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.

Stephanie Doig @stephaniedoigShow 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
I'd also love something like this. I really love food, I love cooking, and I love characters who do, too. #MSWL
Elle Keck @ElleKeckI'm not normally a "foodie" reader but I would read the crap out of an enemies to lovers romance about rival restaurant owners, one who serves CaliMex (THE BEST) and one who serves TexMex. As long as CaliMex wins, obviously #MSWL twitter.com/ElleKeck/statu…
OMG. I LOVE this idea. I edited @elisalorello's PASTA WARS a few years back and adored working on a foodie book. As a Top Chef-fanatic and homesick Texan, I fully support this idea. But the TexMex chef wins. 😉 #MSWL
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
#MSWL Smart and sexy rom-coms (I want to laugh and fall in love!), epic family dramas, gritty and contemporary YA, true crime that reads like a suspense novel, anything food related (f and nf), pop science and history
On a whim I decided to watch this movie on Netflix called Ramen Shop and it's an amazing story about culture, family, love, and (of course) food.
Now I'd like a YA or MG story that explores the bonds of family and culture (especially a blended one) through food! #mswl
Is anyone else into the show Let's Eat because I'd really love a #ownvoices #DV, contemporary #YA book with the same kind of style about a MC who just lives for food. Also if it could include some mouth-watering descriptions I would appreciate it. Cool thanks! #mswl
