Magical Realism

Steven Salpeter @StiSal · Apr 2

In YA, I’d love to see more high concept coming of age stories: self-contained conflicts where teens learn about themselves against the odds: Magical realism; contemporary fairies; realistic YA mysteries or thrillers with a sense of place #mswl

I’d love to learn more about the Latinx experience and hope to see more literary or commercial fiction submissions of heartfelt contemporary novels for adults featuring Latinx characters, Latinx family stories or thrillers, adventures, fantasy, and magical realism #mswl

I'm looking for #middlegrade and #youngadult stories. I like realistic contemporary; magical realism; well done retellings of fairytales, folklore, legends; love stories; most anything feminist af. I don't like horror, thrillers, murder mysteries, or anything super scary. #MSWL

(And for the search engines: that’s, yes; please send me adult or YA second-world fantasy with Jewish elements, or YA Jewish magical realism, Jewish Speculative fiction, literary Jewish fantasy novels, et cetera #mswl)

#MSWL I would love to get a magical realism book. Something like SAWKILL GIRLS, or WICKED DEEP.

Renewing my #MSWL for atmospheric reads, and magical realism.

Magical realism is something I love overall and would like to see more of, both in YA and adult. Would love to have some Latinx voices in for this one! #MSWL

Agents—My new year’s resolution is to acquire a voice-driven #MG (I like contemporary and magical realism!) #MSWL

And I always have room for more brilliantly crafted middle grade. My big loves are contemporary, historical fiction and magical realism. #mswl

#MSWL would love a Christmas romance filled with magic realism. Give me Santa, hidden secrets, wishes coming true, North Pole, lots of snow, whatever it is, let me feel the magic!
