#MSWL CULTS. Novels about cults, nonfiction about cults and/or the psychology behind them.

Happy #MSWL Day! Any authors curious what Liza's wishing for? Here it is!

Zesty historical adventure/thriller
Literary women’s fiction about motherhood
Elegant, smart spy novel by someone in the intelligence community
Narrative nonfiction about a turning point in history

In adult nonfiction, I’m always looking for self-help, pop science, psychology titles. #MSWL

Hey, it's #MSWL day! I've got my page over on the MSWL site (link below) and even though my inbox and to read pile are overflowing, I can say I'd love more comedy, narrative nonfiction, and travel writing. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/dara…

Other wishes include kids nonfiction for any age. Also, picture books that are quirky/different and would make good board books #MSWL

Danielle Chiotti @daniellechiotti · 12 Sep 2018

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

I could spend ages thinking about #MSWL day so I will just be succinct: in fiction still looking mainly for smart SF/F with a fresh hook, especially by/about ppl from marginalized POVs. In nonfic: ppl w/established platforms in pop culture/media, humor, social politics, history.

In nonfiction, Amberjack is seeking books that expand our current list—gender and sexuality, body positivity, memoir that taps into broader human experience #MSWL

This #mswl is for non-fiction-- I love business history. I'd like some fun business history for a popular audience. #twitterstorians, where are you?

Natalie M. Lakosil @Natalie_Lakosil · 12 Sep 2018

HUNGRY for YA, MG & adult nonfiction. #mswl pop culture, feminist issues, true crime, pop science, parenting, business from a WOMAN'S POV, relationship/dating, things no one talks about but we SHOULD, fresh & unique & a little weird & dark (DARK TOURIST, LORE, My Favorite Murder)

Charlotte Wenger @WilbursBF_Char · 12 Sep 2018

⚡I was inspired by my recent visit to the @museumofscience! Would love to find a narrative nonfiction #PB about lightning, storms, and/or electricity! ⚡ #MSWL

I studied journalism and will always have a soft spot for it -- I'd love a fascinating and teen-centric narrative journalism story like The 57 Bus, or a celebration of the power of the press like Spotlight #MSWL

Yes please. I worked for 2 years at a large metropolitan newspaper (as both a reporter and copy editor), so I'd love something with the feel and energy of the newsroom, but in a high school or jr high newspaper (since I only do kidlit). Fic or nonfic. #MSWL

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · 12 Sep 2018

Exception: I am starting to seek MG & YA nonfiction graphic novels with specific appeal to the school and library market #MSWL

I love SFF with strong curricular connections that would appeal to teachers/librarians incorporating them into curriculum/pairing with classics

Michelle Witte @michellewitte · 12 Sep 2018

The other day I stumbled upon DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) Twitter, and I would LOVE to see manuscripts and short story collections (fiction and nonfic) from writers with DID. #MSWL (No need to wait until I reopen to queries on this one, but I only rep kidlit.)

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 12 Sep 2018

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

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 12 Sep 2018

Time for some #mswl tweets! Here are just some of the things I'm looking for right now.

In general, I rep adult mystery, romance, women's fiction, some SF/F, and upmarket projects, and love to see historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction.

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I really want fiction and nonfiction that focuses on internet culture, like SO YOU'VE BEEN PUBLICLY SHAMED or the movie "Ingrid Goes West." #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I want fiction and nonfiction on hot contemporary topics. Police brutality, immigration, white supremacists/the alt-right, etc. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I also want fresh prescriptive nonfiction with a strong platform in business, self-help, relationships, parenting, etc. Maybe a guidebook in an untapped market that has a large audience. #MSWL
