Memoir

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · Jan 6

It begins. I'm open to queries again at @PSLiterary!

You can check out my #MSWL over on my blog.

Happy New Year, let's make some books. ericsmithrocks.com/blog/2019/12/2…

I open up to queries again at @PSLiterary on Monday, so I've updated my wishlist!

I'd love to see more adult fiction and non-fiction this year. Send me your messy genre-blending stories, niche cookbooks, and complex memoirs.

Details on the blog! ericsmithrocks.com/blog/2019/12/2… #MSWL

Hi Twitterverse: thrilled to announce I'm scouting for Hill Nadell agency in LA. Here's my #mswl: Literary fiction (broad, I know); thrillers with great character development and female leads (think Tana French); memoirs with a focus on the natural world (think H Is for Hawk) 📚

#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.

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
