#MSWL Contemporary fantasy that breaks the mold so hard its like the mold never even existed. No urban bounty-hunters, no small-town detectives, etc. New characters, new settings, new plots, and new perspectives only. Show me something new!

#mswl I want dense, thinky, hard SF by women. Show me the physics or the biology or the chemistry behind your world, and I'm all in.

#mswl I want fantasy with warmth to it. Write me a young girl and her horse named Lucky that go on adventures and fight against dragons and emotional hurt.

Give me classic heroes journeys with two bros or lady bros or non-binary bros just trying to muddle their way through the war. #mswl

I want stories of fundamental good and evil with beautiful, complicated characters at their core and no misogyny or racism just for the sake of historical realism. #mswl

Give me your heartwarming fantasy journeys. Your optimistic young adventurers on horses. Give me your 90’s style fantasies with progressive politics and loads of heart #mswl

Fates and Furies but with a fox-wife or a selkie or something #mswl

Denmark has erected its first statue of a Black woman. ‘Queen Mary’ honors Mary Thomas, a resister of colonial oppression pic.twitter.com/x8B6uRYMt0

Okay so Queens of the Fireburn is an incredible title for a fantasy novel, so if someone could take inspiration from this bit of history and write an epic fantasy about a trio of black women rising up and starting a magical revolution that would be great #mswl #ownvoices

#MSWL More romance in epic, high-stakes, world-ending fantasy! @NiviaEvans and I are on a quest to make this genre a thing again because "love is not dumb, it's dopamine".
