I binge watched THE WORST WITCH over the weekend. Please, someone, give me an MG like that. All the magic! #MSWL

@hannahnpbowman @maxgladstone don't forget how centaurs and merfolk aren't classified as people and everyone's like oh that's fine

Re: this thread, if someone wants to write me a fantasy novel about a kid who goes to magic school but realizes the entire structure of the magical world needs to be overthrown, I would be 100% there for that. Bonus points if they have to side with the dark wizards to do it #MSWL

Magical realism in MG and YA, especially where the magic is tied to the setting or the season. Place as character is a fav story element for me #MSWL

Rena *THE SISTERS OF THE WINTER WOOD* Rossner @renarossner · 13 Sep 2018

I would really really love to find an adult upmarket, literary novel to work on. Something that will make me cry. Bonus points for magical realism. #MSWL

I’d love to see someone take a modern/contemporary well-loved/well-known story and flip it on its head to a historical. A flipped retelling if you will. Bonus points for some magical realism. #MSWL

I'd love to see more #MG and #YA fantasy adventures / magical realism stories rooted in Caribbean and Latinx cultures in my inbox 👀🌴 #MSWL

Looking for a modern-day #YA #SisterhoodoftheTravelingPants with strong, positive female friendships! Magic realism is always a plus! #MSWL

Catherine Laudone @CatherineLaud · 12 Sep 2018

It’s #MSWL day! Agents—I’m desperate to see more #MG in my inbox! Looking for voice-driven contemporary and magical realism like #Rooftoppers and historical like #TheWarThatSavedMyLife and #BostonJane Also open to a fun fantasy—looking for the next #EllaEnchanted!

Top of my #MSWL: women's fiction and romance by/about underrepresented voices. Contemporary. Historical. Contemporary or historical with a magical element. Grounded SF. Romcoms. Happy books. Also, maybe a big, sweeping gothic romance?
