Seeking any mix of the following:
Sci-fi • space opera, aliens, monsters, romance
Fantasy • high/epic/second-world, retellings, mythical creatures, *limited* magical systems, time travel, academia, romance
I'd also love to see #ownvoices Latin-America-inspired mythological fantasy. It could be contemporary, historical, or a fresh retelling.
Anything featuring my favourite animal gets bonus attention.
So excited to announce that I'll be opening for queries next week on Monday!
My full #MSWL can be found on my website: leahnovamoss.wixsite.com/my-site/manuscript-wishlist
I can't wait to read your queries soon! I'll have a #MSWL thread up soon as well.

#YA #MSWL :
- all genres & YA/Adult crossover
- fast paced, high stakes, drama
- snarky, voicey, morally grey protagonists & villains
- trope-filled romances!
- competitions, tests, quests
- retellings & fresh takes on classics
- YA fantasy is my favorite!
Something I didn’t know I wanted on my #mswl
• fairy tale or classic retellings/reimaginings
• modern stories about characters from fairy tales/classics and themes from said stories
FOLKTALE or FAIRYTALE retellings, particularly from a little explored tale or from an underexplored culture or canon, would immediately grab my attention. By no means does a retelling need to stick strictly to the original source - a liberal dose of imagination is welcome. #mswl
Bethany Fulk Hendrix @bethanyfulkHi #amquerying writers! I will be opening to submissions again on June 1st! I cannot wait to see all of your amazing stories in my inbox 🎉Here's what I'll be looking for:
I’m particularly in the mood for astrology-inspired fantasy, courtly intrigue, a witchy romance, myth & fairytale retellings, sapphic romantasy, undercover assassins, life or death trials and anything dark academia...
In fantasy: Anything with a fairy tale at the root of the story is fair game but also any retelling of a classic story is my jam. From Shakespeare to Spielberg, I love stories that take familiar characters and upends their world and everything we thought we knew about them. #mswl
↬ Literary Fiction retellings ft. classic authors: Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Stoker, du Maurier, Austen, etc.
↬ Historical Fiction
↬ True Crime: well-researched + in the same vein as In Cold Blood
