Nonfiction

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I'm a sucker for history narrative nonfiction that juxtaposes two people from the same time, like THE DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY or THE PROFESSOR AND THE MADMAN. If your title is THE _____ AND THE _____, I will probably like it. #MSWL

#MSWL I'm on the hunt for wildly entertaining literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, and memoir, esp from underrepresented perspectives. Dying to see non-Eurocentric HF, refreshing romcoms a la #CrazyRichAsians, propulsive toxic female friendship stories--omg the list goes on--

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I'd love to get more narrative nonfiction with a strong platform. Maybe something pop science-y, psychology-y, true crime, flashy history, memoir. #MSWL

Jill Marr @jilliganjonze · 12 Sep 2018

Just realized it's #MSWL today! I'd LOVE to see some compelling Adult Narrative NF about a little-known part of history, a story that may be part of a bigger, more well-known story--but not-yet explored.

Otherwise, in nonfiction: culture essays, sports (as long as it comes with a broader non-sport ramification), history, science, all those upmarket NF categories. #MSWL

Caitlin McDonald @literallycait · 12 Sep 2018

I'm also looking for more nonfiction--particularly smart, accessible books about feminism, science, history, or travel; and prescriptive or art/gift books with a geeky subject. Author platform preferred! #mswl

1. #MSWL -- I want more of what I'm not known for. Past week, I've signed up two non-fiction projects, one on sports & one a guide for survivors of child sexual abuse. I follow sports, entertainment, business -- I and @awfulagent want more.

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 12 Sep 2018

Nonfiction that merges pop culture, history, & feminism — like my client @sammaggs’ books: THE FANGIRL’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY, WONDER WOMEN, & GIRL SQUADS. #MSWL

Amanda Shih @amandashih · 12 Sep 2018

Happy #MSWL day! My number one ask is for YA or MG narrative NF/memoir that grapples with identity in a nuanced way

stories of women in space in PB, MG or YA #mswl

Just a quick note that I'm looking for NF stories here, or stories that deal with astronomy... but not looking for space operas or fantasy at this time! #mswl

Lynn Johnston @lynnjohnstonlit · 12 Sep 2018

Speaking of nonfiction for young people, query me with:
--Deeply reported narrative of historical events
--Bios of underappreciated historical women or POC
--Self help from columnist of mainstream publication or popular blog

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 12 Sep 2018

I really, really want illustrated nonfiction. Ex: WHAT WE SEE IN THE STARS, LITERARY WITCHES. Or maybe something prescriptive and workbook-ish like THE CURATED CLOSET. #MSWL

Rosie, but spookier 🕷⚰️🦇 @RosalieCJonker · 12 Sep 2018

nonfiction that teaches me something cool or odd, like Jim Paul's CATAPULT; fun, informative gift-y books like Jessa Crispin's THE CREATIVE TAROT #MSWL

Brent Taylor @btaylorbooks · 12 Sep 2018

I'd love to see more non-fiction in all young reader categories: picture books, MG, YA, heavily illustrated and graphic projects. #MSWL

Kat Enright @katenright · 12 Sep 2018

In nonfiction, I’m looking for cookbooks and gift books. I’m particularly interested cookbooks of traditional recipes with a modern flair. In gift books I’d love to see something fun and geeky, or that explore unique and odd topics. #MSWL

Hannah Bennett @helizbennett · 12 Sep 2018

#MSWL: Nonfiction books about empowerment of marginalized voices, women's issues, women's health and body positivity, self-help
