A reminder that I work on cookbooks and I love them!
I love food. I love celebrating it. I love eating it. I love talking about it. All food is good food.
These are most of my cookbooks that I’ve worked on over the last ~8 years.
Pitch me platform driven food books! #mswl
Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburnI am down to zero queries & three subs in my query box. (I hope to hit inbox zero by July 1, but time will tell.) Either way, I'm looking forward to opening to queries July 1! Here's a little #MSWL for when I reopen:
#amquerying #writingcommunity #amagenting
1. Food-centric fic & nonfic. I would love to see narrative nonfic deep dives into culinary history & people whose stories haven't been told. Essay collections about food intersecting with culture, politics, social justice. & in fic, MG, YA, & adult fic where food plays a role.
I have such a wonderful list of authors and illustrators, but some of you may not know I have a cooking background, too. Send your cookbook or food related proposals anytime! firstname.lastname@example.org #MSWL #HGLiterary
carolyn wang @commabund#AskAPL What's on your MSWL? Are there any subjects you'd love to see more writing on?
#AskAPL Platformed health & wellness prescriptive NF, narratives about running, food, sustainability. Books that help us live better. Fresh romance & voicey romcoms, twisty mysteries with great sense of place. Surprise me!
I recently reread ALMA AND HOW SHE GOT HER NAME and it’s truly one of my all time favorites. I’d love to see more projects in my inbox exploring the things—names, food, places—that connect us with the generations before us. PB (author-illustrator only), MG/YA novel, GN. #mswl
#promoted to Assistant Editor @VikingBooks and open to submissions—send me your lyrical novels that dip into fantasy and magical realism and myth; your haunting, REBECCA-esque sublime suspense; & any ANY memoir/narrative related to FOOD. More #mswl tk.
I'm THE RIGHT agent for stories about friendship, 1st love, sex-positive teen relationships, anything art related (but especially a heist!), fighting climate change, navigating social injustice, food nerds, theatre nerds, Star Trek nerds, math nerds, nerds in general. #mswl
Starting in January I will be accepting nonfiction queries in addition to YA. Send me your memoirs, pop culture, food, lifestyle, true crime, narrative, or any combo of the above! #MSWL #Nonfiction #WritingCommunity
Samin Nosrat @CiaoSaminThough I’ve made an effort to change that over the last several years, I can’t buy what isn’t being published. I hope after reading this column, you’ll join me in asking publishers for more cookbooks from more diverse places, written by the people from those places.
On the same wavelength--give me a narrative that ties food with memoir. Or! A novel! That ties food! With story! More like Mistress of Spices, The Particular Sadness... Pardon the pun, but I'm ravenous #MSWL
#MSWL for my NF writing friends. I am always, always open to stories about food and drink, especially those with a bit of a quirk to them like this!

A lot of ppl don’t know this about me but I’m a huge #foodie. My dad made doughnuts when my brother and I were growing up, my uncle had an ice cream shop, and my aunt runs an amazing Chinese restaurant on Long Island. Send me all your foodie stories! #mswl #amagenting
Hi all! I've been on the @pagestreetkids team for a while, most recently on the marketing/PR side, but I'm excited to announce I'm now a children's editor full time! Check out my brand new #MSWL here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/kayl…
