HUNGRY for YA, MG & adult nonfiction. #mswl pop culture, feminist issues, true crime, pop science, parenting, business from a WOMAN'S POV, relationship/dating, things no one talks about but we SHOULD, fresh & unique & a little weird & dark (DARK TOURIST, LORE, My Favorite Murder)
Allison Moore 📚 @allisonm610I studied journalism and will always have a soft spot for it -- I'd love a fascinating and teen-centric narrative journalism story like The 57 Bus, or a celebration of the power of the press like Spotlight #MSWL
Yes please. I worked for 2 years at a large metropolitan newspaper (as both a reporter and copy editor), so I'd love something with the feel and energy of the newsroom, but in a high school or jr high newspaper (since I only do kidlit). Fic or nonfic. #MSWL

I have always, ALWAYS wanted a book on this subject. Fiction, nonfiction, I'm not picky. #mswl
Exception: I am starting to seek MG & YA nonfiction graphic novels with specific appeal to the school and library market #MSWL
I love SFF with strong curricular connections that would appeal to teachers/librarians incorporating them into curriculum/pairing with classics
The other day I stumbled upon DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) Twitter, and I would LOVE to see manuscripts and short story collections (fiction and nonfic) from writers with DID. #MSWL (No need to wait until I reopen to queries on this one, but I only rep kidlit.)
In narrative nonfiction: Books about food, material culture, art, literature, and history always top the list, and I'm particularly interested in projects that explore how many of these topics intersect with race, gender, and politics. #mswl
Time for some #mswl tweets! Here are just some of the things I'm looking for right now.
In general, I rep adult mystery, romance, women's fiction, some SF/F, and upmarket projects, and love to see historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction.
I'm a sucker for history narrative nonfiction that juxtaposes two people from the same time, like THE DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY or THE PROFESSOR AND THE MADMAN. If your title is THE _____ AND THE _____, I will probably like it. #MSWL
#MSWL I'm on the hunt for wildly entertaining literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, and memoir, esp from underrepresented perspectives. Dying to see non-Eurocentric HF, refreshing romcoms a la #CrazyRichAsians, propulsive toxic female friendship stories--omg the list goes on--
I'm also looking for more nonfiction--particularly smart, accessible books about feminism, science, history, or travel; and prescriptive or art/gift books with a geeky subject. Author platform preferred! #mswl
1. #MSWL -- I want more of what I'm not known for. Past week, I've signed up two non-fiction projects, one on sports & one a guide for survivors of child sexual abuse. I follow sports, entertainment, business -- I and @awfulagent want more.
