#MSWL LGBTQA always welcome. I’d love some YA f/f retellings or a great, high concept contemporary YA.

This is *very* specific, but I'd love to see a #YA retelling of the myth of Cupid and Psyche. It's my favorite. #MSWL

"Hmm...I'll also do some dark, literary middle grade...Ooo, is that a retelling? Of the Vanishing Hitchhiker? Throw that on... #MSWL ...

#mswl still looking for a Lost Boy retelling: male POV, delves into HOW (fell out of carriages as babies), identity #YA #NA
Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · Feb 8
A very dark fairy tale retelling for YA. Think "The Bloody Chamber" by Angela Carter in novel-form for a slightly younger audience. #MSWL
Vicki Lame @thedaysbetween · Feb 8
Retellings (adult or YA) that are whip smart and full of complex, rich characters (think Jane Steele), YA verse novels #MSWL

#MSWL something.... magical, be it magical realism, magical love story, magical re-telling, or a sci-fi that's really like magic. Hit me!

#MSWL : Re-tellings for any age group (fairy tale & mythology) are always on my wishlist as are books WITHOUT vampires & werewolves.

Can we do a gender bender Alice in Wonderland retelling? Please? #MSWL
Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Nov 8
#MSWL : a YA re-telling of Gawain and the Green Knight. Or maybe Beowulf? No idea what these would look like, but I'd love to see them.
