Strong storytelling skills are as important in nonfiction as they are in fiction. Structure and language are key.

For nonfiction, platform is important. Academics who own their subject, who’ve done more thinking and research about it than anyone else, stand out. But your writing chops are what makes it sellable.

FOR NONFICTION, I acquired history for years as an editor. I love big, bold, definitive books that shake up how we think of a person or event.

Picture Books #MSWL :
☑️ Non-Fiction (biography, STEM, history preferrable. This is also the ONLY place I will consider anthropomorphism: talking objects/animals)
☑️ themes of grief
☑️ break down gender stereotypes
☑️ variety of family structures

Super specific #MSWL based on the fact I’m massive history nerd: fiction and non-fiction about or inspired by Henry VII of England. (Yes, VII, not VIII.)

I am ALWAYS on the lookout for exciting nonfiction projects. Really looking for narrative nonfiction about science, pop culture, and history. Not looking for memoir, (unless you are a well known musician or member of a well known band 😁😎). #MSWL

Nonfiction from experts in these fields: entertainment, science, medicine, nature, lifestyle, or home and business organization, the most significant factor being cultural and global impact (should have published works in journals/periodicals; a mailing or substack) #MSWL

I am open to queries! I need to prioritize current authors, so right now there are very specific types of books that I will be paying closer attention to.

Submission instructions are at dunhamlit.com, and this graphic will hopefully also help you plan when to query me.
