Kaye Dreams of Fluffy Romcoms @gildedspineThis is your Wednesday reminder that if you are a marginalized author writing a magical school, I AM SO HERE FOR IT AND YOU. Write it. Please.
Also, there are no limits to writing magical schools with different functions, experiences and value. Do not cancel yourself out.
YES. I'm all about this!! #MSWL
I'm also all about epic, sweeping fantasies. I'd love to see thoughtfully built, fresh-feeling worlds (bonus points if they contain rich magic systems), inhabited by complex characters. And I'm always excited to see fantasy from diverse voices! #MSWL
Hali Baumstein @halibaumsteinOh hey, #MSWL day! I don't take unsolicited subs, but agents, here's what I'm looking for these days...
In YA, I would love to find a near-future sci-fi in the vein of Black Mirror or Orphan Black. I also just saw the film Ex Machina, which asks incredibly fascinating questions about AI. #MSWL
Hali Baumstein @halibaumstein#MSWL!!! I love stuff that feels like it SHOULD be sci-fi... but it could actually happen. twitter.com/ShuttleCDRKell…
Also #MSWL--any story that was inspired or could be a topic covered on two of my fave NPR podcasts, Hidden Brain and Invisibilia.
Penny Moore @precociouspennyI want fresh YA SFF projects that are rooted in non European cultures and have strong worldbuilding. The less derivative the better. #mswl
