Just found out that Winnie the Pooh enters public domain in 2022 and I am here to call dibs on ALL the Pooh retellings!!! #MSWL
Oh what I would give for some YA and crossover historical dramas. I’m talking period pieces, assassin stories, retellings set in their original time periods, royal courts and political intrigue 👑
Please give me books where I can fan cast this man
You: "This book is a genderbent/queer retelling of—"
I keep thinking about this article on TikTok and mental health. There's got to be YA novel in this, or maybe a retelling of The Crucible. #MSWL
I would love to see a gothic fairytale retelling of Rappaccini's Daughter in my inbox. #MSWL
Looking for ALL the graphic novel ghost stories! More more boo than blood and more spooky than scary for MG, but I'm all in for YA and Adult. Have a headless horseman retelling? Yes, please.
My manuscript wish list profile is now live! Head on over to see if I would be a good match for your story! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/nina… #MSWL
a quick FYI for my #mswl:
i love retellings (fairytale, mythology, etc.) and am always happy to see them in my box!
HOWEVER, i *do not* like super obvious retellings. they HAVE to be subtle for me to like them - think ACOTAR and ACOMAF, CINDER, or FOR THE WOLF
Rebecca Rodd @rebroddreadsBut right now I would especially love to see:
- anything set on an HBCU campus
- all of the magical realism
- mythological retellings
- romance/love stories (deep and profound and HARD or light and feel good)
- all the millennial joy and adulting hardships
Y'all I got to talk with @rebroddreads today and she is amazing. Definitely send her your stuff (so then she can sell it to me and we can all work together).
And I want everything in this list #MSWL
#MSWL In YA: Ever on the hunt for my light-hearted Jewish rom-com. Particularly interested in the trend toward more traditional mysteries (see TRULY DEVIOUS, GOOD GIRLS, ACE OF SPADES) with a strong investigative drive. Always have room for smart, high-concept contemp retellings.
Check out my #MSWL!
Gender-flipped contemporary Cinderella retelling, except I want “Cin” to be damaged, the bad boy, who needs rescuing in true enemies-to-lovers fashion by his “princess.” Make him sympathetic & redeemable at first. Make us only really like him as the plot develops. #MSWL

Is there a MG/YA retelling of My Fair Lady out there? #mswl
“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/
Chandra Rooney @sakuralovestea@leonicka I'm so hopeful that your inbox gets flooded with sweet, witchy cottagecore romance and then I get to read them all when they get published.
But also hear me out: “sweet witchy cottagecore” retelling of Hansel & Gretel about found family and who society casts off. #mswl
all this Satan talk has reminded me that I'd LOVE a re-telling of Paradise Lost #MSWL
🤩 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
