Myth

A Woman Reading @AWomanReading · 4d

So.. I've been in #Poland for the last few weeks. Needless to say, I'm updating my #mswl. Please send me all of your royal Polish family stories (YA history, YA fantasy), stories based on Polish mythology (YA) and historical women's fiction. Who's writing about queen #jadwiga?

I hope we'll see more Jewish second-world fantasy. Jewish culture is full of myths and magic that would be fresh and breathtaking in a fantasy setting.

Hi, yes, please send these directly to my inbox. I’m here for your Ruth or Esther retelling, your golems, your genderbent Solomon, your modern Samson with an Ariana-length pony. Break my heart and take me to sit Shiva in a lush enchanted forest. Teach me about ru’ach magic. #MSWL

I love myths, legends and fairytales. I’d love to see some retellings or adaptations. They can be contemporary, historical, fantasy, etc. #MSWL

#MSWL I want to see more YA #ownvoices stories including the mythology of the Americas. I love me some Greek/Egyptian/Nordic retellings, but I'm looking for something closer to home.

Opening up our @DA_Childrens submissions for 2019! If you're working on an #ownvoices #MG adventure with an unusual mythology, a diverse #YA that's as funny as Louise Rennison, some ground-breaking children's #nonfiction #PB or ANYTHING ELSE #kidlit send it my way #MSWL

#mswl 2019: A great historical mystery with mythology and magic such as SERAFINA AND THE BLACK COAT (7/13)

I'm #MSWL-ing for re-tellings (#adult or #YA) of myths, folktales, or fairytales. Always. Bring it. More. Had the chance to look at #queries and pages for an @OpAwesome6 #passorpages, and had lots to say: bit.ly/2QisRya. I encourage you all to think through m'#querytip!

#MSWL As far as retellings go, I'd love to see more historicals, fantasies, urban fantasies, or paranormal based on Aztec myths and legends. Preferably #ownvoices please.

What is an agent thinking about when s/he's reading your query and first 250? Check out @OpAwesome6's newest #PassOrPages excerpts, on retellings of myths, folktales, and fairy tales (which I love! send if you have!): bit.ly/2NJgfDh. #queries #querytip #query #YA #MSWL

Hey! #mswl I’m looking for YA sci fi and fantasy, myth or traditional folk tale retelling-especially a Hades and Persephone retelling. Romance is definitely a plus!
