@Cherrita_Lee I have that one on my list, too!! Cannot wait!

Replying to @CassaCassaCassa

Oh, it is everything. The author drops hints of slavic folk lore (Dziwożona, Rusulka, oh my! 😍), and I died of happiness. You'd love the religious themes, too. Remember my #mswl for slavic retellings and folklore? This soothes that itch nicely. @glitzandshadows is marvelous.

I still very much love retellings/reimaginings, but I'm looking for fresh and unique ones that aren't Disney, Grimm fairytales, or classics like Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, etc... #mswl

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · Apr 1

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

I would LOVE (I mean REALLY love) a feminist historical Purim re-telling. Extra points if you ship Esther & Vashti. #MSWL

I'm preparing to reopen to queries next week and wanted to share my current #mswl:

Contemporary Fantasy in the vein of the films About Time and Your Name
Diverse MG like Aru Shah and the End of Time and Amina’s Voice
Foodie Magic like Chocolat and Garden Spells
LGBTQ Retellings

So if someone has a feminist YA Purim retelling or a queer Vashti/Esther story (must be YA), definitely send it to me! Doesn't matter that I'm closed to queries right now. I want to see it! Submission guidelines are here: emeraldcityliterary.com/lindaepstein/ #MSWL #amwriting #WritingCommunity

Hear me out: A Hamilton and Eliza retelling, but f/f. A revolutionary and a debutante fall in love—possibly in space—and it's complicated. #MSWL

Currently living for this modern day graphic novel retelling of LITTLE WOMEN: MEG, JO, BETH AND AMY. I'd LOVE to see a GRAPHIC NOVEL retelling of something classic but resonant for kids or teens--modern or otherwise. #mswl

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

Mara Delgado 🇵🇷 @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

8) I still have my fingers crossed for a clever retelling, a genre-crossing tale with familiar faces, but not unnecessarily faithful to the source material. It should stand independent and quite unique. #MSWL
