Myth

Kelly @LitAgentKelly · Jul 1

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

Close to my heart and the top of my #MSWL—make my #PrideMonth dreams come true. Give me happy LGBTQ+ couples making the PNW home, a QPoC cryptozoologist and her artist wife discovering magic in Cascadia, or #nf stories of queer legends and revolutionaries.

On my #MSWL, I want underrepresented or new perspectives on PNW history. Give me PNW creation myths told by native writers. An early pioneer falls through time. The tale of a family of immigrants to the PNW from the contemporary frame!

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

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
