I’d be ecstatic to find more nonfiction for any age. I particularly swoon for memoirs, popular history, social commentary, and pop culture. Recent loves: Laymon’s Heavy, Chee’s How to Write an Autobiographical Novel, Westover’s Educated. #MSWL
Jim McCarthy @JimMcCarthy528Hello, friends! Haven’t been here in awhile and probably won’t be popping back in too much for reasons I won’t bore you with. But I wanted to open the year with some #MSWL. I’m always on the lookout!
I’d love to find some wonderful author-illustrators in any space from middle-grade to adult in fiction or nonfiction. Can be for pure graphic novels or more mashed-up, partially illustrated projects! #MSWL
I'd be interested to see a YA nonfiction guide to money that acknowledges the gig economy, high cost of secondary education, lack of pensions, etc. How can today's teens/late millennials prepare for a much different financial reality than previous generations? #mswl
This year, I'd love to see more trade non-fiction for children and teens that goes beyond a traditional biography! Show me science, history, cultural movements, our planet, etc. in ways I haven't seen before! (bonus points if it's a graphic novel!) #NonFiction #pb #mg #ya #mswl
I've reopened to queries and represent fiction, non-fiction and illustration for children and teens! (Sorry, I don't represent works for adults, but a lot of my lovely @bookendslit colleagues do!)
You can query me at queryme.online/tmarchini #mswl #amquerying
Andrea Walker @_AndreaWalker_While working on my shiny new website & compiling my #MSWL for 2019, I noticed one theme transcending the categories: outer space.
I’ll expand on this a bit but please note, I’m NOT open to queries at this time. By referral only.
I’d love a #PB that’s a lyrical exploration of the stars, moon, and/or Mars.
A #MG at space camp.
Or #YA Historical in a town close to the Kennedy Space Center during the Apollo program.
Nonfiction- anything and everything space
#MSWL for 2019
Sylvia Liu @artsylliuMicrochimerism: where your mother's or children's cells live on in you & can help or hinder your health. Eg your child's fetal cells can repair your heart, prevent breast cancer & Alzheimer's; your mom's cells can prevent preeclampsia. #science #sciencefact twitter.com/newscientist/s…
This is *wild* to think about... (#mswl nonfiction for middle grade or YA readers)
Feeling very hungry for narrative non-fiction these days! Some 2018 non-fiction I have LOVED (but not repped): Educated (duh, who didn't?), All You Can Ever Know, The Personality Brokers, The Real Lolita, I'll Be Gone In The Dark, Dead Girls, I Am I Am I Am. #MSWL
Amanda Jain @wensday95A reminder that Julia Child was an intelligence officer for the CIA during WWII. Oh, hey, also a reminder that I would very much like a novel about this. #mswl
For January 2019 #MSWL
Sports. Sports in YA F. In YA rom. In A rom. Nonfiction if it’s exceptional but I’ll be picky here. LGBT sports. I want the female QB and the female cheer captain - OR male QB and male cheer capt!
