I recently reread ALMA AND HOW SHE GOT HER NAME and it’s truly one of my all time favorites. I’d love to see more projects in my inbox exploring the things—names, food, places—that connect us with the generations before us. PB (author-illustrator only), MG/YA novel, GN. #mswl

I would LOVE an #ownvoices story featuring a Black Jewish main character. If there's a lot of food involved, even better. And loud relatives. And opinions. #MSWL

I'm THE RIGHT agent for stories about friendship, 1st love, sex-positive teen relationships, anything art related (but especially a heist!), fighting climate change, navigating social injustice, food nerds, theatre nerds, Star Trek nerds, math nerds, nerds in general. #mswl

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

Just tossing this out for a Monday: I would love to see more lifestyle and food/diet books. I am a big cook, and would love to find more books in this area. #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
