I am a voracious fantasy reader. I’m looking for BIPOC fantasies in both, YA and crossover. Give me intrigue, emotional nuance and astounding character arcs. I have always made my home in this genre. Send me some!
And I’m still looking for that Latinx fantasy! #MSWL

Countdown #MSWL Day 3:
Latinx kidlit authors, please query me! I would love to see magical realism, stories around family dynamics, fantasies steeped in mythology.
Give me everything 😍
Matt Belford @MWBelfordI seem to have gotten fewer queries towards the end of September. So if you're sitting on some epic fantasy or space opera, be sure to send it my way! #SFF #amquerying #amwriting
Also anything in between--my #MSWL isn't tied to those exclusively! Send me whatever you've got in the way of SFF!
Vicky Again 🌸 @VickyCBooksi want more fantasy novels of small town girls entering royal courts & then absolutely DEMOLISHING the entire royal system
no i don't want to see her wear pretty dresses & become one of the elite. i want her to burn. it. all. down.
I’m currently reading THE PRIORY IF THE ORANGE TREE and it had made me so itchy for a sweeping adult fantasy (MAKE🌈IT🌈QUEER), with BIPOC, women, and non binary characters at the helm, immersive & fresh world-building, & writing so stunning I’m furious I didn’t write it. ✨
As always with this time of year, send me all your witches. I’d love an adult or gothic, adult horror, and/or adult light fantasy with an unforgettable & unique setting, a fresh take or system of magic, and gorgeous writing. Queer always a plus.
Samantha Wekstein is closed to queries @SWeksteinTomorrow I reopen to queries! So here are a few #MSWL posts for when that happens!
I'd love to see a fantasy rom-com or fantasy comedy. My favorite movie is The Princess Bride after all. #MSWL
I'd love an #ownvoices upmarket 20th C historical fiction - ideally with a secret something that has to be revealed (I'm thinking ala Lovecraft Country without the Lovecraftian horror/fantasy elements, which is ridiculous to say but I want it) #MSWL
Lovecraft Country has me inspired! I’d love to see more Black fantasy novels! Give me your Afrofuturism! Your Black kids discovering time travel and new dimensions! (while leaving slavery out of it, please) #MSWL
I'm usually a strict SFF kind of girl, but guys, with the world as terrible as it is right now, I just want to read some fabulous, sexy romances--SFF or contemporary alike. So agents, send them my way! #MSWL
SelineSigil @SelineSigil9Studies into healing revealed that full moon amplified the electrical charge in living cells. A sensitive voltmeter,attached to a tree picked up a faint electrical force. However, at the time of the full moon, this force soared upward on the scale. equinoxastrology.com/LunarLore.htm pic.twitter.com/70e4zE9bWr
Michi the Adorable Tiny Demon @🏡🔥🍜📖🦄 @GeekMelangeFor the longest time I did not know just how many Filipino/a/x were writing SFF *bc the callous disregard & apathy of white fandom was erasing us.* That’s a huge reason why I grit my teeth & fight like hell for me & others to be visible & recognized in these spaces. twitter.com/BenCKinney/sta…
Thinking a little bit about #MSWL tonight! I'm actively seeking Adult SFF. I look for explosively different worlds, intricate politics,new/different presentations of magic,&sci fi that focuses on influence of tech rather than tech itself. Writing quality/originality matters most.
