I love a fractured fairy tale! But please surprise me with something new. And while talking about fairy tales and myths, I'd love a MG fantasy with the cultural specificity and the fresh contemporary voice of Sayantani DasGupta's THE SERPENT'S SECRET. #MSWL

Similarly, stories that feel like fairytales or folklore, but are completely brand new. #MSWL

#MSWL Still on the lookout for inventive fairytale or folklore retellings--especially stories that haven't been done often.

Forever and always, more retellings of lesser known mythology, fairy tales, and classical lit. Especially if it blends with an unexpected genre. #MSWL

Just finished The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden. It was beyond wonderful! Where are all of my fairytale/legend retellings? I want Eastern European and East Asian myths and legends sooo bad! #MSWL

"Dark, feminist fairy tale retelling. Something like The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter for #YA (a novel though, not short stories)." @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation/

I am opening to YA fantasy and contemporary queries! On my YA #MSWL: fantasies that are entirely new worlds,new fairytales. No generic regency-style fantasy worlds. Bring me new applications of/restrictions on new magic, uncommonly featured stars of the story, relevant parallels.

So very obsessed with Helen Oyeyemi. GINGERBREAD is beautiful, but then I had to go read all her other books. She is a treasure. Anyone working on beautiful, literary, re-imagined fairy tales with a conscious? I'm looking... #mswl
