Hyper-specific I LOVE: Ensemble Casts; Found family; QPR (queerplatonic relationships); Time travel/multiverse jumping; witch covens as femme solidarity; Non-traditional sports (roller derby, parkour, pro wresting); Tabletop RPGs (and it doesn’t just have to be D&D!)

Witches, vampires, fae - I’m a fan of them all. I’m equally interested in reinterpretations of magical creatures that play with convention or that are inspired by mythologies from around the world.

Send me your contemporary witches WITHOUT actual fantasy magical powers or who think they don’t have them. Think, The Craft before Sarah arrived. #MSWL

Happy #MSWL Day! I’d love to see…

Generally fic that gets a little weird and makes me feel things (see Lisa Taddeo’s ANIMAL, Jessamine Chan’s THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD MOTHERS)

A YA crossover witchy or obsessive girlhood friendship

An unusual & chaotic contemp workplace romance

SPECULATIVE—I’d love to find adult fiction with light touches of magic such as magical realism, cozy fantasy, or magic-tinged rom coms. THE INHERITANCE OF ORQUÍDEA DIVINA, THE VERY SECRET SOCIETY OF IRREGULAR WITCHES, THE EX HEX, and EMILY WILDE’S ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF FAERIES. #MSWL

I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want. I wanna, I wanna steaming hot, can't put down PNR/UF with witches that's no longer than 75,000 words. Come on, people, rescue me from queriers who send me what I clearly state I DON'T take. #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…

Ok, let’s talk #fantasy. I’m a fan of #romantasy, and am a sucker for a good love-triangle. I tend to be more urban fantasy rather than high-fantasy. Give me faeries, witches, and vampires any day of the week and I will be happy!
