Retelling

#WritingCommunity Where are my Joan of Arc retellings? WHERE. Is anyone writing one? Published one? Should I make an #mswl tweet for it? Please I just want to read one

A couple things I REALLY want to read right now.

Historical YA with no magic, especially if its gothic/southern gothic.

Romantic Comedies, but with a new twist or perspective. Example: diverse backgrounds, gender-bending, or a retelling of Shakespeare/fairtales/myths. #mswl

Hey, exciting news! My #mswl page is officially up and running (and perhaps unnecessarily detailed), so hit me with your best shot, query people :)

hit me up with your very smartest feminist retellings, your structurally fearless literary fiction, and anything youโ€™d comp to the brilliant Sarah Waters, Lesley Nneka Arimah, Curtis Sittenfeld, or Carmen Maria Machado! #MSWL

Oooh, and retellings too! Shakespearean, myths, other books, etc. #MSWL

Anyone thought of a Count of Monte Cristo retelling, but from the woman he left behind's perspective? And she's the badass getting into sword fights and proving his innocence? #MSWL

Other random elements I love: historical fiction, witches (historical and contemporary, but less on the humorous side), boarding schools, food, slow build romance, whimsy, retellings...#MSWL

#MSWL - #YA: I am STILL waiting for my contemporary re-telling of COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO.

#MSWL - #YA: I've become so much pickier in terms of genre fiction because I want to see something new. Give me a new twist on court intrigue or "chosen" ones. More contemporary fantasies/magical realism. Retellings of new/different stories.

Replying to @annmrose

Retellings - Give me your obscure or different retellings where the princess saves the prince (or the other princess ๐Ÿ˜‰) where it's clear it's a retelling but at the same time completely unique (like Cinder) #MSWL

#MSWL Retellings. But not like the ones we see all the time. And make it interesting. Make a commentary.

Samantha Wekstein @SWekstein · Sep 24

#MSWL Still on the lookout for inventive fairytale or folklore retellings--especially stories that haven't been done often.

Forever and always, more retellings of lesser known mythology, fairy tales, and classical lit. Especially if it blends with an unexpected genre. #MSWL
