And in adult, captivating voices, grounded fantasy, and settings that feel like a character themselves (in either realistic or speculative works)

In YA I’m looking for contemporary from underrepresented voices, grounded fantasy/horror/magical realism – always stories that have an engaging commercial plot, and deeper themes #MSWL #YA

I’m particularly eager for MG – contemporary stories, stories with a dash of magic, and more literary fantasy (the sort of books that are magical for kids and their adults) #MSWL #MG

tl;dr When I took a fantasy literature class in college, it started with British folklore, then King Arthur then LOTR. These are still the foundations of most fantasy stories. Why?

I'd also love to see historical fantasy (which is hard because you have to world build AND do tons of research, I know) about very specific times and places that aren't England during medieval times.

Further, our fantasy now is very heavily influenced by Tolkien and he set out specifically to write a "mythology for England". And what I'd love to see is a "mythology of [X non-western] country." (2/?)

An update to an on-going #MSWL. I love non-western fantasy. And some people seem to think "just making it up" is non-western. It's not. So much of the fantasy we are familiar with is rooted in European folklore (fairies, dwarves, etc). 1/?

For my personal #MSWL I adore a wide range of genres but especially sci-fi, fantasy, horror and romance (or any mix of the above!) Particular interest in stories with LGBTQ+, disabled and diverse characters. Incidental representation a plus - no more bury your gays pls! #WMPitch

More high concept high fantasy in the YA space. I get a lot of plots that feel familiar and therefore unpitchable. I want something with a really strong hook. #MSWL

#MSWL someone I 💜 & his brother grew up in Miami & would escape on their little outboard motor boat into the ocean to fish or scuba dive. When life at homes not perfect, the ocean's a great escape. Give me historical 1960s Miami, two brothers, the ocean. Realistic or fantasy...

"Sci-fi & fantasy novels. I love them. I read a ton of them. But they have to be accessible. What does that mean? It means that readers who don't traditionally pick up much sci-fi/fantasy, can pick up one of these novels & enjoy it.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
