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

In historical fiction, I’d prefer stories not set in Western Europe or the USA. Hidden histories and female-led retellings are also up my alley.

Across categories/genres: #LGBTQ stories of all flavors, any retelling “but make it gay” is pretty much would be something I want to read always. #mswl

Upmarket speculative fiction. Grounded fantasy, magical realism, retellings of fairy/folk tales, horror. The majority of my favourite books of all time live in this genre. #MSWL

From the coalface of publishing: all editors are saying no more witches please or retellings of myths.

I'll always want witches & myth retellings! Just give me a strong voice, layered characterization, & beautiful textured writing with them. Would especially love to see witches from underrepresented backgrounds - like, can I get a witch living in a hanok in the woods? #mswl twitter.com/KarolinaSutton…
