Contemporary WITCHES and covens. #YA and #MG, but keep it grounded in this world—think: The Craft or Practical Magic. I'm also on board with other #magicalrealism in styles of Laura Ruby, Anna-Marie McLemore, Emily X.R. Pan, Katrina Leno, Ibi Zoboi's American Street #MSWL
New add to my #MSWL. I'm looking for rom-coms with magical elements or paranormal: witches or nerdy werewolves/shifters come to mind... IOW, something different from what we've seen in paranormal romance in the past + funny & lighthearted. #WritingCommunity #amquerying #amwriting
Sarah Guan @🏡 @Sarah_Guan#mswl: this entire vibe please
(disclaimer: i love owls! they’re great! but i also love murderous witches who know what they want and protect their own) twitter.com/blgtylr/status…
Oh jeez I also really want this book, this is a perfect witch vibe #mswl
Brandon @blgtylrSo last night, I was having a perfectly fine realist dream. Until I wandered off the property I was staying into the woods where I encountered a witch's cottage. She was a very nice witch. We were talking over the fence of her garden.

contemporary fantasy!! i want it!! ESPECIALLY (really only) if it draws from diverse folklore and/or reimagines evergreen fantasy elements (witches, vampires, chosen ones, etc) with BIPOC at the center of the story 👸🏽🧙🏽♀️🧜🏿♀️
For fantasy, I'm always ready for some fresh witches or vampires, particularly from marginalized creators. I'm not the best fit for high fantasy or sci fi, but if you've got something you'd comp to GIDEON (the writing, the snark, the queer), I'd love to take a look. #MSWL
Now to specifics! I love ALL THE ROMANCE, w/ queer & BIPOC stories prioritized. Give me all your fave tropes starring queer, BIPOC, & QBIPOC characters, including rom coms, historical (more regency f/f PLEASE), contemporary romance, & paranormal w/ witches and/or vampires. #MSWL
Witches and haunted, creepy woods
Priyanka Krishnan @mspriyankaI don't know whether it's the season, or just 2020 in general, but I am craving a warm and wise and magical witchy story right now, brimming with sisterhood and secrets (historical or contemporary). Bonus points if it has a compelling romance! #MSWL

Amanda Jain @wensday95Time for my annual fall #mswl! Send me all your murdery, gothic, horror, witchy books with bonfires and cozy sweaters and apple cider. pic.twitter.com/RPMlepQVX7
They are a delight, please keep them coming! #mswl
Since I'm opening back up for queries tomorrow, I thought I'd share some--not all--of my #MSWL must-haves.
1st up, I want a pair of witchy sisters or witchy friends with ancestral magic wrestling angry restless spirits in a dark setting, like a swampy, marshy woodland.
Still here for witches. Please & thanks.
Especially modern witches. Crystals. Herbs hanging from kitchen ceiling and running a clinic in town with remedies that don't poison you with chemicals.
Maybe solving a murder or two along the way 😉
