Myth

Weronika Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · Oct 1

I'm #MSWL-ing for re-tellings (#adult or #YA) of myths, folktales, or fairytales. Always. Bring it. More. Had the chance to look at #queries and pages for an @OpAwesome6 #passorpages, and had lots to say: bit.ly/2QisRya. I encourage you all to think through m'#querytip!

#MSWL As far as retellings go, I'd love to see more historicals, fantasies, urban fantasies, or paranormal based on Aztec myths and legends. Preferably #ownvoices please.

What is an agent thinking about when s/he's reading your query and first 250? Check out @OpAwesome6's newest #PassOrPages excerpts, on retellings of myths, folktales, and fairy tales (which I love! send if you have!): bit.ly/2NJgfDh. #queries #querytip #query #YA #MSWL

Hey! #mswl I’m looking for YA sci fi and fantasy, myth or traditional folk tale retelling-especially a Hades and Persephone retelling. Romance is definitely a plus!

New takes on myths and fairy tales from non-western cultures #MSWL

A little late to #MSWL today but love to see Adult, YA, or MG fantasy based on Filipino mythology and folklore.

#MSWL: fairytale and mythology retellings, especially in unusual or unexpected settings, and especially if reimagined to give agency to the marginalized. No damsels, no white knights, all underdogs.

It's #MSWL day! Send me your voice & character driven stories about the immigrant experience, nonfiction projects with a super cool hook, super duper deadpan or dark humor, international mythology, mental health. Books that make the world a lil nicer. #MG #YA #PB

Alexandra Weiss @akaweiss · Sep 12

I’m seeking #MG and #YA that explores the mythology and folklore of cultures from around the world by #ownvoices writers. Would love to see this in a graphic novel! #MSWL

#MSWL I have LITERALLY been begging for YA Fantasy rooted in a Native American tribe's mythology. If any native writers feel confident enough to send me their work, I'd be so happy to read it!

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 12

Happy #MSWL Day! I'm looking for commercial, literary and upmarket fiction for both adult and YA. I love mysteries, historical, magical realism, myth retellings, novel retellings, psychological thrillers/suspense, psychological/literary horror...

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Sep 12

I want Urban Fantasy, Fantasy, Historical - all inspired or utilizing non American/European mythology. Give me monsters and legends and traditions from worlds we don't often see in the mainstream. #MSWL

Susan Velazquez @susannprogress · Sep 12

Time to share my #MSWL! For SFF: Black Mirror-esque thrillers that imagine the dark and twisted places tech could take us. My fave eps were "Nosedive" and "Men Against Fire." Also want fantasies built on myths and legends, especially from diverse cultures.

Amanda Shih @amandashih · Sep 12

I'm also always on the hunt for MG/YA reluctant-reader NF: Unsolved mysteries! Folklore/myths with a NF spin! Spies! #MSWL
