Myth

Taylor Thompson @taylormegon · Jun 5

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

I'd like a MG Fantasy that features lesser-known creatures of myth and legend (be that because they don't figure as prominently in mythology, or because they are from traditions ignored by the European-centric literary canon). #mswl

If you're going to base your world in mythology/historical time periods, please give me non-Western settings. #MSWL

Hey, authors who are knitters--how about a book that revolves around "the sweater curse" and the magic (or myth) therein? #MSWL

Topics on my picture book wish list: the Wheel of the Year; cultural traditions/history; tales of mythology and lore; nature-based nonfiction; and ghosts. #MSWL
