Hannah Fergesen @HannahFergesenI see "Satanic Panic is trending" because we're in the midst of another one. It reminds me that I really wish we had more Satanic Panic fiction that adequately explores what happened in the 80's/90's. Every time I ask for Satanic Panic narratives, I get books about -
-kids calling down Satan, which is the same trap those living during the first Panic fell into. But what I'm looking for is like, the new Crucible. With D&D and death metal and the misunderstood kids who were accused (and literally imprisoned) for magical crimes. (#MSWL I guess?)
Tiffany Shelton (she/her) 🧛🏾♀️ @TiffanyDiahannI feel like I'm just going to constantly retweet this until I find what I'm looking for in historical fiction. Even open to a gothic horror novel with BIPOC set in the 18th and 19th centuries. #MSWL twitter.com/TiffanyDiahann…
This is high on my #MSWL too!! Anyone who listened to my podcast knows how desperate I am for this in historical fiction. Please and thank you.
Morgan Al-Moor @MorganAlMoorObsessed with how GATSBY is going public domain in a couple weeks & waiting for a BIPOC author to pitch their book as "BIPOC GATSBY" or "GATSBY x Non-Western Country's 1920s". #amreading
Rachel Bass @bachelrassAggressively not thinking about This Week right now, but you know what I would love? Explicitly queer Shakespeare retellings. Sapphic Macbeth. Midsummer but queer and poly. Is this...is this my brand?? #mswl
Yes yes yes! Shakespeare is ripe for this, please send me all your queer retellings #MSWL
#DevsFX is a TV show with incredible, diverse casting that feels like the best literary spec fic out there. If you are an under repped writer cooking up something this complex and beautifully written, please send #mswl
Kacen✨🏳️🌈FELIX EVER AFTER🏳️🌈✨Callender @kacencallenderNot every book about these days has to be a dystopia. Someone, write that romance about two folks who sing to each other from their balconies and write love letters written on paper airplanes doused in Lysol.
Ali A Olomi @aaolomiJust as Merlin is famous in European lore as a great wizard, so too do we find mages, witches, sorcerers, and sorceresses in the Middle East and Islamic world.
A thread on the legendary and historic magic-workers of the Middle East

- #mswl for 2020, and also a line I am shamelessly stealing from @angelinearly
YES- send to me in the next week if you have it!! #MSWL
Hannah Fergesen @HannahFergesenI can't believe I'm saying this, but I am almost completely caught up on queries. This means I'm HUNGRY. So even though it's not an official #MSWL day, in this thread I'm going to link to old wishlist items I still want and add some new ones!
This whole #MSWL is still relevant for me!
Norma 🇵🇷🇨🇺 @normajeanesaysHappy #MSWL day! If I don’t get a romance/women’s fiction submission about a 30-year-old Latinx woman who’s throwing her quinceañera part 2 (aka the one she never had) and finally gets the boy who got away, I will flip. Think Never Been Kissed meets The Wedding Singer con azucar.
If you have this send it to me so I can send it to Norma! #MSWL
Really in the mood for something weird and beautifully written right now. Give me your Wilder Girls, your Annihilations, your twisting, bizarre horror, your incredibly human science fiction. Give me your wildest words. #MSWL
