I also want non-fiction on a variety of topics including (but not limited to) love, relationships, popular culture, politics and history. Books that make complicated ideas more accessible. Also very much on the hunt for cookery and food books. 🥘🧑‍🍳

Story is key to the books I enjoy; I’m always looking for a plot to drive me through a novel and I love NF that reads almost like a story at the same time as it educates and informs. It’s also super important to me to work with authors from a wide variety of backgrounds.

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!

Anthology pitches: The industry is still not always full-steam-ahead on them, so my consideration may be a bit narrower than novels, but I’m interested, for both fiction and nonfiction. (THIS IS OUR RAINBOW and BEING ACE are favorites!)

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.

You have a few more days to submit to @HubCityPress 's nonfiction reading period! Good reasons to:

1) we love unagented work!
2) we still need a southern literary nonfiction title for 2026
3) we have good taste (imo) and love braided / lyric narratives

Non-Fic #MSWL request. I'd love to see a narrative non-fic about running—humorous & uplifting voice be great. Memoir-esque, but informative.

Author must have a platform, and ideally either will have been a competitive runner or coach/trainer but not necessary.

In NON-FICTION (the new stuff!!) I'm wading in and would love to see:

- Deep dives into nerdy topics like TTRPG’s, cosplay, fandoms, etc.
- A strong narrative voice paired with expertise, with comps like Radium Girls, The Victorian and the Romantic, Why Fish Don’t Exist
