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.

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

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
