#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
I'd love to see more non-fiction in my inbox. I'm not looking for memoir/narrative right now, but please send me nf relating to sports (not memoir), psych, food, fandom, and pretty much everything else! #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!
Alechia says get SAVING RUBY KING! @alechiawritesPlease tell me the most delicious, sweetest, foodtastic (I mean food on every page if possible) YA stories out there. I want to believe I wrote a really great one that you'll love and fingers crossed that'll get out in the world, but I would love to read some right now!!
I just saved a lot of these recs to my to-read list. & also, please send me your foodtastic books (MG, YA, & adult)! #MSWL
Lucy Bexley 🏳️🌈 @bexley_lucyArsenic and Old Lace Pancakes—a macabre food network pitch:
People cook meals using only the ingredients they find when cleaning out their grandparents’ houses
This is #MSWL for SURE. Lucy: write me this book, friend.
Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburnToday I learned all about Lena Richard, a New Orleanian & the first Black woman to host her own cooking show (also a chef, restaurateur, entrepreneur, & cookbook author). My dad’s family has been in New Orleans since the 1800s, & I’d never heard of Lena. 1/2
I’d LOVE to rep a project about Lena Richard. Narrative nonfiction? A cultural history of Black New Orleans food that centers Lena? A bio of Lena through a lense like The Cooking Gene? If you’d like to take this on (are already taking this on?!), query me please. 2/2 #MSWL #BVM
Sarah Grill @SarahGrill1Just thinking how much I’d love to get a Jewish YA that is NOT centered on the Holocaust. Give me a Birthright thriller!! A Camp Chi summer romance! A Hillel set-up gone wrong!! And the more food descriptions, the better. Please & thank you #mswl #amediting
