Anjanette Barr @bookbarristaSo thrilled that the official announcement went out today that I have been promoted to Associate Agent at Dunham Literary. Eternal thanks to @JennieDunhamLit for taking a chance on me and being an excellent mentor! Now who wants a #MSWL ? 🧵
First, you can find out more about me and what I'm looking for anytime on our website: dunhamlit.com/anjanette-barr…
On my #MSWL.
ADULT NON-FICTION: Pop Culture, Illustrated Memoir, Art/Illustrated books, Graphic Novels, Current Affairs/Fresh Takes.
ADULT FICTION: Literary fiction, Poetry (very selective, underrepresented voices)
And last but not least: Memoir and narrative nonfiction! I’d especially love to work with scientists, journalists, and other experts writing on animal and nature conservation. So excited to be opening to queries, and I look forward to reading y’all’s work! 📚
"Send me YA nonfiction: memoir, essay collections, you name it. QUEER, THERE, AND EVERYWHERE is probably my favorite YA nonfiction title in recent memory, and a great example of what I'd like to see."
Meg Reid 🦦 @megireidMy #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.
boosting this CNF #MSWL on the occasion of the manuscript reading period opening on Saturday!
And, in the oddly specific: I’d really love a book about how amazing dogs are for our mental health and happiness. Could be a memoir? Could be a how to deal with the grief when we lose one of these precious friends. Had to say goodbye to my best girl this summer. Here's my gem:
As someone who would rather be on a mountain than anywhere else, I’d love to see anything that takes a look at the #environment and #health and #wellness. The more memoir and thoughtful, the better. Also, the more science-y because science is GOOD./
@HCI_Books we’re always looking for books in self-help and psychology, health and wellness, inspiration, relationships, memoirs, mind/body/spirit integration. Here's my #MSWL coming at you, #agents and #writers! A thread on books I want:/
#MSWL: #Lifestyle titles (see Kate Oliver’s The Modern Caravan), humorous or visually-driven projects, (see @NatalyaLobanova's Everyone is Awful), and #business books that read like memoir (Tony Hsieh's Delivering Happiness is one of my all-time faves).
I’m thrilled to announce I’m a new Literary Associate at Olswanger Literary! I’ll open to submissions on September 1, accepting adult fiction and nonfiction.
If you think we might be a match (my tastes are wide & varied) please query me in September!
"With memoir, I love a story that feels like I'm reading a collection of essays. @JamesTateHill's BLIND MAN'S BLUFF, & @m_scribe's anthology of essays on premature birth, WHAT WE DIDN'T EXPECT, are two books that fit in that space."
I am open to queries again! Check out my updated #MSWL. Seeking:
⭐️NF: memoir, narrative, pop science, self-help, cookbook
⭐️ F: literary, upmarket, horror, thriller, low-fantasy, high-fantasy adventure
⭐️ YA: low fantasy, rom-com, detectives, creepy
