Food

Little late to #MSWL today, but I'd love for some agents to send some illustrated, quirky, pop culture adult nonfiction or some lighthearted, contemporary MG & YA with some strong nerd culture flavor! (I've been itching for some cosplay/comic con/food competition stories.)

Now for some nonfiction #mswl: cookbooks, food narrative/memoir, parenting, social issues, micro histories that bring an underrated event/person/movement to light.

I'm also always interested in deep dives into particular subjects. Think quirky like Mary Roach or food-related like Mark Kurlansky. #mswl

In narrative nonfiction: Books about food, material culture, art, literature, and history always top the list, and I'm particularly interested in projects that explore how many of these topics intersect with race, gender, and politics. #mswl

A vegan cookbook, so I can taste test all the food. #MSWL

#MSWL: Cribbed from a list I read on a recent #SCBWI panel, I often like books with these elements:
food
magic
ghosts
murder
tragedy
sisters
twins
islands
romance/kissing
difficult family dynamics
people who feel like outsiders in any way
the forest

I'd love to see a contemporary MG or YA cooking competition like Iron Chef or even something with a little more quirk like Food Wars. #mswl

#amquerying writers, I only have 3 queries left! Send more! I'm currently looking for adult mystery, romance (esp historical & diverse historical), women's fiction, and upmarket projects, as well as nonfiction on the topics of food, material culture, & social history. #mswl

Your semi-regular reminder that I am always interested in stories about food, be they fiction or nonfiction. #MSWL

It seems after losing my Dad 6 yrs ago this August, I've found so much happiness in baking. I'm all about a book that celebrates making food, sharing it, and using it as a bridge to keeping connected with friends and family #MSWL

When I couldn’t sleep last night, I spent 45 minutes thinking about this and reading comments. So who wants to send me their NF take on intersection of food, class, and culture? #MSWL

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Apr 16

A quick reminder that I am always open to projects like these! If you have a book about food, fiction or nonfiction, I want to see it. #mswl

“I’d love a nonfiction project that tackles food or cooking from a non-status quo perspective. Prose over cookbook preferred!” @kurestinarmada #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Plot points I'd love to see #MSWL -- trapped in the wilderness, mom/school/PTO type stories, set in Alaska, magical food & always #ownvoices #diversebooks

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Feb 16

In narrative nonfiction, I'd love to see more food-centered books, especially those exploring forgotten aspects of our food history or that look at the intersections of race, feminism, and food. Think THE COOKING GENE or WHAT SHE ATE.

Who's up for some Friday afternoon #mswl tweets? Here are some specific things I'll be looking for at BookEnds!

As a general reminder, I rep adult romance, mystery, women's, and upmarket fiction, and have a deep and abiding love for historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction, especially on topics like the literary world, food, material culture, & social history.
