I would love unique cookbook concepts by Black and Indigenous bloggers as well as non-fiction by BIPOC food writers #mswl

I receive almost no cookbooks/food-related nonfiction, & I'd love to see more of those, too. #MSWL

Today I learned all about Lena Richard, a New Orleanian & the first Black woman to host her own cooking show (also a chef, restaurateur, entrepreneur, & cookbook author). My dad’s family has been in New Orleans since the 1800s, & I’d never heard of Lena. 1/2

I’d LOVE to rep a project about Lena Richard. Narrative nonfiction? A cultural history of Black New Orleans food that centers Lena? A bio of Lena through a lense like The Cooking Gene? If you’d like to take this on (are already taking this on?!), query me please. 2/2 #MSWL #BVM

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

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

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.
