Myth

I'd really love stories that breathe new life into classic fairytales and myths. Would definitely like to see a fresh take on something like mermaids. #MSWL

Looking for lesser-known fairy tales reimagined and mythology, folklore, or fables from different parts of the world! #mswl

You know what'd be cool to see more of in YA Fantasy? Mythologies no one has read before, like the hundreds of Native American tribes, or the 54 countries and thousands of tribes within Africa, or Haittian or Persian or Hittite. Something that can open our eyes and minds. #MSWL

and lastly (for now), on my #MSWL, I'd love to see a spooky, modern retelling of any of the classical Mythology stories set in the PNW. Think Lizzie Bennet Diaries, but with creepy mythology characters instead. (please, someone, give me this, I NEED IT)

I'm still really looking for an amazing YA Fantasy #ownvoices manuscript based off Native American/Indigenous American mythology or tribal lore! I still really want this story written by a Native American writer. Where are you?! #MSWL

*Raises hand* Have ya'll forgotten the Mexican vamps I blessed you with? Reminder here: bit.ly/1KXWwn3. Anyway, I never stopped stanning vampires. Always up for non-western mythology based/POC vamps *whispers* and werewolves...#MSWL

#MSWL Urban Fantasy all ages, based off lesser-known legends and myths. Give me creatures that require research, that you don't see in every scary movie.

Would love a Polish historical or Polish-inspired fantasy. a retelling of Prince Krakus and the dragon or Princess Wanda, featuring Poludnica, Lakanica, and other myths 💫 #MSWL

I want a mythology retelling with a contemporary PNW twist more than I want most things in life. Or a convincing contemporary YA fantasy (magic or monsters!) that really pushes into its setting. #MSWL

Really craving something that is: dark, subversive, literary, haunting, folkloric, mythical, and utterly irresistible #MSWL
