I am open to multiple genres right now! #MSWL
Adult sci fi (PLEASE send me a shockingly weird and powerful space opera)
Adult fantasy (twisty world politics and shifting loyalties with magic)
Adult romance (something that walks a WF line - the queerer the better, too)
I am never going to stop loving fairytale-inspired stories like SPINNING SILVER. I want dark woods and woodsy magic, monsters that aren't what they seem, characters who take their destinies into their own hands, romance and danger, and a HEA #MSWL
Ever since I became an editor, I've wanted a GARDEN SPELLS-style project--a story about tangled family ties and old friendships, about how people fracture and mend, steeped in magic and charm and set in a town that could be anywhere, and yet... #MSWL
I'm craving THE CITY OF BRASS-style rich and intricate fantasy, with complicated family dynamics, stark political tension, sweeping romance, and hard loss; stories that (respectfully) wed historical inspiration and folklore with unexpected magic and major stakes #MSWL
In GN, looking for Fantasy with lush worlds and diverse casts. I want this to be something where magic is infused into society or daily living. A place where we're reading more for the people and place. I'd love to see an eco-one focusing on resources, too #amagenting #querytip
SYFY FANGRRLS @SyfyfangrrlsTHAT WIZARD, IS READING A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME BY STEPHEN HAWKING, AND USING MAGIC TO STIR HIS TEACUP LIKE WHAT ARE MAGICAL PHYSICS i have been thinking about this since 2004 #HPFG pic.twitter.com/QQDfBnM3np
From @susanW1F: I adore novels with a sense of mischief, powerful prose/voice, dark in unexpected ways, but never bleak. I love a contemporary, complex family story, or something with a speculative edge - ghosts, folklore, magic, ‘otherness’. Find me here: bit.ly/3dvyqWg
💞 Also related, but I'm a sucker for contemp fantasy too! 🤸🏽♀️I'm a kid at heart, and to this day, I am convinced there is magic right around the corner, waiting to take me on the adventure of my life (and defeat some villians who maybe had nice hearts once upon a time) MG. #MSWL
🔊 FANTASY! You heard it. I want it. I'm looking for lush, non-Western settings that are epic in scope, with grand magic systems. 🙏🏽 Let me escape in this world, let it be a world I WANT to escape into! Make it treacherous but alluring ala THE CRUEL PRINCE. 💫 #MSWL
Agented only #MSWL things I want across YA and adult: crossover fantasy (contemporary and not), magical realism, rom coms, rom sads, family stories, witches, vampires
Ali A Olomi @aaolomiJust as Merlin is famous in European lore as a great wizard, so too do we find mages, witches, sorcerers, and sorceresses in the Middle East and Islamic world.

An update to my #MSWL:
I'm looking for more MG & YA thrillers/mysteries in my inbox. Whether you have an unreliable narrator, a group of friends trying to solve/find something, or some weird magic going on, I'd love to see it!
Alaina Leary Lavoie @alainaskeysMy first for @BitchMedia is about the importance of having disabled authors reimagine the fairy tale canon and write our own SFF and magic stories. @DisabledWriters #CripLit #DisabledWriters bitchmedia.org/article/review…
Updated #MSWL: humorous PB's with a surprise twist, and non-fic focusing on unsung heroes (pref. #ownvoices), MG with a clear narrative arc, unforgettable characters and a strong emotional core. Stories that bring out the magic in the ordinary. And ghosts!
