Things I like to read about: hiking and the outdoors, the transforming power of travel, food & how it connects us, the art of comedy, women’s relationship to anger, building community, community organizing #mswl
*submissions alert* We are looking for brilliant, engaging non-fiction!
I am particularly interested in nature and climate writing, food, drink and travel, and deep-dives into weird and wonderful subjects.
See: katenashlit.co.uk/non-fiction/ #MSWL
Stephanie Doig @stephaniedoigShow me a foodie character--kitchen/chef setting not necessary! Someone who shows love through the food they make for others, however that may work for your story. #MSWL
I'd also love something like this. I really love food, I love cooking, and I love characters who do, too. #MSWL
Elle Keck @ElleKeckI'm not normally a "foodie" reader but I would read the crap out of an enemies to lovers romance about rival restaurant owners, one who serves CaliMex (THE BEST) and one who serves TexMex. As long as CaliMex wins, obviously #MSWL twitter.com/ElleKeck/statu…
OMG. I LOVE this idea. I edited @elisalorello's PASTA WARS a few years back and adored working on a foodie book. As a Top Chef-fanatic and homesick Texan, I fully support this idea. But the TexMex chef wins. 😉 #MSWL
Other random elements I love: historical fiction, witches (historical and contemporary, but less on the humorous side), boarding schools, food, slow build romance, whimsy, retellings...#MSWL
#MSWL Smart and sexy rom-coms (I want to laugh and fall in love!), epic family dramas, gritty and contemporary YA, true crime that reads like a suspense novel, anything food related (f and nf), pop science and history
On a whim I decided to watch this movie on Netflix called Ramen Shop and it's an amazing story about culture, family, love, and (of course) food.
Now I'd like a YA or MG story that explores the bonds of family and culture (especially a blended one) through food! #mswl
Is anyone else into the show Let's Eat because I'd really love a #ownvoices #DV, contemporary #YA book with the same kind of style about a MC who just lives for food. Also if it could include some mouth-watering descriptions I would appreciate it. Cool thanks! #mswl
Amanda Jain @wensday95It's my favorite tweet of the month. Here's August's visual #mswl. Do you have a book like one of these you're ready to query? Send it! pic.twitter.com/6Celp4ZIPb
I spy OMNIVORE'S DILEMMA on @wensday95's #mswl for adults, and while I'm currently closed to queries, I want to throw out there for the future that I would LOVE to see something like that for the #mg/#ya audience when I reopen. Also something on food justice for teens.
Sarah Phair @SarahPhairSend me all of your upmarket, book club fiction. Basically any fiction that could land on this list, this is 100% my thing #mswl: nytimes.com/2019/07/10/boo…
In nonfcition I want: feminist projects, anything about food (especially interested in the future of food and agriculture), millennial driven topics, pop culture entry points w/ elevated discourse, also really want a book on housing... #mswl
RE: the book on research about food allergies: I want to find books like this, so if you're an academic or an expert, EMAIL ME TOO. 😁 Working on 3-12 or so projects that would qualify, + would love more. Research research research, #ftw. #MSWL
