Food

Sarah Grill @SarahGrill1 · May 21

Just 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

Picture books that celebrate food and family in the vein of FRY BREAD by Kevin Noble Maillard. #MSWL

Illustrated/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

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

Rereading my eternal fave NATALIE TAN’S BOOK OF LUCK AND FORTUNE reminds me how badly I want an Adult Romance/Contemporary steeped in family, food, culture, and a little bit of magic #MSWL

In 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!

*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.

Fairbank Literary @FairbankLit · 25 Sep 2019

If you write about food and life, do it with the passion and beauty of Ruth Reichel, or Molly Wizenberg. #MSWL

Stephanie Doig @stephaniedoig · 24 Sep 2019

Show 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

Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymonds · 24 Sep 2019

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

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · 24 Sep 2019

I also work in non-fiction, handling cookbooks, memoir, pop-history, and more!

If you've got a platform and a story to tell or gorgeous food photography (or both!), I want to chat. #MSWL

Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburn · 24 Sep 2019

I thought of another: A culinary history/food memoir. Think: The Cooking Gene (a look at people and culture) or Salt (how a food shaped history). Any topic goes. #MSWL

Small town, haunting, road trip, island, flowers, graveyard, aerialist, lake, beach/beach house, summer, secret, eerie, key, orchard, food/recipes #MSWL
