🤩 This week, #MeetAPL starts with the newest addition to the APL team, @foldandgathers!
Selena is the star behind the scenes at @pandelectures. For her #MSWL, she is looking for dark, strange retellings that break genres. 👀 Selena will be open to queries in May!
Ashley Herring Blake @ashleyhblakeCan I get a sapphic YA rom that is essentially an ANNE OF GREEN GABLES retelling but with Anne and Diana admitting they’re totally gone for each other please and thank you. 👩🏼🦰👩🏻🌈💜 #MSWL
for REAL #mswl
Mainlined all of Lupin last night & this afternoon, and it is SO EXTREMELY MY SHIT! A kind-of retelling where the source material exists in-universe and the characters are consciously riffing on it? Meta af, sign me up. Also an eternal #mswl
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
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.
