold · 13 Sep 2018

Middle grade that addresses tough issues (mental illness, grief, family dynamics, etc) with a light touch and a strong dash of hope #MSWL

Alex Arnold @alexyarnold · 13 Sep 2018

Funny contemporary middle grade with a high concept twist #MSWL

Alex Arnold @alexyarnold · 13 Sep 2018

Magical realism in MG and YA, especially where the magic is tied to the setting or the season. Place as character is a fav story element for me #MSWL

Jennifer Azantian ❄️☃️❄️ @jenazantian · 13 Sep 2018

Middle grade stories that dig into the deeper questions like A WRINKLE IN TIME and THE GIVER. #MSWL (2/3)

Jennifer Azantian ❄️☃️❄️ @jenazantian · 13 Sep 2018

And since I am particularly craving MG, I'll include some of my most desired elements today. If you have these, do send them!

Creepy or spooky stories that are still age-appropriate like CORALINE. #MSWL (1/3)

Jennifer Azantian ❄️☃️❄️ @jenazantian · 13 Sep 2018

Anything mg or YA that can be comped to AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER, especially if it heals my poor Zutara-shipping heart. Most of all, I love the character interactions in ATLB, the fully-realized sweetness and depth. Plus the unique world! #MSWL
