- speculative fiction
(I prefer grounded, literary sci-fi + fantasy. no secondary worlds, but rather our world steeped in liminal magic and/or technology. anything creepy, toothy, gritty, strange, something that sends a shiver down your spine.)

Or a dash of speculative in contemporary is great too! For YA fantasy, I love swoony, action-packed stories with fresh magic systems and diverse worldbuilding #MSWL.

I'm trying to put my #mswl together for y'all but every time I write something I want to read I get way too specific about it

like yes please I would like a queer retelling of the Morrígan myth set during the Irish War of Independence with speculative magic vibes

I’d LOVE to see MG and YA contemporary graphic novel scripts (magical realism is good too). Author only, author/illustrator, or team—I’ll look at all. #MSWL #WritingCommunity #diversity #inclusive Query me via Query Manager.
