Food

Tia Rose Mele @TiatheTiger · 16h

I don’t get a lot of nonfiction in my inbox, but I would love to see more. Especially for YA & MG. I like baseball, sports in general, food, cooking, baking, lgbt+ studies, and little known women of history. Please send me more NF! #mswl

Lastly, nonfiction. I'd love to get some cookbooks, especially if it's from people exploring their own cultural heritage. I'm a very food motivated person, and I love learning new recipes. #MSWL

“I’d love a nonfiction project that tackles food or cooking from a non-status quo perspective. Prose over cookbook preferred!” @kurestinarmada #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

After watching Salt Fat Acid Heat I am craving a food-related contemp fantasy! #MSWL

Authors/Illustrators/Everyone! I am now open to queries & looking to build my list. Visit the @JVNLA website for my #mswl and submission guidelines. #amagenting

Does anyone have a a manuscript with delicious food playing a starring role in it? I’d love to read some gorgeous descriptions of food! Bonus points if YA or MG sci-fi/fantasy! #mswl

Within nonfiction, I would love a food-travel-culture book that doesn't read like an anthropological study, focusing the story through a humanitarian lens. #mswl

Hello my nonfiction writing friends! I have a TON of #mswl tweets for you this morning, so buckle up.

First up, FOOD, because we've established how much I want to both eat it and read about it. I love food books that explore forgotten histories, take deep dives into one particular aspect, or that look at how food cultures intermingle and change one another. #mswl

Evergreen #mswl: books about food! Cookbooks, food histories, food + race, food + gender, food + basically anything. FOOD.

Within 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.

Replying to @bookendslit

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.

Sarah Phair @SarahPhair · 14 Nov 2018

Dear Twitter, I want to expand the nonfiction side of my list. Please send me your feminist narrative nonfiction, pop culture proposals, and anything food related. #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 13 Nov 2018

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

Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz · 29 Oct 2018

I've tweeted this before, but wanted to post it again: I'm hungry (pun absolutely intended) for a graphic novel about food/cooking/baking, with recipes included. :) #MSWL

Brit Brooks @Britny_Brooks · 13 Sep 2018

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.)

Danielle Chiotti @daniellechiotti · 12 Sep 2018

Now for some nonfiction #mswl: cookbooks, food narrative/memoir, parenting, social issues, micro histories that bring an underrated event/person/movement to light.

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 12 Sep 2018

I'm also always interested in deep dives into particular subjects. Think quirky like Mary Roach or food-related like Mark Kurlansky. #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 12 Sep 2018

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
