If there’s one refrain I hear from children’s book editors most regularly, it’s, “I’d love a great middle grade novel.” My response? “Me, too.” But finding good middle grade is hard, which means writing it is even harder. What makes for good middle grade, exactly? And what are agents and editors looking for? I was having this conversation with my editor friend Molly O’Neill the other day, and we decided that we’d take our musings public on our respective blogs. Before we begin that blog conversation next week, we want to hear from you: what do you want to know about middle grade? How can we help you write the great American middle grade novel…so that we can publish it?
