Fantasy

In honor of Holly Black's Queen of Nothing release today, I'd love more fantasy with complicated court politics like this series. Other examples, The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkowski, and Crown Duel/Court Duel by Sherwood Smith. #MSWL

General PSA that I'm only looking for projects in the sci-fi/fantasy genres on the YA side, not adult. #MSWL

Please write me a fantasy world in which Wolfenoot is the dominant winter holiday. chicagotribune.com/dining/ct-food… #mswl

When I reopen my query inbox in January, can someone please send me a fantasy where a cat is the McGuffin? #MSWL

There are so many ways to go with this. I'd curious to see a story where this tech is commonly used. Rarely (& clandestinely) used. What we as a society & tech-wise do to combat it. What someone would do if their entire likeness &words were stolen/manipulated this way. #MSWL

As always, my tastes run character-driven with cool plot elements and a fast pace...so the ideal story for me would follow one (or a couple) POVs in this world with an overarching plot that can either be directly related or somehow just tangentially affected by this tech. #MSWL

claribel a. ortega pre-order my book, GHOST SQUAD! @Claribel_Ortega

As cool as this is (and as useful as it would be for authors with characters on their covers/character art!) all I can think of is the abuse and propaganda that will come from it 😞 twitter.com/UniverCurious/…

I've heard of tech like this that could easily be used by anyone representing living people AND voice replications. It's the tech with implications I think I'm most concerned about. That said, I think that fear makes it ripe for SFF mining so...this is a must-see #MSWL for me.

Something I VERY much want more of: submissions by Jewish people who aren't Ashkenazi! I want to see more stories by/about Jewish #POC, Sephardic, Mizrahi, & Ethiopian Jews. Love stories. Fantasy. SciFi. Humor. Historical. Non-scary mysteries. Literary. Bring 'em all! #MSWL

I prefer stories set on Earth, but I love love love portal fantasies. Send me your The Hazel Wood comps.

Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburn · Oct 24

I much prefer my fantasies without world-ending stakes. I like personal conflicts & journeys over save-the-world journeys.

Here's a specific list of the kind of darker lit I want to see. (I really, really love darker lit. It's my favorite.) If your MS fits this list, please query me! #MSWL #PitDark

For adult & YA, I gravitate more toward character-driven horror/fantasy/sci-fi than plot-driven. I prefer dark lit to reflect truths about humanity through relationships & setting over tangible monsters. I don't really get excited about werewolves, vampires, zombies, demons, etc.

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · Oct 24

If I missed your #PitDark pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. Adult: horror, thriller, SFF, cont. romance, & mystery. YA: thriller, SFF, horror, mystery, & cont. MG: SFF, mystery, cont., & horror. #diversity #MSWL #ownvoices querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.) com

I would love to read a lighthearted fantasy. I still want conflict and stakes, but it would be nice to read something that is fun and upbeat! #mswl

Steven Salpeter @StiSal · Oct 22

Hi writers. I’d love to see more YA Fantasy #mswl
