- Mythology! Fairytales! Folklore! (Especially from non-European cultures!)
- Magical realism! Witchery! Magic rooted in nature!
- Atmospheric, gentle fantasy a la Studio Ghibli!
- Fantasy & science fiction rooted in inclusive world-building!
#MSWL boost & update.
I'm currently in the mood for:
-more Fantasy Romance, please!
-Crime fiction featuring marginalized POVs and/or by marginalized creators for all ages!
-Anything comped to The Picture of Dorian Gray and/or The Count of Monte Cristo

Hi, #WritingCommunity! At long last, my #MSWL is finally up. 🎉 If you read my wish list and want to query me, please follow the submission guidelines at the bottom of my MSWL page.
Happy #FlipPit! My #MSWL will go up next week on manuscripwishlist.com, but until then, here's the gdoc: bit.ly/janechunmswl
Seeking mostly #A with some #MG #YA #NA in #AC #CON #CLIFI #F #FIC #GF #GN #HF #LF #MEM #NF #SF #SPF #UF #UP #W #WF. See my MSWL for more details!
Can't do #pitdark today but I *WANT* you to query me with:
--dark academia in YA/Adult
--grounded, scary YA Fantasy
--thrillers/suspense in YA/Adult
I am especially keen to find these written by BIPOC! We need more of those voices on shelves! #mswl
So shoutout to @mishma on this: give me fake dating fun but like in magical bookshop; or best friend's road trip before witch college starts.
Why does fantasy always have to be so end of the world serious? Give Ted Lasso/What We Do in the Shadows vibes #MSWL
Also if you've written a YA Thriller or Horror, I'd love to see it. As well, select YA Fantasy will also be considered. YA with a quirky unique cast of characters is a yes, please!

Keir Alekseii @KeirAlekseiiIt's finally here! I am so pleased to tell the world that @smlechon and I are now Associate Agents at Azantian Lit! Many thanks to @jenazantian and the ENTIRE team at ALA. You have all been incredible, insightful and kind. I am honored to be part of the team 💖💖💖 pic.twitter.com/4uZu9L256c
Some of my favourite fantasy authors: Robin Hobb, Sharon Shinn, Lois McMaster Bujold, Jacqueline Carey, Charles de Lint, Guy Gavriel Kay, Adrian Tchaikovsky, Brian McClellen. If your fantasy feels like theirs, then send it to me! #MSWL
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.
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/?
