Retelling

“Did you elevate the Jane Austen retelling? Plots with new twists, takes, and contemporary relevance are the stories I want to see.” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Agent friends, I've been hungry for a smart, incisive, fresh retelling--think A STUDY IN CHARLOTTE. If you've got something like that in YA or MG, send it my way! #MSWL

This post reminds me that I need one of you YA authors to write a creepy gothic retelling of the story of green ribbon girl. Maybe a graphic novel?!? #mswl

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!

For the love of all, please someone doing a retelling of this book. #MSWL

I'm opening back up in June and I'm here for Cyrano retelling, all the lesbians, and all the found family. Adult, YA, MG, just make it heartbreaking and beautiful. #mswl #comingbackinjune

Is there an Emma retelling where Emma ends up with Harriet or do I need to #mswl that

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

Retellings 2/2

Clever takes on familiar plots/tropes or fresh retellings that completely subvert expectations.

#mswl I'd love to see a Romeo/Juliet retelling outside the US/Europe. Rival tech/business mogul families? Something Filipino with rich worldbuilding? Count me in.

It's almost Purim! Who's going to send me a YA retelling of the Book of Esther (and my girl Vashti)? Perhaps a little f/f/ queer? Definitely feminist though and #ownvoices Jewish. #MSWL
