And while I'm sure I'll add to this list, if you've got anything geeky, fun, and full of twists on the fiction side, or prescriptive on the nonfiction side, I definitely want to see it! :) #MSWL
NF: Craft/Hobby & Lifestyle. Projects that can teach readers how to affordably alter their lifestyle for the better. I'm particularly interested in homesteading, foraging, and other sustainability projects. #MSWL
NF: Fresh and modern takes on relationship/dating projects. The key for me here is to approach the work with a lens that does not treat the cis-het relationship as the default/baseline/or norm. #MSWL
Stephanie Winter @readbystephanieIt's been a while since I've shared a longer #MSWL thread, so as we move into a🎃new season🍂these are some of the topics and projects I'd love to find for my list.
NF: Renter-friendly design or design projects for improving your day-to-day well-being and mental health on a budget.
Stephanie Winter @readbystephanieI know #DayOfTheGirl was yesterday, but I can't resist sharing one of my favorite empowering YA reads geared toward girls.
Who else has book recs? (Bonus if they're nonfiction!) pic.twitter.com/599wS7KG4e
Also going to add that this brand of YA nonfiction is an absolute #mswl for me. The business angle, the creativity, the list vibes, etc.
Rounding off my #MSWL tweets today, in NF I’m looking for the following topical themes:
-cultural criticism (e.g. gender, race, sexuality)
-YA books about the +/- effects of the beauty industry
-parenting, reproductive health, physical wellness
#MSWL I would love to read more YA non-fiction graphic novels that:
-showcase proactive groups of people (think GIRLS WHO RUN THE WORLD)
-deal with serious topics (reproductive rights, loss, mental illness, etc.) in a positive way (can be fiction too)
-are inspiring memoirs
Brit Brooks-Perilli @Britny_PerilliIllustrated/graphic novel style non-fiction is something that I really want to see more of in my inbox!
Cookbooks and food are great, but I would love to see author/illustrator teams work on other topics as well like film, books, nature, science, pop culture, etc. #MSWL pic.twitter.com/tFCywHcKIF
This #MSWL is a big ask for me as well! You don't see enough of these.
#BellLetsTalk is a great way to generate awareness. My #MSWL includes diverse representation of mental health issues both in fiction and non-fiction. Send me those queries. Let's end the stigma in as many ways as possible! 🙂
In non-fiction, I want to see more:
> Allergy sensitive cook books
> Analytical essays on pop culture (think Anne Helen Peterson)
> HOW-TOs for digital work for home nomads
> Well-being women’s health and reproduction topics
> Societal analysis with bold hooks
