In YA and Adult:

- Fantasy rooted in folklore and culture, featuring diverse characters, myths, and monsters
- Horror as a vehicle for exploring identity, otherness, and trauma
- Fresh genre crossovers/subgenres like cozy sci-fi, horror romance, literary historical fantasy, etc.

I would love to see this in any of the above age categories, especially if it is fantasy, sci fi or horror. I love manga art styles too! I'd also be open to retellings here esp set in modern day! 10/?

Adult/YA Science Fiction:

For me, the more science the better! I love extrapolations on current science/tech. I love stories set in space or that involve space travel or are set after some sort of catastrophe/apocalypse. 6/?

I'd also love to see grounded SFF and speculative work - I'm always thinking of BABEL, SHOOT THE MOON, BOOK OF NIGHT, EMILY WILDE'S ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FAERIES, THE MINISTRY OF TIME. (3/

Adult:
- genre bending & blending across the board!
- fantasy and horror in the same vein as YA: gripping, dark, cerebral, exciting
- near future sci-fi with alternate/parallel realities, androids, and science that feels real
- queer romance with commercial hooks!

Listen I know fantasy loves its mages, assassins, warrior princesses, and knights but please give me more scholars, shamans, mapmakers, artisans, and bards - I would love to see more creatives having adventures in SFF! #MSWL
