I recently reread ALMA AND HOW SHE GOT HER NAME and it’s truly one of my all time favorites. I’d love to see more projects in my inbox exploring the things—names, food, places—that connect us with the generations before us. PB (author-illustrator only), MG/YA novel, GN. #mswl
#promoted to Assistant Editor @VikingBooks and open to submissions—send me your lyrical novels that dip into fantasy and magical realism and myth; your haunting, REBECCA-esque sublime suspense; & any ANY memoir/narrative related to FOOD. More #mswl tk.
I'm THE RIGHT agent for stories about friendship, 1st love, sex-positive teen relationships, anything art related (but especially a heist!), fighting climate change, navigating social injustice, food nerds, theatre nerds, Star Trek nerds, math nerds, nerds in general. #mswl
Starting in January I will be accepting nonfiction queries in addition to YA. Send me your memoirs, pop culture, food, lifestyle, true crime, narrative, or any combo of the above! #MSWL #Nonfiction #WritingCommunity
Samin Nosrat @CiaoSaminThough I’ve made an effort to change that over the last several years, I can’t buy what isn’t being published. I hope after reading this column, you’ll join me in asking publishers for more cookbooks from more diverse places, written by the people from those places.
On the same wavelength--give me a narrative that ties food with memoir. Or! A novel! That ties food! With story! More like Mistress of Spices, The Particular Sadness... Pardon the pun, but I'm ravenous #MSWL
#MSWL for my NF writing friends. I am always, always open to stories about food and drink, especially those with a bit of a quirk to them like this!

A lot of ppl don’t know this about me but I’m a huge #foodie. My dad made doughnuts when my brother and I were growing up, my uncle had an ice cream shop, and my aunt runs an amazing Chinese restaurant on Long Island. Send me all your foodie stories! #mswl #amagenting
Hi all! I've been on the @pagestreetkids team for a while, most recently on the marketing/PR side, but I'm excited to announce I'm now a children's editor full time! Check out my brand new #MSWL here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/kayl…
Atmospheric novels are my jam. Transport me to your country, city, town, village. I want to see and smell the food, hear the sounds of the people, of nature, of the music, feel the fabrics, immerse myself in the world within the pages.
My first taste heady taste of the richness that is Beef Bourguignon, my grandmother’s creamy mashed potatoes cooked in a cauldron-like pot... my best memories come from food I ate with family and friends... which is why I’m absolutely desperate for food writing like this! #MSWL
I’m really craving cookbooks that bring non-Eurocentric food into people’s home kitchens, or cookbooks or food narratives by BIPOC chefs that shine a light on food as the heart of a community or culture. #MSWL
Megan Barnard @meganebarnardJust read this lovely (and surprisingly touching!) article about marmalade... I adore this type of visceral, emotional food writing and I’d love to see more of it in my inbox, either in memoir or cookbook form! longreads.com/2020/07/23/mar…
#MSWL all the food writing!
