Nonfiction

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 6d

Anyone who knows I studied the history of decorative arts in grad school can probably figure out I'm a big material culture nerd. Are you working on a nonfiction project like Glenn Adamson's FEWER, BETTER THINGS or Lara Maiklem's upcoming MUDLARK? I'd love to see them! #mswl

I think it's fair to say that this is a mission for everyone at @bookendslit -- to acquire more LGBTQ authors and books in both fiction and nonfiction, for kids and adults #MSWL #diversebooks

Hi! I get this Q a lot, so--

@RossYoon is a nonfiction agency, but I'm expanding my list to include nonfiction + SFF.

Across both, I want to learn surprising things through compelling characters.

In advance of our #AskUpstart session 8/7, I promised a few new #MSWL notes. I’m looking for “Activist Non-Fiction” (shout-out to @_GinaGagliano!), NF that explores a current issue, engages readers deeply, and calls them to action. YA, MG & Graphic Novels like this – all welcome!

I've been very particular about the nonfiction queries in my inbox. One thing I've noticed in particular is that I really want more female voices in my personal empowerment, self-improvement & business titles. #MSWL

#mswl call for NF that explores science / nature / the outdoors in the ways of Paul Bogard's THE END OF NIGHT, Robert Moor's ON TRAILS, Porter Fox's NORTHLAND, James Edward Mills' THE ADVENTURE GAP, and Victoria Johnson's AMERICAN EDEN.

Lovely agents! I am looking for relevant, beautiful non-fiction of all sorts (especially those projects for the Fall 2019 season). More details here: sourcebooks.com/grace-menary-w… #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

Hey Juvenile/YA nonfiction authors! I'd love to see more books highlighting *intersectional* diversity and feminism and dealing with unconscious bias and microagressions

ok for real, I want some expert narrative nonfiction about anesthesia but with a kooky voice, a la that one @Radiolab episode. I know you're out there, kooky expert.. #mswl

My query inbox is longing for MG and YA narrative non-fiction. Exploring history from a new angle? Finding fun ways to discuss STEM topics? Please send them my way! I want more non-ficton! #MSWL
