Memoir

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · Jan 30

Hey writer friends!

I've been closed to submissions since the summer and... I'll be opening up again on March 1st!

Literary fiction! Young Adult books! SFF! Cookbooks! Quirky non-fiction and moving memoir! Here's what I'm looking for in 2019. #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/2019/01/30/man…

Memoir! This is the #1 thing I am looking for in 2019. Give me your stories that are so unbelievable they must be true, that are suspenseful, heartbreaking, dark, feminist, and topical. EDUCATED, HOW TO MURDER YOUR LIFE & SMALL FRY were some of my favorites last year. #mswl

Marisa DiNovis @dinovisms · Jan 9

Let's kick off 2019 with #mswl! I'd love to see:
- LGBTQ+ middle grade and YA, any genre, any time period!
- Contemporary YA with a spec twist (think Still Life with Tornado or Dig)
- Literally ANYTHING that evokes Tillie Walden's On a Sunbeam
- Graphic novels or memoirs

(agent #mswl continued)
-memoirs or close narrative nonfiction showcasing underrepresented experiences and unique perspectives
-middle grade contemporary with a Judy Blume vibe (fin, for now!)

Lisa Yoskowitz @LisaYoskowitz · Jan 7

(Agent novel and nonfic #mswl continued)
-Stories that show what it is to be part of multiple communities, (bonus pts for dating misadventures)
-a coming of age memoir that reads like Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, or Nina LaCour (2/3)

Lisa Yoskowitz @LisaYoskowitz · Jan 7

Agent friends, my #mswl is overflowing! Please think of me in 2019 for exciting new:
-memoirs that bring to mind a YA Educated—delving deep into an author’s journey through and/or out of an insular community
-illustrated or graphic novel middle grade nonfiction or memoir (1/3)

It's the holiday season, so I'll put a #MSWL out into the world: I'd love to have a new #DearGenius out in the market BUT written by one of our great editors of color. A memoir, a how-to, a narrative guide to succeeding in this business from a POV beyond the white center. (1/2)

Had the chance to send some feedback on a #memoir earlier today, and it prompted some thoughts on memoir-writing: bit.ly/2SbMCYW. I'd love to find a beautiful one, so do send #queries, please. #MSWL

Putting it out into the twitter universe that I am looking for more clients creating beautifully illustrated books! Graphic novels, graphic memoirs, graphic nonfiction—anything and everything you're working on, for any age group. #MSWL

Illustrated memoir or graphic novel where the main character has synesthesia or somehow experiences the world in a non-traditional way #mswl

Emmanuelle Morgen @EmMorgen · 12 Sep 2018

And my usual SF/fantasy for any age, diverse voices, YA & MG. Contemp graphic novel/memoir. #MSWL

Danielle Chiotti @daniellechiotti · 12 Sep 2018

Now for some nonfiction #mswl: cookbooks, food narrative/memoir, parenting, social issues, micro histories that bring an underrated event/person/movement to light.

Cassandra Farrin @CassaCassaCassa · 12 Sep 2018

In nonfiction, Amberjack is seeking books that expand our current list—gender and sexuality, body positivity, memoir that taps into broader human experience #MSWL

Jessica Felleman @jmfelleman · 12 Sep 2018

Memoir or novel of a woman surviving in the wilds of Alaska (or some other desolate unpopulated place) – bonus points if she “finds herself” along the way and doesn’t have to fight a bear. #nobears #mswl
