I would love to work on a non-fiction project about the resurgence of labor unions especially in creative spaces #mswl

I'm excited to be accepting queries again! Check out my latest + greatest #mswl. My #1 interest is #MG at the moment of all kinds and I'm also eager for #MG and #YA nonfiction including of the #GN variety!

Fall is just the perfect time for getting cozy and curling up with a great book. This week my #mswl includes a contemporary gothic horror, a boarding school setting with a twist, and a home/lifestyle/business non fiction that will help us get organized for the new season!

@jamerrson What themes, topics, styles, etc. excite you right now for picture books? #askagent

Replying to @AshleyCCongdon

Is it fair to say everything? If I had to choose, non-fiction is most exciting to me right now, and I’m especially looking for some climate/environment related stuff. But I always love funny pbs. #MSWL

#MSWL I'd love to see more timely and topical MG nonfiction! Climate, immigration, women's rights, sexual identity, economics, as well as books on role models. Plus fun nonfiction on topics kids love, like animals and weird science and history!

I'd really love to see more parenting books (guides, memoirs, etc.) by authors of color in my query box.

My wife and I had a hard time finding those when it was baby time, and I'd like to work on that. #MSWL

“With non-fiction I want to learn something by accident, tell me a good story in a fun new way that keeps me thinking. I really enjoyed Carlo Rovelli’s SIX BRIEF LESSONS ON PHYSICS.” @maureen_moretti #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

#A6 Non-fiction: I’d love to find an expert in a fascinating field, who can write with passion and real (age appropriate) depth of knowledge to bring their subject to life for young readers. #mswl #scbwichat #scbwicon19

Robbie Guillory @RobbieGuillory · Oct 2

I'm currently really interested in the relationship between cities and the rivers that run through them, from cultural, environmental and political points of view. If anyone is writing something on this send me a DM.

Why is Law & Order SVU the go-to comfort binge for so many women? It’s a show where terrible things are always happening to women. It shouldn’t make sense.

This discussion makes me feel very seen, and I would sincerely love to see some #NF proposals along the lines of how women use fictional portrayals of trauma to both prepare for and recover from the often traumatic experience of womanhood. Can be serious, funny, dark, etc. #MSWL

I have always loved the Salem Witch Trials. but I was watching a show recently on Smithsonian channel that talked about what was happening in England at the same time. FASCINATING. Give us tangential history to the well trodden paths. #MSWL

Not gonna lie: that poison dress book sounds really cool, now that I have said it. So I am going to say it: a narrative NF about poison and the non-poison uses in history. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Sep 25

Replying to @SoCalledYALife

I think a book that also talks about tough subjects would be cool. Like racial issues, a death manual (as in like how to talk about it, etc), financial planning. And why it is important TO talk about these things. There is so much that isn't talk about until BOOM! adult. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Sep 25

I want a narrative nonfiction on history. Or even facts. Like @alexandraovery keeps telling me about the dresses dyed with poison. That's just cool. #MSWL
