- History & historical fiction that centers marginalized perspectives!
- Charming, Agatha Christie-esque mysteries!
- Stories exploring the impact of immigration!
- Friendship stories! Whimsical romps! Fun & fast-paced adventures!
- FOOD! Forever & always food!
And of course…
This one could be because I want tacos, but give me food #MSWL. Either a magic system based on food, or a enemies to lovers about rival taco trucks. Heck it doesn't even have to be about tacos. (I just want to eat this taco image).
I want to be introduced to new worlds and want more books set outside the US. I'm from MN and always want more books set there. Food is a big thing for me. Give me rich, detailed & mouth-watering descriptions of food #MSWL

Happy #UPColorado Thursday!
A little #mswl: I'm (@AllegraMartsch) looking 4 scholars researching food co-ops + community gardening among marginalized ppls as a method of #envirojustice. Would ❤️ an interdisciplinary lens. If you know someone working in this area let me know!
Narrative nonfiction (all categories):
- Geek culture
- Food & Wine books; or tie food & wine to travel
- Science (especially if it's space-driven or about tech advancements)
- History (especially those by and about underrepresented voices in US History) (6/6) #mswl
Food books! All ages! Fiction or non! I've been working for Food & Wine mag for 6 years; I have a massive collection of weird old cookbooks; I am obsessed with culinary history & postwar cookery from an anthropological perspective, & I want to work on your food books.
Adult: Narrative nonfiction/memoir about food, Southern culture, adventure, extreme sports, journeys, science/medicine, from perspectives we have not seen before/enough of & whose narratives tackle bigger-picture subjects alongside personal narratives.
My wishlist in a nutshell: diaspora, liminal spaces, counterintuitive, memoir w/ reportage, food, social horror, mythology, light speculative, NYC stories, historical, contemporary, multigenerational. And always, always prioritizing intersectional work from marginalized writers.
-stories that play with form & storytelling
-retelling genre mashups (eg. The Girls at the Kingfisher Club, Warm Bodies, Hadestown)
-stories where food plays a major role
-all the feels (take me on an emotional rollercoaster)
