Middle Grade

I have a question for all you authors and readers alike: what is Middle Grade?

I’ve interviewed a few authors who said they wrote Middle Grade fiction. I know what children’s books are, and YA, but what is the age range for Middle Grade books? I’m thinking of doing a series of western/fantasy books, but the theme I’m going with seems too childish for YA or New Adult, but too advanced for youngsters. So that would only leave MG as an option. I’m thinking my books would be suitable for 12-15 year olds. And does anyone know if there is a good market for MG fiction? Any advice you guys have, I’ll gladly accept! πŸ™‚

  1. Ohhh… you meant a writing category. Oh well πŸ˜› PS – I’m sure there is a huge market for that age group. I was reading like crazy at that age.

    • Yes, I was going for writing. But I liked the 11-14 age you mentioned, that’s what I would consider Middle Grade. Thanks again! πŸ˜‰ And I loved reading by that age, too!
