Tracy WANTS A NAP Marchini - *on Hiatus*
Amanda Jain @wensday95It's my favorite tweet of the month. Here's August's visual #mswl. Do you have a book like one of these you're ready to query? Send it! pic.twitter.com/6Celp4ZIPb
I spy OMNIVORE'S DILEMMA on @wensday95's #mswl for adults, and while I'm currently closed to queries, I want to throw out there for the future that I would LOVE to see something like that for the #mg/#ya audience when I reopen. Also something on food justice for teens.
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.
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…
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
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)
And I'm always looking for: own voices stories in pb, mg, and ya – would love to see more neurodiverse, LGBT+ and/or stories from people (particularly women) of color. Intersectional stories always welcome! #mswl
BookEnds Literary Agency @bookendslit@Super_Weenie @absolutestartup @BookEndsJessica @jamerrson Can you guys help out @NaomisLitPix @TracyMarchini @inthesestones @SoCalledYALife ??
Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessicaEarlier this year I put out into the Universe that I want to see more nonfiction at @bookendslit & the Universe responded. @AgentJessicaA & @wensday95 & I have taken on & sold some amazing & exciting new nonfiction projects. #MSWL
Just going to throw out in the universe that I am still looking for some amazing trade MG and YA non-fiction! (PB too, but I'm just not seeing as much NF for older readers in my sub box!) #mswl
TracyMarchini @TracyMarchiniBut because this is a spotlight on just how catastrophic it would be to human life and individual lives if there was just two weeks without water in a large enough (but not so large...) area, it really resonates with you. It makes you fill in the gaps.
So that's what I am looking for. A YA that tackles some of our pressing environmental issues that reads not like dystopian fiction, but like a potential future. #mswl
