It's #MSWL day! Send me your voice & character driven stories about the immigrant experience, nonfiction projects with a super cool hook, super duper deadpan or dark humor, international mythology, mental health. Books that make the world a lil nicer. #MG #YA #PB

I’m seeking #MG and #YA that explores the mythology and folklore of cultures from around the world by #ownvoices writers. Would love to see this in a graphic novel! #MSWL

#MSWL I have LITERALLY been begging for YA Fantasy rooted in a Native American tribe's mythology. If any native writers feel confident enough to send me their work, I'd be so happy to read it!

Happy #MSWL Day! I'm looking for commercial, literary and upmarket fiction for both adult and YA. I love mysteries, historical, magical realism, myth retellings, novel retellings, psychological thrillers/suspense, psychological/literary horror...

I want Urban Fantasy, Fantasy, Historical - all inspired or utilizing non American/European mythology. Give me monsters and legends and traditions from worlds we don't often see in the mainstream. #MSWL

Time to share my #MSWL! For SFF: Black Mirror-esque thrillers that imagine the dark and twisted places tech could take us. My fave eps were "Nosedive" and "Men Against Fire." Also want fantasies built on myths and legends, especially from diverse cultures.

I'm also always on the hunt for MG/YA reluctant-reader NF: Unsolved mysteries! Folklore/myths with a NF spin! Spies! #MSWL

I'd really love stories that breathe new life into classic fairytales and myths. Would definitely like to see a fresh take on something like mermaids. #MSWL

Dorian Maffei @DorianMaffei · 1 Aug 2018

Looking for lesser-known fairy tales reimagined and mythology, folklore, or fables from different parts of the world! #mswl

You know what'd be cool to see more of in YA Fantasy? Mythologies no one has read before, like the hundreds of Native American tribes, or the 54 countries and thousands of tribes within Africa, or Haittian or Persian or Hittite. Something that can open our eyes and minds. #MSWL

and lastly (for now), on my #MSWL, I'd love to see a spooky, modern retelling of any of the classical Mythology stories set in the PNW. Think Lizzie Bennet Diaries, but with creepy mythology characters instead. (please, someone, give me this, I NEED IT)
