Memoir

Penny Moore @literarypenny · Oct 5

#MSWL:

- Graphic novels by author/illustrators.
- More children’s MG and YA nonfiction, everything ranging from memoir to platform nonfiction.

If you write memoir or essay collections, show me your rawest, most honest self on the page, like Jo Ann Beard, or Alexandra Fuller. I also am looking for memoir that tells two compelling stories, such as H is for Hawk. #MSWL

#mswl also memoir/narrative nonfic that braids together research with personal experience. Kind of like 'The Crane Wife' essay, but a book, meets LAB GIRL. Extra points if it's about marine life because we all kind of wanted to be marine biologists when we were younger didnt we?

On my #MSWL:
- a heart wrenching memoir with immersive qualities and an inspiring end.
- insightful freewriting collections that put a whole new perspective on mental wellbeing.
- accessible essay collections inviting fresh viewpoints on wellbeing from #ownvoices

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

Viva Editions publishes mind/body/spirit, self-help, health/wellness, memoir, and other great nonfiction. My #MSWL for Viva includes all of these, especially more pop science, #ownvoices, humor, modern spirituality, etc! #amwriting

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

Did you know Park Row publishes narrative nonfiction? I personally love female empowerment stories, emotional memoir, Mary Roach-style journalism, & interesting untold stories/people from history. Send me the next EDUCATED! #mswl

But I don't want just narrative NF that feels like it thrives on difficulty or struggle--give me inspiring modern memoir too, where the focus is not on capital-T Trauma, but on hope and joy and everyday struggles #MSWL

#MSWL spooky nonfiction for nerdy goths. twisty-turny true crime. memoir plus research plus context. 90s/2000s nostalgia. goodnight stories for rebel girls of all ages.

Jim McCarthy @JimMcCarthy528 · Sep 24

I also reallllllly want to see nonfiction. Again, MG to adult. I love memoir. I'm also into intriguing takes on history and science, anything to do with the arts or pop culture. #MSWL

Beyond this, I have yet to ever go on submission with a good thriller or memoir, and so throwing out a desire these, in an especial way, but throw me any YA and adult fiction and non-fiction you've got, with some exceptions. Open to #queries like heck! #MSWL

Kate McKean @kate_mckean · Sep 15

I’d love to read a travel memoir by a WOC, particularly a Black American woman. #mswl

Erin Clyburn @erin_clyburn · Aug 29

-I’m outdoorsy. An avid hiker. Would love high-stakes travel/adventure memoirs.

I'm a huge foodie - so I'd love a unique cookbook, foodie memoir, or exploration into the origins of a cuisine. "Hungry" for these! #MSWL #Cookbook #nonfiction #memoir
