Big Edition @BigEditionWould you recognize Julius Caesar or Cleopatra in modern clothes?
I'm mesmerized by this. And it feels like there is a good book concept/retelling hidden in one of these renderings. Authors, go! #MSWL
Deborah Nemeth @DebNemethCarina Press is holding a pitch event on Nov. 30 for our Adores line of LGBTQ+ contemporaries. For this line, we don't require the full manuscript to submit, nor do we require you to have an agent. And we're providing feedback on requested submissions! twitter.com/Write4Harlequi…
For Carina Adores, some of the tropes that will grab my eye include attraction of opposites, cross class, fake relationship, marriage of convenience, enemies to lovers, secret agenda, second chance, road trip, forced proximity, fairy tale retelling. Low angst stories only. #MSWL
Lauren Knowles @knowles_editor😭😭 I love this. My Christmas and birthday wish is to receive an f/f Labyrinth retelling. Thank you. #MSWL twitter.com/tashadrinkstea…
I would LOVE this, too! #mswl
Tasha Suri @tashadrinksteaI.... uh, omg. You've all seen this sapphic Labyrinth themed wedding shoot, right? I'm just extremely late to the party?
😭😭 I love this. My Christmas and birthday wish is to receive an f/f Labyrinth retelling. Thank you. #MSWL
Rachel Bass @bachelrassAggressively not thinking about This Week right now, but you know what I would love? Explicitly queer Shakespeare retellings. Sapphic Macbeth. Midsummer but queer and poly. Is this...is this my brand?? #mswl
Omg yes please!

Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbardI would LOVE more genre-blendy high concept projects, whether magical realism, SFF, time travel, etc. Also love reimaginings/retellings/flipping any fairy tale on it's head. MG and YA. #AskECLA #MSWL
So much this...#MSWL
Mandy Hubbard @MandyHubbardWhile we're doing #AskECLA, let's talk about what stuff we're dying to see in our inbox, eh? (@LindaEpstein @GarrettAlwert) I'll start by saying ROMANCE. ALL THE YA ROMANCE. Or hints of romance in MG. Dark and angsty or light and funny, BRING IT.
christina orlando @cxorlandookay, you’ve got a book deal to retell a story that ISNT king arthur, robin hood, shakespeare anything, or jane austen anything. what story are you writing?
This is my favorite prompt. If you’re writing a retelling that is queer, unexpected, just plain ol’ weird, or using an obscure fairytale from literally any culture but especially non-western, I totally want it in my inbox. #MSWL
Katherine Harrison @KidlitKatThis 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 twitter.com/svershbow/stat…
Echoing this #MSWL (which you probably could've guessed from looking at my Twitter header). A YA retelling of "The Green Ribbon"? Please send it my way!
Sophie Vershbow @svershbowSo jealous the girl with the green ribbon could take her brain off. pic.twitter.com/aVUkI3krKr
