#MSWL for nonfiction projects about books and authors as well! Caroline Fraser's PRAIRIE FIRES, Anne Boyd Rioux's MEG, JO, BETH, AMY, John Matteson's EDEN'S OUTCASTS, and Deborah Lutz's THE BRONTE CABINET are all great examples of the types of projects I'd love to see.
Putting it out into the twitter universe that I am looking for more clients creating beautifully illustrated books! Graphic novels, graphic memoirs, graphic nonfiction—anything and everything you're working on, for any age group. #MSWL

Rebecca Raskin @RJ_RaskinSome days, the only thing that keeps me going is that one day an agent will send me Soul of an Octopus but for sharks.
Just a reminder that I want ALL of the non-fiction about sharks #MSWL
I'm not usually interested in WWII stories, but this story, either nf or fictionalized, is definitely on my #MSWL: Freddie Oversteegen, Dutch resistance fighter who killed Nazis through seduction, dies at 92 wapo.st/2QBg2jf?tid=ss… Also, may Freddie enjoy heaven
Nonfiction kid lit writers! We’ve seen a ton of PB biographies acquired over the last year or so—the market is ready and open to fresh takes on PB nonfiction. Think outside the biography box! And after you do—send me your stuff :) #MSWL
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.)
Dipping out of sabbatical for #mswl!
First, I’d love to see more nonfiction. Especially interested in ecology/conservation & American history through the lens of marginalized people.
I’m also on the lookout for big-hearted, voice-driven middle grade—with plenty of humor, obv.
It's #MSWL day! Send me your voice & character driven stories about the immigrant experience, nonfiction projects with a super cool hook, super duper deadpan or dark humor, international mythology, mental health. Books that make the world a lil nicer. #MG #YA #PB
As it’s #MSWL day, I’d like to find several things in my inbox: hypnotic family saga(multigenerational ); psychological suspense with wit and insight; love story with big emotional twists. And any truly platform driven non-fiction. Send it!!
