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

Brit Brooks-Perilli @Britny_PerilliIllustrated/graphic novel style non-fiction is something that I really want to see more of in my inbox!
Cookbooks and food are great, but I would love to see author/illustrator teams work on other topics as well like film, books, nature, science, pop culture, etc. #MSWL pic.twitter.com/tFCywHcKIF
This #MSWL is a big ask for me as well! You don't see enough of these.

I would love to see some nonfiction in my inbox right now. If you have a pop culture, baseball/sports, psych, food, fandom, music, or craft related NF, or any other NF you think I might like, send me a query!
I’m not actively looking for memoir or biography right now. #mswl
Always always on the hunt for diverse, creative contemporary YA that can capture the humor, heart, and playfulness of anime. 💖
Bonus if the story involves friends sharing their passions (geeky or not) or has some delicious food. #mswl
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeIn the @bookendslit #MSWL doggie pile! I want more graphic novels! I just read LILY THE THIEF and it was so good and I need more. twitter.com/jmcgowanbks/st…
I'm next in line on the @bookendslit #MSWL train chuggin' along 🚂 I'd love to find a novel in the vein of NATALIE TAN'S BOOK OF LUCK AND FORTUNE where food, community, and culture intertwine. Also, I'm a fan of AYESHA AT LAST, so a fresh retelling like this might catch my eye!
Passions and personal interests hugely inform any agent's list. Mine include: Minnesota, Hockey, Cooking/Food, Wine/Cocktails, motherhood, business ownership, dogs, diversity, equality, women, books/reading. #MSWL
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.
