Sparingly open to nonfiction in picture books, from educational to memoir.

I'm open to bios; I prefer underrepresented subjects (NIKI NAKAYMA: A CHEF’S TALE IN 13 BITES by Debbi Michiko Florence).

Informative with some wit, like Mary Roach for kids!

my nonfiction #mswl : memoir, anthologies, and single narrative nonfiction about all facets of Southern culture / by writers who claim the South as home. Essay collections but need to truly sing (and be complete). Proposals and in-prog okay for longer narrative projects.

I would love a how-to mixed with memoir about farming. Be it a small mom and pop farm OR how large farming can operate in a sustainable manner. #mswl

"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."

I'm also redoubling my efforts to scout out sharp, voice-y narrative nonfiction—journalism, arts & pop culture, hidden history, accessible but expertly researched social science, unconventional essays/memoir, anything with a progressive slant and a sense of humor #MSWL

MEMOIRS

7. I’m very particular about memoirs. It needs to read like fiction. Memoir Plus is huge right now; your personal struggles being affected by a universal external circumstance. A memoir is not a diary of your life; it’s a specific event that greatly impacted your life.
