Annoyingly specific #mswl: anyone have an interesting Persuasion retelling they want to throw my way? I've been working on an Austen puzzle and remembering how great and underrated that one is--exes reconnecting years later with hurt feelings and figuring out how to reconcile!
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeFor the love of all, please someone doing a retelling of this book. #MSWL
However, I would be interested in retellings from classics not often covered. Some examples I’d love to see retold are Picture of Dorian Grey, Jekyll and Hyde, Faust, Korean/East Asian legends and fables, and Mesopotamian myths. #mswl
Vex(ed and isolated since before it was cool) @The_TerroiristWell, I'm disappointed. I saw #Anne300K trending, and am saddened that it isn't about a new production of Anne of Green Gables, set 298,000 years in the future.
Well, now I'M disappointed, and fwiw, if someone queried me with this, I'd be all over it. Give me those cozy, queer-coded, futuristic sci fi retellings with cordial on the side. #MSWL

The perfect Jack and the Beanstalk, but with preppers, retelling for the modern era. Add it to my #MSWL, but make it queer, pls.
Lorraine M.L.M🍃 @authorlorraineMI'm a huge fan of fairy tales but I've not come across a lot of these featuring marginalised characters. Are fairy tale retellings that feature diverse characters marketable in the current climate? #askDVpit
The Library Owl 🎄🎅🦉 @SketchesbyBozeI’m never not thinking about St. Werburgh (died 699), who raised a beloved goose from the dead after it had already been eaten by her foe and digested. The bones took on flesh and the goose returned to life “with a glad honk.” pic.twitter.com/9Soh7dtmRo
#MSWL THIS is the retelling I'm waiting for.
Vicki Lame @thedaysbetween#MSWL Retellings, magical realism, Gothic settings, witches, vampires, genre bendy things, anything you would comp to one of my own books (Agented only)
Annie Bomke @ABLiteraryI'd love to see more retellings/reboots of movies, books, classics, etc. If you have a fresh take on a familiar story, send it my way. #MSWL
And the retelling can be loose and outside-the-box, like THE DEAD QUEEN'S CLUB. Whatever brings a fresh angle to the idea. #MSWL
