This is a huge ask, but something I think about often: 100 Years of Solitude, but about a family from a marginalized community in the South. A multi-generational saga with magic realism. (Who knows; someone might be writing this!) #MSWL
Hannah Fergesen @HannahFergesenReally in the mood for something weird and beautifully written right now. Give me your Wilder Girls, your Annihilations, your twisting, bizarre horror, your incredibly human science fiction. Give me your wildest words. #MSWL
#MSWL for PBs here: narrative non-fiction, that is NOT biographies. Think SKULLS by Blair Thornburgh, or PEOPLE DON'T BITE PEOPLE by Lisa Wheeler. Give me interesting perspectives and facts and knowledge!
I want to see YA or adult horror/spec fic that's deeply rooted in character (We Have Always Lived in the Castle, Baby Teeth). A lyrical spec fic like The Dreamers. I am forever dying for something you could comp to Never Let Me Go. #MSWL
An engaging adult nonfiction project about a historical figure(s) whose story hasn't been told. (Same goes for a picture book bio.) My dream would be an adult bio with a science component, like The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. #MSWL
Retellings - Give me your obscure or different retellings where the princess saves the prince (or the other princess 😉) where it's clear it's a retelling but at the same time completely unique (like Cinder) #MSWL
Nivia Evans @NiviaEvansHi Universe,
It's me. I know I ask for a lot of things, but could you be kind enough to send me a ms about black women who are witches that isn't steeped in black pain but is about a community coming together or a woman falling in love or something full of joy.
K, thnx #mswl
Because it's a perennial #mswl
#MSWL. Looking for romantic comedies and women's fiction that is Up Lit and deals with female relationships and family secrets. I also enjoy historical fiction. Would also love to find some Middle Grade. And I love stories set in the South and Southern Gothics.
