Nonfiction

Nonfiction, please! Especially about horror movies, the 90s, and/or the most gossip-y royal stories to ever be dredged up. #MSWL

I would just like to remind people that I'm a HUGE CRAFTING NERD and would love to see some nonfiction crafting submissions, whether it's DIY or essays on crafting. Please. #mswl

(This is why so much advice to writers is read, read, read: you can only see what's new if you already know what's old) #MSWL #querytip #amquerying

As a reminder, for fiction & NF I like: #ownvoices; campus novels; narratives featuring chronic illness, disability, nonbinary, queer characters; gentrification from POC perspectives; complications caused by class differences; books that make me think & laugh #MSWL #amquerying

"Non-fic like Jim Collins GOOD TO GREAT, Susan Cain's QUIET & Charles Duhigg's THE POWER OF HABIT" @CurtisPSLA #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

Craving a narrative nonfiction Frida Kahlo YA in the vein of Vincent and Theo. Or about any WOC artists in general. #mswl

My #MSWL Madness post is up on the BookEnds blog! I talk about what I'm looking for in #pb, #mg, #ya and #gn fiction and nonfiction, and showcase the type of illustration that I have on my list: bookendsliterary.com/2018/03/15/tra…

My parameters on this #mswl, in case you're scanning the hashtag: it definitely would need to be nonfiction, and I am looking for an ending that's amazing on Earth as opposed to in the afterlife

Do you know what I would really love to read/rep? A Shawshank-like nonfiction story in which things seem like they're going to turn out horribly and then--twist!--everything turns out not just okay, but jump up and down amazing. #MSWL

I'd love to see some YA nonfiction come our way. An inspiring PNW memoir or a kick-ass collection of essays (think THE GEEK FEMINIST REVOLUTION-esque issues facing teens in the YA SFF community) would be the dream! #MSWL

Further to my earlier #mswl posts, the Gravy podcast is one of my very, very favorites. If you're writing a narrative nonfiction book in this vein, I'd love to see it. #amwriting #amquerying
