Hybrid memoir, memoir, and self-help is on my #MSWL Query your coming of age, food-related, illness themed, or other heartwarming and "can't put down" manuscripts! #writingcommunity #litagent

Started watching @netflix Street Food documentary series and now I really want a picture book about chaat and other street foods around the world #MSWL

I don’t get a lot of nonfiction in my inbox, but I would love to see more. Especially for YA & MG. I like baseball, sports in general, food, cooking, baking, lgbt+ studies, and little known women of history. Please send me more NF! #mswl

Lastly, nonfiction. I'd love to get some cookbooks, especially if it's from people exploring their own cultural heritage. I'm a very food motivated person, and I love learning new recipes. #MSWL

“I’d love a nonfiction project that tackles food or cooking from a non-status quo perspective. Prose over cookbook preferred!” @kurestinarmada #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

After watching Salt Fat Acid Heat I am craving a food-related contemp fantasy! #MSWL

Authors/Illustrators/Everyone! I am now open to queries & looking to build my list. Visit the @JVNLA website for my #mswl and submission guidelines. #amagenting

Does anyone have a a manuscript with delicious food playing a starring role in it? I’d love to read some gorgeous descriptions of food! Bonus points if YA or MG sci-fi/fantasy! #mswl

Within nonfiction, I would love a food-travel-culture book that doesn't read like an anthropological study, focusing the story through a humanitarian lens. #mswl

Hello my nonfiction writing friends! I have a TON of #mswl tweets for you this morning, so buckle up.

First up, FOOD, because we've established how much I want to both eat it and read about it. I love food books that explore forgotten histories, take deep dives into one particular aspect, or that look at how food cultures intermingle and change one another. #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Mar 6

Evergreen #mswl: books about food! Cookbooks, food histories, food + race, food + gender, food + basically anything. FOOD.

Within the immigrant experience, there's so much I'd like to see reflected in all subgenres. (1/2) #MSWL

The desire to both assimilate & hold tightly to your culture, the very real fear, food-is-love, the closeness of family. Of course, there isn't only one way this plays out, & I want to read them all! #MG #YA #MSWL (2/2)

1/4 #MSWL Board books: early learning concepts (dates & time, body, senses, cooking/food, money); series proposals; economic and gripping language; LGBTQ+; diverse families and ownvoices; author-illustrators.

Replying to @bookendslit

My 2019 goal is more nonfiction. Bring me your food histories, social histories, material culture proposals, true crime projects, gimme all of 'em. Basically, if it's nonfiction, I wanna see it. #mswl

OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Adult fantasy with less-often-seen characters in starting role.  Give me King's chef, the keymaker, the breadmaker on an explosive, life-altering path. Show me the alien barber, the magical tailor, the captain of a space food truck.

Sarah Phair @SarahPhair · 14 Nov 2018

Dear Twitter, I want to expand the nonfiction side of my list. Please send me your feminist narrative nonfiction, pop culture proposals, and anything food related. #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 13 Nov 2018

Nonfiction: books about food (always!), travel, history, art, and culture. I love to see projects that show the intersections of these topics. For instance, I'd love to see one on food deserts in America and how they disproportionately affect minority communities. #mswl

Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz · 29 Oct 2018

I've tweeted this before, but wanted to post it again: I'm hungry (pun absolutely intended) for a graphic novel about food/cooking/baking, with recipes included. :) #MSWL

Brit Perilli ➡️ BEA/BookCon @Britny_Perilli · 13 Sep 2018

Little late to #MSWL today, but I'd love for some agents to send some illustrated, quirky, pop culture adult nonfiction or some lighthearted, contemporary MG & YA with some strong nerd culture flavor! (I've been itching for some cosplay/comic con/food competition stories.)

Danielle Chiotti @daniellechiotti · 12 Sep 2018

Now for some nonfiction #mswl: cookbooks, food narrative/memoir, parenting, social issues, micro histories that bring an underrated event/person/movement to light.
