Specific nonfiction topics I’d love to read about this year: music journalism, depression, chronic illness, occult topics beyond tarot and astrology, environmentalism, smart pop culture criticism. #MSWL
I’m always excited to see strong nonfiction proposals in my inbox. Pop culture, environmental science, history, occult, and lifestyle. Illustrated projects. Essays written by modern journalists. #MSWL
Illustrated graphic novels and graphic nonfiction by individual author/illustrators. MG, YA, Adult. The art needs to cleverly utilize the comics storytelling format. I’m not looking at script-only submissions at the moment. #MSWL
Graphic “Novel” #MSWL
🍂 realistic teen stories
🍂 graphic memoir
🍂 graphic nonfiction
🍂 psychological horror
Note: I’m currently only looking for projects created by author/illustrators (one creator both writing and illustrating the book).
My love for music documentaries has grown during the pandemic—the creative process, how certain musicians/albums/singles react to and influence history and culture.
All this to say, if you’re writing a book proposal for music-related nonfiction, I’d like to see it! #MSWL
The query inbox at @PSLiterary opens on Monday, and I’m so excited to add new clients to my list in 2020.
Representation info and my updated #mswl is at the link below. Let me know if you have any questions.
Speaking of learning (I'm a Virgo, leave me alone), I love working on nonfiction books. It's difficult to list specific topics because I don't know what I don't know! Teach me something cool. #MSWL
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
MARIA @msmariavicenteI updated the manuscript wish list on my website recently, so I want to tweet some of the new things I'm looking for now that the query inbox is open again. (Feel free to mute for a few minutes if I'm driving you crazy.)
For nonfiction, I want to see more books on the intersection of feminism and (pop) culture as well as smart essay collections. #MSWL
