Looking for a middle grade book topic? Project Middle Grade Mayhem has the answer


Are you trying to figure out what your next middle grade book should be about? Here’s a link to a great interview with a middle school librarian in Ohio with some interesting insights into the pre-teen/tween mind. One of my critique partners discovered the Project Middle Grade Mayhem blog and guided me to this interview. Even if, like me, you’re not a middle grade writer, you’ll probably find something interesting and educational on their website. Their archive goes back three years and the topics range from interviews to book reviews to discussions on writing craft.

And, if you are a middle grade writer, then you might be interested in applying to join the Mayhem team. They’re taking applications for two new members until November. Here’s the link to the application page:


Good luck!
