Myth

Mara Delgado-Sanchez exige #WandaRenuncia 🇵🇷 @little_mswriter · Jan 18

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

Savannah is headed to BEA, y’all @slbrooks91 · Jan 11

#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!

Kat Kerr @thekatsmews · 26 Sep 2018

#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.

Weronika E. Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · 26 Sep 2018

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!

Alex Arnold @alexyarnold · 13 Sep 2018

New takes on myths and fairy tales from non-western cultures #MSWL

Lisa Abellera @LisaAbellera · 12 Sep 2018

A little late to #MSWL today but love to see Adult, YA, or MG fantasy based on Filipino mythology and folklore.

Sarah Guan @Sarah_Guan · 12 Sep 2018

#MSWL: fairytale and mythology retellings, especially in unusual or unexpected settings, and especially if reimagined to give agency to the marginalized. No damsels, no white knights, all underdogs.

Wendi Lulu Gu @WendiLuluGu · 12 Sep 2018

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

Alexandra Weiss @akaweiss · 12 Sep 2018

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!
