Nonfiction

In nonfiction, Amberjack is seeking books that expand our current list—gender and sexuality, body positivity, memoir that taps into broader human experience #MSWL

This #mswl is for non-fiction-- I love business history. I'd like some fun business history for a popular audience. #twitterstorians, where are you?

Natalie M. Lakosil @Natalie_Lakosil · 12 Sep 2018

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)

⚡I was inspired by my recent visit to the @museumofscience! Would love to find a narrative nonfiction #PB about lightning, storms, and/or electricity! ⚡ #MSWL

I 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

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

Michelle Witte @michellewitte · 12 Sep 2018

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

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 12 Sep 2018

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.

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I really want fiction and nonfiction that focuses on internet culture, like SO YOU'VE BEEN PUBLICLY SHAMED or the movie "Ingrid Goes West." #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I want fiction and nonfiction on hot contemporary topics. Police brutality, immigration, white supremacists/the alt-right, etc. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I also want fresh prescriptive nonfiction with a strong platform in business, self-help, relationships, parenting, etc. Maybe a guidebook in an untapped market that has a large audience. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

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

Natalie Hallak @NatalieHallak · 12 Sep 2018

#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--

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I'd love to get more narrative nonfiction with a strong platform. Maybe something pop science-y, psychology-y, true crime, flashy history, memoir. #MSWL

Jill Marr @jilliganjonze · 12 Sep 2018

Just realized it's #MSWL today! I'd LOVE to see some compelling Adult Narrative NF about a little-known part of history, a story that may be part of a bigger, more well-known story--but not-yet explored.

Erik Hane @erikhane · 12 Sep 2018

Otherwise, in nonfiction: culture essays, sports (as long as it comes with a broader non-sport ramification), history, science, all those upmarket NF categories. #MSWL

Caitlin McDonald @literallycait · 12 Sep 2018

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

Joshua Bilmes @jabbermaster · 12 Sep 2018

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.
