@HannahFergesen Great! Do you think there is any current interest in a YA Shakespeare retelling? Not high school drama club. Contemporary woven with magical elements 💫 PS still waiting for the teen to #stressbake the cake.

I definitely think so! Retellings are timeless - the main thing, IMO, is to make it relatable for a contemporary audience. You’re retelling Romeo and Juliet for a modern audience, just as an example - consider that we’ll ask you why, and why now? #askagent
