Magical Realism

Steven Salpeter @StiSal · Dec 7

I’m looking for more plot-driven contemporary fiction (realistic, magical realism, or fantasy) for adults, YA or MG or a graphic novel set in New York, Florida, California, Dallas, Houston, Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Maddison, San Juan, Seattle or Vancouver #mswl

Hi #writingcommunity! I have 9 middle-grade queries in my box right now. I WANT MORE.

Adventure, Fantasy, sci-fi, magical realism, horror, historical, everything!

Also, I am open to considering non-fiction middle-grade novels, especially LGBTQ+ and STEM for girls. #MSWL

I'm pickier with YA lately since it already makes up a large part of my list, but I'm still looking for magical realism, contemporary witches/magic, gothic stories, the influence of modern tech in romcoms, and fantasy or reimaginings that are different and fresh. #MSWL

MIDDLE GRADE:
- #OwnVoices magical realism, reimagined folk tales, and sweeping, character-driven adventures
- Literary, contemporary stories about tween female friendship and the ins and outs of tweendom (if that’s a word)

MG (young or mature, w/or w/o illustrations, traditional or graphic novels): adventure plots, fantasy drawing from mythologies outside the Western and/or white canon, classics rebooted, LGBTQIA+ fantasy & magic realism, explorations of subcultures, hidden history. #MSWL

I'd love to find magical realism/ historical fantasy along the lines of Isabel Allende's Daughter of Fortune, or Gabriel Garcia Marquez. #MSWL

AND Magical Realism! Or stories that only have a touch of magic. #MSWL

I'm also a speculative fiction (set in the contemporary world) and magical realism junkie, so dystopian elements, accessible science, and lite, real-world fantasy elements can catch my eye, too #mswl

Margo Claire @margowithan_o · Sep 24

#mswl (for agents) I'm looking for magical realism all along the spectrum from THE NIGHT CIRCUS to Helen Oyeyemi. I'm also looking for funny novels with sharp teeth and voicey novels with international settings (beyond UK, though those are of course welcome)

Diana Gill @dianagill · Sep 24

Fun, enchanting magical realism with multi-generational appeal like NATALIE TAN'S BOOK OF LOVE AND FORTUNE. #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · Sep 24

Magical realism is a thing I absolutely love. Think Practical Magic, but more romance. #MSWL

Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymonds · Sep 24

Fantasy, but make it fresh: unique settings, unusual formats, underrepresented mythology, magical realism, paranormal (yes, paranormal!). I've seen a lot of queries comping to GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE and MY LADY JANE. Keep 'em coming! #MSWL

#MSWL day is a great day to announce that I'm now ACQUIRING MIDDLE GRADE! What's on my #MG wishlist? Magical realism! Humor! Adventure! Contemporary fantasy!
