Jennifer Azantian ❄️☃️❄️ @jenazantianWithin the immigrant experience, there's so much I'd like to see reflected in all subgenres. (1/2) #MSWL
The desire to both assimilate & hold tightly to your culture, the very real fear, food-is-love, the closeness of family. Of course, there isn't only one way this plays out, & I want to read them all! #MG #YA #MSWL (2/2)
1/4 #MSWL Board books: early learning concepts (dates & time, body, senses, cooking/food, money); series proposals; economic and gripping language; LGBTQ+; diverse families and ownvoices; author-illustrators.
My 2019 goal is more nonfiction. Bring me your food histories, social histories, material culture proposals, true crime projects, gimme all of 'em. Basically, if it's nonfiction, I wanna see it. #mswl
OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Adult fantasy with less-often-seen characters in starting role. Give me King's chef, the keymaker, the breadmaker on an explosive, life-altering path. Show me the alien barber, the magical tailor, the captain of a space food truck.
Nonfiction: books about food (always!), travel, history, art, and culture. I love to see projects that show the intersections of these topics. For instance, I'd love to see one on food deserts in America and how they disproportionately affect minority communities. #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.)
In narrative nonfiction: Books about food, material culture, art, literature, and history always top the list, and I'm particularly interested in projects that explore how many of these topics intersect with race, gender, and politics. #mswl
Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPixBut when agent screws up, authors sometimes have trust issues.I get it, totally. Please don't hesitate to query me & talk opwnly if you were recently impacted by 1 of these events where an agent didn't do their job according to industry standards.I would love to see your work. 2/
#MSWL Adult and YA fantasy, sci fi, romance. Picture books featuring diversity, food, or fun word play. Middle grade based on unique mythologies, and always, diversity across all spectrums including LGBTQ, authors/characters of color, and neurodiversity. Queryme.online/naomidavis
#amquerying writers, I only have 3 queries left! Send more! I'm currently looking for adult mystery, romance (esp historical & diverse historical), women's fiction, and upmarket projects, as well as nonfiction on the topics of food, material culture, & social history. #mswl
It seems after losing my Dad 6 yrs ago this August, I've found so much happiness in baking. I'm all about a book that celebrates making food, sharing it, and using it as a bridge to keeping connected with friends and family #MSWL
Wanted: Potential cookbook author who can write quickly about an easy and fun, sweet and savory topic. Bonus points if they take their own quality photos. Food bloggers welcome. :) DM me for more info! #MSWL #cookbooks #amwriting

When I couldn’t sleep last night, I spent 45 minutes thinking about this and reading comments. So who wants to send me their NF take on intersection of food, class, and culture? #MSWL
