Dara Hyde @dzhydeSo what am I going to be looking for when I re-open to queries tomorrow 10/1 @hillnadell? A #mswl thread 🧵📚 1/
I represent a wide range of adult fiction and nonfiction, including literary and genre fiction, graphic novels, narrative nonfiction, and memoir. In the Children’s space, I represent YA and MG graphic novels, some prose YA and select picture books 2/
Today is my first day at wiley business! Here's what I'm looking to acquire: business & leadership with crossover into self-improvement, personal finance, & memoir, particularly focused on underrepresented perspectives, & bipoc, lgbtq, neurodivergent voices! #mswl
Graphic “Novel” #MSWL
🍂 realistic teen stories
🍂 graphic memoir
🍂 graphic nonfiction
🍂 psychological horror
Note: I’m currently only looking for projects created by author/illustrators (one creator both writing and illustrating the book).
Meg Reid 🦦 @megireidWe're changing up our open query period a bit! (We're shortening it). As I've said before, we receive hundreds and hundreds of queries each time we open but only realistically have 2 or 3 spots to fill.
Read more about the changes below! Dms are open for questions, etc 🪐 twitter.com/HubCityPress/s…
My #MSWL: novels; single-topic nonfiction; nonfiction projects that blend memoir/reportage; projects by BIPOC writers, non-MFAs, writers over 40.
Modern and imaginative books that redefine/interrogate the modern or historic South.
Olympic-related #MSWL: A reminder that that I'd love more narrative nonfic/memoir by athletes or about extreme sports. I'm obsessed with stories about what the human body is capable of. I recently watched the doc It's Easy Until It's Not—I'd love stories about events like this!
“YA non-fiction: Memoir, essay collections, you name it. Queer There & Everywhere is probably my favorite YA non-fic title in recent memory, and a great example of what I’d like to see.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
I thought this would be a light memoir about wine and working in the restaurant industry... instead it was a visceral memoir about Victoria's life and her time in the restaurant industry... the horrors and joys of it. I couldn't put it down. #MSWL restaurant-industry memoirs!
Soumeya B. Roberts @soumeya_bLooking to add more sensitive, brilliant novelists to my client list. I'd love to read a nature novel or memoir centering a decolonial/POC experience in the outdoors.
Also looking for more reported non-fiction on all topics.
Open for #queries, my #amquerying writers!
“With memoir, I love a story that feels like I’m reading a collection of essays. @JamesTateHill's BLIND MAN'S BLUFF and @m_scribe's WHAT WE DIDN'T EXPECT, an anthology of essays are two books I worked on that fit in that space.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Thought of another one for the #MSWL: I'm always looking for memoir/narrative nonfic about extreme sports, athletes, & adventure (think ALONE ON THE WALL, BORN TO RUN). Brought to you by me going nuts over the Olympic trials (Sha'Carri Richardson!!!).
