Tracy CAN FIX IT Marchini
First day back in the office and I'm looking forward to some wonderful books in 2022!
I'm currently looking for:
* author-illustrated picture books
* children's illustrators
* middle grade fiction and non-fiction
#mswl here: tracymarchini.com/submit-to-tracy
I'm open for queries and updated my website with a new #MSWL, focusing on author-illo board books and chapter books; picture books and middle grade (fiction and non-fiction):
I would LOVE a middle grade non-fiction book that explores the idea of patient zero and looks at different endemics and how medical researchers traced them back to that particular disease's patient zero.
Send this proposal to me!! #mswl
Jocelyn Rish @JocelynRishIt's happening! It's happening!

Hadas Gold @Hadas_GoldAlan Turing never got a NYT obituary until now: nyti.ms/2WcwjNf
#mswl nf for mg or ya - his life, his work during ww2, an honest look at his death and the repercussions of anti-homosexuality laws, and how Turing's work still influences compsci today.
#mswl - books that emphasize the bridge between science and the arts; I went through a phase years ago where I read a lot of books on the history of math; NF pbs that are written using a super engaging hook or concept
#mswl - amazing stories about what human, animal or plant bodies can do (e.g. more like on a cellular/biology level, not biographies); NF books about scientific discoveries made by LGBTQIA+, BIPOC or neurodiverse people; a how-to book for teens about divestment and eco-activism;
#mswl - I would love to see a trade NF book exploring antarctica and climate change. (This idea is not fully formed, so bear with me...) So like, why protecting antarctica is important, who "owns" antarctica, what is actually physically present (animals, research stations, etc)..
Katie Mack @AstroKatieMy work life has been so much better since I convinced the university facilities managers to set my office’s thermostat several degrees higher than the rest of the department twitter.com/taylorlorenz/s…
Anita Silvey @anitasilveyThere may be a children's book in this story....the Post. Not the Onion. twitter.com/anneapplebaum/…
I'd be interested to see a YA nonfiction guide to money that acknowledges the gig economy, high cost of secondary education, lack of pensions, etc. How can today's teens/late millennials prepare for a much different financial reality than previous generations? #mswl
This year, I'd love to see more trade non-fiction for children and teens that goes beyond a traditional biography! Show me science, history, cultural movements, our planet, etc. in ways I haven't seen before! (bonus points if it's a graphic novel!) #NonFiction #pb #mg #ya #mswl
I've reopened to queries and represent fiction, non-fiction and illustration for children and teens! (Sorry, I don't represent works for adults, but a lot of my lovely @bookendslit colleagues do!)

Sylvia Liu @artsylliuMicrochimerism: where your mother's or children's cells live on in you & can help or hinder your health. Eg your child's fetal cells can repair your heart, prevent breast cancer & Alzheimer's; your mom's cells can prevent preeclampsia. #science #sciencefact twitter.com/newscientist/s…
This is *wild* to think about... (#mswl nonfiction for middle grade or YA readers)
Tracy Marchini @TracyMarchinistories 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
